sample post op diet



Recommended Posts

ohh quantity varies with each person. So it is hard to say I have just moved to mushies and can only each 2oz of chili in one sitting (sitting takes me almost half hour to eat it). I have heard others can tolerate up to 4 oz. It really depends on swelling how much is still there and length of stomach.

I still have to have at least one Protein shake a day to meet my Protein intake. As I progress through to more solid foods I will hopefully get all my protein from food and only a shake once in awhle. I could be dreaming but I am hopeful.

Here is mine (I'm approx. 14 weeks out).

B - Scrambled or boiled egg (one egg white only)

L - 4 oz. grilled chicken or shrimp (beef once or twice a week)

snack 1- 1 oz nuts (love pistachios)

Snack 2 - A fruit or one whole wheat toast with cheese or hummus

D - 4 oz. grilled chicken or shrimp

I usually keep my daily input to 500-600 calories, Protein - 60-70 grams, carbs and fats to under 30 grams.

Sam,

how do you prepare your beef?!? I was so worried about never being able to taste steak again... Even a bite would make me happy :)

Is there anything that you definitely do not eat because it caused issues with your stomach? I know everyone is different, but knowing what causes issues for others will make me more cautious!

Thanks!

I usually have filet mignon. My wife is the 'Top Chef' in the house but I know she marinates it overnight (in yogurt and spices) and then cooks it in a non stick pan (without any oil).

I can eat pretty much anything now. Some items bothered me the first time I had them (bread, beef) but nothing too serious and then over time I had no problem with them. I've never tried any soda, sweets or heavily fried stuff after the operation so I can't speak to those.

      OMG! I dreamt of cake!!
      As of late, my dreams have been food obsessed. Last night I dreamed of gorging on good old American sheet cake with chocolate frosting. There was white frosting as well. Good thing we can't get that in Sweden! I just hope that I haven't become too engrossed in food. BUT they are only dreams after all.

      Feel like it's time for a status update, I haven't been on here regularly in a while and I need to keep my mindset focused on my goals.
      I haven't weighed myself in ~ 3 weeks.  I think I'm becoming the opposite of "obsessive" about tracking my progress and it could cause me some issues.  The good thing is that there have still been quite a number of NSV's happening that is telling me that I'm still progressing without knowing what the scale says.
      First one is that a belt I bought about 5 weeks ago because all my other belts were too big is also on the last hole so I'll have to buy yet another belt again.  second, I bought new jeans about a month ago and I have a lot more slack in the waist than I did when I purchased them.  I also boarded a plane and had about 8 inches of slack in the belt.  Finally, I hit my goal last week of being able to ride go-carts with my kids.  The last time I tried about 4 years ago, I had to leave because I couldn't fit in the harness.  This was sweet victory and I showed those two how it was done on the race course!!  😈
