Bread, rice and pasta



Recommended Posts

Ok,

For those of you that have the band already, is it really true that you can eat NO bread rice or Pasta at all? That's what my nutritionist said. What are the effects you have actually experienced if you do?

I can eat bread but whole wheat only as per my drs instruction. I have not tried white sandwich bread but I have tried a small bite of roll or biscuits and they seem to be fine but I don't want to push it

Rice... I can eat it but it will come back up about 30 minute later so I try to stay clear

Pasta again wheat only.... I can eat the regular stuff but it usually comes back.

That said.. My starch intake is VERY limited at 1/4 c per meal... So bread doesn't find it's way to my plate often. I do eat Pasta a few times a week but it's limited quantity

I can eat bread just fine.. I only eat whole wheat though, I have had 1/3 a roll once and it went down fine, but like floridays said.. not something to push. I've only tried a couple bites of rice before my fill so not sure if it will do anything now, I have tried it since.. and also haven't done Pasta yet, but I do have some whole wheat pasta.

You can eat whatever you want, but what's the sense in getting banded to change your life and lose the weight knowing that your doctor and nutritionist don't want you to do these things because they are not good for you! Too many carbs and calories you really don't need! I read about so many girls that are depressed and quit cause they don't see results! But you know what, they don't stick to the rules! Changing your life and the habits that got us to where we are now require a lifetime commitment! Please stay on track! Do it for yourself!

With the band you can still have all the foods you enjoyed before the band just in moderation. I had surgery in September and have lost 50 pounds. I choose not to eat sweets because Im not a sweet eater but if I want it I have it.

Ive tried , small bits of Pasta, some rice but NO breads so far. I feel I need the Protein intake over anything else so I don't slide. So far so good.

Best wishes

I've had pasta no problem, only had rice once no problem (not dry white rice though. ONe of htose Unlce Ben mix things)I've had a few bites of corn bread but anything dry bothers me. I did have a half of piece of toasted garlic bread one night with no problems. Everyone is different. My doctor told me yesterday that once I get into the green zone I will want to avoid white sticky gooey types of bread, stringy stuff like celery, really dry meat. Thats about it.

He also told me once I can have anything I want its just that I won't eat as much of it as I use to. I like his attitude. :)

      I have no clue where to upload this, so I'll put it here. This is pre-op vs the morning of my 6 month appointment! In office I weight 232, that's 88 lbs down since my highest weight, 75 lbs since my surgery weight! I can't believe this jacket fit... I am smaller now than the last time I was this size which the surgeon found really amusing. He's happy with where I am in my weight loss and estimates I'll be around 200 lbs by my 1 year anniversary! My lowest weight as an adult is 195, so that's pretty damn exciting to think I'll be near that at a year. Everything from there will be unknown territory!!

      I changed my profile image to a molecule of protein. Why? Because I am certain that it saved my life.

        That's brilliant! You've done amazing!! I should probably think about changing my profile picture at some point. Mine is the doll from Squid Games. Ironically the whole premise of the show is about dodging death. We've both done that...

      Two years out. Lost 120 , regained 5 lbs. Recently has a bout of Norovirus, lost 7 pounds in two days. Now my stomach feels like it did right after my surgery. Sore, sensitive to even water.  Anyone out there have a similar experience?
