Obviously, the wall of the remaining after the bypass are stretching because of the old eating habits. Portion control is very important and exercises for the mid-body. Drinking one glass of water with 2-3 tbsp lemon juice before meals and cut in a half your portions from what is your current intake. After a month cut from this half another half. Add tamarind paste (can find in Tai /Asian market) to the meals. It suppress the appetite. Hope you will get good results. I've lost 60 lb for 7-8 months. PA
