My son introduced me to sushi when I visited him in California a few weeks ago. The first night we went we ordered over $100 in food so I could try a lot of different things (12 different dishes). I had a bite of each, my son who is a big marine ate all the rest. :-) Everything was good and everything sat well. We ate sushi every other night - we ate Mexican the rest of the time. I am now a sushi fan. The place next door to where I work makes it w/brown rice which I prefer. :-)

My surgery was a year ago.

I think you all know that rice is wasted calories. I used to eat a ton of rice, anyway I could get it. But seriously there are better ways to get a fix on this type of food. If you would like a nice substitute that has lots of Protein why not eat Quinoa. It is delicious and there are lots of asian recipes on the net that substitute Quinoa for rice. Not necessarily sushi but a reasonable exchange that could fix your craving. Having Bariatric surgery means making sacrifices that we all know we had to do to be successful. I don't want you all to think I'm a buzzkill but sushi? I have not eaten it since I decided to have surgery.

Sushi and sashimi are the perfect sized meals for me. I can order 1 roll or one order and have a delicious lunch for $5 with leftovers. I do remove some or most of the rice because it causes me to vomit but I love it.

Where do you live that there exists sushi or sashimi for $5?!!!!! I don't know if I'd eat $5 sashimi!

I started sushi maybe 4 months post-op. Funnily enough it was the only rice I could tolerate for several months. Today at 8 months, any rice is okay in small amounts.

We have a few nice Asian restaurants that have lunch specials; 2 rolls and a salad for $10. I go with my local surgery pals and we share.

It's very little food, but I can't even eat an entire roll, so...

I live in New York. I don't think that kind of deal exists near me! Enjoy.

The store near where I work makes sushi w/brown rice. Yum! :-)

Those in my support group tell me I will be able to eat anything after a while. However, we all know that rice, bread and that kind of stuff is a bad choice, leaving the entire decision up to the individual. I look at it this way, until I get to my goal weight and switch to a maintanance diet I will avoid carbos and play by the rules. At that point my eating habits should be well controlled and a bit of rice wont be an issue.

      Losing 1.2kg/2.6lbs in a week seems to be a bit disappointing when in reality it is quite reasonable at about 5kg/11lbs per month. I think that I cant quite remember the last 30kg/65lbs. Oh the mind games we play!

      Yup, I did it! I RAN my SECOND continuous 5K ever this morning! There is an option to do a 10K Sunday morning and I'm going to give it a try. It's basically the 5K twice. Even though this is a girls' trip, I kinda wish Mr. was here so he could witness my awesomeness.
      @FluffyChix, no it wasn't on the beach nor was I wearing a bikini, but I think I should get bonus points anyway, just for doing it a second time 😎

      08/16/19 - weight 149.5 /  bmi 23.5 / bmr 1500 kcals / fat% 16.7% / fat mass 25 lbs
      desired range fat % 11-22 / fat mass 17-38.5 lbs
      just got back from my 2 year check up and wanted to post.  The kcal drop has me worried and thinking i need to up the weights and trim back the cardio. Never saw myself as a person who cared for bulky muscles but the increased calorie burn from more muscle mass certainly wont hurt. 
      New goal for the next year i guess.
