    Re: Protein drinks

    So I finally tried the Premier Protein shakes and they're ok. I like the EAS better. Granted the Premier has double the protein (and calories) but the EAS go down smoother for me and taste better. ...

  3. Re: Will be getting wls in June-Have a question

    Squats, crunches, modified push ups, lunges (those kill my thighs), leg lifts, and weights. I also run 3x a week. If you do only cardio you'll get more jiggly but adding toning/weights helps.
  4. Re: How long does it take consume water post open?

    Side note- I have an easier time drinking my latte than water. I also bring a 12 oz green tea that I brew and cool. The tea is also easier than the water.
  5. Re: How long does it take consume water post open?

    It takes me all day and I have to consciously drink. I count all my fluids. If I counted only water I'd be screwed. It takes me about 3 hours to drink my 12 oz latte. (7-10 am). I eat a few nuts...
  6. Re: Will be getting wls in June-Have a question

    I was in a precarious situation because I could not get under a certain weight if I wanted my insurance to pay for it. But I did work out. Once approved, I was able to do the pre op and lose...

  9. Re: How long does it take consume water post open?

    It takes a while. And most likely you will be counting other liquids not just water. But you'll get there. I guess it is different for each person. I know it took me a long time to be able to get...

    Good luck finding a surgeon. I know that is hard when you have to make a decision to go to another country.

    Re: 3 days post-op

    Empty stomach can make you feel queasy. I always feel better when I've eaten. I think it's possibly blood sugar. Because I also feel sick if I wait too long to eat. I try to have a protein bar on...

  14. Re: Hotel Buffet Breakfast Suck, And other things...

    Compression socks for the long flight. Make sure you have your vitamins. Stay hydrated. You'll be surprised how much you'll drop in 2 months. Just know you most likely won't be able to eat more...

    Re: . Nauseated now 3.5 wks. Post op

    Warm liquids usually help me with my nausea and not drinking water but something like iced tea. ( I make mixed berry green tea with Splenda into iced tea.) But definitely some warm broth or creamed...

    How was your walk? is the phrase. Sorry, I am 1/2 Italian. :) At any rate, Italian breakfasts are not what you normally find in the US. While hotels will provide eggs, deli meats, yogurts,...

    Re: I'm new here.

    Welcome Jen! Congrats on your success so far! You should definitely be able to eat foods by now. I don't think it is the hernia repair causing that. I suggest that you speak with your surgeon. I...

    It's a great sign when they know your insurance requirements. My surgeon's office knew mine as well and I got approved no problem. As for seeing the 130's I think you could if you put your mind to...
