Wondering about stretching your pouch?

While I know that I haven't stretched my pouch, I find myself craving chocolate often... Anyone have any suggestions for stopping or circumventing these cravings?

Same! I was never a chocolate craver before surgery!

I went through a chocolate craving for a while. I bought some 60% cacao chips and put them in the freezer. In the evening I would eat about a tablespoon of them WITH some almonds to add some Protein. It was a nice little treat. Don't need it now. I also have chocolate Protein Drinks for a quick Meal Replacement in a pinch.

I also love adding 1tbsp of cocoa powder (Hershey's Extra Dark) with a sprinkle of ground cinnamon to hot decaff coffee in the evenings. Feels like you're sinning for no extra sugar or artificial sweetener. :) Great polyphenols, a hit of magnesium, Fiber, and serious satisfaction for very very few cals. Add some canned whipped cream for about 10 cals and <1g of carb to feel even more decadent!

      Hey October Surgery friends...how are you doing? I've lost 15 lbs since surgery on 18th.42 lbs overall. Wearing clothes that feel great. Had a bout of cold and stomach flu and still having some nausea off and on after that but getting better, I think. 
      Seems like I fill up and have minor pain quicker when I eat hot foods rather than cold. Anyone else notice this?
      Still sooo glad I did this.

        I had surgery Oct 29. Lost 35#. Plateau now. But seeing what clothes fit now is encouraging.
