When could you eat nuts?



Recommended Posts

My surgeons instructions kind of stop at 6 weeks and up to 6 weeks it said avoid nuts. So presumably after 6 weeks I can eat nuts. Does that sound about right?

I know people eat nut butters earlier- would there be a reason to put off nuts longer than 6 weeks? I could see seeds getting stuck in your incision but nuts? Well chewed of course.

My dr said 8 weeks but I still have trouble with them at 4 months out. They sit so heavy !

My doctor's guidelines added seeds and nuts last, at 4 months out. I did eat almonds starting at about 3 months (the only thing I ate ahead of schedule) and chewed and chewed and chewed until they were like nut butter in my mouth. I don't eat them every day and I only eat one 100-calorie pack per day if I do have them. I think they are good for a little extra healthy fat.

Have not had any yet but was cleared at 6 weeks but told only on occasion due to calories and fat.

Thank you all, I was looking into healthy fats to help my hair before it starts to fall out.

I guess I better stick to avocados, tuna & salmon and maybe a couple olives here or there.

Vegasneon, good thinking--I have noticed less Hair loss since I added in a little olive oil, almond and avocado. Oh and marcona almonds--which actually seem to help me lose weight in small quantities. Obviously I don't eat all of these food on the same day. :)

      Feel like it's time for a status update, I haven't been on here regularly in a while and I need to keep my mindset focused on my goals.
      I haven't weighed myself in ~ 3 weeks.  I think I'm becoming the opposite of "obsessive" about tracking my progress and it could cause me some issues.  The good thing is that there have still been quite a number of NSV's happening that is telling me that I'm still progressing without knowing what the scale says.
      First one is that a belt I bought about 5 weeks ago because all my other belts were too big is also on the last hole so I'll have to buy yet another belt again.  second, I bought new jeans about a month ago and I have a lot more slack in the waist than I did when I purchased them.  I also boarded a plane and had about 8 inches of slack in the belt.  Finally, I hit my goal last week of being able to ride go-carts with my kids.  The last time I tried about 4 years ago, I had to leave because I couldn't fit in the harness.  This was sweet victory and I showed those two how it was done on the race course!!  😈

      I just looked through all my old pants after my pre-op pants started getting to big. Keep in mind that I wear men's pants (usually cargos) because I am so tall 5'10"/5'11" ish. I also find that men's baggies tend to fit me better.
      I started out at a 44 in waist pant and quickly found that I was back down to my 42's. So even when thise got to be too big, I had to start pulling old clothes out of storage. After finding my 38's, I thought that these would not yet fit, but when I tried them on, they fit perfectly. I also found some older pants that now fit better than I remembered. What a relief! It's not like I can pop down to the store like I could do in the US and the styles here in Sweden are all skinnt jeans which I cant stand. I also found some 36's, but I'm not mentally ready to try those on yet. The biggest challenge will be buying women's clothing again.

      slow and steady wins the race.  don't get discouraged and just keep at it. Let your sleeve do its job and try not to stress yourself out.
      hope you are all having a great summer and enjoying what your sleeve has given you.

        Great reminder about how fast you can lose weight. The mind games we play with ourselves are the worst.
