What Post-Sleeve Rules Do You Break?


134 posts in this topic

For me it's the no carbonation rule. I have always loved seltzer and now all the flavored no-sweetener, no-sugar La Croix varieties are my go to treats. I don't understand why there's a no carbonation rule, and I've read in some places it's a huge no-no and in others that it doesn't matter. I will not go back to diet drinks, I never really liked them anyway. But that flavored seltzer is sometimes the only thing that keeps me at a good Water intake for the day.

Keep in mind I'm 2.5 years out and have been in maintenance for 1 year.

  1. I drink with meals. I don't follow the 30-minute rule.
  2. I've never consumed the recommended 64 ounces of Water a day. On most days I'm lucky to down one 16-ounce bottle of water. Too much water sends me to the toilet every 15 minutes.
  3. I'm a snacker. My favorite Snacks are peanuts, string cheese, turkey sausage, and fruit. Snacking is discouraged in the realm of bariatric surgery.
  4. I don't chew my food 20 times before swallowing.

I have started eating small quantities of sweets- like a scoop of sherbet or 2 chip ahoy Cookies. I track everything I put in my mouth and my dr actually said it's ok as long as I follow Protein first and really limit carbs to 25% or less of my caloric intake.

I'm supposed to be crushing my blood pressure medication, but it just tastes so bad that I can't do it. It's a small pill, and I've had no trouble swallowing it whole with a sip of my Protein Shake in the morning.

I don't chew my food as much as I should. I eat sweets way too often. I'm really bad about taking my Calcium supplements. I sometimes have carbonation but not often.

I'm four years out and carbonation hurts my sleeve. So I guess I'm the reason it's a rule for some!

I drink caffeine but it's fine on my plan.

I'm another one who doesn't do the drinking/eating together thing. I drink while eating not always but frequently.

"Snacking" is fine on my plan as well or I'd have to admit to breaking that one too. Lol.

I should add i maintain at goal too!

I'm 6 months out. These rule breaks I've done all along.

1. No Protein Shakes. Get Protein through foods and drink.

2. Use straws carefully

3. Consume caffeine.

4. Eat more than 4 times a day.

5. Usually don't get over 64oz fluids

6. Drink up to the meal, but not during or after.

7. I eat more than the recommended carbs each day (fruit, Beans, and potatoes).

8. I eat cake and ice cream at birthday parties.. as much as I want (in a single sitting.. not all day).
