      I want to stress this point, I do NOT grab the bag and eat from it, I make sure to measure and eat what I am allotted and to journal. It would be very easy to grab the bag and munch it down.

      If I go to the movies I take a sandwich bag (earlier out it was a clean yogurt cup). And allow myself that much and no more.  I take string cheese or jerky.  A 100 calorie bag of popcorn fills me up.  I usually only eat a half, maybe not even.  I think it's a smell thing; smells good but after a taste I'm good!  And it's not an every week thing either.

      I have a gastric bypass not a sleeve, but I find that popcorn really fills me up - and not in a good way.  So, yes, you can have it, but it is basically empty calories and may not make you feel good.

  4. Ate  a protein wrap from Protein bar didn't go down well... ate less than half Dietician said I'm good to eat most anything had the Quinoa chicken pesto split order in half the other day & it went perfectly w/my sleeve today the barrito Gucamole "Guac & Roll" chicken wrap in wheat  tortilla w/flax seeds did not sit well my tummy screamed out loud for a good 40 mins so embarrassed at work feel  like anyone in the cublicles  near my  vicinity can hear my sleeve growl & complain..

      Was the tortilla the problem? I like the Santa Fe Bowl (small order) from Protein Bar. Wish they served it all day.

  5. had my surgery Weds 23rd I had an awful 1st 3 days nausea so bad I could barely drink anything finally it's gone..... I'm finally getting in some fluids little by little I actually finished a premier protein during day and was able to tolerate tea yesterday & was trying to drink my water every ten minutes a shot can't seem to get the sufficient amount of daily fluids Popsicles I can suck on a whole one & small cup of green tea decaffeinated w/1 splenda I can handle ok This was not easy at all....
