After 2 Weeks
Regular food, no carbonation, no liquid calories

Why not carbonation?
For most people, it doesn’t feel good, and it can possibly stretch the “pouch.”
What about alcohol?
In moderation, alcohol is OK. Twelve ounces of beer, six ounces of wine or two ounces of liquor per day is considered “moderate.” Remember that alcohol has calories, so the more you drink, the less weight you are likely to lose. Also, alcohol is absorbed more quickly, so you may reach a legal impairment level on much less.
When can sexual activity resume?
Wait one week. As for exercise, and lifting, follow the “if it hurts, don’t do it” rule, and wait another week to try again for any activity that causes pain.
How much weight should I be losing?
One to two pounds per week is enough. Losing faster than this is OK, as long as you are getting in protein three times per day and are not having frequent vomiting.
What if I eat ice cream, chips and dip, and pudding with whipped cream?
You will not feel as full on foods like this, and will probably not lose weight.
