I'm Still Hungry

Yup, still hungry.

I cheated and had some refried beans yesterday. Guess what? It was delicious!

Guess something else?

That was a horrible, horrible thing for me to do. If there is something anyone should know about the post-op diet, it's that you need to follow it to the end. The post-op diet is specifically designed to help your stomach heal in order to prevent band complications in the future. When you eat solid, your stomach moves around while it digests. When you eat liquids, that moving around is severely reduced. So while you're waiting for your stomach to heal from the stitches and the band placement, you want as little movement as possible to make sure the band heals correctly in place. If not, band slippage/erosion could happen in the future.

Yeah, I feel like a total douchebag now for eating those beans. Now I'm back to sad, depressed Ashlee eating her tomato soup. *sigh*

Well, I start work on Wednesday, so at least I'll be distracted.


  1. Hopefully work distracts you I know at my job I hardly get a chance to grab a bite some days so I know that will be easy for me... but once I'm home, all bets are off!

  2. My first two days of work didn't really help with the hunger, since I was still on liquids. I think that now that I'll be able to eat solids, things will go much more smoothly.

  3. No menus, no diet restrictions

    Unlike weight loss pills or diet programs, Roca Labs Natural Gastric Bypass no surgery does not require a strict menu or calorie count. It FORCES you to eat HALF food, so you will automatically lose weight without having to keep track of every calorie you consume.

    Avoiding the diet trap

    Diets often fail for a simple reason: people can't stick to them! They force us to refrain from foods that we can't help wanting, and sooner or later, many people give in to temptation. And once you give in a little, it's easy to feel defeated and rationalize that since you already broke the rules, you might as well eat whatever you want now.

    One reason Roca Labs gastric bypass no surgery is so successful is that you can continue to eat what you like, and don't have to keep track of everything you put in your mouth. You can still have a slice of chocolate cake or a bowl of ice cream, but with the gastric bypass effect, you'll feel satisfied before you even finish it. You'll eat the foods you want, but in smaller portions.
