Pre surgery carb load cravings

  1. dhopkins56
    I am having difficulty controlling my wanting to load up on carbs. The pre diet syndrome! I am now drinking protein shakes and do ok until later in the day...then so easy to fall into a binge. My surgery is scheduled for June 10th. And only have to do the 3 day liquids. It if I don't try to maintain until then I could easily put on another 10 lbs for sure!

    I would clean out your pantry and fridge of the items you are tempted with. If you only have good foods to eat and snack on, it helps with self control.

    I did this too. But since the surgery it is ALOT easier. Knowing we have to heal and take care of our sleeves is what makes it easier. I was just telling my daughter last night that the weight I have lost so far is ALL ME. You don't really get to use the sleeve as a tool until you start solids and have the restriction. It's much more reality after surgery so just do the best you can. Good luck

    I always made sure I had cheese sticks in the fridge, and I'd eat one of those whenever I had a craving. 2 weeks of protein sounds great, but can be boring! I don't like most of the few vegies that were allowed, but lettuce with low-carb salad dressing was a daily treat! You can do this! Once you stop the carbs, it does get easier!
