Awesome Customer Reviews

“I am 10 years post RNY, can eat anything and have gained 35 pounds! Help? After my reset, I couldn’t even eat half of my chicken. I jumped onto Back on Track and have lost eight pounds in two weeks!”

“I’m 3 years out and had a 30 pound gain. I did the 48 Hour Pouch Reset and then have been doing 4 Inspire shakes and 2 high protein meals for a month on Back on Track. I’m down 15 pounds. This is an awesome group!”

Why This Will Work for You!

We would all like a magic pill where we could eat what we want and never have to think about weight again, but that’s not reality. The truth is that naturally slim people think about their food and choices all the time. The intent of our 48 Hour Pouch Test is for you to see that your pouch STILL provides resistance when you choose the right foods.

The chicken is not magic… THE MAGIC IS INSIDE YOU! It’s been there all along. The Pouch Test renews confidence that you still have a valuable tool that will allow you to control hunger, volume, and your weight with Five Small Meals a day of lean protein and vegetables.

You can do this! We are here to help.

 

FAQ’s for the 48 Hour Pouch Reset

  1. Can I have vegetables or sauce with my chicken? 

NO, please read EVERYTHING again as you are missing the point. This isn’t supposed to be a ‘fun meal’, you are supposed to sit alone and THINK while you eat moist solid protein to FEEL the restriction in an attempt to IDENTIFY resistance you have been ignoring. It’s meant to be a few minutes of serious self awareness.

 

 2. What if I CAN’T eat chicken?

IF you cannot eat chicken, you can skip this part and go directly to the Back on Track plan, AS YOU ALREADY KNOW YOU HAVE POUCH RESISTANCE. Congratulations, your pouch works!

 

   3. I am a vegetarian, what can I eat instead of chicken? 

You need to choose a firm or solid protein source such as Boca Burgers, grilled Tempeh, firm Tofu, or an Omelet instead. Everything else is the same.

 

4. I got all the chicken down. Now what? 

Again, you have missed the point of the test and reset. The idea is NOT to sit there and power through and consume all the chicken no matter how long it takes, you are supposed to sit and think while you eat and STOP when you begin to feel as if you don’t really want any more. Start over and try it again.

      We have just changed over to this new website design and not all the pages have ‘caught up’ yet. Please try it again and you will see it works! Thanks for your patience… its a great Reset Plan! – Susan

      • Judith Freeman says:

        I am out ten years. I have gained probably 46 lbs. back from losing 150. I am unable to exercise as I fell 9/13/13 and broke my thigh bone, tore up my coomplete knee replacement, sprained my wrist and tore my rotator cuff. Missed my head as it landed in the flower bed! I beleive my puch is still operating, I just need to get busy and lose 50 lbs and in doing so I believe I will be in less pain and not loving on pain pills each day. I was shocked with a lady I know came up to me and said, “oh, i am so sorry you have gained all the weight you lost, back. I have still lost 100 lbs but need that 50 off. I am worried about losing hair again. It is so thin now.

    • Shari Hughes says:

      HELP!! I just purchased a case of protein drinks to start my 48 Hour Pouch Reset. It seems very simple to follow, but am I allowed to drink water during this time? I am expecting my drinks today, so a quick response would be greatly appreciated. Thanks.

      • Susan Leach says:

        Yes, drink as much of the zero calorie beverages as you would like… this is meant to be a liquid cleanse of sorts fueled by protein drinks. The intent is to clean out the garbage we have allowed back into our diets. 🙂 SML

        • Shari says:

          Thank you Susan, I can’t wait to get started. My Believe Protein drinks arrived yesterday. You were the inspiration for me to have RNY in the first place. I happened to see your book in 2004 and read it in one day, called the doctor the next day, and had my surgery 8-5-04. Had severe complications within 2 weeks, wound up in the hospital for 3 weeks, a few days in the SICU with a pneumothorax. Yet would do it all over again. Just need to lose about 25 lbs. Thank God I found this site.

