Nuts and seeds



Recommended Posts

I think it was the end of my 3rd week I tried some peanuts, only 5 or so. Chewed em up till they were paste, my stomach grumbled a little, but otherwise I was fine. I had tried creamy Peanut Butter beforehand and had no problems.

You should ask your doctor. they all say something different. Some doctors say 6 months.for seeds.

My doctor says 4 months (16 weeks) for nuts and seeds. I am 11 weeks out and this is the one case in which I now eat them in moderation before the recommended timeline but chew very, very well. I am so by the book, but I am a vegetarian and knew that being able to eat 1 100-calorie pack of almonds and a little bit of chia seed every day would give me another much-needed food/snack option (not cheese! and not processed!) and keep me from having cravings while keeping the digestive system moving. I'm going to tell them at my 12-week checkup that I started early. I saw lots of people here eating them at 6 weeks. With that said, I recommend following your surgeon's guidelines and not advancing yourself....

I will wait the full 4 months to eat something like half of an "everything" bagel thin--which would be a rare occurrence, anyhow.

      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.
