  • so I went on Weight Watchers about a year ago I’ve lost about 80 pounds now I seem to be gaining weight I’ve lost only now 64 lb so I’ve gained some weight seems like I’m always hungry my stomach seems to be bloated please help

  • I have struggled with weight loss all my life and that’s why I took up cycling.  Even with cycling you still have to watch what you eat.  I started at 104.3 kg but weighed in at 80.7 kg this morning.  The free app called My Fitness Pal has been the biggest help. Also, I go the gym for one hour daily and work on a different body part with a view to working each body part twice a week.  YouTube is the best place to find out what to do in the gym.  Always enjoy your videos, keep them coming.

  • I’m so glad I found your videos before my surgery. There’s so much confusing information out there but your advice is the most logical I’ve seen. “It is natural to be hungry. It’s unnatural to be full”

  • 60 yo 90 grams of protein a day, I’m 67 6 foot tall down from 277 to 221. Should I cut that down to 40 to 60 grams of protein, that would be easier to achieve.

  • Dr V my concern is what work life will or could be like after surgery. I’m a massage therapist and plan on returning to work about 7 weeks after surgery.

  • I’m 3 weeks out and I think a ghost or something broke my scale lol but I wish my surgeon was more like you and told me I don’t care about the weight you lose just lose it and I’ll fight for the approval

  • I love you Dr Vuong, I’m going for the sleeve and watching you is very helpful. I’m so happy I found your videos. By the way you are so funny and down to earth, you tell it like it is I appreciate that.

  • The reason why you guys are gaining weight because of you are actually gaining muscles. I currently did the chloe ting’s workout for 2 weeks, i didnt lose any weight but i can feel im getting fit because i can see my clavicle clearly than before

  • Hi! Thank you for the video! I’ve been successfully losing weight for a year now. I’ve lost 30 pounds already but still want to lose 13 pounds maximum. But, the problem is that the same schedule that worked for me all this time, won’t work anymore: I don’t lose any weight anymore while sticking to the same schedule that has worked for me before. This has been the situation for the last 3 months. I can’t eat less because then I wouldn’t eat enough and I don’t want that. I try to eat proteine and try to drink enough water. Do you know what I can do?

  • I was supposed to have surgery 3 days ago, got rescheduled due to a sinus infection. My surgeon is awesome and fit me in, so I’m having surgery in 2 days. Had to extend my pre-surgery diet to 3 weeks �� but I’m determined fucker! ���� Thanks for all the info!!!

  • I love how after that initial f-bomb, the rest snowballed ��. It’s actually an excellent example of how making snacking exceptions will snowball into stretching out your sleeve!

  • This is super real. I appreciate you focusing on a wide range of foods. I think focusing on the pitfalls regardless of the diet was a valuable decision. I enjoy your channel and subscribed a few weeks ago. Thank you!

  • Dr V, I stumbled upon your videos just after having my surgery. Your videos have helped me so much. This video tonight was exactly what I needed!!! I was just tonight telling my husband how I was discouraged because I wasn’t loosing weight like I thought I would. Thank you Thank you, your videos give honest necessary information. I look forward to others. ( I not one that takes to kindly to to the sometimes used language, but won’t hold it against you )

    I am just now 3 weeks post-op. The liquid diet was 7 days before my Sx, and continued for the week after Sx.
    I am enjoying the soft foods now. I have gone out twice since Sx and it absolutely wore me out! Now after today’s video, it makes sense to me. Thanks again!!

  • Dr.V ur amaZing.im only a month post op.and only lost 8 lbs. Is this normal or should I have lost more by now. It’s really depressing me.. can u help me with some kind of answer. And by the way
    Do a seminar in so. Cali. LA OR come to Oxnard calif. There’s alot of people that can benefit from you here. Thank mk about it okay. Thanks

  • Join Dr. V daily weight loss group! I’ve lost over 100 pounds! Enrollment only open thru June 30th.


