Are we ever aloud to eat popcorn again? I thought I read somewhere no popcorn for VSG patients. If so, why not?

I have no problem with it and was never told I could not have it. Now it is a slider food. I can eat way to much so I keep it to like once every 2 weeks. I did not have it till I was 3 months out.

I've seen on here that popcorn is a slider for people. My paperwork doesn't say anything about it, for or against

I asked my NUT about popcorn. She said not until stage 5 and very sparingly as it is a slider as others have stated. Popcorn is one of my favorite foods. I need to think up some way to enjoy it without getting out of control.

I didn't eat popcorn for months post-surgery. Not because I couldn't have it, but because I was eating so little that I needed to get the maximum nutrition per bite that I could get. It was probably 6 months before I tried popcorn. I remember not being able to finish half the bag, it was months later before Frankensleeve could hold a whole bag of popcorn.

I've had no problems with it. but now, It is a slider food for me. I buy the single serving microwave bags and limit myself to 1 bag - so I know exactly how much I'm eating.

What does "slider food" mean ?

Sliders are foods that go down easy and don't fill you up. Some people also think of them as trigger foods because you can eat a whole lot of them and not get full.

Oh no... I am only 3 days post op and I had a brief craving for popcorn. I am pretty sure it was a craving induced by movie night though.

I just assumed popcorn would be out of my diet for life after the sleeve. I have never been much of a popcorn person. But the butter and salt I enjoy it with are not very good for me.

I am glad I saw this post though as I was unaware of slider foods. I will have to be aware of these later though.

      I hit my stall ALREADY 🤷🏽‍♀️ been at 300 for almost a week. I’m not worried about it though, because I know that my body is healing. I’m not in a rush, I loss 30 pounds since surgery which was 3 weeks ago. I’m just going with the flow and staying positive. 😁

        It's very common. Give your body a chance to "catch up" with its new reality and the weight loss will start again. Hang in there, I know it can be frustrating!

      First Orangetheory class back after surgery! #347 for me. Determined to take things easy- especially those ab exercises. Looking forward to hitting #350 this week.

        Hi, I have been having a look around the site, I cant find anywhere that you can delete your account yourself, However in the rules it indicates that staff can delete accounts so maybe use the "contact us" tab at the very bottom of the page and ask for assistance there.

      I loss 19 pounds my first 7 days post op 🙌🏽 (Water weight or real weight.. weight is weight to me.. I’ll take it lol) I make sure I keep my water with me 24.7 and I walk every chance I get. I cook dinner for my kids with no problems. I have zero cravings!  By next week I should be in the 200’s. Haven’t been there since high school 🥲

        I had my surgery 11/17 and hit 299 this morning! :) Rooting for you!

        Congrats I’m at 289 now. Its a wonderful feeling, right!?

      Well, starting day 2 after surgery. Felling hunger pains again this morning and nausea, no vomiting. I think the hunger pains are coming from my stomach and not my pouch. Think I will call their hotline and speak with them about it. It is not terribly bad but it is uncomfortable. I do not regret getting the surgery though. I expected some discomfort right after, I just didn't expect the hunger pains.
