Food Cravings!



Recommended Posts

Took a nap... and when i woke up I had my TV on the travel channel and there was this thing on about BBQ!! They were comparing BBQ from TX, Kansas City, Memphis, and North Carolina...now, I live in KC, so you know where MY vote is!! Haha. One of my fave BBQ places here is called Oklahoma Joes (I think Joe is from Oklahoma...because they only have KC locations.) ANYWAY, its REALLY good, the sauce (cause in KC its all about sauce!) is good, I like the one they have called "Night of the living BBQ" Its a hot sauce.

And food COMMERCIALS are BAD! I saw a commercial for Heinz 57 Ketsup and then my mouth was watering for burgers and fries. Haha.

- - SO ANYWAY, I now have a HUGE craving for BBQ... And I've been wanting mexican for a few days... Anyone else having specific food cravings??

i am having cravings too and i am in a panic state over it. I want chinese food really bad. I have seen from so many people that they cannot eat rice or anything starchy or carbs after they are filled. I am being filled on July 9th. I cannot wait until my fill but it is also scaring me over the foods I will not be able to eat. I know this was a good choice for me and I really need to lose all the weight. I know be banded is the best thing for me. I already eat alot less than I used to eat. Because I am not filled yet we had pizza tonight. I had only one slice that took a long time to eat and I was filled. I used to eat 3 or 4 slices without a problem in the same amount of time.

Suzzzie I have also seen that Heinz commercial. The food does look really good.

I get the cravings, too, and yes weekends are not too great!!!! I'm the main cook in the family, so it's hard. I was banded 6-12-07-- When I get the cravings I tell myself I've come this far, so I'm not going to screw it up. My hubby & I quit smoking New Year's Eve, 2005 and when those cravings would creep up, that's what we told ourselves -- we've come this far, so we're not going to screw it up!!!!!!! Of course, that's why I need to lose weight now -- oh well.

I did buy two of the cookbooks that are for after weight-loss surgery. This past week I've cooked some things from them and I must say, they taste fantastic. You'd never know they're good for you and low in carbs & calories!

Try the cookbooks -- 1) recipes for Life After Weight-Loss Surgery by Margaret M. Furtado and Lynette Schultz

and 2) Eating Well After Weight Loss Surgery by Patt Levine and Michele Bontempo-Saray

They have recipes for all meals, snack, sweets, Soups, drinks -- you name it. What I've had so far has been excellent. I found the books on Amazon.< /p>

Has anyone seen that show on the Travel Channel with Andrew Zimmern? he travels all over the world and eats weird things that most of us wouldn't touch with a ten foot pole. Anyway, if TV is giving you cravings, then watch this show! You will never want to eat again!

I used to watch The Barefoot Contessa every day. I LOVE Ina Garten. Now I won't go near it. I don't want to see whatever delicious things she is making.

On the pre-op very restricted liquid diet I CRAVED a hot dog. It was soo bad that after they gave me Oxycotin and some other loopy stuff prior to surgery, I described how it had to be a footlong hot dog with that nasty paste like chili, red onions, stone ground mustard, cheese, and with some sour cream. And now that I've been banded and still can't eat anything for a while, guess what they are having for dinner tonight? HOT DOGS! Oh well.

Lol. As I was getting off of work tonight and the next shift was coming in - they had bags of food. I asked what they were having and they told me hot dogs with all the trimmings! They has sour krout, ketsup, mustard, relish, cheese, chili, etc... I about fell over! NEVER has a freaking hotdog sounded so good!

Suzzzie,

I love BBQ and yes I have been having cravings. Especially on the 4th of July.

I used to live in KCMO. I kind of remember a good BBQ place off of Hwy 70, but I can't remember the name. It sure wasn't fancy but I remember it tasted good. (smoke stack??, smoke house??)

I'm awful, I sit and watch the food channel ALL DAY. My family thinks I'm crazy but since the surgery I've cooked them a few "food channel" meals. They should be happy.

Rhonda...everyone is different and tolerates foods differently. I can't do bread, but I CAN do rice! So there is hope! Maybe you'll be able to, too! Plus, the good thing about Chinese is the chicken is moist. I cannot tolerate chicken any other way.....uggggggh!

Cheers,

Toni

I hate Protein foods but crave carbs. I've been so compliant with the eating rules for 5 weeks (and my program's rules seem stricter than many) but last night I ate a one-pound bag of pretzel sticks dipped in hummus. More accurately, I chewed each bite and then spit it out. It took hours! I hope that I didn't gross out anyone. I don't have my first fill for 8 more days. I hope that I got it out of my system......

      WOW by the Grace of God 17 years ago I went to Mexico and had a lap band put on for weight loss and my waist was 64 inches and That’s more than 5 foot around and 18 stone  my weight was 375 pounds. Today I went shopping for not sweats and I succeeded. I found pants and a shirt at an awesome price at Burlington by the way. But the real story here is, today. My waist is 45 inches and my weight is 260. Both incredible numbers but think about this. My waist is almost 20 inches smaller around Wow that’s a brain wrecker.  Still, I love my band  I even celebrate it’s birthday 10-26-06 FYI-it’s kind of like choking yourself, and never letting go. And trying to eat. lol Life is good

      Hi all! I’m Heidi, a Canadian ex-Pat living in Sydney, Australia. I’m doing this surgery because my mom died 10 years ago from obesity, she lived her own 600lbs life.  So at 116kg, it’s time to make sure my daughters don’t lose their mom to obesity.
