Liver Reduction Diet
Best wishes on your journey.
I can eat as much as I want...I just don't want much.
I'm ashamed of what I did for a Klondike bar...
I find myself eating a lot of lunch meat and string cheese. (I eat out of convenience more often than not).
The folks at Clarion are the best - they have been so helpful to me. Enjoy your journey.
Thanks so much for responding to me. I was feeling really overwhelmed when I posted that. I have been trying my hardest and have stuck to this thing. I just worry if I am eating too much meat or veggies all the time? I feel like I am living on salads. It is starting to get boreing. Thanks for the ideas. I will try that.
You have had your surgery in March this year? How are you doing? Any regrets? Are you eating regular food now? If so what are you not able to eat is there a lot? See I worry about later like social gatherings with family like birthday parties and bbq's no cake and ice cream no pasta salads etc.... I sound terrible worrying about those foods dont I. I worry something is wrong with me. I know those foods got me here today in trouble and bad health. I know I should not eat them. So what is the worry I have I don't get it. I think it is more someone saying I cannot eat something and what some family members are going to think and say.
Just a little bit about me I am in very very poor health. On oxygen, diabetes, apnea, anemic, liver problems, osteoporosis, high bp, high cholest, asthma, immune deficiency and the list goes on....DR Mattar said if I want to live I need to loose the weight yet he is not sure if I can withstand the surgery, and whether not the outcome is going to be good or not as far as healing and infection/complications. I have been on steroids for a lot of years and basically they are killing me.
If I can get the surgery and loose the weight so many things would (might) improve and I could live a better quality of life without pain. So all of that is good is should be no question I have to have surgery. But, can I handle after surgery? Would you mind sharing with me what a day of eating looks like for you? I just really need to work through this stuff.
I agree with you the people at Clarian Bariatrics are beautiful wonderful people. I appreciate your time and look forward to hearing from you. Take care and blessings. Always, Dawn
