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. ?
Probably not: Diet alone will not shrink the pouch. However, limiting your portion sizes should help. Be sure you are limiting high fat foods and carbohydrates. Most people eat too much of these. If you limit them you should lose weight. Also, are you exercising? If you walk daily it should help with weight loss. Be sure to talk with your doctor about a good goal weight.

I am on antipsychotics gained weight I have diet exercise no luck while on it doc won't take me off thinking of lapband or gastric bypass ?
Stay on meds!: I know u asked about surg, but meds first. Anger issues: i can see why your doc would want you to stay on your meds. However, none of the meds listed are antipsychotics, so I am confused. Phentermine, while for wt loss, can make anger worse. See if doc will try metformin instead.
