Help is this normal?!



Recommended Posts

I was sleeved April 2nd and have been on soft foods for 5 days. But have now started to feel like Im hungry all day..like every 2 or 3 hours!!! I do try to eat proteine when this happens like rolled up lunch meat, cheese ect...and I am staying under 800 calories I am between 500 and 700 but I still feel like it is to much!!!! Is this normal????

Also I dont eat much other than proteine like veggies is this ok or do I really need to start craming in veggies?

You may be having reflux which can mimic hunger pangs. Are you on meds for reflux? If not call your Dr and ask about it and tell them what is going on. Everyone's program is different but I think lunch meat isn't a good idea. Try drinking a Protein Shake and see if that helps with the hunger. 800 cals is fine.

I agree with Chelenka - talk to your doctor. I would try replacing your lunch meat with Protein shakes, or do soft foods like fish... egg whites, or unsweetened apple sauce w/added Protein. good luck!

Most of us have been given meal plans to follow and I was on soft, pureed foods and shakes at 4 weeks, and no meats and cheese until about 6 weeks. Do you have a diet you are supposed to follow? I do not see how you could be cramming in anything (as you said), because you should be eating slowly, such as 1/4 to 1/2 cup of soft food, such as 1 boiled egg. Some people have different plans than this however. You should not be so hungry. Please call your NUT and get help with what you are supposed to be eating. Good luck!

Chiming in here too regarding the lunch meat. In general it has too much salt. Salt on my throat burns as it's tender from reflux. You might try upping the Water, reducing anything with salt and using a liquid antacid to make sure you aren't feeling an irritation and thinking its hunger.

I was permitted deli meats starting in week 3. I had no issues with it.

However, the hunger is a bit unusual, as once you start eating dense Protein, you should really feel your restriction. I think the reflux theory is a good one. Are you on some kind of acid reducer.

Though, I will tell you, at that point, I was hungry every few hours. I could not eat enough to keep me full for long.