  • I am fasting 20:4 with 2 small portion meals of HEALTHY HOME MADE VEGETABLES AND LOW CALORIE FOODS NO SALT for 2 and a half week. And i lose ZERO FUCKING POUND! How?!!

  • I am going crazy…i am doing everything right…I track my macros, exercise…but, my tummy stays bloated and cant never go to bathroom trying all kind of belly fat burning drinks…my tummy just keeps getting big…driving me nuts!

  • My program said about 60g of Protein a day. I’m a week post OP, and I’m on soft foods. The biggest thing I struggle with is my brain. My stomach is plenty full while my brain freaks out and thinks I’m starving. It’s a holiday weekend so I have to wait until Tuesday to schedule an appointment with my therapist. I have been going through it this past week.

  • I learned so much during my 6month waiting. My dr didn’t have me on a plan to lose some weight before. His program wasn’t good enough so I listened to what you had to say.

  • I had my sleeve 2012 and now bypass for my acid reflux. They also told me I needed 60g of protein a day. I are a meal (snack) 5x a day. 2017 I gained and I can’t be trusted lol

  • I use to be skinny but then my brother got very ill (he’s alive still) but we always had to get fast food �� and so like I gained weight now that he’s better I’m trying to lose weight to 99 pound and I weigh 118 soo:(

  • “Have you ever tried losing weight”? Yes Leonard. I’ve spent most of my life trying with very little, if any success. I am 56 and have a training regime(of which cycling is a big part)that a 25 year old would struggle to maintain. I cannot lose a pound. I just laugh about it now because honestly, life is too short to make yourself unhappy especially when you look in the mirror or try to shoe horne yourself into your just-washed jeans. Great videos and thanks for all the dry sense of humour in them.

  • Honestly. You could compile this into less than a 10 minute video without sacrificing the helpful info being put out. A lot more people would hear you out. I want to hear what you have to say but who has an hour to watch 6 things? It’s not a college course.

  • I did a HIIT cardio yesterday, I was 53kg and I checked today, and now I’m 60kg!? I was also eating healthy. What’s happening to me?

  • I keep gaining weight even though it doesn’t look like that. I can easily fit into a s/small. But I still keep gaining weight. Even when I exercise and diet.

  • I’m working my ass off and ive been drinking water and cut off all foods which are bad for you and exercising a lot i look like ive lost weight and clothes are loose but the scales say ive gained it I’m not happy:(

  • I would love to attend you’re event in Las Vegas. I’ve just found you on U tube and enjoy your videos.
    I was told to expect a little gain post op week but I continue to loose. I hope I can keep increasing my metabolism.

  • SO appreciate Dr. V’s comments re: snacking after WLS. I’m trying to avoid WLS surgery later this year by finally changing my lifestyle. At the information session at the hospital last week, the nurse explained that following WLS, we’d need to eat 3 meals a day & snack 2-3 daily, too. As a struggling emotional binge eater, that info was the one thing about WLS that had me panicking. How on earth can food addicts or food lovers put food in front of themselves to eat 5-6 times a day while adhering to small portions & continually resist the temptation to eat more??? God bless Dr. V for clarifying the issue for me.

  • I like your videos halo never talk about eatting addiction & you seem to have very little knowledge of nine do you know anything about OA

  • I’m only 48 days out and I do not have any tightness. I had hoped for some restrictions but have none! I never felt any. I’m still super careful out of fear but I’ve got nothing here!

