Am I doing this all wrong?



Recommended Posts

I am on full liquids and 10 days post OP. I am having no issue eating/ drinking my Soup. I just ate 7oz of cream potato soup (minus potato) no problem in like 5 to 10 minutes. I feel like I could keep going and not feel restricted. Same with Water. I can do more than just tiny sips. Also I feel hungry all the time. Help me please.

I had rny on 10/9/19

SW 289 and down to 261.

Fluids aren’t really going to give you that “full” feeling. Once you start food, you’ll feel it

Are you getting enough Protein? Most Soups are very low in protein and high carb. The more carbs or hidden sugars, the hungrier you will feel. Getting 50-60 grams of protein a day will keep you full longer. Also the type of protein helps. A blend of whey and casein protein, the casein keeps you full. I use PEScience select Protein Powder. It works well mixed with yogurt too.

if you like soups there is Unjury protein broth. BariatricPal Store has a good variety of soups too. There is a sale until the 21st on their brand of products. They even have a broth with Vitamins.

They gave me those one ounce cups after surgery and told me to drink 3 ounces of Water and 2 ounces of Protein Shakes in one hour. That lasted about 1 day for me. I told the husband just give me a normal 8 ounce Protein Drink and a normal cup of water. I drink normal. I cant chug water like i used to but I don't sip it either. I put away 32 ounces of water in about 30 minutes. I also felt hungry while on the liquid diet. My mom reminded me that it is head hunger not stomach hunger. So every time I thought I felt hungry, I would tell myself I was thirsty instead. You'll feel more human again once you start solids.

That was the hardest part for me in the liquid diet. Just didnt feel normal. Felt like I was starving, my pee was weird, my insides felt weird. I even convinced myself I smelled different. It can play some serious mind games with you for sure.

I had bypass on 9/24. I am recovering well. Energy is still lacking though.

      Currently waiting on a surgery date. Hope to hear soon. I have been fighting for the sleeve surgery for 10 years. I am so ready!

        I haven't pooped in a weed and I'd love a 4 pound poo right now lol

      2. ms.sss

        Lol, yeah, I've been known to drop 3-ish lbs after a good (and long awaited) poop.

        .....or even after a moderate to severe dumping episode. yikes.

      I met with my surgeon on Friday.. I've completed all my tests and all my nutrition meetings as well as meeting the weight loss requirements for my insurance. We are officially submitting to insurance for approval and I was given a surgery date of January 16th 2020 (13 days before my birthday!) Fingers crossed all goes through

      Ok, now im getting old...my body gets me up at my normal 5am dog walk even when it's the weekend, vacation, and most importantly when I'm sick. So now that I have more energy, my body wants to make sure I suffer even longer during the day when I have a cold! Damn being healthy again! (:D)
