Did your tastes change after surgery?



Recommended Posts

I have a friend who's had the sleeve and she said her tastes have changed. She didn't like sweets prior to surgery but now she does.

I've also read that could happen. What has been your experience? Thanks!

Mine was the opposite. No interest in candy now...and hardly any interest in fruit or salad (I used to eat salad like a hippo would)...however, I think that this is more a result of eating pretty much only Protein for a couple of years. On the other side...I will kill for anything salty!

Nope. No change. I just keep very controlled in terms of intake... liquid, Protein, veggies. I can't trust my head with simple carbs... ONE is both not quite enough and far too much as well...

Only taste that has changed is that I use to love tea, but now I just don't like the taste. It has a metallic taste now (to me).

My tastes have definitely changed! Some things I used to LOVE I cant stand the thought, look, or smell of! Ive gotten so used to low/no calorie sweeteners I cant stand how sweet regular sugar is. No desire for sweets, cakes, candy ect. I didnt really like seafood before, now thats all i really eat, shrimp, tilapia, salmon. Its so weird....

My tastes changed temporarily. In the first few months after surgery, many of the things I used to love were nauseating to even think about. Other foods that I hated I started really liking. After about six months though, most of my old likes and dislikes returned. It was bizarre.

I've had some changes. I used to love coconut, now I don't really care for it very much. I used to prefer vanilla or strawberry to chocolate, now I prefer chocolate. Didn't used to like eggs, now I love them. Overall I think I generally prefer savory foods to sweet now, and I used to have a major sweet tooth and would eat candy and Cookies all day if/when I could. But the biggest change is just not needing or wanting to eat all the time, or to eat non-healthy foods.

I'm not too far out, but the only difference I've noticed is sweet things taste MUCH sweeter than they used to. I think they gave me regular Jell-O at the hospital and I could NOT choke it down. It just tasted way too sweet.

Very changed! I used to like sweets and now, not so much, even chocolate. I also never liked fish much and now I like it a lot, especially tuna salad, which I never ate before. I lost my interest in coffee. I really like savory and salty things now. Don't even care for wine like I did before.

      I am now 10 days post op and I am down 16lbs. I had an allergic reaction to the glue my doctor used so I am still sore and trying to keep moving to not get stiff.

      Hello,  I am brand new on here. 
      The doctor qualified me yesterday for the surgery, so now I have to take 12 weeks of education classes and then he said they will schedule the surgery 4-6 weeks after I complete the classes. 
      I am excited to start this new journey.

      Am at the half-way mark of the six month pre-op program.  So excited!  Got clearance from psychologist this morning, so I scheduled my surgery consult for early March.  It is becoming more real now.  Have lost 18 pounds so far, since I began this journey on 12/18/19.

      So months ago, the Kid thought it would be funny to create an account on here and troll me with it.  Figured out it was her a few days later, and had a laugh about it.  She's been trolling me on it ever since.
      This morning I went on to post something and realized after the fact that I posted using her account as she was on my laptop last night 🙄
      Trolling over, Kid.