  • Im 13 years post op Rny, wls 2007 Lost 100 lbs of the 140 was my goal.my BMI was 40. Still ok with my results. I started walking 5 miles per day post op on day 7 after wls.. BIG mistake.. I spent more time in the E. R. because of dehydration…kept it off for 10 years.. year 11 to now regained 20 lbs. let myself go back to bad eating habits, fast food mostly.. I woke up one day after started watching youtube videos on Vegan lifestyle.. The recipes looked amazing, all were fat free on Chef AJ’s videos on YouTube.. love eating fruits and vegs..I started making the recipes started June 1st. 2020. I have lost 10 lbs. and don’t exercise other than riding horses once a week. I have to say though i somewhat agree with Dr. V about snacking does keep the weight on. I have found that snacking is necessary if you are diabetic like me. When im riding horse or mowing the lawn my blood sugar goes very low so i have to drink and eat just before and just after mowing the lawn or i get to dizzy and weak. I believe if your snacking the right way you wont stall or regain..eat fruits and vegs when you snack, everything fat free for snacking..I do mean EVERYTHING Fat Free..If I’d known about the Vegan lifestyle before 2007 I would of never of had Wls.. I do regret having Wls since Day 1..I mean really who really wants to rearrange your internal organs just to lose weight…(kicks self in the butt)Whats Done is Done. even did a 2 yr research before wls. If i had all the knowledge i have now about Wls and Vegan lifestyle, I would have made my life 100% Vegan. I love eating this way..and Im sure i would have lost losts of weight. My life now is 90% Vegan..Still love Dr. V… where was he in 2007? Im not a true 100% Vegan but i incooperate it 90% of my time.

  • Dr. V! You’re the most real person on the internet!! The BEST YouTuber I have ever come across!!! Thank you for the unfiltered truths! Fuckin cheese strings! LOL

  • Thank you Dr. V
    I’m 10 years out from after RNY with a 10day out revision 2nd surgery. I had 14 feet of intestine dead. My surgeon had to remove the 14 feet and left me with 10feet. So I had malabsorption issues x10.
    So I was 389 lbs, in 2 years I dropped to 188lbs / 6feet tall. Then I was eating like a super freak, drinking sodas like breathing air. And I was like, i will never gain weight becasue i have no intestines. I’m a walking duck. Wrong, the body is amazing. I started regain weight in 2018 after 8 years. I got back up to 270. And I have been struggling yo-yo dieting.
    After watching this video, you got my head right, your a blessing to the community. I started at 273 this Monday and Im droping. Today I’m 266lbs.

    I now live to be hungry.. Awesomeness

  • the thing is that i work out regularly and eat healthy and count calories every day, last week my clothes we’re getting looser and looser, now my pants don’t fit and im so frustrated bc this keeps happening over and over again. i haven’t weighed myself but based on how my clothes fit i know i gained weight but im not sure if you can gain like 10 lbs pf water in a few days.

  • Dang u are right dr i been snacking too much i guess that was my stall had surgery 11-12-19 only loss about 26 pds im gaining it back ive got to get back on track

  • I had my sleeve November 15 2019 and I’m at my first month stall thank god I watch your videos lol because I was a little annoyed! And iv still getting tired fast but I have a question how long does it last? Because I hate it lol

  • I’ve been the most active lately and the last I checked I was 61kg, I just checked today to see… 67kg? Thank you for informing me when I thought I was being unhealthy I was going to do the opposite of what I have been doing, but I’ll keep doing what I’m doing.

  • Dr. V’s videos are awesome! This one was spot on for me. I am 5 weeks post op RNY revision. I was doing great with everything until week 3. Zero lost. Zilch. I have tried to remember the stall is normal but now entering 3rd week. The panic is starting to get to me. I have another 20 until goal. I sincerely hope I can get there. Will keep soldiering forward and remind myself that this is expected and normal. Thanks for the real talk.

  • He is so right about the snacking, after the death of my first baby, I used food to comfort and soothe myself, not sure why just became an emotional eater and it took me a while to realise that trigger and that every time I had trauma I would eat, I was small to start with until I lost my baby and went to have more children, all with difficulties in pregnancy and birth. 13 years later and twice my size, I finally had the sleeve done, I lost 20 kg prior to having the sleeve done and I had it done this June 2020 and I lost 15 kg post op 5 weeks out. I’m so glad I had it done. I’m still over weight but I feel so much better losing the weight I have so far.

