    Congrats on your weight loss! You are doing great!
    Can you find a snack that you like that is not high in calories? I like to go back to broth. It taste good and it's low in fat and calories.

    I often have cravings around TOM, usually one week before. I mostly crave sweets, so I would have one square of dark chocolate but only after I had protein first (one boiled egg for example) or protein and veggie, then the chocolate. Having only dark, because the taste is so strong it prevents me from having more.
    But I also had crazy cravings when my iron was too low. I had anemia before the sleeve and it got worth post op, even with all the supplements I take. I learned a few weeks ago that because of my numerous health issues (IBS, anemia etc) my supplements should have had a higher dose (like double the iron) since day one. When my iron level is fine I do have less cravings, but it's still there around TOM unfortunately..

    When I am craving something sweet I either have a sugar free popsicle or a chocolate protein shake. I have been fortunate enough to not have any strong cravings so far. I am 10 weeks post op.
