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.

      So my surgery anniversary date is on the 24th of this month, but I had my 1-year follow up early with my surgeon this morning (I have another 1-year followup at the hospital on Monday to get my bloodwork and labs done).
      Anyhoo...my surgeon was very pleased with my results (and so where the office staff apparently, because 3 of the front desk ladies came by my exam room to give me props/high fives/generally gawk at me).
      But get this: he asked if I would be willing to come in for a future photoshoot so that I could be on a poster! And I was all, ummmm....no thanks, LOL.

      Today was a really tough day and I turned to food (and a watered down glass of wine). The interesting part was that I felt REALLY full after eating half my go to cheat snack, tortilla chips with cheese. So the GBP is doing its job!

      The only way I can tell that I'm losing weight is from the scale and my clothes "getting bigger".