  • When i was my leanest I stayed the same weight/ a lil higher, but my inches was dropping like crazy. Thats the muscle mass youre gaining. Muscle weighs WAY more than fat!

  • I had lost 15 kg by health diet and different workout at home….but now with same routine I am gaining weight around 3 kg…I am so worried about it..why its happening…

  • I have been eating right working out, walking and not eating anything after 7pm and i have gained 13 pounds. I am also going through menopause and on hormone replacement therapy. Do you have any advice for women who are going through menopause. This is so frustrating.

  • Does Fenoboci Diet Plan (google it) help me lost tons of fat? I see a lot of people keep on speaking about this popular lose weight method.

  • I’ve gained 5kg after 2 weeks of eating 1000 calories, and mostly vegetables. I feel like this is a lot more than you said, but again it is 2am.

  • What about exercising to help w muscle tone and especially to help w lose skin…. I don’t agree with you stopping people from exercising

  • bruh i was 168 this morning and now im 171 back to my starting point. i eat one meal a day and drink water WHY THE HELL DO I CAN SO QUICK AFTER ONE FREAKING MEAL

  • I am binge watching your videos preparing for surgery. I am so happy that I found your videos! Thank you. I have been so underprepared and uneducated by the program I’m in. Thanks to your help I feel so much better about everything! I am taking all your advice and I wish you were MY doctor! My doctor has me feeling like I can’t eat vegetables and fruits. I have to just eat meat meat meat. I don’t want to eat meat or fake sugars so you have given me hope. Ordering your books as soon as I can. Thank you! You’re amazing!

  • Yo you’re very smart bro. I have a couple questions. Can you slowly shrink your stomach by eating less and less every day? Also being full means having that stuffed feeling rather than just simply being satiated? Thank you.

  • My surgeon is one of the top surgeons in the world & he doesn’t require patients to be on a liquid diet. He said in that time period it won’t shrink the liver enough to make a difference only very minimally to a surgeon.

  • So glad you do these videos Dr.V! My insurance had denied me and having VSG now scheduled in Mexico. Every tip I get from elsewhere that doesn’t relate to a problem helps… very informative info you give

  • There are healthy protein drink options; I must respectfully say don’t use the one Dr. V mentioned! The one he mentions has corn syrup, and canola oil. Awful for anyone’s body and not good for the liver!: INGREDIENTS (FRENCH VANILLA): Water, Sugar, Calcium and Sodium Caseinate (From Milk) and less than 2% of Corn Syrup, Canola Oil, Potassium Citrate, Magnesium Chloride, Calcium Phosphate, Cellulose Gel and Gum, Salt, Carrageenan, Ascorbic Acid, Potassium Hydroxide, Soy Lecithin, Monoand Diglycerides, Natural and Artificial Flavor, Choline Chloride, Alpha Tocopheryl Acetate, Ferrous Sulfide, Zinc Sulfate, Vitamin A Palmitate, Niacinamide, Copper Gluconate, Calcium Pantothenate, Manganese Sulfate, Vitamin D3, Pyridoxine Hydrochloride, Thiamine Hydrochloride, Riboflavin, Chromium Chloride, Folic Acid, Biotin, Potassium Iodide, Sodium Molybdate, Sodium Selenite, Phytonadione, Vitamin B12.

  • Yes, I had the stall and my surgeon basically said, “yeah, that’s pretty normal. I wish he’d said something before I left the hospital. Although he did warn me at my 1-week check-up, that my rate of weight loss was going to probably slow. My stall came at 4 weeks and lasted about 8 days.

