So for those of you who are further out, do you have a carb threshold you try to stay under? As much as I would love to eat nothing but eggs and bacon for the next forty or fifty years of my life (slight sarcasm), I would really like to be able to have
So if bacon is good for us, what about eggs? All the info I'm reading online seems to contradict itself (one says it's bad to eat more than one egg a day while another says eggs are fine, eat as many as you want). Eggs are something I love and I've bee
I'm 4.5 months post-op and I feel like I'm still struggling with eating normal meats and vegetables. While throwing up in the beginning was normal for me (either I ate too fast or didn't properly sense when I was full), it is very rare for it to happen
So, obviously, I knew that hair loss was a possibility. I'm just past three months and I'm losing a scary amount of hair. I don't have any bare patches on my scalp, but I'm worried that I'm headed that direction. My hair is unusually dry, and yesterday

I fast for religious reasons (both food and water), and while I'll ask my doctor about it next time I see him, I'm wondering whether anyone here ever does so. Was there a specific amount of time you waited until you resumed fasting? (I'm almost six wee
I'm exactly five weeks post op, so just past the soft meats stage.
When I'm home, I have no problems measuring out my food. But I had Thanksgiving at the in-laws and had to guess at the right measurement for turkey. Or today I was out shopping
Sorry to get so personal, but I need help. I'm about a month post surgery. I saw my doctor last week. I'm someone who was a two to three bowel movements a day pre-surgery. I didn't even really pay attention in classes to the constipation parts because
I'm only two days out from my DS surgery, and despite the fact that I feel terrible and don't really want to eat, I've found myself obsessively thinking about eating donuts or chocolate cake. My guess is that I've always used food to soothe/comfort, an
