Wt gain after bypass: You need to get re-engaged with your weight loss program where you had surgery (assuming they offer a support program).

Is there a diet that I can go on to shrink my gastric bypass pouch back down to the size that it was. Have lost over 200+ want to go another 50 lbs. ?

Good luck! ...Read more

Weight loss : You may have lost weight on this diet and it may have worked for you ! I don't think it is healthy , because you are missing out on nutrients , because you are eating such low volume of food . Unless you are taking some high powered organic , food supplements , I believe , long term side effects would be hair loss , brittle nails , saggy skin . Rethink this concept .