  • Imfao I love how we all gained 15 pounds loll but guys I think that’s muscle weight and I think we are going to stay that way for a little bit till the muscle burns the fat

  • bitch ����love this.. I’m so glad I seen this video.. haven’t had my surgery yet and this info makes so much sense. This puts me in the right mind set for my 1st visit to the Bariatric Clinic to discuss surgery.. I greatly appreciate your honesty, it’s refreshing.. you’ve got another follower here ��

  • Life is for the living, not fretting over style issues, or looks maxing. We have all been created to slightly different body size, look and proportion. This is evolutionary drive. So just enjoy your cycling which will benefit you overall and particularly mental state and wellbeing allowing you to rise above the mind chatter of social norms.

  • I just had wls surgery 5 days ago.i did the 2 week liquid diet. An you are so right. I found as long as I kept telling myself I can do this.i did. Thank you for your video’s. It answers alot of questions for me.

  • That explains why i gained 4 pounds overnight, even after staying below 1900 cal and 1hr strength training. Ufff, i almost gave up.

  • Why Dr V, the curse words???? I want to learn from your wisdom and all that you are trying to reach us, but not all people cares to listen to cursing. So please do have some respect for us too. Not everyone uses nor wants to listen to such filthy language.

  • I knew about the stall but I still freaked out when it happened to me. It felt like it went on forever and my weight finally started shifting again after three weeks.

  • Keep the 30 day money back guarantee. Gives the viewer assurance that you will have faith in your product. Taking it back or With drawing it causes a question in the back of your mind about Weather will work or not. Not objectively true For sure… With the guarantee I was immediately unease with what you are offering.

  • First month that I started dieting and exercising I lost 6 pounds. Ever since I have been continuing but haven’t lost a single pound.

  • I had a 3 week stall and totally freaked out! I was depressed thinking I failed and emailing all my providers like WTF! They were like oh that’s ok it’s expected! I was like why didn’t anyone tell me this in all those classes we took!! ����

  • I am 70 yrs old. I just had my WLS 1/7/20 and this is scary. I hope I will remember Dr. V’s words. I have ordered some of his books and hope to reinforce his teachings. My doctor has told me to have three meals plus a protein drink between meals (twice a day). I am still very early in my weight loss journey and hope I can follow all the rules and continue to stay healthy.

  • I had surgery 5/24 so 6-7 wks out. In a stall currently but did my homework and know this is normal. I, however, have had soooo much energy. HW 340 SW 300 CW 240 GW 180

  • When I first started with Kaiser this year for WLS, I was placed with this AMAZING Dietitian/Nutritionist (let’s call her “D”, who was gonna be my pre and post-op helper, but….then she had a baby. I don’t think she’ll be back until after or right during my surgery. I tried several others and here’s what I got when I entered their office, “I’m not sure what you want me to do. I understand you’re in process for WLS, ok great. All you have to do is just wait for a phone call or email letting you know what your next step is, I’ll see you after surgery and we’ll go from there.”…….ARE YOU KIDDING ME!!!!!! As I told them, I need to know NOW, BEFORE, surgery. Their response to that was, “Well you know what you shouldn’t and should be doing (food) so just do it.” I even searched for PRE-OP support groups, and NOPE, those are for AFTER surgery. I tell ya I’ve had to do all this on my own and if it weren’t for Dr. V, youtube and other WLS ppl I read and vids of, I wouldn’t even go near surgery. I have put off WLS for several reasons, 1 being trying every other option out there. Not to say there isn’t great options out there but overeating, boredom and exercise are my biggest enemies. Anyway, there is NOT enough PRE-surgery, I repeat NOT ENOUGH PRE-surgery anything, for us out here. There needs to be, and they should be conducted with demos and everything (like plates, with the food on it, fake food is fine, drink portions, pics, the whole kit-n-kaboodle)! Makes you wonder…….

  • It’s hard to lose weight for me just started riding my bike took your advice from your previous videos and joined a local club ride so hoping eating right will help me finally to shake it off thanks tho for sharing with us finding it very inspiring

  • I’m 1 month post op on 12/11 I hit that stall you just talked about and I’m super tired ��. I thought it was just me. I’m meeting with my dietician on Friday because I freaked out about the stall.

