Wonderful to have you here, Ms Gee!!!

And now from the world of weight loss surgery - most of us get really intense instructions from our docs and dieticians going into the surgery about what to do - and not do - for the first 12-18 months. And after that, we're pretty much on our own. Given the malabsorption that roux en y gives us [or duodenal switch for that matter], any thoughts about what an appropriate balance of carbs/protein/fats might look like?

most of us long-term post-ops are just winging it!!!
