Topic: RE: 12 weeks post op and appetite is back?

You will naturally be able to eat more food as time goes on; the swelling in your digestive system goes down and your pouch "matures." Totally normal.

Are you on a PPI/acid reducer? Acid can mimic hunger, as can dehydration.

I am the master of my own regain.

i am 12 weeks post op and I have noticed that I'm getting hungrier and am able to eat more food. Is this normal? When did your appetite come back?

I started Keto on December 11th and lost 18 lbs in 5 weeks. I eat more protein than is really recommended on Keto but we have to! I try to keep my total carbs under 13g and eat between 950-1000 calories a day. I hope that helps!

I've found tha****ching out how late in the "day" I take Caffeine helps with sleep. I have to be caffeine free for at least 4 hours before sleep will happen. Managing light helps too. I try to keep screen time when I get home to a minimum. Our bedroom has the windows covered with thick black plastic under heavy dark curtains. When the lights are off it's dark.

I'm pre-WLS with uncontrolled weight so I don't have anything useful to offer on food.