  1. LINNEA says:

  2. Sheila says:

    Oh my goodness…I had the surgery 11 years ago Jan 2004. Lost 240 lbs over 5 years and i was down to 172 and felt awesome..got pregnant in 2009 and couldn’t find the motivation until now to reset my mind and get myself back on track for me…and to show my beautiful 5 year old daughter that we can be healthy together. No better motivator than an assertive 5 year old to help keep mommy on track.

  4. stephanie says:

    Can you help me out some I only lost 60 pounds all together an now I have gained 20 or more back. The lap band Haas been deem a failure on its part. Not mine. I exercise try to watch what I eat the. The unthinkAble comes heartburn from bell then throw up for up to two weeks at a time then it’s like liquids liquids an I d o better an eat even less exercises daily for 30 mins plus all my muscles r tighting still not looking gaining. I had mylap band in 2010 May . Doctor suggested taking band out an get the gastric bypass but I dint want to go under the knife again an insurance won’t pay. Can t talk know e a loan etc. I really am a a surpass not sure what directions I should go in. Just so tired of trying an nothing hopefully u can help me with ur opinions however taking the band out is not an option right now . Can u help? If not sorry to bother you

    • Beth says:

      if your band has failed, your insurance company will usually pay to have it removed and a different surgery. Have the prior authorization girl write a letter to them for you, have your bariatric doctor tell them about all the throwing up, have an EGD done, there are steps to take in order to get your insurance company to pay. Good luck~

  5. Jerri says:

    I did this 48 hour reset and I still don’t have the fullness. I lost 60 lbs after surgery and need 25 more. I am wondering if the 48 hours wasn’t enough time. I did not use your drinks. I used another and I did OK in the liquids but I went right back to eating badly. I am on a limited income and it’s hard for me to actually afford to eat right. Can you help me?

  6. Yolanda juncal says:

    Can’t set the 48 hour pouch reset.
    I had my surgery in2004 went in at 298 lbs weigh 182.4 now but I don’t want to gain and I go for 182 to 185 up and down at times I can eat a lot and other times very little I would like to lose another 10 or 15 lbs.

  7. Deborah says:

    Can’t access the page but have the 48 hour instructions. I need the support. My doctor is disappointed in my loss and I’m too embarrassed to go back to see him.

    • Kimberly says:

      Deborah,
      Your doctor’s dissapointed and embarrassed over your weight loss? Let me guess, doctor is fit. Just another guess , he has never had a weight problem before? Just another guess, he doesn’t think of food as a obsession / addiction which it clearly is.He should try harder to understand a disease he doesn’t have.

      I am 46 years old and it absolutely fascinates to.no end that there are people who do not think of food 24/7. I think of food every second. Like what I’m going to cook, what is on sale. What I can make with leftovers, what I can make and send to husband’s work…and so much more. I can be a pretty good support system if you need a little moral help.

      • ann says:

        I am supposed to go in for a one year check up after sleeve surgery the 15th. I dread it. I have lost 80 pounds, but my dr won’t be happy. He says there is no excuse for not losing at least 5 pounds a week. I don’t even want to go.

        ann

      • Jessica says:

        Kim….great comments….I’m 8 yrs post op and still think about food! I’m not as bad as I was before surgery but still a struggle. Nice to find someone who shares my warped brain….lol!

  8. kathydraperfitness says:

    Sorry hope this isn’t a repeat message – I tried several times to join the Facebook support group and now I can’t connect – Almost like I am blocked?? I don’t understand? I am almost 18 years out and wanting to get a weight loss restart and was going to start the 48 hour Reset tomorrow and was hoping for some support. Help???

  9. andria says:

    What is the be back on track plan, also of I still feel hungry can I drink more than 4 shakes and how much water should you be drinking also is powered zero ok to have and crystal light

    • Susan Maria Leach says:

      No we do not make samples. It is expensive to do so. This is pure whey isolate that has no odor or aftertaste blended with natural flavorings… nothing like you have tasted before. Go out on a limb and try a bag and see why these are the hottest products. They are made for bariatric tastes.

