so I just want to know how long would I have to wait to eat Pasta or rice? I really want sushi but I am nervous because of the rice. Also I want to be able to have Protein pasta.

Haven't had either in the past year. Hit the goal weight a couple months ago (175lbs.), just had the 1 year anniversary of the VSG. Really liked both rice and Pasta (especially sushi), not to mention bread. Giving them up wasn't easy but the pay off has been worth it.

Might want to try Sashimi, it's wrapped in seaweed instead of rice:

Sashimi -- raw slices* of fresh fish arranged on their own -- is generally left distinct from sushi, which involves rice (and takes its name from the vinegar that flavors that rice). Nigiri, on the other hand, is one of the different types of sushi, which vary most obviously by shape and construction

They are both off the table for me permanently. I just won't take up valuable stomach space, and I limit myself to 20 carbs per day anyway.

Same, 60g+ carbs per serving just seems ridiculous to me especially while trying to lose and help my liver heal. Those carbs may seem healthy but any excess just gets converted to fat anyways.

My NUT had Pasta on my plan since the soft food phase and I was allowed to reintroduce rice at 3 months. She has us keep our carbs below 100 grams so there isn't anything really off the table, but that doesn't mean you have to eat it. I've had rice maybe 2 times and had no issues with digestion or anything. I'm not really a fan of rice but my mom makes the most amazing Red Beans and Rice so I couldn't pass that up on the rare occasion she makes it.

Pasta I think maybe I have had a handful of times since surgery, but not as an entrée. So maybe I will have a couple bites of pasta salad after I eat my protein/veggies. Especially this time of year.

I also love Sushi, my plan is starting at 4 weeks to make sashimi a mainstay in my diet. You might want to try the same.

I'm not even a week post op yet so can't really speak as to when to have it but Wegmans (not sure if you have that grocery store) makes sushi with cauliflower "rice" rather than real rice and it is amazing!

Glad to see you qualified that Pasta with protein! But I'll be honest, both the Protein pasta and rice give me a very uncomfortable feeling even 2+ years out. If you are doing a bunch of cardio during the week, the carbs in the sushi should be fine. But as a staple in your diet would be a very bad idea.

I find it odd that I used to love starchy foods before; bread, potatoes, and rice. I could live off bread and dip of almost any kind. Now I rarely ever think of them. The uncomfortable feeling has ruined those foods to me, and I am totally cool with that now.

It has Protein but also expands in the stomach. I wouldn't do it. I took a bite of a piece of Pasta and it made me very uncomfortable.

I don't plan on reintroducing rice, Pasta, or bread.

Zucchini noodles are a great sub for pasta, and I use riced cauliflower all the time. If I really want a sandwich the low carb wraps will work just fine. I haven't tried them yet post-op, but I used them a lot pre-surgery.

      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.
