Thx, KO. Can you make some recommendations on what kinds of solid liquids? I'm looking at her 5DPT book so if some of those recipes worked for you, please share . . .

The bypass doesn't do the work, you do. You have to follow the diet to the letter and exercise. You can do this. It's a matter of choices - you either choose to do what results in weight loss, or you don't. Keep a food and exercise diary - myfitnesspal.com is a great place for this. Just log what you are currently eating and then you can see where you need to make modifications. Find some exercise you can do every day, mix it up but find something you enjoy. Walking is fine. You'll get more feedback if you start a new thread.

Divatoni, Susan has given you some very good feedback. Since you are interested in pursuing a different weight loss method than surgery, this forum isn't for you. Here is a link to the Diet Central forum, a place where you can discuss LA weight loss or any other method of non-surgery weight loss options.
Good luck to you!

Kaye the lady who developed this has all kind of soup recipes and whatnot for the liquid days
and you can have protein shakes all the way through if you like
or soft proteins on the firm and solid days and so on
I'm going out to lunch on day 4 however the place we're going to makes Italian tuna salad. so I'm good to go.
The whole point is to shrink your pouch/banded area, show you how little it takes to be comfy and kill the cravings.

I do think my new name should be Tinkles the clown!
hmmm, i can't live without fruits and vegetables...
