Hey, Karen! Where's the beef? I mean, you should be emphasizing protein at every meal and snack. The protein is what staves off the hunger, and since you haven't been eating enough protein, that's probably why you're feeling hungry..

To get regular and stay that way, add.


To your beverages every day. Take a probiotic such as Align every day, and if you go a day without a BM, take a stool softener the next day and every day until you clear your bowel. It's takes some consistent attention for us GBSers to maintain our systems, and you just have to be daily in it..

You can't go back to old ways of eating (cheese popcorn for lunch?) and expect to not be hungry or to maintain regularity. Come on, girl, get back with the program. You don't want to regain weight, do you? Start taking care of you!..

Hey Karen,.

Why not try protein like chicken or tofu mixed in with some curry sauce or marsala sauce, etc so that you get a different taste with your protein?.

Just thinking it may help... Also, whynot measure a bit. I was worried because I thought I was eating way too much but today when I measured, nothing was more than a half a cup....

Also, drinking helps a ton as well..

I don't know, I read your list of everything you ate and it doesn't seem like a lot to me. At 7 months out I was eating more on a daily basis than that and went to see the nutritionist who advised me to get in 1300 calories a day making sure that I was getting in 64g of protein, 64 ounces of liquid and 120g of carbs. That meant I had to add a snack somewhere in the middle of the day. I also.


(almost) every morning burning somewhere between 100 and 200 calories at least, some days more..

And - I found that getting enough hydration and fiber is key to regulating my bowels. But definitely talk to your doc if you need more help with it...

Have to agree that you need to get in more protein, less carbs! Amazing how different programs are though, Kitty you can have 120 Grams of carbs? At 6 months out I am just now able to add carbs at all, and they told me not more than 10 grams per meal! On the other hand, since carbs were always my downfall, I know that limiting them is best for me. Now I just have to stick to that!!..

I add protein powder to sugar free pudding mixed with non-fat milk. Gives me a sweet hit with protein. In that I use vanilla protein powder from Trader Joe's. It works well...

I am 8mo out and my nut. doesn't worry about calories but I was concerned so she said around 1000-1200 I really have to push for that I still don't think I do it. I eat well balanced meals and with my protein. My office doesn't feel you need to drink the protein shakes for life if you eat the right amount of protein, which is great for me since I dump from them. I maybe get about 800-900 calories on a good day. I really try for more but never do it.


The pouch. I have my 9mo on the 14th but will official be nine months on the 24th. I am down 134.lbs since.



I keep it off. My nut. didnt limit my carbs. but did say they bother some people more than others.I eat whole grain never white but it does bother me sometimes and other times not. I never know when the dumping will occurr. I still have no sense of fullness so I still have to measure.

Take care..
