strange fish question



Recommended Posts

I've never developed any cravings for any flavors post-op.

But my tastes in foods have changed.

I now love broccoli, cauliflower, and brussel sprouts.

My old fast food favorites just don't taste that good anymore. (happy dance!) :-)

Bass is good. Baked in parchment paper some herbs and veggies. Also seafood. Prawns scallops mussels. You could make chicken paella with seafood added..... Yummy

I love fish! Salmon is one of my favorites, but I also like flounder. The best thing to do is research how to cook it. Fish shouldn't "smell" like fish.. it really shouldn't smell at all. Smelly fish is old fish. Try to buy fresh caught wild fish, and not farm raised. And really research how to cook it. Most fish is terrible if its overcooked. Salmon shouldn't be cooked all the way through.

Glad you enjoyed the cod! I better there are many other types of fish you'll end up enjoying too! People here have given pretty good suggestions for mild types of fish. I'll just add:

Salmon, imo, is a really good fish and extremely healthy too with so many Omega 3s in it. As someone mentioned above, BE CAREFUL not to overcook it. Overcooked salmon is gross. It should be cooked slightly past raw. When I make it at home, I sprinkle dill on and really enjoy that.

If you're ever concerned about a fishy taste, I understand you can soak fish in milk to reduce the fishiness.

Enjoy your fish! :)

We eat fish several times a week. I prefer salmon, halibut, or catfish... simply cooked. I just put a teaspoon of good olive oil in a non-stick fry pan, saute a few scallions, chopped, and a couple of cloves of garlic, minced. 30 seconds of saute, then in go the fillets. Cook about 6 minutes per inch of thickness, don't overcook. Salmon is cooked the most rare, catfish is cooked until the flesh is soft -- if a fork is resisted, cook it some more. A dash of fresh lime -- salt and pepper --- ahhhh....

My tastes did not change with WLS... but no beer etc due to carbonation increasing the pouch size, I do miss beer...

      Today I said I’m an XS or size 8 (Aust) at a clothing store. I never thought I’d say those words and say them with confidence. And when I commented a dress was too big on me I was told it was the smallest size. As was the belt I wanted. 
       
      I tried on a slim fitting singlet dress yesterday & was shocked to realise the lumpy bits on the dress were my hip bones. I have an hour glass shape so I always had hips but never ones that stuck out on the front of my body! 

      I’ve been a size 10 before - for about 5 minutes. While I am now confident about saying I’m an 8, clothes shopping is all still a bit freaky for me. It’s not that I’m focussed on the size on the label. I’m well aware the cut/line of the clothes and the designer’s style will dictate what size I need or if it will suit my body shape. The size is the starting point & it’s starting at an 8/XS/38 which is a big mind set change. It’s thinking a pair of pants will be too small & discovering they are almost too big. 

      While I’m still coming to terms with my actual new body shape and size, I’m very happy to be in this new reality.

        ...ah! I see you are from Brisbane! We lived there for a year when Mr. got a work contract there.

        I have fond (and not-so-fond, lol) memories of the weather there this time of year. It it crazy hot yet?

      Meal replacement shakes are soooooo good when you have a sore throat and don't feel good enough to cook. Plus, I always have lots of them at home. So I'm not tempted to grab crap from McDonalds (which has the best cold "medication").

      This morning I had an abdominal ultra sound because apparently my cholesterol keeps rising.
      I don’t get it. My cholesterol was always fine & now when I eat less of everything & have lost weight it starts to go up.

      My intake of fats & oils has decreased (not that I was a big fried food person before anyway) & not just because I eat way less. Always cut the fat of meats, still don’t eat bacon, use spray olive oil instead of regular oil. Even the tub of butter in my fridge has been there since before May. Lol.
      I just don’t get it? Is it because I don’t eat anywhere near the amount of vegetables I ate before? It surely can’t be because I eat a piece of cheese every day which I didn’t before? Are all my hormones screwed up? 
      Sigh!

        Cholesterol seems to be odd that way. I've got a suuuuper skinny brother-in-law who has sky high cholesterol. So don't let the whole "overweight" thing fool you. They seem to find it in people who have the genetic predispositions for it nowadays it seems. Our bodies are really still a mystery of how they react to certain changes. Just keep at it and keep talking to your doctor. Who knows, you could be a medical mystery?!? Embrace the challenge.

        Think of it this way, you now have an excuse to try ostrich meat! http://safariostrich.co.za/2016/06/ostrich-meat-benefits/

        PS. Gah hormones!

        My dietician thinks it may be the regulatory hormones too & that my liver & gall could be having a freak out from the weight loss. It may be causing my low BP too. Hopefully the abdominal ultra sound will show something when I get the results.
        My maternal grandmother had issues which developed in her 70s but she’s the only one. No heart probs, no cholesterol worries in any one else (incl 13 aunts & uncles & my parents) - cancer seems to be our worry - sad face. And they still live into the 80s & 90s.
        Just strange that for 53 yrs my levels have been normal & 6months of weight loss & it’s now high.
        Don’t know about eating ostrich though that could just be burying my head in the sand - tee hee hee.

        PS - My menopausal symptoms are still MRI. Even with a 42.5 degree day (108F) last Friday not a twinge of a hot flush. Best non scale victory ever. Guess you win some hormonal battles but lose others.

        PPS - Wrapping Christmas presents with air con cranked up today even though it’s only 33C. Ho ho ho

      TOMORROW IS MY DAY!
      I am so very excited! My sister is here with me and my son. I am so excited. My anesthesiologist called me tonight to discuss our plans for tomorrow. I am not feeling nervous at all. Just excited for the future!
      I did buy a few bottles of CFpreop which is really suppose to help you stay hydrated. It's pricey but I feel it's worth it. I tried the Watermelon tonight. I have to stop all liquids after midnight and I go into the hospital at 5:30am for check in. My surgery is at 8am.
      SO HAPPY for this journey!
      You can get the CFpreop on Amazon if anyone is interested. It comes in Watermelon and White Grape.
