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

Regardless if you have the.

Surgery.

Doesn't mean you can't start taking care of you. If you can, make an appointment with a nutritionist and have them put something together for you to aid you to.

If that is what you desire..

Remember the.

Is simply a tool. We are still accountable for our actions. It is up to us to.

And eat to nourish our bodies. I know this is easier said than done and I wouldn't have had the.

Well that sucks but... the.

Surgery.

Is just a tool (like a head start to get the weight off, making.

Exercise.

Easier and the smaller capacity makes.

Portion control.

Easier) but bottom-line it's about making daily healthy choices and life changes (food,.

Exercise.

, vitamins, water, working on the head stuff) plenty of people rely on the tool and sadly never make those changes and then find the scale does still head in the other direction..

I'd get in to see your PCP, get a referral to a nutritionist & set up a plan, get cleared by your cardiologist for some sort of movement (I'm assuming low impact so maybe water.

Aerobics.

), track your food/drink &.

Fitday.com.

Or nutritiondata or some site like that..

Best wishes in your weight loss efforts. We're hear for support..

I think a nutritionist is a great idea. I'm pre-op and hoping to have my.

Surgery.

In April. I've been meeting with a nutrtionist monthly and have lost 20 lbs. in the last 2 months just from taking baby steps I'm now wearing a pedometer to track number of steps. My plan is to increase 10% or more each week. If you haven't done so already, try Eggface's recipes. I drink a proten shake every morning now.

In fact, my kids often have me make them shakes. Don't give up or you'll be in real trouble. Stay with us. Take care...

I don't think you have to do anything on your own just use another tool. I think everyone who said go to a nutritionist were right on. Talk to your general doctor, that's how I started my journey. I scheduled a physical and talked to him, broke down and cried in my frustration with losing weight, gaining, losing , gaining you know the cycle..

He was very kind to me, and suggested the.

Which is something he doesn't suggest very often. I am sure your doctor will help you with some plan to get you started..

I know that.

You should try doing the weight loss Medifast diet that post-op people have to do, it will be much harder then it is for people that ate post-op because we have the advantage of a tiny stomach but I think it will really benefit you..

Try replacing meals with low fat/sugar high protein shakes (about 60-80 grams a day of protein), then you can have sugar free jello, broth, sugar free popsicles as much as you want. most people lose a lot of their weight during this phase. but remember,.

Portion control.
