    lilbearzmom got a reaction from ISleevedIt in 5 Weeks Post-OP Still Teaching Myself to Eat Slowly   
    I am also having issues with eating too fast, and I am 7 weeks out. I am a really impatient person to begin with, and sitting there chewing and chewing and chewing tiny bites doesn't appeal at all & who has time for that? I pay for it, though. It hurts and feels like it's going to come back up. Not fun, but yet I hate the thought of it taking 30 minutes to eat 3 ounces of whatever protein I have in front of me. Annoying. Yet I will keep trying to go slower. Have to.

    This is at home, but I tell my son it has broccoli in it, no matter what it is, and he doesn't touch it. It's nice to have this limited time in his life where I can trick him like that.

    Don't worry you can eat them/ I am a little over 2 mos out and am eating anything I want. and yes - I lose slowly because of it. but that's ok. I'm still losing and happy ( mostly) with what I eat.

    Interesting. Avocadoes are a superfood. I also wonder how much it has to do with just bumping up calories a bit using avocado...I bumped my calories up to 1200/day and I broke a stall- over 4 lbs in a week lost.

    Um, no, don't drop your calories. You may be eating too little, although for how far out you are, it seems about right. Dropping them to 500 will seriously f- up your metabolism, not to mention it's not healthy. I eat 1000-1200 calories a day and I am losing.

    It should get better. I am 4.5 months out and things are tasting pretty much the same as before surgery. It's nice.

    lilbearzmom got a reaction from joatsaint in Messed Up Bad   
    Not that this is a reason to eat chips and cookies, but sometimes we are able to drop a few if we go a little high on the calories for a day. It does something to our metabolism. Sounds like your body said, "Ok, she's giving me a few extra calories, so now I can let some of this fat go!"

    Where are you on your level? Regular food or soft food? I mix it up every day pretty much, but I have my standbys: Special K protein cereal (sometimes with 1/2 banana), 2 servings of skim milk/day, 4 wheat thins w/ 1 oz pepper jack cheese, 2% cottage cheese w/ fruit mixed in, pure protein bars, greek yogurt smoothies, flat out "chips" with salsa or hummus.
    Today I'm having:
    B: 1/2 cup special K w/ 1/2 c skim milk
    L: 1/2 serving of leftover meatloaf
    D: small bowl of leftover chicken stew (MIL recipe- even better the next day)
    Snacks: 12 oz skim milk, 1/2 cup 2% cottage cheese with no sugar added mandarin oranges, flatout chips with salsa for dipping
    I don't alwys eat what I have dished out- usually there's leftovers.
    I am 8 weeks out today- will be adding salads and nuts here in about a week- can't wait to make my own trail mix. I am not a no-or super low carb fanatic- I eat some carbs. My weight loss has been fine, I think. 37 lbs in 8 weeks. Total weight loss: 67 lbs