  10. Darlene says:

    I am reading all these comments on the 48 hr. Pouch Reset but can’t find out how to do it. Please help. 11 yrs. out and gained a lot back way too much. Please send me instructions and how to buy the drinks.

    • Susan Maria Leach says:

      Darlene, if you add your email address to the page, it unlocks the single page of instructions as to how to do the Pouch Reset.

  11. Lori says:

    I had gastric bypass in 2002. Lost 120 pounds but then after a couple years started gaining. I’ve gained about 80 back. I can eat very normally, like a normal person. I am so angry and embarrassed at myself. I feel like a failure.

  12. Debbie says:

    My surgery date was 4/30/2008. I made promises to myself that I have not kept. I really need help. We just returned from a Family Reunion. I found myself avoiding cameras as much as I possible, upon on our return as family members started posting pictures on Facebook, I was heart broken at how I have let myself go. I’ve gained 50% of the original weight lost and want to stop the gain and heal the hurts.

    I am going to do the 48 hour challenge tomorrow. Feeling hopeful.

  13. judith carter says:

    So glad to see this posted. I am 7 years out and have gained back 25 pounds. I only lost 80 to begin with and I was ready to just give up. Then I saw this post. Thank you. I really need this!

  14. Gayle says:

    Thank u for the inspiration! Just had 5yr anniversary from RNY…originally lost 120 but back up 40…so disgusted with myself!!! Have inspire ordered. .can not wait to get BOT!!!

  15. Susan Tyson says:

    • Mary says:

      I am 10 years out….I had bariatric surgery and.regained approx 120 lbs. I feel like a total failure.
      Not sure I can get down again to my goal weight of 150.Please Help!! Oh..I’m lactose intolerant.

  16. Kayla says:

    Is this safe to do when pregnant? I am 3 years out and pregnant with my second child my oldest is only 14 months. I have yet to get the weight off that I put on with him plus the 10 pounds that I have gained since then. I’m terrified that I will put on so much more with pregnancy and I want to avoid that at all costs.

  17. missy says:

    Could you please email me the 48 hour pouch test. And the back on track plan. Cannot get it to open here.. i am 1 and a half year out of surgery and have plateued and regained 12 lbs. I worry ive stretched my pouch. With the new year i am desperately trying to get back on track.

  18. shirley foley says:

    I had a gastric bypass in 2008 went from 264 down to 140. I don’t get help from my husband and I have a set down job, I work 14hrs a day so free time is very slim, I do walk on my lunch time but that’s not enough time to do much for the body and I don’t like to workout much by myself. and now I am back to 221 I need help! I would like to try you 40hour pouch reset.

  19. Jenny says:

    Does this work for people who had VSG? I started it today– knowing that I don’t have an actual “pouch,” but a sleeve that wants to be reset.

  20. Annette says:

    I had the sleeve in May, 2013. I am still using insulin, but way less than before surgery. I am supposed to take insulin with every regular meal (not with snacks). Should I take insulin during the 48 hour pouch reset? I’m going to be having very few carbs.

  21. Rhonda says:

    I am 10 years out from a RNY and although i lost over 100 pounds,-start weight at 333lbs, down to 223, now 345lbs… i kept it off for over 7 years, but have gained over 100 pounds in the last 3 years… I need help, I declared that i would never get back to this place and I am miserable….Please help! what do i need to do to get back on track. thank you for any insight or help!

