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. :)

      Today was a really tough day and I turned to food (and a watered down glass of wine). The interesting part was that I felt REALLY full after eating half my go to cheat snack, tortilla chips with cheese. So the GBP is doing its job!

      The only way I can tell that I'm losing weight is from the scale and my clothes "getting bigger".

      I can now buy clothes in normal stores again. Admittedly the first time when I started trying on clothes, I really had to keep myself calm. Normally trying on clothes causes me to become SOOO depressed that it take weeks just to get over it. Now, I have to keep myself from not wanting to buy everything!
