Why Can't I Eat Salad!



Recommended Posts

I'm about 3 months post op and my tummy WILL NOT tolerate salad in any form! I miss it so much....get so sick of dense food and long for something with some crunch! Veggies are a no go as well (even cooked). Antibody else have this issue? Any suggestions? Thx!

I'm right there with you. Frankensleeve didn't like most vegetables - especially fibrous stuff like lettuce. I believe it was around 5 months before the growling stopped, when I tried to eat things like lettuce, squash and green Beans. I thought it was very ironic that processed foods were the things that went down the easiest with my new stomach. :rolleyes:

Aw man I love my salads and vegetables!

I'm sorry that you can at least have cooked veggies! Have you tried very vet steamed broccoli or mashed cauliflower?

it's still iffy for me when I eat salad or raw veggies--especially lettuce...I try to minimize lettuce salads, even though I love salads, because it will sometimes go right through me, if you know what I mean

My dr said no salad until 4 mos so I haven't even tried. Fresh smooth salsa goes down great! So does guacamole (evil grin)

      Donated 50 lbs of Jeans and another 30lbs of shirts to Salvation Army. 
      Had to go buy some new clothes that I used to hate, but now kind of like. Trying not to buy too many though as I know in a few months I'll be donating them as well.

      Hello everyone! I just joined the forum today. Had my surgery almost 3 months ago and lost about 44 pounds. Most of the weight was lost within the first month, and my weight loss slowed down almost to a stop. I became very frustrated. Talked with my dietitian several times, and it turns out I haven't been eating enough. Who knew! I was eating around 500 calories a day, and exercising daily. Well, I had to up my intake to 800 to 1,000 calories. I'll see what happens.
