my visit to see the nutritionist was very educational. i learned about what my new stomach will hold and what size portions i will be able to eat post surgery once my stomach has healed. its amazing to hear about what the stomach will hold, but when you see the actual representation of the size of food it blows me away. my protein portion that i will eating should be no bigger than a box of playing cards; my veggies will be 1/2 cup; and the starch will only be 2 tbsp. isn't that amazing! i'm still blown away that i'll be full with that and most likely full sooner than i can finish all of that. i'm in awe of this amazing opportunity that i'm going to be able to get to experience.
