Managing Your Sleeve Through The Holidays!

Recommended Posts

Okay so we have finally made it through the two HUGE eating holidays of the year!! Why do they have to be back to back??? Anyways I would love to here how everyone did managing their sleeves through the holidays?? Maybe even some recipes that you have modified to work for your sleeve??

I will start off by saying my main focus through the holidays has still been on getting all of my protien. I have finally started getting my Hair loss under control and I don't want to back slide now. Even though I have super thick hair I can definitely tell a difference in the thickness!! As far as Thanksgiving and Christmas Dinners go though I am pretty picky....I don't eat pork because I think its gross so the fatty ham at Christmas was easy to resist. My dinner plate consisted of 4 Cubes of Cheddar cheese, a bite size Quiche, and two deviled eggs. Thanksgiving was the hardest for me because I am the designated Green Bean Casserole maker in the family and I don't make it traditional and by that I mean the mushroom Soup is replaced with Velveeta there is bacon and ham instead of fried onions about a pound of shredded cheese on top!! Before my surgery I could really eat some of this green bean casserole I tried on Thanksgiving and my Sleeve didn't like it I also have a really hard time with poultry mainly because I don't eat dark meat and we all know that white meat can be a little on the dry side especially when my Papa forgets to turn the oven down until and does it an hour later(God I love that man) I was able to put some gravy on it and stomach it a little but the gravy was fatty and caused me to have a horrible Gallbladder attack. Thank God that came out last Monday =D I haven't tried modifying any recipes yet my Dad's wife did modify the traditional pumpkin for me on Thanksgiving and made a sugar free Pumpkin Mousse I will get the recipe from her and post it!! This was AMAZING!!! Look forward to reading your posts!

        Hello Joset, why haven't you been given a diet plan? Did you have your surgery in the UK? Every surgeon has a different diet, and no two people are on the same one. Weird I know. Contact your team if you can

        Mine was two weeks clear liquids

        Two weeks on soups, milk shakes and broths all with out lumps

        two weeks on pureed foods { I couldn't stomach this step }

        two weeks on soft foods like Protein yogurt, stewed mince and veg, soft scrambled eggs. Pate on hard crackers

        Then onto any food I fancied. If you struggle on any step or with any foods go back a step for a few days. Eggs, salmon and chicken are hard for beginners.

        Sorry I missed your original post, hope you are still on here.
