When did Everyone start eating potatos, fries, hashbrowns? My families going out to dinner tonight not sure what I will be able to eat.

:) I could have them at 4 weeks on soft foods, but they are discouraged because they are CARBY and slider foods.

I have had a few bites of mashed potatoes and baked, but I really stay away from them.

Ya I don't plan on eating them often I'm Just at the point where I can start mushy foods so I'm trying to decide what to eat. I really don't want to get into bad habits and potatoes are my weakness. I'm not into Soups much and so I'm kind of stuck on what I should eat.

At the mushy stage...perhaps a meatloaf, but it depends on what Proteins you've tried I guess. You may not want to try something for the first time away from the safety of your own home and bathroom! lol

A baked potato may be good...depends what kind of restaurant it is; there could be numerous options. I actually had to "plan" how to eat a Soup because of the combo with liquid. You don't want to put meat and veggies in the bottom of the "funnel" and then pour liquid on top...so I actually think that Soup is more difficult than you probably want when trying to be social. :-)

Mashed potatoes were on my immediate postop mushie list; at home they could have some Protein Powder mixed in to help get in the daily Protein allotment. I will occasionally have a some roasted potatoes (lots of potassium in them, despite the carbs for those on the highly carbophobic programs. I would certainly stay away from the fried potatoes as that doesn't add anything but empty calories which you don't need now or later - a habit that would be good to break. Long term, there is nothing particularly wrong with potatoes other than they are relatively low on the nutritional density scale, but they do have useful nutrients in them - you just don't want to make them a staple long term as that will make maintaining your weight loss more difficult.

I had half a sweet potato this evening. I am two weeks out and was told i could start mashed potatoes this week but like many have said here I can eat mashed potatoes like it's my job. Another thing I discovered years back was butternut squash. If you bake it then mash it with a little light butter or margarine it is amazing!

      Donated 50 lbs of Jeans and another 30lbs of shirts to Salvation Army. 
      Had to go buy some new clothes that I used to hate, but now kind of like. Trying not to buy too many though as I know in a few months I'll be donating them as well.

      Hello everyone! I just joined the forum today. Had my surgery almost 3 months ago and lost about 44 pounds. Most of the weight was lost within the first month, and my weight loss slowed down almost to a stop. I became very frustrated. Talked with my dietitian several times, and it turns out I haven't been eating enough. Who knew! I was eating around 500 calories a day, and exercising daily. Well, I had to up my intake to 800 to 1,000 calories. I'll see what happens.
