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)

      Today was a really tough day and I turned to food (and a watered down glass of wine). The interesting part was that I felt REALLY full after eating half my go to cheat snack, tortilla chips with cheese. So the GBP is doing its job!

      The only way I can tell that I'm losing weight is from the scale and my clothes "getting bigger".

      I can now buy clothes in normal stores again. Admittedly the first time when I started trying on clothes, I really had to keep myself calm. Normally trying on clothes causes me to become SOOO depressed that it take weeks just to get over it. Now, I have to keep myself from not wanting to buy everything!
