In my pre-op phase (for 1 year) I followed a keto diet of low carb, high fat, moderate protein and lost about 80 lbs. I really enjoyed it as it really helped with my type II diabetes and I was able to lower my insulin intake. I am 6 weeks post op and

I am 5 weeks post op and I am concerned I am hungry more than I should be. I have been measuring my food and a typical meal/snack is about 3-4 ounces (1/3 cup to 1/2 cup). I confirmed with the Bariatric surgeons nurse that this is the right amount of f

Did you find it easier to drink the clear protein drinks over the protein shakes (premier)? Was pudding or yogurt to thick to handle or were you able to? I have been told to stick to clear liquids and stay away from pudding and yogurt... just want to

When I was scheduling my Psych appointment I was told I would be with the Psychiatrist for 45 minutes and then take a test for another 45 min.  A "TEST", what is that all about?  Is it a pass/fail type of test?  Has anyone not passed it and had it keep

My first blog post was about being at crossroads and not knowing which direction to go... one road is in Missouri where I now live and the other road leads to Arkansas where my son lives.  Why am I at the crossroads now you might ask...  My current bar

I am wanting to start working on new habits prior to WLS... example: not drinking 30 min before/after eating, chewing well, portion control, etc.  What I would like is your input as to what you would suggest for daily nutritional values for total calor

I'm going to attend the Bariatric seminar for a Bariatric surgery group in Little Rock, AR at Baptist Hospital on Friday, Dec 2nd.  I am concerned that I will not think of something that is important to ask.  If you could go back to that seminar what w
