Maybe to "fluffy")My biggest mistake was not doing due diligence and enough research prior to having the sleeve. "I don't care, just do it!". Had I researched a bit more, I would have better understood why some of the restrictions were required and how not following them religiously can negatively impact your long term success. I was told "no fluids 30 minutes prior to or after a meal. I had been told that this was because I'd get full too fast and not have room for my protein and I'd feel uncomfortable.
