Um, I'm not sleeved yet. But - eating uncooked ramen which could expand in your sleeve? I'd think that would be a questionable choice. But, again. I'm not sleeved and not an expert.

Why, if you don't mind my asking, that particular choice of snack? Seems high in carbs and in general not nutrient rich. A month out, seems Proteins and liquids would be a priority? Don't mean that to sound snotty. Not how it's meant at all. Just wondering.

As in raw ramen! You eat them straight out of the package they make a delicious snack!

I'm wondering if it's normal to be able to eat that much especially one month post op!

Well to be quite honest, yes we can eat anything we put our mind to.

I think where the problem lies is why eat that?

It might not have harmed you but it's not very good for you at this point either...

I know, that was a bad choice of Snacks but it was a momentary lapse. I should be more careful. :mellow:

Oh and as far as the volume? Yes, it makes sense.

You will always be able to eat more of a nutritionally void food (junk) than the preferred sleeve diet of Protein....

Sad but true reality, because I know skinless boneless chicken breasts did not get me here.

Hey, no judgement here. If I was able to make good choices all the time, I certainly wouldn't be in the shape I'm in and in pre-op for surgery. The expansion possibility of this food concerns me. Don't want you to hurt yourself!

I have a feeling, I'll be doing some serious pantry cleansing to get the tempting stuff out of sight, out of mind!

        Hello Joset, why haven't you been given a diet plan? Did you have your surgery in the UK? Every surgeon has a different diet, and no two people are on the same one. Weird I know. Contact your team if you can

        Mine was two weeks clear liquids

        Two weeks on soups, milk shakes and broths all with out lumps

        two weeks on pureed foods { I couldn't stomach this step }

        two weeks on soft foods like Protein yogurt, stewed mince and veg, soft scrambled eggs. Pate on hard crackers

        Then onto any food I fancied. If you struggle on any step or with any foods go back a step for a few days. Eggs, salmon and chicken are hard for beginners.

        Sorry I missed your original post, hope you are still on here.
