not sure when you had your surgery, but a lot of lose our sense of hunger for a few months. I pretty much lost interest in food, too - it was sort of a chore to eat. I wish that was still true, but alas...my hunger came back at five months out.

Yes, I had days like that. Very often actually. It’s why I stated eating to a routine - to ensure I got in some calories & nutrients. I didn’t mind if I didn’t eat all my portion but as long as I ate something nutritious. I felt this was really important when I was losing.

My hunger started to come back at about 18 months but I still have times I’m just not hungry. Now on these days I’ll drop my Snacks but still try to keep to my meals. I also tend to favour meals I pre made & froze on non hungry days. No fussing just reheat so I don’t lose what little enthusiasm I have for eating messing about prepping a meal.

Good luck.

Yes, I'm 4 weeks out and while I rarely experience true hunger most days I still have a desire to eat. Some days though I just don't want to put anything into my body at all. It's rough. I find it easier to eat on the days I'm in a good routine like going in to my office for work, but if I'm home or it's the weekend it's so much harder for me to find the will to eat. However, I feel like garbage if I'm not properly hydrated and hitting Protein so it's a vicious circle. I just kind of have to force myself to eat anyway and get past it.

I know this is a weird thing to say, but...enjoy it while you can. For most of us, hunger comes roaring back sometime within the first year, and then things become much more challenging. It'll never in your life be easier to lose weight than it will right now, when you don't give a flip about food. In retrospect, I wish my hunger had never come back!!!

I have zero hunger or desire for food since my surgery on April 19th.

For dinner tonight, my son pan seared two filets with butter and garlic for his Dad and himself with roasted asparagus [my favorite meal] and it smelled amazing, but I had no desire for any of it. My husband said he was sorry I couldn't eat any of the filet yet and I told him it wasn't bothering me at all!

I do hope I will enjoy food again in the future [in smaller quantities]...but right now, if I didn't need it to survive, I wouldn't eat.

        I ended up having the surgery on March 1st.

      June 17th is almost here. Picked up everything I need for my after surgery needs. After work will go home and finish packing a light overnight bag to make sure I don't forget anything. And the final countdown begins. Not nervous at all just looking forward to the call for my arrival time.

      I am 19 days post op and I am still struggling to drink the fluids. I am not even able to drink the protein shakes their now nasty to me , I tried the protein bars & it didn’t end well. I have chest pains & I can barely eat. I am weak & my mouth is always dry, and feeling nauseous. Can anyone provide any advise. At least I doing the vitamins. Recently my chest & stomach have a burning sensation.

        I had a very difficult time finding protein shakes that tasted okay and didn't make me sick. I ended up drinking FairLife Core Power protein shakes. I love the chocolate (tastes like chocolate milk to me). I like to blend it with some ice and PB2 powder (or real PB) to give the smoothie consistency. I also found that if I put Panera's Turkey Vegetable soup through the blender, I could eat it. I survived off those two things. My chest pains were from the gas, which was incredibly bad and took so much longer than I expected to resolve. I'd definitely stay away from bars or anything solid until you've conquered liquids. I'd love to tell you the dry mouth will get better soon, but it didn't for me for a very long time (months). The plus to that was that I drank a ton of water. The good new is I suspect you are close to the light at the end of the tunnel on this first and hardest part of the journey. It gets SO much easier after this part.

        I am 2 days post-op and really struggling with everything. My depression isn't helping any. I couldn't even finish one shake today and swallowing meds is just excruciating.

      I am a week post op and I honestly feel like crap! I keep feeling so nauseous and I can’t get my self to drink a good amount of water. I honestly feel very regretful today. When does it get better?

        By the third week you will feel some relief. Don't push yourself too much with quantity that first week. I just made sure to keep sipping and walking which helped me feel better.

        I hear you. This has been the hardest day for me so far (2 days post-op).

      I honestly haven’t weighed myself since surgery, looking forward to doing it!