  • At first I thought you were bat shit crazy but you make sense. I often felt that the foods offered for snacking and snacking in general were WRONG….Thank you…

  • I’ve been trying to lose ten pounds and tone up. I’ve gained so much weight:`( I gained five pounds and I just wanted to throw my scale out the window! I can’t figure it out.

  • Is your math OK at 1:57?
    365 x 100 Kcal is 36500 Kcal which means 4 kg of weight gain, From what I’ve learned 1 kg of fat is 9000 Kcal.
    But I can be wrong, of course.

  • I was on a diet and lost 5kg so I went back to eating normally and started to workout but I’m starting to gain my weight back and my face and stomach is getting bigger again ��

  • every day I step on a scale and I gain 1-2kg. I cry every day because of that. I get bullied because of that. Before I was ashamed to be 50kg. Now I’m 67kg. I exercise and drink tons of water daily!! I just don’t understand!

  • I have had no surgery yet, but i have always been discouraged with working out because i was hungrier afterwards! The cycle just seemed so contradictory.

  • Dr.V, I’m a female and my doctor/ nutritionist told me to get at least 60/80 grams of protein a day. They said it will help with the hair loss from sleeve surgery


  • I had a sleeve surgery 5 weeks ago. I been stalled for 3 weeks and am slowly getting moving again. I did one month of pre op liquid diet at that’s what my surgeon required. Other surgeons at the same practice have different regimes, his is the strictest, and I’m so glad I did it. Kicked lots of bad habits prior to surgery.

  • Thank you so much! I’ve been exercising, dieting, changing my diet, (OCCASIONAL snacking), and more. My weight keeps fluctuating and it’s extremely difficult to look at it.

    Even worse is that my weight gains are always greater than weight loss and it always makes me so upset. It’s happy to see I’m doing the right thing.

  • I work out 5 times a week; boxing, weightlifting and running. Eat and drink like I normally do, i avoid eating out, no coke, no wine, nothing unhealthy; yet still i gained weight, although i dont gain fat, but still the number on the scale fucks up with my head

  • LMAO! I was snacking on a handful of cherries(15 cherries) while watching this video. I felt so guilty about snacking i put the cherries back. I will add them into my lunch tomorrow with my 6 oz salad and my 4 oz of protein.

  • Yeah, I too am guilty of jumping through diet plan to others as well, I do believe that I must have tested every weight loss system that was available, however in the end not one of them helped me to reduce and maintain the weight off. I ended up trying for the very last time with the Custokebon Secrets because my cooworker who told me great things about it and so far to date I have successfully lost 18 lbs in 3 weeks!

  • I’ve noticed I look leaner and I’ve been weight training but only small weights trying to tone up but the scale is only going up! I’m like what on Earth is going on?

    I’m tracking my caloric intake and making sure I have at least 600 caloric deficit!

    I exercise 4-5 times a week and on the other days I walk and try to do at least 10k steps

    What am I doing wrong?
    It’s so frustrating

  • I love all your videos!I’m getting sleeve in 10days. would you please make video of peoples who talking shit and judge about our wls journey! like they no idea but talk shit also so much comments for just excercise a lot to tighten the loose skin ect..

  • Thank you!! Why my Lapband Doctor never explained life after surgery is beyond me, he sucks to be honest some are just about the money and don’t care about the patient I have to teach myself winging it literally, now with your videos I have hope

  • Keto works for some people. Keto (burning fat/ketones for energy) is said to reduce biking performance (sprinting and high intensity work) but I have found that it just takes time and training to get your body adapted to burning a different fuel. I also suggest salt tablets be considered as a supplement when riding because keto does have a tendency to eliminate body salt. There’s been an enormous amount of information published on youtube about keto and many folks believe it is the only way to effectively lose fat. Most people incorporate intermittent fasting with keto.

