I'm 6 weeks out of surgery and doing fine. What kind of nuts would be good to snack on? I like pistachios, peanuts, cashews, sunflower seeds, and sometimes smoked almonds. I know peanuts and beef Jerky are go-to's for some but what about the others? Thank You, Timmo

I eat all of those (except almonds but that's b/c I'm afraid for my teeth). I also like pumpkin seeds.

I am five months out and eating nuts of all kinds. Almonds are a chore to chew, though. I am finding that even unsalted nuts are a slider food, though. They are like potato chips to me. An ounce of nuts can quickly turn in to a cup of nuts, so I freeze them now to make them a little less accessable.

My NUT recommends almonds -- because they are so much harder to chew, it's hard to put more than 1-2 in your mouth at a time and you have to chew forever.

Chew, Chew, Chew and remember nuts are great sources of Protein but can be high calorie so do so in small quantities. I love nuts too. Almonds are harder to chew, that is true so I like the slivered ones. Watch out though, I had to wait to eat some as my first time was a reject.

Cocoa roasted almonds! I can count out 24 of them for 160 calories, and eat them on the way home from work, after I have finished my afternoon Protein Shake. I avoid salty nuts because they make me thirsty, which doesn't work with my tiny tummy!

      Currently waiting on a surgery date. Hope to hear soon. I have been fighting for the sleeve surgery for 10 years. I am so ready!

        I haven't pooped in a weed and I'd love a 4 pound poo right now lol

      2. ms.sss

        Lol, yeah, I've been known to drop 3-ish lbs after a good (and long awaited) poop.

        .....or even after a moderate to severe dumping episode. yikes.

      I met with my surgeon on Friday.. I've completed all my tests and all my nutrition meetings as well as meeting the weight loss requirements for my insurance. We are officially submitting to insurance for approval and I was given a surgery date of January 16th 2020 (13 days before my birthday!) Fingers crossed all goes through

      Ok, now im getting old...my body gets me up at my normal 5am dog walk even when it's the weekend, vacation, and most importantly when I'm sick. So now that I have more energy, my body wants to make sure I suffer even longer during the day when I have a cold! Damn being healthy again! (:D)