    • Alison Garcia says:

      Hi Rhonda. It is indeed frustrating and upsetting when we regain after surgery. The 48 hour reset will help restore confidence in your pouch, and help you get back to basics. Follow the link in the article, and follow the instructions exactly as written. You can do this, have faith and trust in your pouch-it is just waiting for you to put it to work. I would then follow with the Back On Track (BOT) program. It is immensely popular,and has helped so many people beat the regain. It can help you too! Here is the link to BOT. http://www.bariatriceating.com/well-help-you-lose-bariatric-regain/

  22. NIKKI says:

    How long after the 48hr reset should you see a loss. I have done the reset plus I’ve been drinking the protein shakes for two weeks now and I thought I would see at least a two pound loss. Should this be a concern or am I just being impatient? Just wondering if I’m not doing something right. Please help. Any advise is greatly appreciated.

  23. Dawn says:

    I had my bypass approx 4 years ago. Now for the last almost 2 months severe pain in right side of back to front and under diaphragm area can’t eat hardly anything since it started. If i can, it comes back up, change in bowel habits. Usually constipated due to chronic pain and meds I take. could there be an issue from the surgery?

        Hi Betty: in the 48 hour pouch reset article, enter your email in the box halfway down the page, and follow the instructions to access the reset. Then, follow it exactly as written, and prepare to be amazed and empowered by what you can accomplish. You can do this!

  25. Kimberly says:

    Cannot open the page after confirming email tried on three different browsers how disappointing was excited about this as i am 11 years out and just wanted to do the reset and check on my pouch!

  26. Nancy Schade says:

    When I had my RNY twenty years ago ….we didn’t hear about carbs…their focus was on sugars only. Now it is making sense! Thanks for your post

  27. Carol says:

    I’m not understanding any of this I want to do with how to reset how many shakes should I drink a day how many ounces what do I mix with what should I order maybe I’m not looking at the right places but I can’t find any of it

  28. michelle says:

    I have just started the bot i am on a limited income and i bought a store brand 100%whey isolate protein powder. Is this ok to use. Also i feel very hungry can i drink more than 4 shakes a say. And when is it ok to introduce meal?

  29. monica says:

    Its been 13 years since surgery I would love more info on the products , would love to know where to go from here , some reason I am not able to see it all , thank you

  30. Leta says:

    I had the band, lost 80lbs it malfunctioned and had removed. 6 mths on own, regained most of my loss. Had the sleeve done, have lost 40lbs in 15 mths, not losing fast at all. I get very frustrated and emotional doing the yoyo thing. I drink protein shake for breakfast and lunch, then balanced dinner. Not able to exercise bad shoulder and bad knee right now. I wish that I could get a spiral loss going, at a loss. I can’t afford the inspire shakes or the food, low income.

    • Flors says:

      Its hard for me to walk I also have bad knees and left shoulder bad so sit on the couch exercise legs and arms sit on end of couch lean back do sit ups

  31. Trish says:

    I am in the same boat as other people. My doctor has a great track record. I lost weight wonderfully for about 7 months and then had to have a surgery in which I could NOT even walk for 6 weeks. That last time I saw the doctor he was not only disappointed but blamed me for everything. I told him that I’m hungry all the time and snack on the wrong foods. Their measurement of success was “how much of a hamburger” can you eat. I said all of it. They wanted me to go in and have an endoscopy but I didn’t want to go that route. So I’m struggling. I’m a grazer. I don’t eat a lot at a meal but then start to pick and snack later. It’s my choice of snacks that is always the problem. It’s frustrating but I need to get on this pouch test. I tried one before that was successful but it was for 5 days and it was great. I’m going to start with this one but may go back to that one. It is really a good system these pouch tests. With regard to the protein and other products you offer I can’t see why a vitamin packet comes in 20. A month is 30 so what’s the point of offering a 20-day vitamin? And I am OK with paying for the protein drinks, etc. But what I’m unhappy about is the price they charge for shipping. It’s exorbitant!

    • Kelly says:

      Trish,
      The 20 pack vitamins are travel/emergency single packs to be thrown in a purse, or kept at work, just incase people forget to take them at home. There were so many people complaining about the price of full bottles with no trial size or free samples, that they came up with that as a solution. Personally I find keeping a few air sealed packs in my desk drawer to be very helpful in a pinch.

