I'll tell you this- if my sleeve can handle it I will 100% have movie popcorn again in my life! All things in moderation and I will certainly not be eating the entire bucket myself... But I will enjoy it. I chose sleeve so that I could have all things in moderation!

I have had buffalo wings, they are one of my favorites too. They are a bit of a splurge - even though they are high in Protein, they are also high in fat so I try to avoid them in general. They also make me want to drink beer. :)

I am 4 1/2 months out and have had some popcorn, it's not a trigger food for me so when I get it for my daughter at the movies I'm content having a few bites.

I'm not doing super low-carb so I have had some breads, I find that regular bread fills me up too much but I sometimes will have a slice of toast with my egg for Breakfast - I think the bread being toasted helps it not be too "filling" if that makes sense.

I really don't feel like I'm limited at all with my food options, as long as I get my Protein in first and don't exceed my calorie targets for the day nothing is necessarily off-limits in moderation. I think people just need to know their trigger foods and avoid the slider carbs that can get them off-track (such as the tortilla chips and salsa I ate at dinner tonight with my family - those are a bad slider for me so I really, really try to avoid them).

Love this!!! I miss eating chips and salsa/ green sauce. The fried chips make me feel sick still at a year out. I used to be able to eat an entire basket by myself.

Thank you SO much for the food porn. My family thinks I am torturing myself by watching the Cooking channel and Food Network but I love food. I just can't eat the way I used and I'm definitely ok with that. I'm one month out and know that my sleeve is still sensitive so I will take it easy before tasting my favorite food again. Happy eating with your sleeves!

I LOVE hot wings and anything spicy. I am really hoping that my sleeve will tolerate spicy again. These days I am craving the weirdest thing: Dill pickles, the crunchy Claussen dill pickles. Someday.....

I'm going to miss Krispy Kreem donuts with goop in the middle. :'( Donuts are my favorite food group.

(Then I'll go try on some small clothes and feel better ;)

My favorite Mexican restaurant in town had the BEST chicken nachos. I can't wait to have some again, in several months time, of course. That and Papa John's pizza. Mmmm.

This is such a relief! I'm not alone!! I was feeling like a food "creeper" and honestly felt I was not normal!! 10 days out from surgery now & I have been watching food porn just about everyday!! I have been craving DILL PICKLES of all things! But other than that.... all is good! Thank you for the food-porn still pics!! Love it!

        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.
