5 weeks out - here's what I'm eating

With 64 oz of liquid and a protein shake and lowfat string cheese here and there, here is a one week menu for me 5 weeks out. I'll post recipes as soon as possible for the stuff that needs it. Tip: I got a George Foreman grill and it rocks! You don't use any oil for cooking and chicken, fish, beef, and quesadillas come out great. It's fast, too, because both the top and the bottom are heated.

Ok, here's the lowdown on the 5 weeks out menu, about 1,000 calories a day, mostly under 35 carbs a day, low fat and sugar--most meals average 200-300 calories each---recipes to follow in a later post:

  4. I eat eggs about once/twice a week. My blood numbers are fine. Eggs also have very beneficial qualities, and recent research has shown that their cholesterol dangers were exaggerated.

  5. Gastric Sleeve Mexico:
    Going through a gastric sleeve mexico surgery poses some risks that must be considered first. Much like any other major surgery, there are risks that come along with it. Some of the potential gastric sleeve risks and complications include cardiovascular disease, arthritis, diabetes, and some types of cancer.

  8. Nice post !! Also Gastric bypass surgery is a type of weight-loss surgery. It's important to understand risks and results of gastric bypass and other types of bariatric surgery.
