So as some of y'all may have read I have been having trouble eating. Everything makes me nauseated. So I saw flatouts at the store and wondered about them. Something I haven't had, so thought maybe I'd be OK with the taste. The stats on it for the ligh

OMG, over the past week it takes every ounce of me to get my 60 grams of protein. The thought of food makes me nauseated!! I don't understand where this came from. I was feeling fine and then bam, I was making food and thinking I might throw this up. I

Ok, so I am 8 weeks out from surgery. I get about 10 to a max of 15 carbs a day. Between my chewables and greek yogurt and cottage there is close to 15 carbs. So low carb, but I dont eat the yogurt and cottage everyday or always on the same day. Anyhow

If you use the multivitamin patch can you wear the calcium w/vitamin D patch too?? Does the iron in the one patch effect the calcium absorption?? All I can find on the website was it is fine to wear more than one at a time. But that doesn't tell me abo

Looking into this product, has a couple grams of sugar alcohol. I can't get the horsepills down( broken into 4 pieces per pill), don't like the chewables. So maybe this product will work!?!?!?

I understand everyone has their own journey and their doctor's have their own plan for patients. We give advice to one another based on our experiences and how our doctors are. My question though is why do we tell other people they are wrong based on o

I get that you need a min of 64 ounces, but how many per hour is good. I feel so full all the time!!!! Thanks! I also know nothing during meals and 30 minutes after.

Had surgery yesterday, everything went great. Pain was a big issue until the doctor changed it to taking it every two hours not three. Since then I have been up walking laps around the hospital and getting my one ounce of water each hour. Best decision
