    Weight loss

    I've struggled with my weight ever since giving birth to my children. So much so that I was about 100 lbs overweight. In December of 2017 I had gastric Sleeve weight loss surgery. This is where about 3/4 of your stomach is removed and you're left with an egg sized stomach. I've lost 85 lb but need to lose about 20 more. The weight loss has stopped. The surgery was a god-send and the hardest but best thing I have ever done for myself. Any one out there in my boat that still needs to lose a few more lbs but the scales just wont budge? I eat a high protein diet and just cannot eat bread anymore as it makes me sick. Any advice from anyone who's been through this same situation?

    RE: Weight loss

    Not trying to be rude, but I don't even know why you needed surgery. You could have lost all that weight just by eating a proper amount of calories and moving more. There is a show called my 600lbs life. The first thing that doctors do is lower the number of calories they eat. Simple as that, but in that show, they also do the same surgery, just because these people have habits of eating A LOT and I mean A LOT! About 20,000kcal, the average person needs only 2,000kcal...

    "I eat a high protein diet and just cannot eat bread anymore as it makes me sick." Bread is not a protein source. "Protein diets" are BS. All diets on the internet are BS. All you need to do is calculate how much calories your body needs (Basal metabolic rate) per day and count how much you eat. I'm 110% sure that you get more or the same amount of calories than you burn per day.

    Please read more, watch youtube videos more to understand how you really need to eat to lose weight, just from that one sentence I can feel that you don't have enough knowlage on nutrition.
