Just take it one day at a time. You're going to feel hungry. Some people say or claim their hunger disappeared and some it did not. I am 14 months post RNY and I am one of the ones that it did not. So be sure you get your fluids in. A good app to use is Baritastic. You can track your food, liquids, set reminders for your Vitamins, to drink, to eat, whatever. Its really helpful. A good rule to utilize to ensure you are getting in adequate Fluid is drink 8 of fluids, wait 30 to 45 minutes then eat. Then wait 30-45 minutes afterwards and eat. If you do this prior to and after Breakfast, lunch, dinner and 1 snack a day thats 8 - 8 oz glasses of fluids a day equating to your minimum of 64. Getting your liquids in keeps you hydrated, full longer. But its always good to aim for more.... Think 1/2 your body weight... If you can. But atleast 64. And that includes all liquids (water, milk, Protein Shakes, broth, Soup, etc).

Be sure you get your Protein in. That will also help keep you full and for longer. eggs are on the soft food stage. Ricotta bake. Mixing unflavored Protein Powder with a bit of Water to smooth consistency and then adding it to Soups and other soft stage recipes will also help you get in some added protein. Just dont go over 30g of protein in a meal or drink because anything over 30 your body doesnt process and it basically just goes to waste.

I loved mixing a packet of sugar free Jello or sf pudding mix with low fat cottage cheese and sf cool whip on the soft stage. Its not only a yummy sweet treat but its protein and you can add protein powder to it too for extra protein.

      Hi I'm Sam, currently 7 seven years out of VSG and looking into revision due to weight gain. 
      I'll be the first to say I lived life a little too hard and am looking for a second chance at a healthier life.

      Lololol...sad but true.. make sure you have probiotics in your diet daily. It helps your b m not have the horrible odor since we do not have the duodenum. I don't understand why they take that part out but they shouldn't leave it. Everything you eat and you can smell. But when you get back to normal eating it is off the chain.

      I had surgery on September 27th and I am one of the very blessed ones that have had no pain to speak of besides a couple days of gas pain. I have lost 9 lb since surgery, and I am feeling a little like I should have lost more by now. Is that realistic? Or am I being too fussy?
