Too much weight loss

Recommended Posts

Posting on a friends behalf,

A friend of mine converts from band to bypass in May. She has lost 37 kilos and is still losing. She met her goal but is still  slowly dropping weight. She wants to know if her body will slow down the weight loss?  And how can she stop losing weight?

Best bet is to speak to her dietician. I'm slightly worried I could end up loosing too much as I had sips surgery which means a slower weight loss however it's falling off and I'm almost at my goal. My dietician said it would be a matter of upping carbs in particular and she would work with me to stabilise my weight if it came to that. She also says your body stops when it's comfortable. What is your friend's bmi like? Is it normal, underweight, etc.

I second what B said- get her to speak to her surgeon or nutritionist. 

I asked my surgeon this at my last check in- she said weight loss will slow, and often people will put some back on before they settle into the new normal.
