This site doesn't seem to cost anything-I can't download at work to find out.

Hope this site helps.

I joined this board although it doesn't seem to be very active. I am in my 4'th week out from my sleeve surgery. I am interested in hearing how to get in the nutrients that I need.

I am a little more than two years out. Started at 228 and now am 115. I can't get the protein and eating right so talking to my nutritionist and starting all over again. My stomach feels better. (I also developed IBS-interesting in itself).

Thanks for the link to 5 day pouch. I'll ask if this is ok to start. I would think so.

Still take the supplements, drink lots of water, and am trying the whey protein once a day.

I had my surgery almost 10years ago. You are totally right about not tolerating certain foods. My big problem is chicken. Since my surgery I can`t stand the texture and I can only eat it if it is mixed with other food and then its still iffy.

Thank you for the information on 5 Day Pouch Test. I checked it out on-line, then purchased the e-book. It has me enthused to get back to listening to my body and getting my protein. I am two years out from surgery and suddenly started gaining. (it couldn't be all that snacking, could it?) I feel like I am back in control again.

There is a website that explains the 5 Day Pouch test www.5daypouchtest.com/plan/theplan.h

Although there is a book and other materials that you can purchase, the info in the site is enough to do the "test." I have not done it yet, but I know where I can go if I want to!

I could use that same help. Its been 6 and a half years for me. I lost 110 lbs, felt great. I've gained 15, which doesn't seem like a lot, but I lost lots of muscle and gained lots of fat, and I am miserable and tired. I want to do my protein fast for a few days to get a jump, but am just not motivated.

I am a newbie to this site I am so glad to have found this group I had my surgery over 5 years ago. I had lost 178 pounds in less then nine months following exactly what my surgeon and NT told me to do. I could not find a nutritional plan for post weight loss maintenance which made it really hard for me. When my youngest son joined the Army last year I started picking up my old bad habits. I was 170 I am now 228 and have started to freak out. I am gaining quickly this last 4 months he is going to Afghanistan. I do not want to go back to my old ways. I have talked to my surgeon and NT they say to go back on Unjury and protein @ 800 calories but I feel so hungry. Can you give me any good tips.
Should I do the pouch test to make sure it is still functioning my surgeon has stated he can run test but that he is sure it is still ok. He is proud that I have come to him and other for help. I really really am afraid that I will gain the weight back. Help me.

Just wanted to say that I disappeared for a bit because my cousin died last week and I had to get on the first flight to New Jersey and just got back last night. I'm still not feeling completely alright so I might just sit it out for a while. I'm sorry for my lack of participation I will be back later.

Fitness Tip - If you're working out and are interested in know how many calories you're burning(either for weight loss purpose or maintenance) your best bet would be investing on a good heart rate monitor(like one of those watch thingies, lol). yes, the machines at the gym tell you how long you've been running for and how many calories you have burned but guess what? It's been proven that 90%(or more) of the time those estimates are way off and oh so wrong! :(

Nutritional Tip - Be careful with slider foods. You will be able to eat more, take in more calories which in turn will pack on the pounds. Solid proteins such as chicken and tuna are a lot denser and will stay in your pouch a lot longer, keeping you full and satisfied with less calories therefore aiding your weightloss or helping you with your maintenance.

It's true about drinking alcohol, there is a correlation and it can be problematic for some. If you've been wanting to just say no, now you have a great reason.

Nutritional Tip - After WLS your body will react differently to alcohol. Your tolerance level may/will decrease drastically. Please be careful if you drink, as a matter of fact if you can just don't altogether. (drinking a Passion Fruit Smirnoff at the moment, lmao).

Nutritional Tip - Eating after gastric bypass is like trial and error in math class(Gosh, I hate math!). I've seen lots of people ask questions like: will I be able to eat this? will I be able to eat that? Well, while I'm totally for asking question when you don't know/aren't sure about something the simple answer here is that it is up to you to try it and see if you tolerate it AND something that you tolerate today you might not be able to tolerate tomorrow and completely tolerate the next day. Fun isn't?!?!?!

Fitness Tip - If you have a problem with commitment(to yourself), you're better off joining some sort of class. Try your local gym, join some cardio class, dance class, anything. Being part of a group will help you feel like you're not alone in your efforts and being a part of something will hold you accountable and if you paid it always hurts to lose money. Honestly you don't even have to go that far, talk to someone. Find a fitness budddy. If you make it a fitness date to go walking every morning with your fitness buddy then you're most likely to stick to it. If not you'll be a sell-out...nobody likes sellouts!!!

I will attest to that. It's sometimes like an addiction, so if you view it that way, then sometimes it is easier to turn away. You are saying no to something that is not good for you.

Nutritional Tip - Watch out for the CARB MONSTER! That's not to say that you have to cut them altogether, after all the human body does need carbs to function but there are different types. There's good carbs and bad carbs(will explain that on another post). Bad carbs are sort of like a never ending cycle. Having them will only make you crave more, the more you eat them the more you crave them. Stopping them is not easy and some people even experince withdrawal symptoms...eek!!!

You're welcome. It's no problem. I'm shock full of nutritional/fitness info to the point where I have actual thought about centering my career around it but I'm currently going to school for medical assisting, maybe later.
Yes, water exercise is GREAT! I can not wait for it to get warm enough out here in Miami so that I can go to a pool and exercise. Unfortunately I don't know of any indoor/heated pool. Good luck to with the knee, hope it heals soon.
I too I'm prepping to start the 5 day pouch test. I have just about everything I need to get started so maybe tomorrow. We will see.

Jess, thanks for all the good tips and reminders of how we can be successful in dealing with our fitness and nutrition. I just started water exercise and I feel the benefits greatly. I have a bad knee that I am rehabbing, but the water is great for that. I'm also returning back to the basics of my surgery tools by getting ready to do the 5-day pouch test. A kick-start back into what I know is the right way for me to be eating and not "sliding" into bad foods and habits. I'll keep the board posted. Brenda

Fitness tip - Not exercising because your joints hurt? Well, it was recently stated in an medical article that doing a little bit of exercise can help your joint pain. A little walking goes a long way! You can also do water exercises. If you live somewhere with a warm climate or know of a place with an indoor pool go ahead and jump in(well easily slide yourself in...), the water will feel amazing and keep you cool!

Nutritional Tip - Falling back into old pre-surgery habits? Go back to fresh post surgery habits. The tool is a lifetime gift, you have to learn to use it right.

Well since this thread says "Nutritional and Fitness tips" and I don't see any here are a couple:

Nutritional - Keep a food journal. Write down everything you eat, keeps you accountable for your decision making/actions when it comes to food so later on if you stop losing or start gaining you're not left wondering "why?" or saying "but I don't eat that much!"...depending on what you eat, little things here and there can add up FAST!

Fitness - Move everyday, do something, ANYTHING that will get you revved up and your heart rate going for at least 20-30 minutes. It's not that hard. You don't have to turn into a body builder or a fitness instructor. A thirty minute walk will do.
