Weight Regain after gastric bypass, and glycemic index card

Gakked from http://community.livejournal.com/wls/3303300.html


http://www.obesityonline.org/meetings/unique_approaches/aronne/presentation_audio.cfm

RealPlayer slide show with text and narration. Well executed. Explains weight gain after surgery, and powerful information about how eating foods low on the glycemic index keeps pounds off, keeps you full for hours, and how high-glycemic index foods screw up the message your pancreas send to the brain that you're fat and should stop eating now.

The low-glycemic index stuff is fulla sweet stuff, too. sweet ≠ sugary. The slide show talks about the drastic effect of eating instant versus steel-cut oatmeal, almost the same going down, TOTALLY different to your stomach and your brain.

Edit:

After watching http://www.obesityonline.org/meetings/unique_approaches/aronne/presentation_audio.cfm (and downloading RealPlayer) I created a glycemic 4x6 index card shopping list that I taped to my refrigerator --> http://basilwhite.com/glycemicindexcard.doc

thanks for posting that. I've hit the point where I'm going up and down between the same 10 pounds. Its a little scary.

That video was interesting and it highlights my worst fear: I've had the surgery and I would die if I regained the weight.

I wonder if the brand of crackers matters. I've found that if I try to eat a donut or nachos or something, it makes me sick and I no longer like the taste. However, I'd shoot my own mother over a box of plain Trisuits and sliced cheddar cheese. Are there some crackers that are okay, or should a person stay away from them because of the tendency to overeat them and not be able to eat protein-filled foods at mealtime?

I have a hard time with refined sugar and liquid dairy too. Both of those are high on the glycemic index. Based on the "soft calorie" research in the presentation, I'd stay away from ANYTHING that's easy to digest like a cracker.

My nutritionist said something that aligns with the presentation too -- that 50% of every meal should be protein and that I should consume the protein first. That way, you get the protein no matter what.

Being hyperinsulinemic this is something I need to constantly be aware of as well, I've got a couple of good books on the subject of the glycemic index and low GI diets if you want to know anything I can help with. Hugs!

I'm lovin' the low-glycemic diet already. No sugar blahs and I'm full all the time. Gimme black bread and frozen cherries yum yum.
