      Sorry to hear of your struggle. Do you have a nutritionist with your bariatric practice? I would say start with them, going over what you typically eat (when not on the 5DPT). Also have you been to a therapist? They can help you work on things like emotional eating and that sort of thing. My surgeon's office is always saying to call or email if i'm having any problems at all. I hope your surgeon's office has a good aftercare program, it can make all the difference!

      it's not my first time, maybe my third? maybe my second, i can't remember.  the 5DPT doesn't always result in weight loss, i've even seen some report weight gain. for me it's just as much about the mental part of it as the possible side effect of losing some weight.
