Exceptional Answer. We got busy again with LIFE AND ITS AWESOME. Im back and have tons to share. Its a good forum people really care. When i had my surgery done i was completely alone at the hospital. I only had those from the forum to talk to before and after no matter how brief. People take time out and answer and listen and i appreciate.

IM IN THE PROCESS OF UPDATING AND ATTACHING MY LIFE THUS FAR AFTER GASTRIC BYPASS. Keep watch. Im just hoping to return the favor a few million times:)

I'm a saltaholic...so pretzels popcorn etc. Those are the hardest for me. Though I'm ok with a little popcorn, I'm more worried about the bite and sliver of this and that while pepping. Meals and school lunches etc. I think I'll. Have to talk to hubby about taking this on.

Hi leverett1945,

I have been around for years and this is the first I heard of this connection. May I ask who was the speaker so I can do some additional research? Also, you may want to post this on the main forum to get more replies on this.

Topic: memory loss

Recently went to program about dementia. Speaker said people who have weight loss surgery are more likely to have dementia because we do not absorb enough from our food. Never heard this before. Anybody know anything about this?

Topic: RE: avoiding temptation

While I don't have a kid, I do live with two people who don't eat the way I do.

Things that work for me, sometimes, to control my home environment:

There is a snack cabinet in the house where snacks live. I'm pretty good about not going in there. Perhaps you could keep kid snacks in a cabinet or opaque container of some sort so that you don't see them?

I keep things in the freezer and, for some reason, they don't call to me from there. Maybe you could keep kiddo's snacks in the freezer? Since they'd thaw in time for their lunch.

My people are also good about having non-Gwen food that doesn't really appeal to me. Art likes Clif bars, for example, and I'm pretty good at ignoring them - I think they have something I'm allergic to in them so that's a big motivator to ignore them! Lance LOVES rice and I'm pretty meh about it. So it's easy for me to always keep rice in the fridge for the guys to supplement the proteins I cook, because I don't really care about it. Does your kiddo like things that you don't care about eating? You could try to prioritize those things maybe? Do you have any food allergies/intolerances you can make work in your favor? :)

Do you use artificial sweeteners? For me, when I reduce my use of them, my cravings go away. I know this is not the case for all of us, but it does help me.
