I am on a come back and I am celebrating like it is 1999! Since I started cutting all those fatty foods out and doing what my nutritionist recommended I have lost 3 pounds this week. She and I discussed my coffee and lack of water intake and she told me that I was only allowed one cup a day. She explained the importance of me getting my required amount of water. She also explained that coffee contains Caffeine which is a diuretic which means that it increases the amount that you urinate and it dehydrates you. Nevertheless I knew that I was not consuming enough water on a daily basis. The coffee and caffeine was just complicating my the situation even more. The nutritionist also say that to much coffee can cause you to have stomach ulcers. So guess what….. Your girl will only do one cup of coffee and I have increased my water intake alot to the required 64 ounces a day. I schedule a follow appointment for her this month. I will also start doing the post op classes located at my Gastric bypass doctor office. This will help me stay focus and on the correct path.
I am so proud of myself and as a result I am going to fix myself a treat. I know you are thinking oh here she go….getting ready to self sabotage again. No, no, no let me explain. I am going to try a recipe for blueberry muffins that are low in fat and carbs, sugar free and loaded with proteins. I will do a post about the nutrition and add a picture if they turn out good. This may be a healthy item that I can have daily.
Love, peace and happiness!
