# try this:
breakfast:
1 slice of toast, thinly buttered
cup of tea/coffe, substitute sweeteners for sugar
apple or orange

lunch:
1 egg, scrambled on 1 slice of thinly buttered toast

dinner:
1 medium bowl of soup*
1 slice of medium white bread.

this should help you drop a bit of weight if you really want to!

*soup is made by putting 1 ham hock, 3 tins of carrots and 1 bag of red lentils in a large pan of water, bringing to the boil, then simmering for 1 hour. take the hock ot, remove all fat, shred meat, put meat back into the soup and blend.
delicious!

# When you've lost all the weight
do you have to get the operation reversed?
And does having a gastric bypass mean you can eat loads but nothing goes into your stomach? If so, erm, how does the food get out?

# It comes out of your ears

# the bypass is non-reversible
they remove 3/4 of your stomach and about 6 feet of intestines. you can only eat very small amounts, but you don't get hungry. for the first 3 months, i was on jars of baby food.
small jars.

# Ohhhh I see
But shirley once you've reached your goal weight you will still keep losing weight if you can only eat tiny amounts?
But most importantly, the 6 feet of intestines, did they give it back to you in a jar?

# no
and i asked, too.
my weight will eventually level out as my stomach will stretch a bit to fit more in. my mate's mum had it done, she's put a stone back on from drinking and eating junk.

had the gastric band op.
lost 2 stone on my own while i was waiting; then thanks to the pre-op diet i've lost another 1 and a half stone in just under 3 weeks.

# you're doing the liver reduction diet?

# i did it for 10 days and lost 8 kilos!
had my op on the weds before last and have lost another 6 kilos since.
the rules have changed slightly on the liver-reduction diet - now they stress fat-free over liquid-only - so you're still 'allowed' solid foods as long as they're hyper-lowfat.
I still did a whole 3 days of liquid-only just to be sure - and yes - i'm fucking SICK of jelly and yoghurt!

lived off Knorr Chicken Noodle packet soups [only 0.6% fat!] and Muller Light fat-free yoghurts for the liquid-only days. and white fish baked in rye breadcrumbs for the solidfood days.
you've done fantastically well - i bet you feels tonnes better than before you had it done!

where you take in clothes you've slimmed out of, and you can pick up clothes in your size for free. they have tones of awesome stuff, most of it barely-worn because people are losing weight so fast.

go to a male doctor, crying always makes them feel uncomfortable. say your weight makes you feel hideous, you've stopped going out because you think people are staring at you and, on bad days, you feel suicidal. this will often do the trick.
