What's Your Rhythm?

Over at the LivingAfterWLS Neighborhood in WLS Chat we have been talking about the 2B1B Rhythm. Do you know what that is? It is a method of counting food bites to make sure you get 66% protein and 33% complex carbohydrates. With the 2B1B Rhythm it is assumed that one has made a low-fat selection food choice and that processed or "white" carbs are not on the plate.

Our Ambassador of Reception "N A" was first to identify the acronym as 2 Bites Protein; 1 Bite Carbs. The conversation has continued as others have identified their own rhythms. Celadon said, "This is the first time I have seen this thread. I am more of a 3B1B person but I just really feel like I still need the protein more. Silly stuff tends to keep us focused now doesn't it?"

I added, I'm loving the 2B1B Rhythm conversation!!! And it looks like we all have rhythm - - - just different rhythms. Honestly, I've found the 2B1B Rhythm to be less intimidating and more user friendly than calorie counting or clock watching or any of the other gimmicks I have employed in weight loss/weight maintenance efforts.

Ahhhh, but with any good rhythm, one must listen for the ending notes. The final curtain call. The last fork standing.

Hi there! I'm still pre-op, I have my RNY bypass Sept. 16th. I was searching for blogs for WLS patients, and happened across this one. I just wanted to say thanks. There's an amazing amount of info here. I'm sure it will all come in handy!
