That is outstanding Beth.

I wish that all Bariatric units had such a comprehensive menu plan. And it's full of other useful information too.

Deb, my nutritionist isn't against healthy carbs but suggests that after a year out you limit them to about 1/4th of your meal. I do eat complex carbs but I try to be careful with them. If I start seeing a weight gain the carbs are the first thing to go. Also, I know my nutritionist emphasizes that you don't eat carbs unless you are getting in ALL your protein.

I do appreciate the work the nutritionist put into these plans though. They are very realistic and something I know I can live with for the rest of my life. Even though this nutritionist isn't a wls patient she is someone who struggled with MO in the past and it shows in the way she deals with the patients. She's awesome!

Glad you all found these helpful. :D

Thanks for providing the menu suggestions Beth. Nice to have something to "refer" to for checking what I am eating in comparison to the suggested amounts.

Hope you got my messages about yesterday..:)

You're welcome, Heather. Actually my surgeon's entire practice is awesome! All of them have been so patient with my many questions. They never make me feel like I'm a bother even when I have general questions. They are always willing to explain or find the answers.

If you all wonder how I know so much? Well its because of his practice. The people there are the ones that have taught be most of what I know. :)

you are so lucky to have such a wonderful practice to work with. Mine isnt as appealing at all. Its rather annoying matter of fact. I get more answers and honest answers through TT than I could ever get from my practice. I called today about a billing concern and never got ahold of anyone nor got an answer to my question. So you are very fortunate!!

I know I am. If I ever have any concerns all I have to do is send an email off to my surgeon's nurse. She is back to me within a couple of hours or at least lets me know that she will be talking to the PA or surgeon. She even had a couple of the PAs call me just to answer my questions. She has no problem sticking my emails in front of their noses and telling them to get on the phone with me. *L*
