For Mexican food, I ordered shrimp fajitas and ate about 2 shrimp and some refried Beans. I ate the leftover shrimp for two more days! LOL
For sushi, I ordered the sashimi appetizer (9 pieces) and ate 6 pieces at first and 9 pieces now.
Of course, if you are not at the solid stage, I would suggest only refried beans and/or some sort of Soup.

I am beginning my fifth week postop and I’m starting to eat a little bit of solids I am a little concerned on what I can and what I should and should not eat. Especially now my wife has been drying for me to take her to dinner. Any suggestions? I do feel more hungry more often so I’m a little concerned

I still eat the pureed chicken salad that I made when I got the "all clear" for pureed foods.
I use canned chicken breast that I run through my food processor until it is almost the consistency of sand and then mix it with greek yogurt, hummus, salt, pepper, and a little garlic powder. Okay, I also throw in a tablespoon of gochujang because I like and can tolerate spice, but that is purely my preference. It comes out with a creamy consistency and went down fine for pureed phase.

It can also be influenced by hormone dumping, where the hormones that are stored in the fat gets dumped into your bloodstream as it burns off. It can also sometimes lead to what would normally be considered "ladies problems" of mood swings, etc. associated with that time of the month (wait - I'm not normally bitchy...!)

Welcome to the forums.
It could be you're feeling better about yourself. It could be almost anything.
I had a comparable effect a bit further down the line. I started running when I got down to a weight that doing so wouldn't kill me. It sorta got away from me and when I was running about 50 miles a week I got pretty randy after my runs. Like you, even more than in my 20s.
I don't know how normal it is, but we got the two of us. I'm willing to call it normal. Never been normal before.
Now, help me out so I know the advice to give... Is this a good thing, or a bad thing?
