I'm sure the five pounds I lost are back on my body. No crackers, but enough other crap crossed my lips to make up for them. Actually, I think the pure protein tricked my body into starving itself and now that I'm eating normally, the weight has got to be back on. I haven't stepped on the scale. I can just tell. And really, it isn't that I've been eating crap. It's that I've been eating...not just drinking...my nutrition.
I read about people on that big fat freedom board and they talk about resetting their pouches, going back to basics, etc. Now that I've done it, I wonder how often it really works for other people once they get back to normal eating, meaning regular meals of solid food representing a reasonable amount of calories.
