HELP! IM HUNGARY


Recommended Posts

Ok so I need help, I was banded on the 7th and I have lost 25 pounds since surgery which is really good but I am starting to eat solids again and I am not feeling full or anything. I eat uncontrollably! I don’t eat nearly as much as I did before but I feel like I need to get this under control before I start gaining weight again. I haven’t been loosing any weight and I haven’t gained either since i started eating meals... I am just super stressed and I need advice from people who have been through this and maybe can relate. I am scheduled for November 1st for my first fill. Do you think I should continue on liquids? HELP PLEASE!!!

Everyone is different, but, as I was informed when I had this issue, You don't start feeling restriction until the second (or third) fill. Lean protein will help you feel full longer than carbs. I gained about 20% of what I initially lost until my second fill. After my second fill, I began losing again. I think the liquid diet works at first because you are not as hungry just after getting the band. Now that your hungry, I think just liquids is unrealistic. Keep high protein foods close and hand in there.

Okay, so here are my two cents. I start my morning out with the Breakfast bites from eggface.com. You can make a weeks worth of bits at a time and then just heat them in the micro. At lunch I do my protien and veggies and fruit. Dinner is same as lunch with a little bit of carbs about 2/3 times a week. Other than that, I drink lots of flavored water and take fiber chewables as well as my vitamins.

thank you so much for all your great ideas and inputs everyone. i tried going on the eggface.com website but i didnt see any recipies??? are you sure that is the correct website name? I tend to get more hungary around dinner time. I dont eat throughout the day and then i find myself starving in the evening. i find this getting easier though as each day passes. i may not be losing weight but i am eating way better and that is rewarding just to know that my body is healthier than ever :).