    As an aside, keep up the good work, Leonard. Your videos are always helpful and fun.

  • i eat healthy and i work out everyday for 45 mins or more and yet i’m just gaining weight like i just weighed myself and learned i gained 2 pounds in a week and i cried. thank you

  • I eat healthy, I cut junk food, I drink eight cups of water, I workout two hours a day, not only did I not lose weight, I gained weight

  • I have a question about green tea. I know it’s beneficial for weight loss and I was wondering how much green tea can I incorporate in my diet to promote weight reduction? And how do you feel about diet pills? I don’t believe in diet pills and would rather stick to a healthy diet and exercise program. Why are these harmful chemically altered medications still out there when they can cause serious harm to people? Why hasn’t anyone banned the use of diet pills that are sold over the counter? And if I started a campaign against them, would you agree with me? It’s all about saving lives and I seriously think that over the counter quick fixes just mean a quick fix to the ER.

  • Until this video I had never heard of the 5:2 diet before. So I went searching and I found a very interesting article.
    I put a link here, hoping that nobody minds that.

  • i was losing weight lately and then suddenly i started gaining, 3kg in the last week and i almost cried. THANK YOU FOR HELPING ME UNDERSTAND ��

  • Girl thank you so much for this. I started at 175 and finally officially lost my first 5 lbs a couple days ago only to weight my self today and weight in at 181. That’s the heaviest I’ve ever seen the scale and I cried. I literally just lost it. This really explained a lot and I am going to check the sodium in my seasonings for now on.

  • I had my gastric bypass in 2001.  There was only one group meeting before the surgery. In that meeting, they told me to eat 40 grams of protein a day.  They also told me that 80 percent of couples go through a divorce after their partner has had surgery….I thought to myself…that would never happen to me.  After 20 years of marriage…..I went through a divorce.   I made the mistake of taking my food addiction and transferring to another addiction…..alcohol, men and sex….which lead to my divorce.  I thought that I had a strong marriage and that I would never do anything to jeopardize that…..but I did……and I totally regret everything.  In 2001, they did not have any post surgery support groups available.  I enjoyed your lecture on the pitfalls after WLS.  Thank you

  • Dr Voc people are asking for tickets to your November 9th meet up in New York could you please please direct them to your ticket purchase please and thank you.

  • You are amazing, Dr. Vuong. You helped me break away from the health pop culture. You are making a difference like no other doctor out there! Thank you.

  • naw this doesnt explain my situation.
    I look better I’m wearing a size down shirt
    And I just scaled my self and it says I’m 22 pounds heavier!!! I dont get it!

    That’s not 5 or 10 pounds that’s 22pounds!!!

    How am I wearing a size down and gain 22pounds

    I been on a mission for 5months and I gained 22pounds ��

    Is it muscle?
    I been going hard on my work outs and diet

    And I haven’t scaled my self in 5months until today

  • Nice video! Max fatburn is as you said at 60% of max heartrate. Unfortunately the energy taken from fat stores only contributes 35% according to a study done in an Arab country a couple of years back. The study was presented at the annual International Congress Sports Science and Sports Medicine Congress 2014 in Newcastle UK and the figure was not in dispute. In other words 65% of the energy was derived from carbohydrate. A 400cal post ride snack is likely to restore lost cards. Also there will be overtime an increase in base metabolic rate which does use fat as fuel. I think what helps is to start using correct terminology and ways of measuring them. When we talk about weight gain or loss, then only because we can measure our weight easily. What we are really referring to however is bodyfat mass. This can be measured in a variety of ways with reasonable degree of accuracy in a variety of ways. The lack of weightloss following regular exercise may be a result of a shift of bodyfat mass into muscle mass. ��

  • i went up 4 pounds since last month but i’m exercising, dieting and i’m actually seeing differences on my stomach, i’m really nervous i’m gaining fat

  • Thank you for another awesome video. I am hopefully having surgery in about 8 months. Trying to prepare as much as I can (stared reading Mans search for menaning after your video yesterday) and have bought a mulcifier, started to make green smothies, quit soda only dringking tap water. Also I am no longer eating candy and are getting used to the feeing of being hungry without paniking about it. (I fainted several times as a kid and were always told it was low blood pressure and that I had to eat something with sugar, and I kept doing that getting afraid of being hungry.)

