Last night I had 1/3 cup of Channa (chick pea) Masala about 3 pieces of paneer and sauce. soo good.
Today My breakfast deviated from the plan b/c I really need to go to the bathroom
so 2/3 cup Trader Joes high Fiber Cereal and 1/4 cup raisins. . .basically I'm waiting to dump.
after that back to the small portions I just can't go without veggies for 5 days!

Leenie 09-05-2009 11:32 AM

Can you drink veggie juice during that time or prune (may be to sugary?) ?

KO 09-05-2009 12:01 PM

Probably not prune but I think veggie you can also have bean soups
but DH isn't on the bean soup wagon unless it's cold out so i didn't make any
Her site is very informative and there's pages of FAQ

even before Surg I had a lot of problems going to the bathroom so it could just be me
My major benefit from this so far
(and I'm not giving up I just had a bowl of high fibr cereal to move things along)
is not drinking with meals
and eating a considerably smaller portion
I think b/c the TJ's cereal has natural sugar and not aspartame I'm not having my bread fixation

Leenie 09-07-2009 08:00 PM

I'm doing the 5 day starting tomorrow.. wish me luck !!! ;)

KO, what do you think about it all now that its done and over and your a few days into normalcy ?


KO 09-08-2009 10:54 AM

Good Luck Leens!
I think if I do it again, I'll do 1 day of shakes adn allow for more veggies (and make the bean soups)
Tomorrow I'm goign to see my surgeon b/c of my wierd sugar thign that's happening.
the only problem I encountered from this is due to the lack of veggies
I couldn't go to the bathroom and am now slowly bringing the swelling down on my legs.
a couple days of minute muffins and protein coffee for breakfast is startign to work.
The cereal didn't do jack!

Leenie 09-08-2009 11:08 AM

Good advice KO. And thanks for the Good Luck !! I'll need it. I almost took a bite of my dd's pancake this morning LOL.. old habits ;)

So far so good.

KO 09-09-2009 11:51 AM

I was thinking about being back in "normal" eating mode. and I will say I had some food backlash mentally
meaning oh I couldn't eat this before so lets have it now.

Leenie 09-09-2009 01:59 PM

Thats where it all starts... but its good to be aware of it thats for sure.

Day 2 - going good so far :D

Leenie 09-11-2009 10:29 AM

So far so good...its hard but my body feels good. I'm eating soft food today :D


Leenie 09-12-2009 04:45 PM

Well that was interesting haaaaaaaa hard too, but I do feel pretty good. I don't thin 5 days was enuf to shrink the pouch but it put a tick in my ear and I know what I need to do ;)

I'm doing the 5 day test to help get me back on track and to see if I need a fill. I'm on day 3 and I want to say the same thing as Leenie did:
"So far so good...its hard but my body feels good. I'm eating soft food today!"

chattykathy 01-07-2010 08:10 PM

Day 4 and I'm eating firm protein. YUM!

I have discovered that I need a little fill in my band. I'm glad I did this test. I think I'll start each month off with it to see where I am and help keep me on track with my food choices.

would love to have recipes for some of your protein shakes

I'm on Day 1
Had 1/2 cup of 1% Milk with my vities
20 oz coffee with whole Milk (from the fluffly coffee place next door) and 2 scoops of isopure for Breakfast
I'm sipping on my 5 cup bottle of watery iced tea I can't do straight water
I brought baggies with 2 scoops of isopure each in them and 2 snapple bottles with 8-10 oz of Crystal light sunrise.
and a 5.5 oz can of v8 in case I get the woozies
So far not hungry a little burpy and feelign my legs start to unswell.

This scale this AM read 146 and my ankles are the size of Navel Oranges.
I took My Time Sipping My Creamsicle Protein shake and found myself a bit overfull on 10-12 oz of Crystal light and 2 scoops isopure

its about 2:17 pm in a relatively high pressure day Normally I'd be eating something now and be darn hungry for it so far I'm not and I'm holding off on Shake #3 until my body asks for it

Later last night I made 3 oz of Tuna with a tbsp of LF Mayo b/c I got really weak and was kinda scary foggy
(I think if I took the time to make her carby soups I would not hav had this happen)
I'm down 3 pounds today (Think from Legs unswelling) and my pouch is definitely more sensitive so Little sips and bites today!

I would love to have your recipe for your creamsicle and PB protein shakes. I am going to try the % day pouch test and the only protein shakes recipes I have contain fruit which is not low carb . Thanks for any help or advice you can offer.

It's so great to read your day-by-day, KO!! :carrot::carrot:

I plan to do the 5DPT soon but need to go to the store to load up on supplies first. Until then, I've been doing Days 3-5 in a rather loose way but working to get in the habit of holding off on my water for 30 minutes prior and 30-45 minutes after. It was truly a big challenge to make that adjustment but it has gotten easier in the past 48 hours. And it really does make the difference in the level & duration of any hunger pangs that come along.

Anyone else who has or is currently doing the 5DPT, I would love to hear from you. When I officially kick off my 5DPT, I'll do my best to post progress reports. ;)

Bee I just want to say make sure you have the more solid liquids stuff that has staying power. You don't want blood sugar swings
