Welcome and good luck. I'm also in Canada but in Ontario. You will reach your goal in no time if you stick to the diet. I'm quiet impressed with the amount of weight that can be lost when sticking to this diet head on.. Good luck and we will be here every step of the way.

It's no picnic at first. I'm still working it out, and I'm far from perfect, but it gets better. I hope you had an ok rest of the day, and if not...tomorrow is a new day! That's why I really like a couple of sips of wine in the evening, it does something to my stomach...knots it up; makes me feel more full somehow, and it doesn't take much.

Yikes, on a completely unrelated subject, have you seen that Canadian movie, Monsieur Lazhar? Very good, though I had no idea what it was actually about when I went. If I'd known, would have brought kleenex. Really well done little movie.

Oh...one thing that helps me, and maybe will help you when your head starts thinking it's hungry...I like to go to Amazon.com, and read some of the reviews of the book "Why Weight Around". I've ordered it, but it hasn't seemed to have shipped out yet, but the reviews are actually really encouraging. Most of them very positive about 5B. Hope it helps.

Post  ElleBella on Wed May 30, 2012 2:53 am

Thank you so much for that post.. No I have not seen the movie but you have me thinking about it now. Very Happy

Today was a minor binge and a controlled 15 bite day.. I had such a bad headache this morning that in order to ensure the meds would be ok in my tummy I had to eat.. I have a digestive problem and when every I take my meds I must eat with it.. or else my liver hates me... eek

My condition is why I am here.. I was just diagnosed with Paralytic Ileus.. so i am to eat only small bites of food when Im hungry and nothing when I am not.. I am also a good 60lbs over weight so i thought why not throw in this plan to help me drop it fast.. My dr is not happy about only eating 10 bites as she is concerned I will not be able to get enough food.. so I promised her I would eat 5 for breakfast 5 for lunch and 5 for dinner... I know I will still lose weight fast as this is still only around 600 cal.. but today.. well I goofed.. i had a small fries from Mcdonalds.. just wanted them like I was nuts.. really.. uuugh.. Ok so I have eaten about 800 calories.. still ok I hope..

Tomorrow on the scale will tell all.... I feel so greatl just from eating so much less than before.. I will have days I will not eat at all do to stomache pain.. but hey on the days I am, now it feels so good to eat so much less.. You all are so great and supportive I am so grateful. bounce thank you for that..Supre Huge Hugs!!

Happy Wednesday to you all.. as I am sure I am the only one still on tuesday..lol cheers

hahaha...I think you and I had the same type of day today. In answer to your question on my journal, the Snickers doesn't keep me full nearly enough. I ate it late, at 1 pm, and by 5 all I could do was think of food. Like you, I guess I could have done MUCH more damage, but the whole "shrunken stomach"...I'm just not there yet either. Evil or Very Mad

Let's see if anything good happened today...do you ever wonder if rage burns calories? I swear my blood pressure shot up so high at work today...had to be good for at least 20-50 calories, right? LOL...Oh well. No one got physically injured and I still have my job, so guess all is well. hee hee.

New day tomorrow! I have no stomach issues where meds cause me woe, I have a gut of iron, unfortunately...love to eat. Tomorrow will be a better day for all of us! : )

Debbie, so sorry to hear about all of your health issues...just take it one day at a time and it will all even out soon, I'm sure! Keeping your bites even like you mentioned is key and will greatly assist in the stomach shrinking if that's your goal. I know the stomach shrinking really works b/c I have experienced it...but like anything else you can eat through the stretch if you want to and be back to square one. Once we are on maintenance, we will eat until we feel a tiny stretch and then stop eating and this will maintain our weight. It will come and we will get there...just stay strong and keep posting! cheers cheers cheers

I wouldn't mention this diet to your dr. unless your doctor is Dr. Lewis! : ))))) When people ask me what diet I'm on I just say strict portion control and that's what it is really. Also, I have found that a lot of times if you have to "eat a meal" to take medicine, one saltine cracker will do just fine depending on the medicine. But you've got to do what you've got to do.

I have been scheduled for surgery for next month. I just got the call.. I also have to change my diet.. No more solid food.. I have to pick up my food from the dr.. mineral packs and smoothies in a pack.. uuugh.. I am sorry to complain but I was hoping not to have to have surgery till sept.. Rolling Eyes If you don't mind I would like to still stay here with you all and fallow your journey.. I will still be losing weight but at a much slower rate.. uggh.. Embarassed

I think im going to go lay down.. Shocked

Oh yikes...I'm sorry to hear about your surgery too. Is this a pretty common procedure? Good odds it will resolve your problem? I hope so.
Hopefully you DO stick around, that way it will be easier for you to come back when you're good and ready, besides, you're such a good cheerleader, we need you around.

Ahhh Ladies you are soooooooooooooo great.. I must tell you this cheaky soon to be little thing, is still going to do the 5 bite thing affraid .. I thought it all out.. If its true I just have to eat what they give me.. well then I will 5 bite the my liquids.. the soup I will make a bit thicker .. the same with the smoothie.. as for the minerals.. they just taste like grape juice and they are a small amount.. nothing to worry about..

So I have all the calorie info on the packs.. 100 caloires for 1/2 serving of smoothie.. not bad.. and the soup is 170 for 1/2 serving.. now I am aloud to suppliment my diet with mashed potatoes, ice cream or very pureed apple sauce..lol baby food.. so I know I can do this.. I will sit somewhere around 500 cal.. unless I eat the icecream.lol

so cheaky me is on the 5 bite diet .... a modified version of it!!!! cheers


I had my smoothie for breakfast.. was a small amount.. I am soooooooooooooooooooooo hungry right now I am glad to see its coming towards lunch! geek

You are too funny.. I bet you will lose if you stick to the liquid diet, so maybe you shouldn't stress too much until after you're all better, you know? More than one way to skin a cheeky cat...you know...lol...

I'm sorry to hear your workaround didn't work out! But even 1000 calories is low, and you will totally lose weight at that amount of calories. Just focus on improving your health for the operation and beyond, and your current diet will help you achieve that goal plus help you lose weight. On the bright side, being forced to stick to the liquid diet from the doc will eliminate any cheating. Check out this calculator, it calculates your weight given an amount of calories per day and activity level.

http://www.losertown.org/eats/cal.php

Not sure if it's entirely accurate, I think it may overestimate maintenance calorie levels, but reviews I've read say it's somewhat accurate over the long-term.
