Doctor + fill= ?

Yesterday I saw my surgeon again. He wanted to do a fluroscopy and check out the band. Again, he said everything looks perfect. However... things are not perfect. I have gained about 10 lbs. Not good.... I have been feeling angry towards my band and I have been busy self sabotaging. He gave me a 1.5 cc fill and I can tell a huge difference. He actually started out with 5 cc (I was totally empty) and the barium came flying out like a bullet out of high powered riffle.

This is all so strange because I had 7.5 at one point and was at my sweet spot. The doctor claims this is not unusual and that peoples fill tolerance can change over time. I am feeling better about things and am ready to get on the losing end of things again. I have only been able to eat small amounts, about a cup at a time, and I am staying fuller longer. The best part about the band is that is always offers you an opportunity to start over. So here it is... my do over.

In diet foods which replace the sugar with lower food energy substitutes, there is some controversy based around the possibility that the sugar substitutes used to replace sugar are themselves harmful. Thanks.

There's no doubt that a diet consisting solely of protein shakes will enable you to lose weight quickly. But like most diets, it has a few drawbacks. For one, you can't survive on a diet of only protein shakes for very long. Thanks.
