Only during the healing, and initial losing stage were certain foods and drinks prohibited.

I had a 3 month wait on raw veggies, fruits, and nuts. Alcohol was also a 3 month wait, but my surgeon preferred that we wait until goal to start indulging in alcoholic beverages due to the empty calories.

As for after hitting goal, I have zero food or drink restrictions. I have drank soda, which some surgeons say they are forever off the list of drinks, since being around 6 months out. I really do eat and drink anything I want or need. I live a life of moderation at this point, and have since being at goal. It's just works for me.

Everything for me is being introduced slowly. My plan calls for no nuts, Beans, seeds, raw veggies, bread, rice, Pasta until 3 months out (AUG 1st for me)!! No alochol, caffeine, soda for 6 months-they really discourage it at all!

Everything else is as tolerated. I had to go thru the liquid, full liquid, pureed, soft food stages to get to regular diet. But, nothing is off limits on these stages except for these items listed.

Same for me. Lots of foods were introduced slowly ... raw veggies and popcorn, but nothing "forbidden" since goal.

Most restrictive WLS operations come with an ultimate "food as tolerated" guideline.

I know some people have a hard time with skins (I know some people with lap-bands for whom this is also true) -- Tomato skins, cucumber skins, grape skins, etc.

I have heard that extremely fibrous foods, while not outlawed, may be difficult.

My guidelines say NO Grits (i think while healing?My nut said they swell) Nuts are ok at week 7 - it suggests almonds. Difficult meat (steaks) wait until 16 weeks after surgery.

        It will be interesting to watch as this theory develops. Thanks for posting!

      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!!  😈

      I just looked through all my old pants after my pre-op pants started getting to big. Keep in mind that I wear men's pants (usually cargos) because I am so tall 5'10"/5'11" ish. I also find that men's baggies tend to fit me better.
      I started out at a 44 in waist pant and quickly found that I was back down to my 42's. So even when thise got to be too big, I had to start pulling old clothes out of storage. After finding my 38's, I thought that these would not yet fit, but when I tried them on, they fit perfectly. I also found some older pants that now fit better than I remembered. What a relief! It's not like I can pop down to the store like I could do in the US and the styles here in Sweden are all skinnt jeans which I cant stand. I also found some 36's, but I'm not mentally ready to try those on yet. The biggest challenge will be buying women's clothing again.

      slow and steady wins the race.  don't get discouraged and just keep at it. Let your sleeve do its job and try not to stress yourself out.
      hope you are all having a great summer and enjoying what your sleeve has given you.
      just got back from a wedding in OR. and man am i afraid to get on the scale

        Great reminder about how fast you can lose weight. The mind games we play with ourselves are the worst.
