Hi Liz,

By "revision from malnutrition" do you mean to say that malnutrition caused the obesity and subsequent need for Roux-en-Y (rny) gastric bypass?

Not to sway off topic, but if that is the case, my thoughts would probably be more in line with making lifestyle changes to your diet and exercise habits; not only that but also taking on a new mindset that you can hold yourself accountable to in order to help you stick with your weight loss goals until you reach them would likely be beneficial as well.

Taking on something new like changing your diet may seem drastic at first, but so does surgery for that matter. It just sounds to me like you may need to consume more nutrient dense foods, this way your body gets what it truly needs at every meal instead of continuously eating foods that contain little to no nutrients (hence why it keeps craving more, because it's not satisfied). I'm not a nutritionist, but I've been my own nutritional advocate for maintaining a healthy lifestyle over the past 8 years and truly believe that adding more nutrients (via organic fresh raw fruits, vegetables, digestive enzymes, probiotics, green drinks, etc) is the answer to many people's problems with obesity and not getting what their body needs from overly processed packaged foods.

I already had gastric bypass 10 yrs ago but i am suffering from low sugar spells, there are more vitamin changes now and need up to date info. The soonest i can see Doctor at surgeons office is mid January and im too weak and tired to wait that long.

I wonder if the low sugar is a form of hypoglycemia? My fiancé used to have issues with that as well as what we thought was chronic fatigue and at one point I would have to keep reminding her to eat every 2-3 hours to maintain a more balanced energy level. That, along with an iron/multivitamin tablet would literally "revive" her.

Do you have high protein snacks or fruit that you can keep on hand whenever you need a quick boost?

Yes i keep fruit, my worst habit right now is i quick drink coca cola when my sugar runs between 50/60. Because im so tired after cleaning, laundry, and running errands, i eat late and its putting on weight fast. I need a current schedule of vitamins and that should help. My surgeons office takes this lightly but i have started having seizures 2 years after surgery and noone knew why. I have researched myself and found when magnesium levels are very low you can be prone to having seizures. I have had to use Google as my Dr. Although my surgeon is highly rated his office does not want to help failures.

I know the coca cola is super convenient in those smaller bottles, but I'd encourage anyone who drinks it regularly to try and find a substitute for it if you can. I used to have a lot of that when I was younger and eventually weaned off it after seeing how it eroded my teeth over the years. You can clean tires with that stuff, so I can't even imagine what it does to our bodies on the inside!

Back on topic (Lol) - I personally find that higher protein meals tend to help curve the appetite and promote a stronger feeling of fullness that may make portion control and weight management a lot easier when it comes to eating late at night, or anytime of the day really. The every 3 hour rule is a good one to follow for eating this way as well.

And if I could recommend a brand of vitamins to you, (I'm not a rep or anything), it would be "dTERRA Microplex VMz Food Nutrient Complex". If you're not used to spending money on vitamins the price may seem steep at $45 for a month supply. But as someone who's tried several brands over the years, this is "one of the best" in my opinion.

That's also interesting to know how low magnesium levels can increase your risk for seizures. I wasn't aware of that until now, but you are like me using google as a Dr. It's a lot of research, but well worth the time spent once you filter through the fluff and find the concrete facts.

Hope this helps!
