An ounce is 28 grams. So 100 grams of protein is about 4 ounces! Easy - WRONG.

There is more to it. Not everything in even a dense prot is protein. A 3 ounce (total weight of 84 grams) serving of canned tuna (no mayo, celery, etc) has only

On average, WLS patients have 12-17% lower BMIs 5 years after surgery. For non-surgical interventions - no change in BMI.

One week post-op PS phase 2, drains still in. Taking it easy.

I loved The Good Wife TV series that ended awhile ago. It continues online as The Good Fight - I am enjoying it. Many of the characters have at least cameo roles. Diane, Luka, th

I'm sure everyone's Pl Surg has said to use sunscreen to prevent discoloration (darkening) of your scars.

What is your favorite? My PS recommended to use 100SPF, but said there was virtually no difference between 70 SPF and 100SPF. That leav

I had to drive 1500 miles this week. I 'discovered' sliders at Arby's. (In truth I really had to use the bathroom and Arby's was the first place that found).

I loved the Turkey Slider. $1.29 ($1.41 after tax). A few ounces of turkey and a

I've had a new body for 18 months now - but it still was wonderful to take a bus into NYC and to NOT TOUCH the person in the next seat.  In fact, there were several inches between us.  It was too cool to look down and see all that empty seat between me

I bought this bra on-line a few weeks ago - it has a wider side to prevent "underarm bulge."  It has extra coverage.  It is wire-free (good for post-breast lift) but there is a similar one with a wire also.

I know that everyone will gravitate to the fitness tacker that matches with their goals - mine is the Samsung Gear FIt 2.

I indulged in half a bag of small kitkats over the past two weeks.  Like, WTF - since when did Halloween do on for two weeks - no damage but I am back on the wagon.

I was clearing out old email and found this clip of Al Roker - a WLS hero of mi

Hi to all,

I'm seeing many people posting that they just had surgery, so here is a little slogan I made up to help me juggle all the new ways I had to learn to eat after WLS.  No filling up on lower calorie foods to feel full, no having soup be

I don't post on this board often, but I came across a long-term WLS doctor's website that talks about the outcomes of WLS and the possibilities for revisions. I don't know this doctor, so I'm not endorsing him as a surgeon, but his strategy is consiste

Fat Doctor is a youtube British TV series.  I just came across it.

I'm now at a month in compression garments and may have awhile yet, so I have altered my vest with sleeves and sleeves to fit better.  I found hook and eye tape - 8.00 per yard, in white or black. I need small arms (for arm lift) but a medium chest (I

I had my WLS in December and wore several layers of clothing, including a parka home.  I did not understand why people recommended taking a pillow for the ride home, i didn't say anything because I figured it helped some people.
