it will work, it is a retraining of a lifestyle. Most people say in the losing stages stick to 600-800 calories, and limit carbs to 40gms. Keep protien to a minium of 60 gms and at least 64 ounces of h20. My hunger has rescently returned, and it is a struggle, Stay with protiens, I was told to stay away from the "whites" pasta, rice, potatoes, and breads of any kind. Retrain your self, it is hard as old habits die hard, I know. I am 48 years old and food never went to waste growing up. So now it is in my mind to deal with these things.
I was discouraged, had regrets early on, but now I am lovin it, getting good comments from friends and family, smaller cloths, more active, great energy. You can do it. Friend me if you want , contact me anytime. If you want a cell number we can talk. I will help as much as I can. We can help each other. It is worth every struggle.
Remember it's bariactric surgery, not brain surgery! You need to get your head in the game!!!!
