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...

      OMG! I dreamt of cake!!
      As of late, my dreams have been food obsessed. Last night I dreamed of gorging on good old American sheet cake with chocolate frosting. There was white frosting as well. Good thing we can't get that in Sweden! I just hope that I haven't become too engrossed in food. BUT they are only dreams after all.

        That's wonderful! I have trouble sitting still in the movies now. (I even fidgeted through the last John Wick, and it was awesome) I can't imagine sitting still this soon after surgery. More power to ya! Have fun!

        It will be interesting to watch as this theory develops. Thanks for posting!

      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.
