Trying to lose weight while on TPN

Hello,

I had some major surgeries and was in the hospital from Feb to June of 2013. As a result of my surgeries, I don't absorb the vitamins from food I eat. So I am on 1300 cals of TPN per day. In addition, I am supposed to eat 3 meals per day. That plan has led to a 40 lb weight gain. I would like to try to lose 30 of those pounds by eating carefully and exercising.

I can't control that I am on TPN, but I can control what I eat and my daily activities.

If anyone is in a similar situation, please contact me!

Welcome to our Ostomy group. I had my share of surgeries and doing great now. Keeping off about 55 lbs at 4'10". You are too young to have all these problems. Your hormones are probably out of wack. Get the book "Hormones, Health and Happiness" by Dr. Steven Hotze. It has how your hormones run your whole body and bioidentical really helps. My daughter has been helped as well as all of us.

For the pain, sometimes it is our Thyroid...go to Thyriodanswer.com and get the new book he wrote free, just pay shipping. It will give you info to take to your dr on next appointment.

I love Dr. Joel Fuhrman for healthy eating...there is an Eat To Live team here with more info. Good luck!
