  1. Re: Carbonated beverages 6 months + after surgery?

    Re: Frustrated

    I’m guessing you aren’t eating enough regular food. 800 calories at 3 months out seems a bit low. Get your fluids in and increase your calories some and see if that helps

    Re: An anniversary that came and went

    Great job Jan. At times I have similar thoughts about the new, slimmer me. Especially when it comes to chairs. I still look at a chair checking to see if it’s strong enough to support my weight. ...

    Re: Breakfast Anyone?

    Breakfast can be anything. Mine is eggs and some leftover protein (steak, bacon). Cream of wheat gives you iron and fiber, add some peanut butter and you have fat and protein.

    I don't think regain is inevitable. Plenty of folks on this forum lost their excess weight and kept it off. For me it was changing my way of thinking about food and being active. It's been three...

    my opinion, if what you're doing isn't working (i.e. stall) change what you're doing. Track your food to see exactly how much protein you're getting, drink more water, change exercise routine,...

    Re: Stagnant and Getting Frustrated

    What food do you eat on a typical day? Try to eat real protein instead of the bars (eggs, turkey, chicken, tuna, etc). I started walking the day after surgery and haven't looked back.

    A serving of Genepro is 15 grams but supposedly that same serving size has 30 grams of protein. If it sounds to good to be true, it probably is.
