Huge Appetite...Small Stomach



Recommended Posts

Anyone having difficulty transferring from liquids to solids? I'm 17-days post sleeve surgery and finding it difficult to determine what and how much to eat. My support group only meets once a month. Any suggestions?

1ounce in tiny tiny bites at a time, bite, chew, swallow, wait a couple minutes, another bite, and wait five minutes, try one more bite.

Start with chicken or tuna salad, cottage cheese, maybe scrambled eggs. Refried Beans and a little melted cheese. Solid Protein should be moistened or cooked in soup/broth, etc. Beef can be tough to digest, so try chicken thighs, soft white fish.

Thank you so much. How do you get past the not being able to drink fluids while eating? Sometimes it feels like the good is stuck.

You have to make sure anything you eat is very moist. Soft white fish goes down very easy like haddock or cod. Also, chicken thighs, add some chicken broth to it and it will slide down easier. I lived off cottage cheese and yogurt when i was forst sleeved. Scrambled eggs mamy people eat, but they came right back up for me. Now 9 months out I can get them down sometimes, but not all the time, not sure why. Good luck, just try small bites and youll figure out what works for you, everyone is different .

Which procedure did you have? You have to eat slow and chew a lot. Try not to let food get to dry. As the other poster said add a little brother to meats to keep it moist. Also, the not drinking takes a lot of getting used to. I'm 10 months out and it's still difficult sometimes. Occasionally, I will take a tiny sip of Water when eating. I'm sitting here now watching my watch waiting for 30 minutes to please pass. I ate less than 1/2 cup of well cooked red Beans and a piece of a small wing cooked in the air fryer. I am extremely thirsty but I know I have to wait. It does get a little easier though. Good luck!!!

My favorite transition foods were yogurt (whipped greek), cream of wheat thinned with Protein Drink, oatmeal thinned with Protein drink, sugar free pudding, and blended cream based Soups. After I tolerated those well and could eat about 3 ounces in one sitting, I started adding soft foods.

      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".
