Personally, I think the food they sell on this website is just junk food. I try to eat real, unprocessed foods like meat, fish, veggies, fruit, dairy, etc. When I want Snacks I go for dried fruit and nuts or snacks in small portions. Yes, I eat real or artificially sweetened treats sometimes too, but I try to limit it.

Most of the things on this website have TONS of calories! But, I love the message boards 🙂

Congrats on your weight loss. That’s fantastic.

I’m a real food person too. I didn’t touch another shake or Protein supplement powder from the start of purées in week three. I got all my protein & nutrients from the real food I made which was always my intention - to start establishing my new eating habits, food preferences, etc. & develop a sustainable way of eating from as early on as I could. We can not live on supplements & shakes alone.

It worked as by month 8 I was totally off my Multivitamins & I continued to lose. Just watched my portions, met my protein goal & ensured I included a variety of vegetables, whole/multi grains, dairy & fruit in my diet. Still do.

I snack on yoghurt, nuts, multi grain crackers, hummus, Protein Bar (my exception as I developed a protein malabsorption issue post gall removal & the bar helps me ensure I meet my now higher protein goal), fruit, peanut paste. I have a couple of purchased Snacks in my cupboard which I eat occasionally (baked chick peas/fava Beans, freeze dried mango, nut clusters) like once a month when I stay with my mum or if travelling.

You’ll find what works best for you & if that’s including shakes or protein powders in your diet that’s fine.

Congratulations on your loss. I haven’t yet shopped from the Bariatric Pal Store. I do buy low calorie Snacks from the grocery store that are empty calories though and have them on occasion. It’s obviously better if you can find ones you like with Protein added so it actually fills you up. Keep up the good work.

      It's Saturday!!! My fiance and I are out doing yard work and I made the mistake of not staying hydrated before going out so now my body is shaking and weak. I have my pre-op appointment Tuesday, the 2nd and I am trying my hardest to lose another 2 lbs by then.

        You got this!! When I had the sleeve I cried every day during the liquid phase, It was during the super-bowl! I was sooo hungry I sucked on a piece of pork rind. LOL
