Temptation

Temptation

I am addicted to food and there are times at work when its hard to get away from junk food. Whenever they have a potluck all the goodies that are leftover are left in the lunch room for all to see. So im eating healthy but im super tempted by the cake sitting right in front of me. Any suggestions as to what i can do so i dont eat the bad stuff? Also note there really isnt anywhere else i can go to have my meals

If junk food is what you crave, keep healthy alternatives in office draw. Rice chips or vegetable chips, dry fruits

How many more visits with a surgeon after the first one?

How many more visits with a surgeon after the first one?

I’m having bypass surgery soon (in Toronto) and have completed all of the appointments. I have my appointment with the surgeon soon and was wondering if anyone knows if I will get my surgery date at that appointment? I was told to bring a credit card to buy the shakes I need to drink prior to surgery. Also are there more surgeon appointments before surgery or just the one? I can’t find anything clear online. Thanks!

Does anyone else ever just not want to eat?

Does anyone else ever just not want to eat?

There are days sometimes multiple days in a row where nothing sound goods, I'm not hungry, and I could just care less about eating and have to almost force myself to eat. I hate feeling like this and dont know what to do and then usually eating a ton of junk cause it's easy to eat.

Laparoscopic adjustable gastric band

Laparoscopic adjustable gastric band

Mine really isnt a question as much qs a statement. The Band does NOT reduce the size of your stomach!! It reduces the size of the opening to your stomach. Making smaller bites feel like much larger bites... your 'pouch' abive the band is not to be 'filled' as a stomach would; it is to slow your eating down.... banded since 2013.

I need help making a meal plan to lose 30-40 pounds.

Hi, I'm 39 years old and am having a lot of trouble losing weight. I need help making a meal plan that will help me lose 30-40 pounds, and I don't really care how boring it is, and the more specific it is the better (time to eat, exact quantities etc). I don't know if I should go to a dietician or if someone here can help me with a plan or point me in the right direction.

Also, I can prepare food while I am at home, but when I am at work I can not prepare food… read more
