I think what i meant is more answers and more opinions

Sweetie, I didn't realize you were only 19. Do you have a support system? Do you live at home with your momma or are you out on your own? I was out of my mom & dad's at 18 so I can certainly relate to trying to find affordable foods especially on this crazy diet. According to my diet plan at a month out you should still be on mushy foods. If you're craving something salty & affordable I would suggest getting a carton if eggs or a can of blue runner red Beans. Throw out the noodles in your ramen pack & mix the powder with Water & drink the broth only. Next week or two you can start having tuna fish & crackers on Melba toast or multigrain crackers. Something that really hit home for me that my nutritionist said is that we only have 20% of a normal person's stomach. Therefore, you only have 20% of the stomach acid a normal person has so we can't digest foods as well as we used to. food could literally sit in your stomach undigested until it rots & creates an ulcer that will require surgery to fix. Please be careful. Call your surgeon's office and ask if they have a support group & consider attending the next meeting. Are you near New Orleans? I could come get you & we can go together.

Everyone doesn't have to be so mean or sarcastic to the op. If her profile is correct, she's 19 years old.... I know I didn't know everything at 19, and I think it's brave of her to post her questions on here. In posting again in food and Nutrition, she was following the advice of a veteran poster on her last thread.

In any case, rmma1000: The main thing you need to realize is that by eating ramen, you are not only hurting your chances at weight loss, but you could possibly do damage to your sleeve as well. Definitely not something you want to risk. If you didn't get specific post-op diet instructions from your surgeon, then you can certainly search these forums for good information. As the others have said, Protein first, then veggies as you can fit them in. Check out some of the recipe forums for ideas, and be careful!

Thank u for standing by my side :) I appreciate your advice as well.

Yeah 19 hit home for me!!! My daughter and son are 19 and 20. If they were going through this I would hope someone would help them. It's not easy for anyone. Especially at this age.

How do you get to someone's age in their profile??? I still can't see where you figured out she's only 19..... Teach me Obi One.

Ha! You just click on her profile (clicking on the little picture works) and it's right there on the first page.

Can't see any of that on the app with iPhone or iPad. Lots of us use the mobile app and can't see any of the profile info. So we never know unless someone else puts it out there. Wish they would fix it so we could see more info on the app.

A surgeon suggested chewing and spitting??

Mine said point break...DON'T DO THAT! She said our natural instinct was to swallow what we put in our mouths (no jokes guys!). She said it is not worth it also to keep the cravings or pattern of putting bad things in our mouths.

Edited: point blank...

I think this thread should be shown to the mom who wants to take her 14 yr old to Mx for VSG.

At 19 we are still learning, growing, and maturing... Especially through trial and error.

I don't think people are trying to be mean. This exact question was asked in another post with nearly identical answers. I know I answered and my first concern was the swelling causing damage to the sleeve. I think most people are wondering if it is for real since there were many concerned, appropriate responses. So a second post with the same thing, hoping for different answers seems a bit suspicious.

To the OP - please throw all that stuff out so you won't be tempted before you hurt yourself. Because you managed it once without harm, doesn't mean it's a free pass. You can literally die from these poor choices. If you can't control it, you may need to see a therapist who can help you with deeper issues causing you to behave in potentially damaging ways.

Wish you the best with this. Please listen to your doctor and the people on here who want only to be supportive.

I know that but I'm really lost I can't seem to know how to adjust

It might be good to try to find a support group in your area

I didn't read the entire thread. But you cannot buy "uncooked ramem" They are not only carbs, but they are FRIED carbs. They do not swell, and will not expand in your stomach, but they are crap food. I have a side dish that I make that serves 15 people, made of raw cabbage, green onions, homemade dressing and it's topped with toasted almonds, and a single pack of crushed unboiled ramens. It's popular, and I used to make it for all kinds of occasions, until I got the nutrition facts on my fave popular dish. Now I do everything but the ramens, and guess what, people love it just the same. I just wanted to clarify that ramens are not raw noodles, but they are total crap "food". I have found that my craving for Pasta can be tamed with Shirataki noodles. I rinse them with very hot Water, and make a yummy chicken, "pasta salad". http://lowcarbdiets.about.com/od/products/p/shiratakinoodle.htm
