Are you back on solids?

I think I started back to eating my special k around 1.5-2 months out. I went to my nutritinist last week and told her I was eating special k for Breakfast with 1% milk, she said that was fine. During the week I have to be at work so early I don't have time for eggs. Protien shakes for some reason give me indigestion, so I eat my cereal, I just CHEW!! On the weekends I eat a scrambled or over easy egg.

I would vote against cereal high in carbs and low in Protein. If you must have cereal something like a high protein Kashi Go Lean would be a good choice. I do add about 1/2 cup aforementioned cereal to a Greek yogurt for Breakfast (with half a scoop protein powder).

agree that the Kashi brand is the BEST way to go and they now have several different types of cerals to choose from; lots of Fiber and decent amounts of protein; I add Unjury to mine to get in extra Protein.< /p>

I add a little hi fiber hi Protein cereal to my yogurt. I don't like Greek yogurt, I eat Fiber One lite peach. Only 50 calories and great with a little crunchy cereal in it.

I eat Greek yogurt with bare naked fit vanilla almond granola. It is wonderful.

I do, every day. I dont eat processed things like corn flakes, special K etc. But I do eat either oatmeal, this awesome "Power Porrij" that has grains like quinoa and amaranthe in it or home made toasted granola (full of seeds and nuts) for breakfast every single day.

I like my cereal with some yogurt and fruit.< /p>

My surgeon advised that to have cereal, it needs to be high fiber and Protein, and you would need to drink the milk first...I can't tolerate yogurt.

Somehow soggy cereal is not appealing to me...but I do miss my favorite granola.

I just wanted to add to this. When I make a salad, I throw in Fiber One cereal. I love croutons but of course there is no nutrition in them. When you add the Fiber One, you are still getting that "crunch" and once you add a little dressing you swear you were eating croutons anyway.

I agree, I add that to anything I want crunch! Great stuff.

        I haven't pooped in a weed and I'd love a 4 pound poo right now lol

      2. ms.sss

        Lol, yeah, I've been known to drop 3-ish lbs after a good (and long awaited) poop.

        .....or even after a moderate to severe dumping episode. yikes.
