I'm feeling much better. The nausea was only a one day thing. It may have been caused by anything. I don't think the migraine helped much. Copper is doing a little better with not chewing on his paws. He's done with his medication and I switched him t a grain free dog food made with salmon and potatoes. I had both dogs on a chicken recipe initially, but one ended up getting diarrhea, so I switched it to a sensitive stomach recipe. The fish oils are supposed to be good for their coat, so I'm hoping this does the job. The food stinks to high heaven, but the dogs love it. Well, I made some zucchini bread last night using splenda, eggbeaters and no oil and it wasn't half bad. I substituted protein powder for some of the flour, fat free plain greek yogurt and apple sauce for the oil the recipe called for. Each slice was 160 calories with almost 6 gms of protein. It came out very moist and didn't taste bad at all. It's kind of fun experimenting with ingredients.

Hi, I'm almost 2 years post surgery (sleeve) and I notice your diet calendar is 149.57 carbs for a day. Is that normal for RNY? I just wondered about it as on the Sleeve we have to stay about 40 grams of carbs and 700 cals during the weigh loss portion of the diet. I recently gained about 20 lbs not adhering to the plan so am back on it and lost almost 2 lbs the first day. I am guess that the RNY allows more freedom to eat due to the bypass? Do you have to take a lot of vitamins on the RNY? Just wondering about the differences in our surgeries..Thanks!

Whenever you change your dogs food you run the risk of going thru the diarrhea stage. I heard that you shouldn't change it all at once, start with one quarter new and three quarter old for a few days and gradually up the amount of the new food. Did they ever find out what was causing him to chew his feet?
