How Long Until You Ate Salad, Steak, Bread?



Recommended Posts

I'm released this Friday to regular foods. Just curious how long you waited for foods that I think might be painful. Did you react to them when you did? What foods are difficult, and I should wait on?

Most painful for me was (still is) thick liquids, or pulpy liquids. Those are OK early on, so I didn't wait long. Then I quickly stopped. :)

I don't eat steak, so I can't help you there. salad I tried recently - around 3.5 - 4 months out. bread - depends. I was having things like extremely dry/crunchy crackers about 3 mos out. Soft bread I just had for the first time the other day (Subway). I picked at the bottom bun.

I don't really have difficult foods, just foods that sit heavier than others. Thick liquids about kill me (e.g. anything above 1% milk, including most Protein drinks, though I did well on one yesterday - for the first time)... pulpy fruits like strawberries and peaches. All sit heavy. Whereas something like beef Jerky - will not sit heavy, but I will LOUDLY gurgle/bubble for a good 30 mins or so after eating it.

What a person has trouble with will vary from one person to another. I'm 10 weeks, 1 day out now. I was released to eat anything my sleeve could tolerate. At around 8 weeks I had some salad and my body rejected it. I tried it again in my 9th week and am fine with it now. I also tried a little bit of bread in my 8th week primarily to know if I could eat it. I did fine with it but haven't had it again as it takes up too much space that I need for Protein.

I haven't tried steak as I don't like it so I cannot give you my experience there. I have tried a variety of other things and haven't had issues with any of them. Some of them, like chicken that isn't shredded, sit heavier than others but I am still able to tolerate them.

If I can suggest something to it is is to try one new food at a time at a certain meal. That way, if you have issues you know what is causing them. Then, once you've tried a certain food and done fine with it in a prior meal you can have it again with something new with it. Does that make sense?

Good luck to you!

I started trying those items at six weeks per my doctor's recommendation. I had no problem with salads and they are a mainstay now. I also enjoy steak cut really thin and chewed well, like carne asada or any tender cut like prime rib or rib-eye. Strangely, bread is much harder for me to tolerate.

Try new things, but go slowly and chew well.

Yes. Makes perfect sense. That's how we feed my infant!

Well, I am one month out almost 5 weeks actually.... I think I have a sleeve of steel! Nothing has bothered my stomach so far.. which is not necessarily a good thing if you think about it. I have not tried steak or salad, but I am going to soon, I have been craving salad for quite a while! I have had bread, with no problems, but it does fill you up! But I love those Duos Cheese-Its! OMG addicting, I have to be very careful... I have made that Baked Riccotta and added meatballs, very good! Also KOCH makes these little packs (2 in a pack) of chicken Cordon Bleu, they also have one with bacon and cheddar Jack cheese, and one with broccoli, and one with mushrooms. The chicken breast is small. I can almost eat a whole one. They come frozen, I bought them at Walmart. They have 25-27g of Protein each and very tasty. The thing is I chew for a long time! Can't wait for salad, I'm trying it tomorrow, I'll let you know!

I am 9 months out and still cannot do steak. I take that back, I can do steak, it just sits like a load of bricks in my stomach! Not a fun feeling. bread is sort of the same but I've found that a bite or two is ok (especially if it's toasted). Those are really the only 2 foods that I choose to stay away from.

salad on the other hand is a staple in my diet and has been since about 8-10wks out.

I think you'll find that everyone tolerates foods differently and it'll be a trial and error thing to see what works for you! :-)

I'm 3.5 months out & I have salad a few times a week no issues, little bites of bread in SMALL toasted bites like croutons go down okay. Steak is so heavy on my stomach I have tried it a few times & it still hurts once it goes down. Strangely most meats are not staying down well... chicken seems heavy too no matter how I cook it. Fish, seafood are my main source of Proteins at the moment. I loved red meats before but now my stomach says NO :) Maybe someday. Hope all of you are having a great day! x

Exactly! We have "baby" tummies and should treat them the same.

      Got my haircut today and its always amazing how much better i feel afterwards.
      i have always considered it an odd thing that i enjoy a haircut so much.
      The smell of the barbershop (no salons allowed) and the whole scissors and clippers feel and sound is so relaxing.
      I have had the same barber since 1987 and i am not sure how i will handle it if that guy ever dares to die on me. I am pretty sure that the magazines on the bottom of the stack are the same ones from my first visit.
      just started Ron Powers -Mark Twain Biography- enjoying it

      I have to say, even more than 2 years out, it is so much easier to be good when your busy and so easy to go wrong when your bored.  Crappy weather and the wife is sick so i feel trapped in this house and i have to really watch myself.  At least the holiday leftovers are gone.
      Going to get out this week even if for only a few hours, maybe go see  Ford vs Ferrari that looks real good.
      Ok, whining over, I hope everyone is doing well and had a good thanksgiving.

        I hear ya. I notice the only time I ever "feel like eating" when I'm not actually hungry is when I'm watching TV for too long.
