Hello all! My surgery went well, not feeling any pain. I follow all directions for diet. I eat the 4oz of high Protein puree food and not even 2 hours later, I am starving. I am drinking my Water and getting the daily recommended 65 grams of protein. Is this normal? What to do to stop the hunger? I want to be successful in this.

You are breaking that food addiction and it's your mind reading that signal as hunger, when in fact you are really thirsty. You need to try and drink upwards of 100 oz.of Water a day and retrain yourself to remind yourself that you're not hungry your body is thirsty. Things have changed now and once you up your water intake you will fill a big difference. You want to keep yourself really hydrated as it's really easy to get dehydrated and get constipated. Once you've dealt with bad Constipation a few times like I have, you'll keep on top of it too. Just remember your not hungry your body needs water 😉

You’re most likely experiencing head hunger. The mind is a powerful organ & you have to retrain it so it knows what real hunger is (not habit eating or emotional eating or craving eating) & to understand what portion size is actually enough food. It takes time to break all your old eating habits & learn new ones or at least manage them better.

Also stomach acid can make you feel hungry when you’re not. Esomeprazole will help with that. If you weren’t prescribed any ask your team for a script.

Good luck.

Is that the same as omeprazole? I am currently taking that.

They are both PPIs, so you would not take both. They are not the exact same drug, but they both do the same thing. It would help with stomach acid which can cause you to feel "hungry".

I found when I have any type of feeling that resembles hunger, i drink hot lemon or ginger tea. The feeling immediately goes away! Good Luck!

      WOW by the Grace of God 17 years ago I went to Mexico and had a lap band put on for weight loss and my waist was 64 inches and That’s more than 5 foot around and 18 stone  my weight was 375 pounds. Today I went shopping for not sweats and I succeeded. I found pants and a shirt at an awesome price at Burlington by the way. But the real story here is, today. My waist is 45 inches and my weight is 260. Both incredible numbers but think about this. My waist is almost 20 inches smaller around Wow that’s a brain wrecker.  Still, I love my band  I even celebrate it’s birthday 10-26-06 FYI-it’s kind of like choking yourself, and never letting go. And trying to eat. lol Life is good

      Hi all! I’m Heidi, a Canadian ex-Pat living in Sydney, Australia. I’m doing this surgery because my mom died 10 years ago from obesity, she lived her own 600lbs life.  So at 116kg, it’s time to make sure my daughters don’t lose their mom to obesity.

      Drinking my favorite Premier Protein Shake for breakfast, and planned a nice healthy lunch today. Protein first, Veg second, then fruit, and carbs last.  💪
