Pizza that is the ?



Recommended Posts

Yes.

Once you are healed you can eat almost anything you want. The question really will be will you even want to.

I had a few bites of pizza probably at the 5 month mark. Actual real pizza. I didn't really like it the same as before. But I have made some homemade healthier pizza at home and that went ok. I also tried the frozen cpk flatbread Margarita pizza and loaded it with veggies, meat and a bit more cheese. And then ate half of 1 piece.

We had some for dinner last night; we have some every couple months or so - we even had some at our support group meeting last year when the restaurant where we usually met closed without notice and we went to the pizza place around the corner (it's not often we run into a bariatric pizza-feed!). Get a very thin crust pizza or eat the toppings off the crust are popular solutions. During loss when calories were at a premium on the budget, I would occasionally make one at home from a thin corn tortilla crisped up in the oven then topped with the sauce, cheese, meat and veggies.

So yes, you can have pizza in the sleeve world, though like many things from our previous life, it can't be a dietary staple as it may have been in the past.

I'm a little over two months out. I've had very thin crust pizza (St. Louis Style!!!) I wanted it, I had it, I did not enjoy it. I felt fine after...no ill effects, but it didn't satisfy me in anyway. No reason for me to consider it going forward.

Yeah that's the thing about thin crust. It breaks down like crackers. I could probably eat 1/2 a thin crust pizza easy. Toppings off no restriction and thin crust doesn't either.

So the only pizza I eat is the pizza I make. When I go out for pizza with friends I get a chicken caesar salad. chicken is dense Protein and more satisfying.

I had pizza at 4 months out. I love pizza and I eat it probably at least once a week.

But you know what- I can only eat one slice.

Don't beat yourself up over a slice of pizza :)

Once your stomach has healed from surgery you will likely be able to eat most foods, though hopefully in much smaller quantities (as a result of the surgery) and less frequently (as a result of wanting the surgery to be as successful as possible). About three months after having the VSG I was craving a slice of thin crust pizza from Whole Foods, and so I bought it. I had less than half that night, and then the rest over two more meals because I kept getting fully quickly. Over time I was able to eat more, but fortunately even 15 months post-op still am satisfied with far less than I would have been prior to surgery. The last time I had pizza was in November when I was visiting family in Florida and the rain was so fierce we decided on delivery rather than getting out into it. I had two small slices, and was content. For me, having things I enjoy in reasonable portions sparingly has helped me to avoid feeling deprived and binge-eating. I definitely wouldn't try eating pizza or anything of that nature early out, though. Give your body ample time to recover, and your mind enough time to change how you approach eating.

I have not tried these being only 5 weeks post op, BUT my wife bought these little ultra thin protien pizza crust at HyVee. They are about 7" around and have 110 calories 9 carbs and 16 protien. You get 3 of them for $4 I think. My 2 kids age 7 and 9 both ate a whole one so they can't be that bad.

Golden Home is the brand name.

        It will be interesting to watch as this theory develops. Thanks for posting!

      Feel like it's time for a status update, I haven't been on here regularly in a while and I need to keep my mindset focused on my goals.
      I haven't weighed myself in ~ 3 weeks.  I think I'm becoming the opposite of "obsessive" about tracking my progress and it could cause me some issues.  The good thing is that there have still been quite a number of NSV's happening that is telling me that I'm still progressing without knowing what the scale says.
      First one is that a belt I bought about 5 weeks ago because all my other belts were too big is also on the last hole so I'll have to buy yet another belt again.  second, I bought new jeans about a month ago and I have a lot more slack in the waist than I did when I purchased them.  I also boarded a plane and had about 8 inches of slack in the belt.  Finally, I hit my goal last week of being able to ride go-carts with my kids.  The last time I tried about 4 years ago, I had to leave because I couldn't fit in the harness.  This was sweet victory and I showed those two how it was done on the race course!!  😈

      I just looked through all my old pants after my pre-op pants started getting to big. Keep in mind that I wear men's pants (usually cargos) because I am so tall 5'10"/5'11" ish. I also find that men's baggies tend to fit me better.
      I started out at a 44 in waist pant and quickly found that I was back down to my 42's. So even when thise got to be too big, I had to start pulling old clothes out of storage. After finding my 38's, I thought that these would not yet fit, but when I tried them on, they fit perfectly. I also found some older pants that now fit better than I remembered. What a relief! It's not like I can pop down to the store like I could do in the US and the styles here in Sweden are all skinnt jeans which I cant stand. I also found some 36's, but I'm not mentally ready to try those on yet. The biggest challenge will be buying women's clothing again.

      slow and steady wins the race.  don't get discouraged and just keep at it. Let your sleeve do its job and try not to stress yourself out.
      hope you are all having a great summer and enjoying what your sleeve has given you.
      just got back from a wedding in OR. and man am i afraid to get on the scale

        Great reminder about how fast you can lose weight. The mind games we play with ourselves are the worst.
