Fit and fantastic!
Beep - at this stage (2.5years) after my bypass I am being normal and eating from a wide selection of foods just not much of them. I think this is probably what the majority of bypassers do too. In the early days (say first year) while we are learning, I think we do tend to get into rituals about proteins and calories. But in time we come to learn just how very little we need to consume and still lead a full and healthy life. An example of a pretty normal day for me will be breakfast - low sugar granola (4%) with semi, lunch - homemade egg sandwich on granary (can't cope with crusts therefore removed), supper - pan-fried salmon fillet with broccoli (plate not cleared). I'll probably consume about a litre of semi skimmed through the day. Omlettes and scramble feature, as do Quorn stuffed peppers, jackets with tuna and sweetcorn, bananas, yes the odd biscuit or packet of crisps, yoghurts, to name just a few things. As I say pretty much everything - the weight lose is the consequence of the small amount we can eat, rather than what ... But obvs we need to aim for as much protein as poss, and keep carbs low. Due to my intense fitness routine I am eating more simple carbs than the average bypasser, at the instruction of my consultant in order to maintain. I weighed myself this morning for the first time in a couple of weeks and I am maintaining
