My 1st question is: What are great cooking Medifast recipes that are easy to make? Looking forward for any comment. Another question... So I've seen that some people can tolerate sugar and it does not cause dumping, my question is how is that possible? I was told that sugar when introduced directly to the small bowel causes the body to increase the fluid in the bowel and "dumps" what is in there. wouldnt that be the same with everyone?.

AND... how do these people find out that they can tolerate sugar?.

I, personally, am afraid of experiencing the side effects and have stayed far away from anything that can potentially cause me to dump. I dont think I would even try something with a lot of sugar in it....

Just curious.....

I'm stumped. I'm not so sure what is the right answer. I'll do some investigation and get back to you if I bump into an useful answer. You should email the people at Medifast as they probably can answer it..

I've read a bunch of literature on this there is some consensus that only 30% or so of RNY patients dump from excess sugar or fat..

So the vast majority of people won't have dumpling..

My surgeon explained that part of dumping comes from cutting a particular nerve and that he tries to.



I have tested this a little, I can tolerate wine well.. I don't get blotto or anything. and I can have a tiny piece of chocolate,.

Personally, I'm glad for this, I don't think I'd be happy cutting out any one thing forever.. YMMV..

I am hoping I don't test when I get there. A fruit or a smallllll piece of dark chocolate may be okay. Fruit and fat are a problem for me. I won't want to go back. But I certainly am glad everyone talks about all of these things. I am sure I won't remember all of it, but it is so helpful to read and learn...

While this isn't science at my last real life fat class we took a poll and way less than 1/2 have issues with sugar. FYI while I can but don't eat the shit, that is not why I'm thin and handsome. Well thin anyway! I'm that way because I used the tool as a tool to lose fat and in the meantime I taught myself an entire new way of life. You can do the same if you just give yourself a chance..

Love Lu..

I wonder the same thing. I'll have a little piece of candy once in a while, but am afraid to try too much sugar. I've dumped twice cause I wasn't paying attention, and I don't want to do it again. I don't want to know how much sugar it takes to make me dump, and I don't 'test the waters'. We're better off without it anyway, that's what got us to where we were in the first place..

I too am afraid to try anything with too much sugar. I try to keep my sugar intake to 12 grams a day or less and if I want something sweet or chocolaty I eat a sugar free Oreo (just one and I'm full so I'm good there thankfully or I'd eat the whole bag) I have heard so many horrible things about dumping that I just don't think I want to go there...

Over the course of the evening with no problem. I had too much soup last night though and thought I was going to throw up, that wasn't too much fun!!..
