    Gastric Surgery

    Hi, I had a gastric sleeve surgery some years ago and my stomach capacity is much reduced. I eat 6-8 small meals per day. Can I use one tablet rather than two at 3-4 of my meals rather than 2 at a normal main size meal? Thanks for your input. Mary

    Good afternoon, Mary. Welcome to the Community Forum.

    To kick things off, a required legal disclaimer: Our products are not intended to diagnose, treat, cure or prevent any disease. Because we are not doctors and do not know your complete medical history, we advise that you consult your doctor and/or pharmacist about your specific medical question. And, never stop taking any medications without your doctor's approval.

    BioTRUST Products are made with natural ingredients that are considered safe and extremely effective for nearly everyone. However, if you take prescription medications or have a medical condition, we recommend that you show our product labels to your physician and/or pharmacist for proper approval.

    With that being said, it may be helpful for us to learn more about what your specific goals are, and which product you are referring to? Generally speaking, each of our product serving sizes are based on extensive research and studies to determine the effective amounts of the ingredients that are necessary to achieve optimal results. I would venture to say that if you are referring to a weight loss product, regardless if you are consuming 6-8 smaller meals or 3 or 4 larger meals, you could still consume two servings with the directed meals. If you are referring to a product such as AbsorbMax or GlutenGone, we can discuss how to best include this product in your diet based on your meal plan.


    In the meantime, please let us know if there are any additional questions we can help address for you, and we will do our best to provide you with further guidance.

    Have an enjoyable weekend, Mary.

    Welcome back, Sarah. I know we have had various conversations on a few threads, but since this is a new inquiry, I wanted to address this on this particular thread.

    It may be helpful for you to elaborate on what type of gastric problems you may be experiencing, and if you have discussed these concerns with your physician?

    It is important to remind you that you must not rely on the information on this website as an alternative to medical advice from your doctor or other professional healthcare provider. If you have any specific questions about any medical matter you should consult your doctor or other professional healthcare provider.

    Additionally, if you think you may be suffering from any medical condition you should seek immediate medical attention. You should never delay seeking medical advice, disregard medical advice, or discontinue medical treatment because of information on this website.

    We welcome the opportunity to assist you with your concerns, and look forward to continuing this discussion with you upon your next visit.

    Products with GastricBypass Roux-en-Y

    Hi; I was thinking about trying the crave fix for a different reason and I wonder if anyone could answer my question?

    BACKSTORY: I had weight loss surgery in August of 2005. I took off around 172 pounds in 11 months and I was highly successful in keeping it off for about seven years. Due to death in family/divorce/etc etc my emotional eating took over MAINLY because (due to menopause and inabilitly to sleep through the night anymore) I would wake up hungry..real hunger not emotional hunger..and eating carbs for a long time was all I could handle AND it would put me to sleep..

    well..THAT lead to nowhere good...*sigh*

    SO: I am now (at 62/63years young) considering that perhaps my emotional eating has grown up a bit (people who do the obesity walk have a deep sense of hopelessness and helplessness that people who are only a bit overweight don't know anything about, on a tactile..or even emotional level sometimes). I have not been eating lots of sugar for over a year now, but I am still quite over weight and I suspect it is partly due to ALWAYS waking up at about 3:30 am. I do fine on about 5.5 to 6 hours of sleep..but it would be nice to start a more serious weight loss plan (Like Dr Perlmutter's plan) and feel that the CraveFix could help me alleviate some of the call to food..

    does it work this way when there is actual physical hunger? Or just emotional cravings? Because eating foods one is sensitive to can cause actual physical cravings versus just emotional ones..

    Can anyone reply to this with a more in depth answer than just an "upsell" response? My challenge is that I cant really afford the "sales" prices offered, even the $24.50 one, and it would be helpful to know how well this product works..

    If you could please :-) Thank you!
