    Re: Not Enough Calories and Protein

    I think you are reading it wrong... Syntrax Nectar is 25 calories and 6-7g protein per 1/4 scoop. So if you are getting 25g protein from it, you are using a full scoop - which is 100 calories. The...

  6. Re: Question for those women at normal BMI on maintenance?........

    Yes - you are light years ahead of where I was. I lost about 45-50 pounds and thought I looked "good" til I took progress pictures and wanted to die. I looked terrible. I looked anoretic from the...

    I am 43 years old, 3.75 years out, 130-135 pounds at 5'5in and 17% body fat right now. I have been seriously lifting weights for 1.5 years now (wish, wish, wish, wish I had started MUCH sooner!). I...
  8. Re: How do YOU personally achieve your protein goals?

    I am 3.75 years out, and I have been weight lifting for about 1.5 years. I eat nearly 2000 calories a day (on purpose - yes its hard), and I average 160g protein. Obviously you dont need that much,...

    Re: Weight Gain Anyone?

    Yes I have experienced that. Yes it is very normal to gain a few pounds in the first few weeks of weight training (its water to repair muscles, it is totally worth it and will go away and take more...

    Re: My Taste buds are Gone

    Metallic taste is usually due to ketosis - which we all get into almost automatically because after eating protein there is no room for carbs. Try upping your carbs a little.. (protein first still...

    Re: I feel hungry five weeks out

    For people that soon out, the most likely cause of hunger is excess stomach acid. If they did not automatically put you on a few months of an acid reducer, call and ask or just get it over the...

    Re: Passed out

    Definitely sounds like reactive hypo - a relatively common side effect of WLS. If it happens within a certain time (30-90 minutes?) after eating a higher carb or simple carb , that is likely it. If...

    Re: Too Much Protein?

    I regularly get over 150g protein (I am 5'5" and range between 130 and 135 pounds), which my doctor is fine with. Her only cautions were

    Re: 3 years post op!!!

    I will let others answer, but I dont see a problem with this. What I do though to up my protein intake is to replace anywhere you use milk with a vanilla premade protein shake. I use the Premier...
  17. Re: What other options do we have post sleeve????

    I havent had time to read through all the responses, but if it hasnt been said - start lifting weights. The more muscle you have as a base, the higher your BMR. If you keep eating the same, your...

    Re: Help please

    Seriously - take omeprazole or something (or even both cycled) regularly for a few months. Many WLS doctors require you to take them the first few months after surgery. Excess stomach acid in a...

    Re: Help! I'm not losing weight!

    Weight loss is not linear! Some people lose relatively consistently week to week, some stair step losing 2-3 weeks then pausing 1-2 weeks, some people fluctuate going down then up then down...

    Re: Help please

    1) Yes, talk to your team or nutritionist
    2) Yes, increase calories. At your weight, you will still lose rapidly anyway, and that is really a low number.
    3) Start taking an antacid or reflux med...

    Re: Need to lose 10 lbs

    At this point you are "normal". You will lose weight the way everyone else does - diet and exercise, eating less calories than you burn.

    1) How many calories do you burn? If you did not do any...
  22. Re: Remember your sleeve is shrinking muscle

    I am sorry, but no. Your stomach is a muscle, but if you are eating to the point of pain, you are eating too much at one time. People whose stomach is sleeved should not feel pain when eating...
