My question is What are some Medifast recipes for a healthy weight loss smoothie or shake? Thanks for any answer or 2. My other question... Hello all,.

I haven't put a message on here for a long time. I had my gastirc bypass on 29th July and am really struggling with very little energy and feeling very low. I think I've got the eating sorted now and am hardly ever sick. It took me a while to slllllooooooooowwwwwwww down my eating and chew chew chew so up it would come foamies and all. yuck! I do struggle with getting in fluids and wonder id this doesn't help my energy at all. I also don't.

Exercise.

Because of lack of energy. I have lost 33lbs and feel good about that but need some energy as I have 3 small children. My bloods came back saying I was low on.

Iron.

So have started taking a suppliment...does anyone know how long they take to kick in?.

So sorry for the rant but I feel at the end of my teather!.

Thanks for.

Hmm... I need to find out myself. I don't know what is the right answer to your question. I'll do some poking around and get back to you if I bump into an good answer. You should email the people at Medifast as they probably could assist you..

Sounds like your body is still out of balance. No wonder you are tired. Not to mention having 3 small children is tiring for the most intrepid parent LOL. Stay vigelent about your post-op regimen - get your labs balanced, push those fluids and make sure you are getting enough calories. Like any other big change, if you are always putting yourself last it really wont work. Easy to come last with all of the family demands, but.

Learning.

To do it now brings tremendous rewards in the long run...

Awe sorry you have had a rough time, but stay strong. The low.

Will definitely cause the lack of energy. Good luck...

Sorry you are having a hard time. Low.

Iron.

Is likely the cause of your fatigue. I've had the same problem, and had to up the amount of.

Iron.

I take and it's still not high enough. However, the more you get, the better you will feel. Oddly, a little.

Walking.

Might also help you increase your energy. Try for just a short walk every day and move up from there..

Hope.

This helps you...

Your.

Iron.

Supplement sounds like a good start but there are lots of other things that can contribute to fatigue. Low levels of.

Vitamin D.

And B12 also can cause fatigue. So can overloading yourself with carbs in one shot. ( I've had this happen many times until I figured out the correlation - but it doesn't happen everytime so it's still a theory. ) I get "fall asleep in my soup" tired if I have too many simple carbs all at once..

And I have to tell you, at three months out I was struggling to take care of myself, I can't imagine how much I would struggle to care for three kids plus me. Is there anyone who can lend you a hand? Perhaps then you could.

Nap.

When you needed to and take care of yourself with a cup of tea or a walk around the block..

Hang in there!..

Iron.

Wsill certainly lead to low energy as will lack of protein. Are you taking your vitamin B-12 daily? They have very inexpensive ones that disolve under your tongue, and you can also get incections (once a month I believe). Even though you are tired, please do yourself a favor and push yourself to get some.

Exercise.

Start easy, just a stroll around the neighborhood...or take the kiddos to the park and walk around the playground while they play. The first few times will suck, but once you get into it, you will notice that exercising actually increases your energy levels...

Make sure you are taking your vitamins,.

Calcium.

, and getting plenty of protein. My surgeon recommends 60-80 grams of protein per day. Also low.

Iron.

Is common, just make sure that you take your.

Supplements and try to get some foods in that are rich in.

Give yourself time to adjust to what your body went through, you had.
