I have gum, just dont swallow it- I can honestly say there is nothing I crave or miss because I am able to eat what I want within reason of course. I dont deprive myself of anything... ALL thanks to the wonderful sleeve...

Pasta of any kind: Spaghetti and meatballs, pesto, mac n'cheese, even simple butter and Parmesan. I allow myself a bite or two when my husband has it for dinner, so amazing!

I crave nothing because I am never hungry and no longer like food. I miss being able to eat a real meal. Because I can only hold a couple of bites, I cannot taste more than one thing each time I eat. Just meat, no sides..not even a bite. If I chose to eat the veggies/fruit, I have to skip the meat. I can no long eat anything sweet at all. Just a bite makes me sick every time. I did mix a piece of crumbled burger with whole kernel corn and cheese sauce yesterday (2-3oz.). It took me a while to eat it and I was sick afterward, but I have to say it was refreshing.

My Doctor told me no gum because it puts air in your stomach :( I became a huge gum chewer when I gave up smoking 22 years ago. I am also a huge lifesaver gal. Gave it all up, but it is worth it!

Being a vegetarian these things are a staple in my diet.. Why would you NOT eat them??

I miss nothing. I eat whatever I want. In fortunate that I don't want things that aren't good for me. If I want a cupcake, I have a bite of my hubby's. If he doesn't want one, I have a bite and toss the rest. Doesn't bother me to not finish food at all. Occasionally I do miss the fizz of a diet coke, but I love not having aspartame in my body more than that. I could have a diet coke - my doctor said it was fine- but I just simply would rather not.

Change your perception. You eat to live, not for emotional fulfillment. If you can train yourself in that, you WILL enjoy all of your savory bites!

The first couple of weeks I wanted a Five Guys burger & Popeyes chicken. I gave in and bought one chicken tender, it took me two sittings to eat it. That cure my cravings, it wasn't nearly as good as I rememember it being. Now food is fuel. Nothing more. I can say, chewing has made me much more aware of texture.

      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.
