5 Day Pouch Test August Bulletin:
I hope this newsletter finds you warm and well this second week of October. Thanks for spending time with me in our monthly 5DPT Bulletin.
Today we continue our discussion of the Four Rules - we are at Number 3: No Snacking. It's a tough one and I dare say most of will or have struggled with snacking following weight loss surgery. And, as you will see from the articles in this newsletter, not all bariatric centers follow the same Four Rules that include no snacking. But what is consistent, across the front lines of those of us living with weight loss surgery, is that out-of-control snacking on poorly chosen foods leads to a stall in weight loss and may possibly lead to weight gain. So please, take a look at the information here and revisit the information you were provided at the time of your surgery. Find your personal position on the "No Snacking" rule based on knowledge, experience, and environment -- it is the most empowering thing you can do for yourself in this ongoing battle of weight management in a world where it is much easier to be fat.
If you haven't heard, the LivingAfterWLS publications, including the 5DPT Owner's Manual, are now available as eBooks. Check your favorite store or visit the LivingAfterWLS General Store to learn more. Enjoy!
I wish you the very best today and always!
