"Give the 5 Day Pouch Test a try. I bet you learn your tool is not broken; it just needs a little tune-up"
Welcome to the 5 Day Pouch Test. I am Kaye Bailey and I developed the 5 Day Pouch Test in 2007 through extensive research and personal experience. Seven years after gastric bypass I started to regain weight. Weight loss surgery became another diet failure, another disappointment. My surgeon told me to "get back to basics" but he didn't tell me how. Like most bariatric patients who see weight regain, I was on my own to figure it out or surrender one more time to obesity. No matter how I vowed each morning that this would be the day I quit snacking on the soft comfortable simple carbohydrates and get back to the weight loss surgery high protein diet, by noon I was dipping into the cracker barrel or popcorn bucket or cookie jar. The cycle of morning resolve followed by mid-day submission to cravings led to self-loathing and feelings of weakness and failure.
Have you found yourself in a similar cycle? Many of us do, but it’s not because we are weak or spineless or moral failures. It turns out the human body’s metabolic system is far stronger than willpower. I wasn’t craving soft carbs by noon because I was morally weak. Those cravings were the body’s “tune engine” alarm sounding too loudly to ignore. This knowledge powered the creation of the 5 Day Pouch Test where over the course of five days we do some engine maintenance and gently transition the body from simple carbs and snacks to the WLS high protein diet supported with complex carbohydrates found in vegetables, fruit, and grains.
The plan works because when we manage our metabolic system with the same attention we give to willpower there is nothing that can stop us.
If this scenario is familiar to you I invite you to give the 5 Day Pouch Test a try. If you make your plan today and follow Day 1 tomorrow by next week you will know how magnificent and powerful you are. You own your WLS, and of course we all know WLS is “only a tool.” Give the 5 Day Pouch Test a try. I bet you learn your tool is not broken; it just needs a little tune-up.
Let’s begin and get back on track together, you are not alone.
You Can Do This!
"Hundreds of people have taken control of their surgical pouch by following the 5 Day Pouch Test. At the end of Day 5 many who were sad and hopeless at the beginning of the week report euphoria knowing the pouch is functioning properly. Hopelessness is replaced with confidence. Five days. That is all it takes to turn things around.
