What about meat?



Recommended Posts

I will be banded on Friday. The surgeon answered a question I had about PBing. He mentioned that "chicken" and bread may be bad choices.

Am I going to be able to eat meat? I know chew chew chew chew then chew chew chew.... But then can I eat meat? ?

I am finally on solids... i am almost two weeks postop... I had a 3 ounce piece of ribeye steak last night. I had no problems. Just chew really REALLY well, and take it slow. I had a very small salad with it. No problems

I can eat any red meat. Fish is great too. chicken seems to be a hit or miss for me most the time and pork- lets just say pork is not a friend of mine, I stay away from that. Just take it slow when your ready and see how you do.

Fish for me is great, steak and chicken breast no longer go down after my last fill.

But I've found an incredible substitute. chicken thighs boiled...remove the skin and chop the meat into little tiny pieces. Top with a bit of picante sauce and a splash of fat free ranch dressing...yummy! Just like a chicken enchilada without the tortilla (which doesn't go down BTW) :D

      Hey October Surgery friends...how are you doing? I've lost 15 lbs since surgery on 18th.42 lbs overall. Wearing clothes that feel great. Had a bout of cold and stomach flu and still having some nausea off and on after that but getting better, I think. 
      Seems like I fill up and have minor pain quicker when I eat hot foods rather than cold. Anyone else notice this?
      Still sooo glad I did this.

        I had surgery Oct 29. Lost 35#. Plateau now. But seeing what clothes fit now is encouraging.

        My surgery was 10/19. #40 down since surgeon pre op visit. Getting close to end of soft foods. I think only issue going to regular foods is portion size. So far trying a new food every day. With no issues.
