  1. Hi, Food wise i eat everything the family eats only small amounts, had the sleeve in July 2018, i was at 168.8kg at my heaviest down to 109kg now. Food wise other that the post surgery phases i have been able to eat all food mostly fresh when at home, have a son who is a chef which helps sometimes (like most 21 year old) but when working away eat a pub bistros, just eat small amount or entrees. I have had no issues, other than self inflicted eating to quickly. Can be pretty painful but subsides after 30 - 40 min. To get the protein scrambled eggs in morning, i don't have toast takes up to much room, tuna and salad for lunch and steak fish or chicken at night. All in all i have found it quiet easy. The mental side i still think about more but the outcome of eating that little more stops me.

    Hi, George here i have i have joined the forum this morning. I am 52 and have had the Gastric Sleeve procedure completed, this happened on the 28/7/2018. this is 5 days after surgery and all is pretty good. My at my heaviest i weighed in at 168.6 kg, this was on the 25/6/2018. This was the start of 4 week Optifast diet. By surgery date i was down to 153.2 kg, this was not easy as you would probably all know and there was some moments i fell off the schedule, reason for the weight i love food. During this 4 weeks i did manage to increase my fitness as i was told this would aid in a better recovery time. i started walking 3 kms and was up to 7 kms by week of the surgery. I am 5 days post op and feeling pretty good. Drinking all the fluids pretty easily if i remember to sip. I've had no real discomfort from after day 2 post op, i was only in over night about 36 hours all up. I look forward to the next phase of this weight loss.
