Anybody slurpped down a raw oyster yet? They have lots of Protein and very little fat, but they may not chew up that well. I am a month post-op and looking for interesting options.

been afraid to try them. in new england we have quahogs (yes from the family guy) and you eat the raw with no chewing. I am sure that they are high in Protein. but to have to chew them kind of turns me off

I think they would be okay - since it's not fried. However, 3oz of oysters doesn't have near the Protein fish does. I know I work hard to get my 60-70g of protein a day - and oysters don't have a lot......

I looked the nutrition up again and you are right, the Protein isn't that impressive. Sometime the data on MyFitnessPal are all over the place

I love oysters, and have a relatively loose band. The only foods I seem to have problems with are carbs- Pasta, bread, tortillas etc. And eating when I’m starving. I just slurped down 6 raw oysters with no problem. They slid right down. But they were small oysters. So I would say it depends on how tight your band is and how big the oysters are. What I did was order fresh oysters from the grocery store. I shucked them myself, then added a little lemon juice and salt. I did it in the privacy of my own home in case it didn’t go well. And it went great. I’m getting more next week!

I ❤️ oysters too ❤️

I think I had my first post-op raw oyster around 2 months after surgery. Just one at that time though, i slurped it and it was bigger than a "normal" bite for me so I didn't want to eat more just in case. My capacity for them increased with time, and now I could probably eat 4-6 of them (depending on size) by themselves comfortably in one regular sitting.

However, I was eating canned smoked oysters at around 4-5 weeks post op, i think. Maybe about 2-3 of them at a time.