    I have also bought two of your books on Kindle. Thank you again for all the videos, I will do my very best. Also working hard on changing my life regarding my job. Hopefully I will be able to travel to America some day and see you, maybe Velocity 2022:D

  • Last week I was down 26 pounds! Then on the 6th week TODAY I gained 9 pounds. But I don’t poop. Guys say girls don’t poop, so I guess that’s true for me.

  • I did my gastric bypass surgery 5 weeks ago due for my type 2 diabetes and high blood pressure, my surgeon even didn’t explain clearly what gonna be happening after surgery. Now I’m thinking did I done mistake! Please think and specially study good before have surgery done

  • About weight stall.. why not just toss away the scale, forget about the numbers and focus on how you feel and the clothes getting “bigger” ��

  • I’m determined…f****er….I just can’t stand it. I have to rewatch because I laughed for 3 full minutes after you say that. Ohhhhh my lanta. Love it.

  • I cannot believe my good fortune to come across Dr. V’s videos! I’m just starting to research VGS and have my first consultation next week. And thank you for calling out nutritionists. I was seeing one last year for about 2 months. She had me eating so much that I gained 8 pounds.

  • Thanks for explanation you came at a right time just before I was about to throw the scale out, I haven’t pooped for 48hrs and I stopped drinking water for few days plus I had more carb last 72hr no wonder I stalled on my weight loss for a day then I added 1lb and here I was losing 1/2 pound a day.

    In short drink plenty water cut back on carbs and control my salts that should bring it back in weight loss mode.

  • I can’t tell you how much I appreciate you. During my preop stage I watched a lot of your videos to get ready. My surgeon doesn’t have any program or classes. I’m kinda flying by the seat of my pants. I’m now 7 weeks post op and I’ve been in a stall and I’ve been going insane. I’ve been going so crazy I’ve been rewatching videos to make sure I’m eating what I should be. Last time I saw my surgeon I was scolded that I wasn’t eating enough but gave me no suggestions on what I should be doing when asked. I’m all types of lost but this video just made me feel at ease. I’m not crazy… well maybe a little but I need to chill out. I thank you so much for all your wisdom!!

  • The calorie control theory is outdated, all through the 1980s we were told to eat carbs, the net result was people have got fatter and fatter, the only answer is a balanced nutritional and healthy diet mainly consisting of protein cutting out refined sugars and starchy carbohydrates

  • with me the harder and more i workedout..or was active..the more hungry i was..so losing weight is something i never do OR did..You have to be strict. You have to be on a calorie deficit in order to start losing weight..Your hunger has to just be controlled..

  • I’m on the journey for gastric sleeve nov is my month you tips are very informative I appreciate you so much anddd you keep it ������THE WAY YOU BREAK THINGS DOWN HOW TF CAN PPL GO WRONG!!

  • Doctor V do not understand that as well, why are they making me do all this snacking and 3 meals A-day I do not like all this eating that much. I eat the wrong foods but watching your videos help me to make better choices.

  • I eat healthy and am in a maintain calorie range 1650-1700 a day and I power lift but I still find myself gaining weight and my weight doesn’t change a lot, could this be a result of a eating disorder ruining my metabolism a few years back?

  • Awesome video! I’m really glad that you started this journey! I lost over 140 pounds myself. It’s a great feeling. I hope your able to reach your goals. Best of luck! Liked and followed you on Instagram as well. Thanks
