Lack of protein causes overeating

An interesting article from the University of Sydney about our need for protein.  If a person is not getting protein in, they will eat more.  Fortunately, most weight loss surgery patients focus on protein first.

 I had a Roux-en-Y Gastric Bypass Procedure in the Raleigh area on June 9th, 2011 by Dr. Moran.

I know that when I do not get enough protein in my diet I feel like I can't stop eating it is like my body is craving something it just can't find.  Also, I  have learned the hard way that if you do not get enough protein in your diet you can retain water and end up with edema in your lower extremeties...I had to go on a prescription water pill and lost 6 pounds of water weight.

Highest weight: 289

Lowest weight: 131

Current weight: 131!!!!!!!

Just looking for a way to have plastic surgery now.

When the world says, "Give up,"Hope whispers, "Try it one more time."
