I am new to this team. I am trying to support people with this problem. It sounds very difficult to deal with. Chris emoticon

I have to be diligent about caring for myself. 100 DAYS OF WEIGHT LOSS is a great way for me to keep focused. Day 1 is July 1, 2017. Build habits to produce success. Most of these habits I have at least tried before but did not sustain. First habit: delay eating by using a timer.

Being healthy with gastroparesis is challenging but far from impossible. It takes a little more work because you can't depend on fiber to keep you full and if you eat something you shouldn't it can be more troublesome than for most.

Protein shakes and soup are good when you can't eat solid food, but there are many foods out there you can try. There are several threads in our team talking about the GP diet and how to figure out what foods will work for you.

I'm glad you found our team and I hope you find the support you need here. If you have questions, feel free to ask - there are several of us who can help you try to find answers.

Hello,

I'm so glad I found this time. I joined Sparkpeople about 2 weeks ago. I find it very hard to loose weight when u can't eat alot of vegetables because they don't digest well or cause u to be very constipated. I was told to get use to protein shakes and lot of soup, which gets very boring to me after about a week or two. Someone please help me....

Thanks in advance,
Tonya

Am trying to eat small meals and more liquid when it starts to hurt, if not than just very small portions of regular food. I am also weeding out what foods are harder to digest for me,

Welcome to the team. This condition is unknown by many people, including plenty of doctors, but it is not rare. It's difficult to deal with, but we do what we can. Feel free to look around the team and read the information we have, then share what you've found works for you. Feel free to ask any questions you have and people who have been living with the condition for awhile can help answer them or point you in a direction.

I got diagnosed a few months ago and I felt the same way when they finally put it all together. It was so frustrating before that when they kept trying these tests that showed nothing.

How's coping with it going for you?

I was diagnosed with GP a few weeks ago even thought I had it for about three months till the second GI had me tested. I never heard of such a thing but feel much better now I know it has a name!
