    Diet question

    May I ask what kinds of fruits and nuts do you usually eat? Also, do you feel that you can eat larger and larger amounts? I can feel this and I am still only 3 months out, so I wonder if my pouch has already screeched. Thanks!

    Diet question

    Hello, I am almost three months out and I have hit the dreaded plateau for two weeks now without any weight loss. I am told by my NUT to stick with the program, but I really feel bored with my diet. for breakfast, when I don't wat eggs, I eat feta and gouda cheese or low fat greek yogurt, but I read somewhere that these go down quickly and may not be considered "solid food" as such, and cause one to get hungry much sooner. For lunch and dinner I eat a small piece of chicken and grilled veggies. I don't have fruits. I try to get as much water in between as I can. I also feel hungry just an hour or two after the meal. Any of you experience the same? Do you snack or only do three meals a day? I exercise at least three days a week. I am also curious to learn your diets. For instance, how did you break the plateau? do you eat lentil and fava beans (I love both!), fruits, seeds, and if so when did you introduce them after surgery. Many thanks.

    While I am no means an expert, I have been through this as well. I found that water was the most difficult to drink, but I did better with decaf iced tea. I also added a few drops of mio to water and it made it easier to swallow. The easiest by far at the liquid diet stage was premier protein chocolate and the bone broth. I think this is a trial and error and you will find out what works best for you in terms of fluids. Good luck.

    It is very interesting how different bariatric programs differ in terms of some of the diet recommendations. For me, I am supposed to abstain from meat until 3-6 months from surgery date! At any rate, best of luck and let's keep each other updated since you are my surgery twin 🙂

    Indeed ShoppGirl. I am keeping my fingers crossed that the stall would be over. On another note, I am curious what calories level are you consuming. I plugged in a couple of sample plan that was provided by my NUT, and it was around 550 calories. I am around this level, and try to reach 70 mg protein. The surgeon actually cleared me to ease into the last diet phase, and I know this is earlier than others. I used to use myfitnesspal, but yesterday I started experimenting with Bartastic app and I like it.

    Many thanks for the prompt response, and glad to see that this is not uncommon. I will try to complete the profile, in spite of being technically challenged 🙂

    I was sleeved on March 10. Weight loss for the first three weeks was 10, 4.5, 3.5 lbs. During this (fourth) week, I have lost half a pound, although I am keeping track of what I eat and stay well hydrated. Anyone else experience this weight loss slowdown?

    Hi all, My sleeve surgery was on March 10. I lost 10 lbs pre surgery and 10 lbs forst week post surgery on liquid diet. Since I switched to soft food I started feeling hunger and the weight loss went down to 3 lbs. However I am glad that now I am better able to figure out my body's signals. For example, I don't feel full but if I eat a whole egg for example or if I eat it faster than I should, I feel pain under my sternum and I am not a happy camper! Luckily I didn't throw up and I am able to walk a bit every other day (I have had multiple back surgeries). No surgery pain or puncture site pain otherwise. Hope all are doing well.
  14. I had my gastric sleeve surgery ten days ago. Was having difficulty tolerating water. Today was my first followup with my doctor. He gave me the greenlight to proceed with soft food phase (a week earlier than the expected date on the center's program). I managed to eat some of the food suggested (e.g. chicken salad for lunch, tuna salad and soft veggies for dinner) with absolutely no discomfort nor feeling of any restriction. I only had to stop to stay within 2 oz but I could probably eat twice of three times as much as that amount. I feel hunger pains and I can drink the 11 oz premier protein within a few minutes. I thought the whole point of the surgery is to feel less hunger, or to only be able to eat very tiny amounts without feeling hungry. Should I be worried? Has this happened to you? Any suggestions? I mean I am happy I can keep the food I eat, but wonder if I will lose weight this way!!

    I was sleeved yesterday evening. Overall, the pain from the incision sites is almost non-existant. I walk every hour and this is fine. However, every sip of liquid I drink causes irritating pain near where the esophogaus meets the stomach. This as well as gurgling noises and nausea. Do you guys think this is normal based on your own experience? I still haven't seeny doctor after the operation. Thanks.
