    Re: Surgery location

    I would look for one that's a "Center of Excellence." It's a lot of extra work they have to go through to prove they are one of the best. I would also look into complication insurance. I was self...

    Re: My journey starts February 3, 2020

    Re: Eating More Plant Based and Less Meat

    I just did the basic one he talked about in a video, but he has a whole book on them. Fill the ninja blender with greens (I used spinach), skim milk (wrong!!), banana, and frozen fruit. I used...

    Re: Eating More Plant Based and Less Meat

    Just watched a video that recommends that as the basis of our diet.

    Re: Hi all!

    I can definitely eat more now at 6 years out than at the beginning. But I still have restriction. When I eat the right stuff (like a chicken breast) I still get full quickly. But where I used to...
