Seafood Restaurant Test



Recommended Posts

I'm 5 days post op and decided to get out of the house and visit my family on the Island..we went to my favorite restaurant and it was so hard watching everyone eat calamari, shrimp, fish ect and I sat there eating ice chips :( My family felt bad but I was ok... I kept thinking that in a few months I too will be a able to eat seafood again :)

The good news is that for most people fish is one of the first things that is easily tolerated. In the mushy/soft foods stage tuna was my best friend...still is...it goes down so well and so much Protein too. I now enjoy shrimp, talapia, salmon, ceviche, scallops, clams, mussles and lobster. Of course I can't eat much at a sitting...but it is still wonderful to enjoy my fish!!

Love seafood and I have been eating it since 2 weeks out and haven't had any issues. Nothing fried but grilled and boiled. Protein is high so it's good for you.

Shellfish and occasional grilled white fish are actually the only non-dairy, non-veggie Protein I eat now. I used to love grilled tuna, but sleevie does not. Shrimp are super easy on my sleeve. You'll be back to them soon; hang in there!!

I can ONLY eat fish and sea food - at 6 weeks out. By sleeve doesn't like beef or chicken or pork. But it loves halibut, salmon, scallops, crab, lobster and just about any fish I've tried has been good. NOT Bluefish - that was really yucky!

It is somewhat disappointing when we go out to eat with family or friends and we can't eat the foods we love after the surgery. I went out to eat with my family and was so looking forward to vegetable beef Soup broth at my favorite restaurant only to find out that they didn't have it on the menu that day. I was totally lost. I ended up drinking some au jus and that was so unfulfilling. I was actually drooling over my hubby's hamburger. :) I was in a state of panic at that time! Of course it was all in my mine. Now I can eat anything I want but in smaller portions. I eat about 1/4th of a meal served at a restaurant. Now I'm going to just be ordering off the side menu as an add on to my hubby's dinner or lunch. Yep, that's even tooooooo much! I love it though. :)

I added sashimi salmon & tuna to my diet on an almost daily basis at about 4 weeks post-op. It was the only way I could get close to 60+gm protein/day. The only time I don't eat it is when I can't get it. I have some poke salad chilling in the fridge for lunch, as we speak. ;)

My sleeve tolerates everything, so far. Some things are a bit more uncomfortable. Fish is not as dense of a Protein as some other meats, so I can usually manage about 4 oz of sashimi or cooked fish. Not always, but usually. Sashimi is even less dense. It's just about the perfect sleeve food. I've done well with trout, swordfish, catfish, tilapia, salmon... the only thing I haven't done well with was haddock. I could eat it pre-sleeve, but post-sleeve the taste is different. It tastes really fishy to me, almost like mackerel. Yuck, 1 bite and I tossed it.

Shrimp is the only other seafood I've tried so far (though I like all kinds). I've had it friend, grilled and scampi, oh and I smoked some prawns. All did fine, bit with shrimp I'm full after about 2 oz.

I eat seafood all the time. It's really good for you. Like most, I tolerate it well. I have a pork chop sitting in my stomach that feels like a rock though.

I had a non-breaded crab cake for my birthday dinner about 5 weeks post op. I ate less than half of it and was very happy [emoji4]

I tried salmon a month post op and my tummy (I call her Dee-dee) did NOT like it.
I got salad shrimp and decided to make a mini shrimp scampi 2 months post-op. 1oz salad shrimp, 1tbsp light margarine, 1tsp minced garlic, 2oz soybean spaghetti. All together 28g Protein, 10 carbs, 5g sugar. Dee-dee loved it!

      It's Saturday!!! My fiance and I are out doing yard work and I made the mistake of not staying hydrated before going out so now my body is shaking and weak. I have my pre-op appointment Tuesday, the 2nd and I am trying my hardest to lose another 2 lbs by then.