      As for the shipping price on the products, they are exactly what the companies that ship for them charge. You do have the option of bypassing the more expensive faster shipping and using the ground service. I have not had that option be excessive when I select it to come from my side of the USA, and the time of arrival is realtively fast. I live in Georgia and it arrives in usually 3 to 7 days.

  32. suannedj says:

    Today I start the 48hr pouch reset. I had RNY in October 2009 at 265 pounds, down to 140 but gained 50 pounds. Need to buckle down and be accountable for this big slip up. Thank you for accepting me in this group, so far it’s been very informative and has made me feel I can do this.

  33. Angela says:

    I’ve read through all the reviews and have not seen any negatives. That makes me apprehensive, because I know how petty people can be. That makes me believe only praise is allowed on this site…I am interested in the product, but would some honest opinions.

  34. Rachael Cameron says:

    I had lap band surgery in Italy on March 2009. I lost 85 lbs. I have plateaued at 185-190lbs. I am exhausted from an 70+ hour work week and being a Mom (5 kids). One “normal person” sized meal lasts me all day long (I.e. a chik fil a salad with side of soup). I start every day with a protein drink. I only drink water & unsweetened weak ice tea with lemon. There are Lots of things I simply cannot eat without throwing up. I think the lap band works, but I have 35 more lbs to go & it’s not going away. Anyone have this problem? Any suggestions?

  35. Lisa Serigny says:

    Does the 48 hour reset work for a gastric sleeve as well? I don’t have a pouch, I had a smaller stomach but I’m sure almost 3 years post op it’s stretched.

  36. afifer246358 says:

    Hey anyone who saw my comment that I would send this to you and I posted my email, please don’t email me. I have been overwhelmed with requests and can no longer support it. If you open the PDF in Google Chrome it works just fine. Good luck with your journey. Sincerely, Alicia Fifer

  37. Klewicki says:

    Hi, I don’t think I need to test my pouch as I can barely eat chicken or any meat. 2 bites and I’m done. 10+ years out, about 15 lbs up after 10 years which isn’t so bad I guess, but I would like it gone. I can’t seem to eat a ‘normal’ meal. I take 2 or 3 bites and I’m done, then half hour later I go eat a square of chocolate lol. Then 2 hours later I’ll look for one bite of something else. I just graze all day 2 bites at a time. What is the back on track plan and where do I find it?

  38. Jodie says:

    My name is Jodie and I am starting the reset tomorrow. I had a RNY about 15 years ago. When I had surgery there was no form of education or support. I started out at 365 got down to 230 and am now 290. I am SICK of being FAT!!! I am extremely healthy just BIG!!!! My Sister just had the gastric sleeve 6 weeks ago. I have been her major support. I am also very sad and disappointed in myself. I am big because I have hangups I have never dealt with. Usually anyone who is bigger has problems that eat at them emotionally. All of my girlfriends are bigger and have had the gastric sleeve and only one has not had regain. She dealt with her weight demons. So now since I have come to terms with mine it is time for me to try the reset and make life changes. I pray as I start tomorrow that I can find success and I pray for all of you out there struggling too!! I signed up to join the Facebook page and would love to be a form of support for anyone and would love to have support too!!

    • Alison Garcia says:

      Hi Kimberly! Any sort of solid vegetable protein would work. A Gardenburger patty, something of that nature would be perfect.

  39. Angel Vick says:

    Hi,

    I’m 5 yrs out from bypass surgery. I’ve only gained 10 lbs in that time BUT I needed to lose 10 lbs then to get the mass of skin removed.

    I’m planning on starting the reset when I have my colonoscopy next week. Can’t get much cleaner than that!

    I am curious if anyone knows if I should watch out for anything or if it’s a bad idea etc.

    Part of my problem is that I can’t stomach the shakes, even the smell makes me nauseated. Any tips there?

    Thanks
    Angel
