following: Larry stuto's own diet
performance: losing 14.0 lb a week
On May 9th I had weight loss surgery. It is called the SLEEVE. They took out 90% of my stomach and left about 3-5 oz tube. This also removed the hormone maker in the stomach that makes you hungry. This surgery is becoming the Gold Standard and replaces Gastric Bypass. The Lap band is already being not recomended due to lack of long term success.The Sleeve is covered by Most insurance companies. I was at 280lbs pre-surgery. They asked me to lose 15lbs and I lost 24-25 lbs.I was at 255 lbs at surgery May 9th. Now June 15th and I am at 223 Lbs. I just started soft foods after 2 weeks broth. I have 2 weeks of soft foods then I get regular foods. I can almost eat 1 scrammbled egg!! Im averaging 500-700 calories a day. I will be able to work up to 1200 in 8-12 months. Thats about where I will stay eating HEALTHY foods. Feel free to email or post any questions. Best of luck getting healthy. AMERICA lets BEAT the OBESITY problem!!
