One of the things I've found very useful is a food and activity diary. There are many subscription (pay) services out there, but I found http://caloriecount.about.com to be a really good free site.

I've been monitoring my intake and exercise since July and have found that it helps keep me on track with both and hope it will help others. It contains a lot of nutritional information and the thing I really like is that for those items it does not already have in its database, I can add those directly off the label, then re-use them again when I consume the same item at another time.

I realise that there is alot of information here, but I wanted to add a few Youtube vids to this also. I have found these videos by searching Youtube, so anyone can find more. These are real people who have had the surgery, or real doctors. These are all from Perth Bariatric Clinic, which is Dr Cohen.
Enjoy.

About the Vertical Sleeve Gastrectomy Procedure


The Vertical Gastrectomy procedure (also called vertical Sleeve Gastrectomy, Greater Curvature Gastrectomy, Parietal Gastrectomy, Gastric Reduction and even Vertical Gastroplasty) is performed by approximately 15 surgeons worldwide. It was originally conceived of by a doctor in England and has been further developed and utilized in the United States, Germany and Belgium. It generates weight loss by restricting the amount of food that can be eaten (removal of stomach or vertical gastrectomy) without any bypass of the intestines or malabsorption.
The stomach pouch is usually made smaller than the pouch that Duodenal Switch patients have. Critics of this procedure state that while early results look promising, the lack of an intestinal bypass may lead to weight regain.
They base their criticism on older data from gastroplasty procedures done in the 1970's and 80's. Basically, it is an improvement over prior gastroplasty procedures, which are rarely done due to problems related to the placement of staples, silastic rings and mesh around the stomach pouch. In addition to avoiding foreign bodies, the other advantage over the older procedures is that the excess stomach volume is removed, not left in place.
This possibly eliminates most Ghrelin hormone production and helps to reduce the sensation of hunger that people have. Currently it is approved by some insurance companies, but may be considered investigational by others.
