What was your favorite food before surgery??



Recommended Posts

My favorite food was Pasta and meatballs and sasuage.. I could eat that every night.. I love pasta prob partly how I put so much weight on..

So tonight for dinner what did my family want?? Pasta and meatballs.. ugh. And bisquits.. so I of course made it for my family. Tasted a bit of my meatballs and some sauce and that was it. And thought if this was before my surgery I prob would have definitely had two big plates of that for dinner ...

What was some of ur down fall foods ???

My downfall was too much food, and some anxiety eating. My favorite foods might still be favorite foods. I have no desire to eat like before, but I refuse to give food the power of being an enemy. I don't want to be 'good' or 'bad'. I liked Pasta, but 'meh' not a super favorite and don't want it now at all. I have had a few bites of foods I like a lot, but nothing overboard. It has to be prime quality or I won't try it - no one wants a casserole lol, no one wants store bought cake with nasty shortening frosting. Be picky, be worth it.

2feelingreat.....have you tried the Protein Pasta? They're made with chickpeas and lentils (and a little wheat, but mostly chickpeas and lentils).

Lots of protein, fewer carbs, might be a good compromise once in a while?

Not sure it's good to fantasize about our favorite unhealthy foods while we're trying to focus on changing our diets! LOL :D

pizza. I’d have it 3-4 days a week with jalapeño Cheetos. It was a nasty habit, and I didn’t quit it until I had to start my pre-op liquid diet!

I have and it's caused me to try all sorts of things like eggplant lasagna. Turns out I don't like eggplant lol.
Next up: pizza with cauliflower crust

What WASNT my favorite food was my problem. My favorite “food” was the buffet line, any buffet will do. That was my downfall.

Why not just have a little spaghetti squash with the sauce and meatball?

Before surgery my fav foods were lasagna, carrot cake, and zaxby's buffaloed blue salad. Hoping i can get the salad again in a few weeks with the grilled chicken and just add the wing sauce.

Shame there isn't a bariatric buffet for us. You,could be issued a disposable teeny,tiny spoon, small plate with curved sides, a tablespoon,and a 1/4 cup measure. I'd call it Babe's Bariteria. Babes cause sometimes in the journey we feel like sitting down and crying. Bariteria well why not for what it is. We could even have Protein clears and shakes in a big bowl,of ice for the early inductees and,pre surgs.What do all you think?

      Work is still stressful and I'm on sick leave for this week because of acute laryngitis (corona tested negative twice). 😷
      I'm surprised that I still get reactions for posts sometimes, even though some of them are quite old now.
      Anyway, hoping people are ok!

      How are you guys how are you all a little bit about me my name is Cici I had my bariatric sleeve on July 27, 2021 and six days postop currently, I have been dealing with a bit of anxiety a little depression and it’s something that no one really talks about.
      I would love followers and to follow more people throughout this journey because I’m pretty much alone I have a freak out at least once every two hours I know I did the right thing but sometimes I feel like I didn’t I also know this too shall pass and by this time next year it won’t be tears of sadness I’ll be having tears of joy so please follow me on my journey and I will do the same😍
      I would love to share some of the things that I have discovered after surgery that no one talks about
