I kindly suggest you ignore the previous poster's (meand) advice. Adding protein powder to a cake recipe will not make it healthy. You need to really take advantage of your honeymoon period and address the reasons you became MO.
There is a reason people say the operation is on our stomachs, not our heads. Cravings indicate emotional hunger, not physical hunger. Knowing the difference between the two will become helpful throughout this process. With WLS, you have eliminated a common coping mechanism: food. It is now your goal to replace that coping mechanism with healthier ones. Therapy, self-help books, even internet support groups can all help you with this. But disregarding your surgeon's plan to make or eat your favorite goodies, especially at this point in your recovery, will establish patterns you want to break. Maybe when you are in maintenance, you can play around with favorite recipes, but many people find this leads to regain.
By the way, what you are feeling is completely normal.
Here is a chart that may be helpful in determining the difference between physical and emotional hunger:
Physical Hunger: Comes on gradually and can be postponed.
Emotional Hunger: Comes on suddenly and feels urgent.
Physical Hunger: Can be satisfied with any type of food.
Emotional Hunger: Causes specific food cravings (pizza, chocolate, ice cream, etc...)
Physical Hunger: Once you are full you can stop eating.
Emotional Hunger: Eat more than you normally would. Feel uncomfortably full.
Physical Hunger: Causes satisfaction, doesn’t cause guilt.
Emotional Hunger: Leaves you feeling guilty and cross with yourself.
