Doctor Appointment Today

Well, I had my 6 month doctor's appointment today. The doctor was very pleased with my progress so far. He told me as long as I follow the "3 Golden Rules" I will be successful. After reading so many blogs his rules made me laugh because I read what everyone eats/drinks and it's amazing how different doctors have different rules!
My Doctor's 3 Golden Rules:

1. Eat only 3 times a day absolutely NO snacking in between meals
2. Do NOT drink your calories
3. Portion control, no more than 4oz per meal

Luckily I pretty much abide by all of them with the exception of snacking to take my stupid gallbladder pill, which will be all gone in about 10 days!

Just thought I'd share the rules with everyone.

I asked about calcium supplements and he basically said it wasn't necessary but if it would give me peace of mind, I could take them. He said the Viactin (I think that's what they're called) the chocolate chews was OK. I figure get calcium and a chocolate fix all in one!

Will check in Saturday with my weight!

With the small amount you can eat, how does your doctor expect you to get the amount of nutrition you need when you consider that you need to majorly get protein and then have the nutrients of fruits and vegetables? To me, it would seem to be too hard to get the proper nutrition with no snacks in between? Just curious.
