    Keto Diet

    would like to have suggestions on how to do this? the lowest I have been since surgery was around 205 when I quit losing after a year.

    Water????

    Do you drink flavored water or just drink plain water during the day? The packets contain aspartame or another artificial sweetener which probably make you want to eat, if I remember correctly.

    Keto Diet

    Damn, I think you talked me out of it. I think I will try to use the low carb recipes thou. I am almost 3 years out & would like to lose 20 more pounds. losing 20 pounds would put me 5 pounds under 200, wouldn't care if I remained that low or not, just want to get under 200 & stay around 200. Thanks

    Are people nicer to you?

    I have a job in public service & I tend to treat(help) heavier people more & treat them better. it may be that I know what they go thru?

    iron

    does everyone take iron? what amount? I see post telling people to take iron, just like vitamins. I was told by my surgeon that how much, when or if I had to take iron would be determined by blood work. he told me that taking too much iron was as bad as not taking enough. was he wrong?

    20 more pounds

    after you have been out of the honeymoon stage & maintaining a stable weight, has anyone went back & lost more weight? how did you do it? anything drastic? have you been able to keep it off? the reason for asking: I am just over the line to being over weight by the bmi charts, if I lose 10 to 20 pounds more I will hit normal weight by the chart. would like to get there for 1 time in my life. does this make sense? right now I vary between 205 & 212 and need to get under 200 lbs to be in the normal range. before it is said, yes I know what bmi charts mean. have been told that most of my excess weight is excess skin. my pcp told me that if I had it removed I would be under 200(surgery not going to happen).

    Hungry

    I notice a lot of people say they don't get hungry any more & have to remind themselves to eat. how do you get to this point? is there anything I can do to get to this point? I actually have pain in my intestines (to low to be my stomach) if I go to long with out eating.

    Not sure where to put this post.

    I still struggle with #1. I use saucers & smallest plates/bowls I can find to eat off of. at times I still think it not enough still. a lot of it is a head game.

    Tea suggestions

    salt cuts the bitterness in coffee, will it do the same for tea?

    Tea suggestions

    Bigfuzzy will probably stay, had it for years, I am a long way from being small. I am 6'4" & just over 200lbs so I don't see it going away. I have tried a few teas & have found nothing that hits the spot. I drank sweet tea all my life up till 3 or 4 years ago, when I tried unsweetened it wasn't worth the effort. now i don't even like the unsweetened that comes in the bottle.

    Tea suggestions

    the only time my surgeon wanted me totally off coffee was the 2 weeks after surgery, then he told me I could start back. it amazing how the programs & requirements differ with different surgeons. will try the celestial seasonings 1st.

    Tea suggestions

    need suggestions for hot tea. I have not drank very much hot tea & have not found any I like. the only hot drink I have is coffee & would like to replace part of it with tea. I used to drink a lot of iced sweet tea, when I started with the iced unsweetened tea it tasted like muddy water to me(this was years ago). we have a kurig coffee maker & I guess I need a starting point to start. I have tried 3 or 4 different 1s but I haven't found any I like. would like to find 1 so I can drink coffee in the morning & tea in the afternoon & evening to go along with over 100 ounce of water. right now I use coffee in the evening when cold. thanks

    Medications

    How many people have had to go back on diabetes &,or blood pressure meds after getting off them? One of the primary care phy. that I very rarely see told me that people would have to go back on diabetic meds long term. None of the other drs have told me this. if you have had to go back on them, have you had weight regain &,or are you following your program? how long was it before you had to start back? I am talking long term not 6 months or a year. any other medicine you have had to start taking. my surgeon & usual pc told me I should not have to go back on any meds as long as I stayed on the path.
