After Your Stomach Has Healed Can You Eat Fermented Foods (Like Kimchi, Sauer Kraut, Etc) And Spicy Food?



Recommended Posts

i saw the post about beer & thought i should ask. if i can't eat kimchi or spicy food, i'm not getting this surgery, because i could roll around in those & die happy. lol

not literally, of course.. and i don't mean spicy + greasy.. like mexican.. i'm specifically thinking of Korean, Thai & Indian food.. i love spice. mom swears i'm half dragon. lol

Everybody's different. My husband, also a sleever, eats spicy food frequently. I have a tender palate and can't tolerate a lot of heat. There are lots of people on here who love spicy food!

cool beans! :) dunno why i think the stomach won't be able to handle stuff after surgery.. i don't really eat all that bad.. i just eat way too much of everything & i don't move.. :/ so i'm happy that this would make me cut my portions down. :)

i appreciate everyone's patience with me & willingness to answer questions, too! :)

I think I am one of the few lucky folks. Never ate anything that didn't agree. I eat spicy all the time. Love kimchi. Now I just make better choices... Smaller portions. Just haven't tried sweets... They were my down fall on my way up the weight latter. So going to wait on that until I am closer to goal.

I don't thing I could survive with my hot sauces, spices and hot garlic salsa.

is it because of your surgery or because you don't like the taste or can't handle the taste in your mouth?.. i guess that's my concern.. if the stomach, after surgery, can or cannot handle fermented and spicy food.. if you don't like spicy stuff, then that's fine & dandy, but i do & i want to still be able to enjoy it after surgery & my stomach healed up.

I really do hope that I can eat fermented foods after I have healed enough.

I even got old fashioned Crocks for Christmas, so that I can make my own Kraut and pickles, and then get creative if all goes well. I am and have always been addicted to fermented foods, so I am happy to hear many of you can eat and tolerate fermented foods well. Even if I have to give up spicy, to protect my stomach, that's OK. I just neeeeed the fermented pickles, kraut and even organic apple cider vinegar. =)

Never tried any fermented foods to be honest, but Kombucha doesn't sit well in my stomach. Spicey stuff is no problem though

Can't eat spicy food because they make me want to drink with my meal . But I never ate spicy much before surgery for the same reason. Everyone sleeve can handle different things , we are not one fits all. Good luck

      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.
