I have avoided pasta (and bread, potatoes, and rice) like the plague this past year. I made spaghetti squash or zucchini noodles with my spiralizer a few times, but it wasn’t much worth it due to needing to eat the protein first. I’d like opinions

I am 9 months post-op today and am down 110 pounds. I have been eating dairy, poultry and fish for protein until today when I had my first hamburger without the bun. I cooked it myself, so it’s not fast food. I feel absolutely horrible! Is this norma

I was sent to secondary screening on both ends of my trip. Two airports detected something around my waist. I had nothing metal in my pockets or on clothes. Is it possible that 6 months after surgery the staple line can be detected deep inside my body

I am 5 1/2 weeks out from surgery, on purée food for another 4 days, and meeting my water and protein goals. The past few days I have felt weak and dizzy when standing after lying down or sitting. I have a call out to my surgeon's office to see what s

I am following my post-surgery protocols to the letter (80+ gr protein, 64+ oz. water, carbs lower than 30-40 gr, diet progression stages, bariatric vitamins, walking, sleep), but I have only lost 12 pounds since surgery a month ago (stopped losing inc

 I had surgery the 27th, was released the 28th, and now I'm struggling to get my water in. After 2 or 3 sips, I'm super full. How close to the protocol of 64 oz. fluids can I reasonably attain two ...
