Chang, I had to have a Gastric Bypass, because I was so obease. I actualy weiged 387, not 380. I am down from that to 196, and I've been fluctuating between 194 and 198. I am a lot healthier then I was, but I still have to be very caerful about not over doing it. A lot of people had G I surgery, and some of them actualy gained back all the weight, so I do, like you advised, have to incorporate more fresh veggies in my diet. The doctor wants me to eat more protien, however. Fish and fowl are the ones he would prefer I eat.
