That's a good question. I'm not sure what is the right answer. I'll do some poking around and get back to you if I find an anything. You should email the people at Medifast as they probably could assist you..

Haha my aunt always says that...there is no greater taste than thin lol it's how she keeps herself motivated.......

I had my.

Surgery.

11/15/210 so allmost 3 weeks not yet though....I got a huge packet from my Nut/Doc's office and it has sample menu's with what you can eat and all that 411. I am allowed cottage cheese, tuna, chicken salad (must be the consistance of tuna/pureed consistancy...i but it in the can...its good)....um basically anything that can mush up in my mouth I can have....mashed potatoes etc......... but protein first always.....

The crackers I have my mom got the pep farm ones they are wheat and they break down easy so I still get a crunch and I only eat 2 which is like no calories or carbs bc I dont have the "serving of 10"...get what I mean.... but it's such a good alternative!! and yummy!.

I also do not push things...i eat my 2 ounces first then wait a while and if I want something else ill get another ounce but I start off small becuse although I can have 3 ounces I am not looking to get sick or throw up because I over ate....and I make sure to eat over the 30 min like the docs say.....and you know what...it makes you seem like you are eating "more" although youre not ...youre just eating for a longer period of time........

Keep up the good work but DEF NO ALCOHOL!..

You definitely need to talk to your surgeon, nutritionist or counselor. I am unabashedly biased, as a recovering alcoholic (I know, the WORST kind)..

The thing is, apart from the no alcohol for six month thing, are you really considering having a drink before you can even eat? I wonder if that is not a big craving for sugar. Are you diabetic?..

I definitely would ask your doctor. I didn't have an alcohol for a year after my.

Surgery.

And let me tell you, it affects you a lot quicker. Plus it has a lot of calories..I really would not recommend it until at least 6 months out. You gotta work the pouch while you can because trust me after about a year and a half out, it becomes really really hard to keep losing weight like you did in the beginning...

You guys make a good point ...work the pouch hard for six months..plus everyone eats more when they drink...

I know I will miss my glass of wine but it makes sense for at least during the time that the pouch can do the most work..

I imagine I will be sneaking in little drinks here and there afterward (after I have lost a lot).

But not too much because I heard Carny Wilson gaind all , yes all her weight back that way!.

I am going to be two year out in February.. and I can honesty tell you.. drinking is not a good idea.. lol. Alcohol affescts us much quicker after.

Surgery.

And as you know liquids go right through the pouch so yeah we can drink quite a few cocktails. One of the htings they don't tell you before.

Surgery.

Is the statistics of GBS patients that have become alcoholics.. it's quite high. Replacing one addiction for another. I don't drink.. because I know my body can't handle it.. and I dont like feeling sick for two days after having one glass of wine.. it sucks!..

I am going on my own here to say I love a drink every now and then I will be 6 months on the 11th this month and have had sugar free pins coladas and sugar free margaritas. Now keeping that in mind I have never dumped or had the frothies. I do not do this often but I have to cut loose every once in awhile. You have to make this work for you so sometimes you have to go out on a limb and find your happy medium...

I did start having drinks about 4 months after my.

Surgery.

I was going on.

Vacation.

In Hawaii and wanted to be able to have a fruity drink. I did Ok. One thing I did find out is that I get a buzz very easily. So it doesn't take much...

I'm 4 months out and yes I've had alcohol. At 3 weeks I wouldnt risk it, it can affect the healing process... and your stomach is still healing..

Fruity drinks may cause you to dump because of the sugar content. I am not a wine drinker and have found that many kinds of beer have too much carbonation to tolerate more than a sip or two. Guiness is the exception, you would think it has a lot of carbonation because of the foam on top but thats pretty much where the bubbles stop... it's only 125 cal/glass and has protein in it. :o)..

I have had a glass of wine here and there since about 10 weeks, with my nutritionists blessing..

I didn't get hammered after one drink either, but I was/am careful and usually will have like a white wine spritzer (half wine/half club soda)..

Alcohol converts to sugar so if you dump be very careful, and it's empty calories but I agree with Lauri, you have to find what works for you and what you can live with...

I was told that peole like me with unhealthy sugar issues are prime candidates for alcoholism..

Alcohol=sugar..

Plus I am 100 percent Irish (all 4 grandparents from Ireland)...and some of my relatives have had issues. (Drunk Irishmen? Shocking!!)..

Well as most can guess, I drink LOTS! And love it! I am highly monitored and am fully aware what ANY negative behavior will cost me. While my family love me they'll bounce on me in a nanosecound if I fuck up! They're just all so fed up with me looking and loving me..

But so I'm clear to all, I'd watch anything with worthless Medifast food value until you kids get skinny first..

Jus sayin Lu..

Everyone who drinks faces possible conversion to alcoholism. That is not to say that everyone who drinks WILL become an alcoholic..

Genetics ae a strong indicator, but so are your friends and activities, and the personal relationship you develop with the particular drink..

I could have drunk liquor all my life with no alcoholism, because it just wasn't for me. To feel it was to puke and be miserable for 48 hrs, very possibly due to sugar issues..

But set me in England with a great beer or ale and I will numb myself to extinction. Miller Lite and COuntry.

Dancing.

, perfet example of activity de termining the development of heavier drinking....

15 years sober, for today, but it is still every day that I think about a drink.....
