Nuts?

7 posts in this topic

Does anyone remember hearing something about nuts being a no-no food? I feel like I may have heard something about it in my pre-op info session, but as I sit here eating a handful of Emerald Sweet & Salty dark chocolate Peanut Butter mixed nuts, I can't for the life of me remember what it was...

 

Anybody?

Bowel blockage huh? Hmm... So then it could explain constipation?

Nuts were one of my staple foods pre-op. I have tried them several times at different points in the past 8 months. Each time the result has been the same. My sleeve does not like them. It hurts. The stomach acts as the mechanical part of digestion and for me, I don't think my stomach can break down nuts well enough. I'm sure if I chewed them more I could handle it, but for me, chewing nuts down to a butter consistancy is gross. Can't do it. I like and can eat peanut and sunflower butter, though.

I been eating nuts since 2 months post op and I chew them well,so far is the only thing that has been working for my constipation :) YES I make my own trail mix with almonds and organic raisins and I eat 1/4 cup a day and it gives the energy I need to go for runs,walks or the gym =) Not everybody tolerates them well after surgery. Almonds are my favorites. I do a little Peanut Butter as well here and there but I limited myself to the serving size 2 tsp. They are a great source of Protein and healthy fats as well as Fiber but is small quantities ,for what I read,is also good to gain a couple pounds if you eat a lot. I love me some nuts lol

I eat a few almonds every day. Like everything, I chew the heck out of them. Like I said on some other board: there is nothing that my sleeve won't happily take. I just cannot eat dense Protein too fast.

I was told not to try them or popcorn until after 10 or 12 months, can't remember why though!
