So I'm 10 days post op and on a soft food, mushie diet right now. I was able to add fresh fruits today, which I am VERY excited about. However, I am HUNGRY!!!! And it's not just head hunger that I've read about, I am hungry!!!!

I have absolutely no restriction when I eat, which I understand is normal, but I can eat waaaaayyyy more than I should and am not having any problems with the size bite I take or how long I chew.

Is this normal? Or am I just abnormal?!?!?!

I'm the same way.... I've been very hungry. Saw my surgeon yesterday and he said it's time for a fill. I had my surgery on May 3. Hang in there. We can do this.

It's completely normal! It's called bandster hell for a reason--it's so hard, because without restriction, you have to rely on the same old willpower that none of us really seemed to have enough of in the first place!

It gets so, so much better as you approach and achieve restriction. For now, concentrate on making good food choices (within your doctor's guidelines), and limiting portion size. You will be hungry---but there is a light at the end of the tunnel!

(Be careful with fruits. They are good, and healthy---lots of nutrients. But the higher glycemic ones can trigger blood sugar spikes that in turn trigger hunger. If you have fruit, try to have it in the context of a meal that also contains Protein and a little heart-healthy fat; this reduces its glycemic impact. Every little bit of hunger control helps!)

        Hello Joset, why haven't you been given a diet plan? Did you have your surgery in the UK? Every surgeon has a different diet, and no two people are on the same one. Weird I know. Contact your team if you can

        Mine was two weeks clear liquids

        Two weeks on soups, milk shakes and broths all with out lumps

        two weeks on pureed foods { I couldn't stomach this step }

        two weeks on soft foods like Protein yogurt, stewed mince and veg, soft scrambled eggs. Pate on hard crackers

        Then onto any food I fancied. If you struggle on any step or with any foods go back a step for a few days. Eggs, salmon and chicken are hard for beginners.

        Sorry I missed your original post, hope you are still on here.
