I am a little over 3 months post RNY; what kind of whole grains can I eat? I am fearful, though, of the extra carbs. Any tips and suggestions would be helpful and appreciated.

I don't know if there's any difference with whole grains between RNY and the sleeve. But whole grains are good for you. They're complex carbs. They break down slow and your body processes them differently than simple carbs, they have Fiber, Protein, etc. My doc/nut encourage eating complex carbs...of which I do. Hasn't played any negative part in my weight loss journey either. Many of the whole grains have protein in them too, if that's an issue you may have thought of. Quinoa, Amaranth, Lentils, etc. These are great grains to eat. When in doubt, ask your nut.

My NUT allows us two whole grain servings daily. I eat Whole grain crackers and breads (toasted). I've had some Farro which is an ancient whole grain with high Protein. And every now and again I eat popcorn. Eating whole grains and fruits has not affected my weight loss. I'm still losing about 10 pounds a month.

I wish I could eat whole grains. Well, I suppose I do in the form of oatmeal, and occasionally lentils, but otherwise there are no whole grain products in Japan (they love simple carbs here). There is brown rice, but my digestive system can't handle it, along with other grains like barley and bulgur (that was pre-op due to gastrointestinal issues I've had my whole life). I'm going home this summer for a couple of weeks so I'll try some then and see how they affect me.

Pretty much any lower carb high fiber, decent amount of Protein whole grain food is ok. Just know it will fill you up after 2 or 3 bites so always eat your protein first. Unless im really craving a quesadilla or something i skip starches all together. I can eat them i just don't want to, it's to heavy for me.

      I can now buy clothes in normal stores again. Admittedly the first time when I started trying on clothes, I really had to keep myself calm. Normally trying on clothes causes me to become SOOO depressed that it take weeks just to get over it. Now, I have to keep myself from not wanting to buy everything!

      Hi, congrats on your surgery!  Saw you went to Dr. Pleatman.  I've been between doing the Lap Band and sleeve.  I was suppose to have a consultation with Dr. Pleatman this month.  So far great experience with his office coordinator Carrie (sp?).   Feeling really scared and nervous about getting the sleeve.  If you can share...how was your experience with Dr. Pleatman's office and the surgery?   Thanks!

      I'm not new, I was an active Lapbander from:

      February 6, 2017 Here I am on October 4, 2019 thinking back over my Lapband journey and how I thought I would be banded for life. Unfortunately, I have been sick for some time, and am on medications; and well my weight has constantly slowly increased. I was 225 pounds when I had my Lapband surgery on Dec. 17, 2010. At least my weight hasn't reached 210. I have been fluctuating between 202-206. For that, I'm grateful. I'm just excited to be able to have another tool to assist me with my weight loss journey. I'm not looking forward to the liquid stage, however.
