Foods you cant have again



Recommended Posts

What foods can't you have again after the sleeve? I've heard grapes because of the skins. What other and why please.

I truly don't believe there are any in the long term. Even the grape skins aren't a problem after you heal despite what some say. I am 9 months post op and can eat anything I choose to, the key is not to choose to eat some things.

I think it is a good idea to differentiate between foods you "can't" eat post VGS, and foods that don't agree with you or you choose not to eat. As for the "Can't" list (from my doctor and nutritionist) 1) Anything with carbonation (soda, beer, champagne) 2) Alcohol for the first year post surgery 3) Chewing gum (concerned that if you swallow the gum it will block the stomach). That was it on the "must not ever eat again list".

I am 3 months post surgery and have only had one food "disagree" with me. That was a chicken and apple sausage. I felt yucky, and my stomach was upset, but it wasn't a horrible experience, I just wouldn't choose to eat it again.

Then there are the foods that I don't eat anymore - this is purely my choice! I try to avoid most simple carbs - white rice, bread, Pasta. I am ok with the whole grain versions, but getting all that Protein in my meals doesn't leave a lot of room for simple carbs, veggies and fruits. I'm eating about 1100 calories a day and losing 2 pounds per week. If I truely crave a food, I will have a mouthful, and then the craving is done and over with.

As for a prohibition on grapes, maybe in the first 2 months, but after that if you chew it well, it should be fine. I hope this helps.

According to my surgeon the only thing I could never have again was sugar! I think I have to take that advice with a grain of salt, so to speak.

I'm 7 months post op and there is nothing that I cannot tolerate, or that makes me more uncomfortable than the other. I can eat absolutely anything with no negative reaction.

Grapes are kind of hard to eat and make me cramp a little but I can easily tolerate about 7 grapes. As far as others foods I don't have a problem with anything. I eat everything in moderation.

I'm three years out and last night I had boiled shrimp for dinner. HUGE mistake, those little suckers sat in my chest and stomach for hours, I felt like I was going to burst, I had the slimes, and even this morning I still feel a little blechh.

I eat popcorn just not a lot! Think it differs from person to person. Sometimes I can eat things with sugar and sometimes I can't. Shrimp is hard for me. But just know your limits. And I've had alcohol and gum I'm grown haven't swallowed it lol

coffee makes me sick as a dog!

what are the "slimes"?

Basically when you eat something that doesn't agree with you, it will cause some esophagus upset. You will get a mouth full of "slime" it's a mucus that the body produces to coat and protect the esophagus, and help prevent damage. They are more common with the lapband, I'm a former band patient. I have only had the "slimes" once since my sleeve. I ate 3 French fries, and I thought it was going to kill me. I was sick, with slimes, and throwing up for several hours. I will NEVER eat fries again.

I actually had the slimes while in the hospital. I was there for two extra days because nothing agreed with me. On the morning of the fifth day it all cleared up and I was able to go home. Since then I had it happen only once more and it was shortly after coming home.

popcorn goes down easy, so I guess it's a slider, but it also sticks and stays and makes me feel very full for a very long time so ...

        I haven't pooped in a weed and I'd love a 4 pound poo right now lol

      2. ms.sss

        Lol, yeah, I've been known to drop 3-ish lbs after a good (and long awaited) poop.

        .....or even after a moderate to severe dumping episode. yikes.
