The diet I was put on prior to surgery only lasted 2 days. It was used to "clean out" my system. I had gastric bypass, where they re-route your small intestines and staple the bottom 3/4 of your stomach off. Some other diets are used for longer periods of time to help shrink down your stomach, and/or get you acclimated to eating smaller portions and into a routine of eating healthier. This puts you ahead of the game so it's not so hard to adjust post op. Hope that helps.
Welcome to Gastric Bypass Sparklers! You’ll find plenty of support and encouragement here. No question is too stupid to ask, so post away and we’ll all put in our two cents worth. Utilize all the tools SP has to offer. I find tracking my food and exercise most helpful. Good luck on your weight loss journey!
Hi Amber, Just thought I would stop by. I'm starting to get active again. Hubby and I are on a competition although I have to admit that I haven't jumped in with two feet yet. 2189 days ago
Hey! Thank you for your comment on my page! Even after 2 years of trying, I'm not giving up yet on getting pregnant someday, but it's really frustrating and kind of depressing when people (like my Mom and my sister) kind of give up on it, and say "hey, you can adopt/foster care/wait". I'm not ready to give up, and I wish they wouldn't act like it was a hopeless cause.
Thank you again! It means alot to me when a person still offers their support and friendship when I need it. :) 2224 days ago
