    Re: Considering private gastrc sleeve

    Hi
    I'm in NZ and it was 3 weeks from initial consultation to surgery and that was so that I could do 3 weeks of pre op diet.

    We have some great protein bars that are manufactured here in NZ that I love but I'm not sure that you would be able to source them in the US.

    They are called "Nothing Naughty". They are not...

    I had one incision that seemed to be more uncomfortable than the other.
    Maybe just check with your surgeon that it is to be expected.

    Re: Sargento balanced breaks

    At face value they don't look too bad although 180 calories is quite a lot for a snack. The fat will come from the cheese and cashews, the sugar from the raisins.

    My snacks, if I have them,...

    PS the liquid pre op diet was the worst part of the whole process and even then it wasn't all that bad as I knew it had an end date. It's totally worth doing it right so that your surgeon has better...

    Haven't heard of them sorry but you are right to be careful of anything new and investigate if you can.
    Snacking in general isn't a great idea and if you do perhaps choosing some good protein snack...

    I took progress photos as I went along. I haven't posted them though. The difference is astounding. You forget what you looked like before surgery.
