Day two went well. Down another 1.5 this a.m. That's 4 lbs. in 2 days. Excellent! I had dinner last night at a Mexican place and opted for a double side of rice and some back beans. Ate all the rice, which tasted like it may have had some butter, lime and cilantro and about 2 spoonfuls of the beans. Delicious! I had a couple of red skins later in the evening with balsamic vinegar and ended up with some heartburn. Also some shin cramping, not that I know either are connected to the taters. I read that potatoes are higher in potassium than bananas, so the cramping surprised me.
gopintos - I've had that same conversation with my DH about eggs. Since I had WLS, my system is built differently and I can't absorb everything I eat. It also means I don't absorb calcium and vitamins A&D, so I do need to supplement. On the other hand, fats are my friend and I can eat all the bacon and eggs I want without any adverse effects. I was able to go off all my meds 3 weeks after my surgery do in part to better eating.
I plan on doing the potato feast until Monday at this point in time. Need to stop and get more taters after work.
