I was wondering if I should still stay away from carbs? Today is my official 12 week mark. I wanted to eat a small, hard pretzel, but I don't know if I will keep it or not. In general are we still supposed to stay away from stuff like carbs? I know rice is a definate no-no, but what about pasta? :rolleyes:

It is best to stay away from carbs. I'm one year out and have lost my weight, but eating carbs, translates to gaining weight. For my 1 year check up Dr. callerie said the way gastric by pass patients gain weight is by eating carbs. You basically have to follow the rule of protein first, fruits veg, then carbs. For a snack i have a nutritious snack or fruit or nuts or whatever. Carbs are the last thing i have. I'll gain weight. They also make you hungrier. I find if i have a salad for lunch with protein it holds me. If i have a half a sandwich or a rice bowl with chicken i'm hungry and hour later. Stay away from carbs.
