Not Sure When I'm Full



Recommended Posts

Hi all, I'm 11 days post-op and I'm having a lot of trouble knowing when to stop eating. I'm on the full liquid phase and I have no hunger at all, so I've been eating just to keep up energy. Having no hunger, it's very hard to know when I'm satisfied. When I get gas pains in my esophogas, I stop. Has anyone had this experience?

Full liquids is a hard stage to know when you are full. When you start eating solids, you will know. If you feel uncomfortable or bloated with any full liquids it's a good bet you over did it but it would be hard to do.

Don't think about being "full" with the sleeve--think about being satisfied. On liquids, sip slow but pretty much constantly so that you get in your Protein and Water. When you move to solids, measure less than you think you can eat. You can always have more later. It's tricky in the early stages to know how much is enough but you'll figure it out over time.

Sip slowly, if you have too much you'll feel discomfort. My sign of eating too much or drinking too fast is hiccups or rarely throwing up. Just sip slowly but consistently.

It's difficult training your eyes not to be larger than your sleeve. The portions we are eating are amazingly small and the slightest amount you eat that puts you past the "satisfied" mark puts you in peril of serious discomfort. Don't eat what looks right, eat what feels right!

      Hey October Surgery friends...how are you doing? I've lost 15 lbs since surgery on 18th.42 lbs overall. Wearing clothes that feel great. Had a bout of cold and stomach flu and still having some nausea off and on after that but getting better, I think. 
      Seems like I fill up and have minor pain quicker when I eat hot foods rather than cold. Anyone else notice this?
      Still sooo glad I did this.
