    Re: Hello

    I do agree with Lisa for the sodium, but also leg cramps can show up when you are magnesium deficient. You should get a blood test just for peace of mind, or make sure your multi vitamin does have...

    Re: Pre Op Diet... I need help

    Can you contact your team's nut and ask her if you can change the guideline?

  12. Re: 6 week anniversary -- and still on the stall. No weight loss since surgery. In a dark place.

    Hello,

    I was a very slow loser and actually gained ten pounds on the day of the surgery (it's always that way) because meds do make me gain weight.

    Re: Head hunger and grazing...

    Fruits and tomatoes have sugar so it could actually make you hungry because it's raising your insulin. I would say to eat ham, cheese, protein first even for snacks. But did you have a blood test...
