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..
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...
I too am afraid of dumping. I am a month out of.
And have had up to 2 glasses of.
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!!..
I'm to afraid to take anything with sugar. I don't want to experience the side effects in anyway...
For me some things make me dump and others dont some sugars bother me and some dont I dont make it a habit of eating sugar but my sons b-day I was cutting his cake and got the frosting on my fingers I licked it off didnt bother me then after a couple more times I started to get sick so I really dont touch anything with sugar in it..
Right now, I am much too scared to even think about experimenting!..
