I want to address this extreme diet I've been on the last few weeks. It's was a PRE-OP liquid diet, that was MANDATORY in order to have my LapBand removed, as safely as possible. I've seen far too many of you in the comments of my videos asking for the details and wanting to try the diet out so you can lose a lot of weight real fast. Please, don't be so stupid. It's a very unhealthy way to lose weight, and while it is effective it also has side effects. I had awful back pain, headaches, no energy, I was depressed, and my reaction time was much slower which made driving especially dangerous. If I didn't have two kids to take care of, I wouldn't have gotten out of bed at all.
I know that a lot of my audience struggles with their weight and would go to extremes to lose it... but that wasn't my intention in sharing this journey in the vlogs. I did the diet because I wanted my normal life back and I wanted my surgery to be as safe as possible. I regret sharing the details of the diet now that I know some of you are attempting it in hopes of losing weight. That wasn't my intention. If you want to lose weight, that's cool, but don't hurt yourself along the way.
