Did you eat grits in post- op?



Recommended Posts

I am nearly 3 weeks out and I think the NUT told me grits were okay for soft foods but no seed or skins, I am having a hard time thinking grits are okay but want some so bad!

My nutritionist also said grits were fine.

I'm not allowed grits because my surgeon/his dieticians think they are pretty much nutritionally worthless. I could consider them six months after surgery but I don't think I want to start eating that kind of starchy/carby food until I reach my goal. But if your nutritionist says they are approved, as long as they fit in your calorie and carb levels and you aren't having trouble meeting your Protein goals, I say go for it!

Ouch! Good point! Guess I have got to retrain the brain :-)

Grits used to be one of my favorite foods preop, with lots of butter and melted cheese. And a slice of cold pizza (don't ask).

I'm gonna go cry now.

I'm going to leave you southerners to your grit-laden fantasies! At least there's one food I won't crave! We are famous for our lobsters up here. Of course, I hate lobster...so I guess that's 2 foods I won't crave! :)

Now that's what I'm thinking with some salt and pepper, yum!

Also you can mix some unflavored Protein in!

Or sprinkle it on pizza just like parmigiana!

Hehehehe...

      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!

      Hi, congrats on your surgery!  Saw you went to Dr. Pleatman.  I've been between doing the Lap Band and sleeve.  I was suppose to have a consultation with Dr. Pleatman this month.  So far great experience with his office coordinator Carrie (sp?).   Feeling really scared and nervous about getting the sleeve.  If you can share...how was your experience with Dr. Pleatman's office and the surgery?   Thanks!

      I'm not new, I was an active Lapbander from:

      February 6, 2017 Here I am on October 4, 2019 thinking back over my Lapband journey and how I thought I would be banded for life. Unfortunately, I have been sick for some time, and am on medications; and well my weight has constantly slowly increased. I was 225 pounds when I had my Lapband surgery on Dec. 17, 2010. At least my weight hasn't reached 210. I have been fluctuating between 202-206. For that, I'm grateful. I'm just excited to be able to have another tool to assist me with my weight loss journey. I'm not looking forward to the liquid stage, however.
