Hi All!

Am I the only one who is confused about the lack of veggies on my post-op diet? Have you incorporated veggies back into your life? I actually find myself missing salad! Most of my diet is taken up by trying to get enough Protein. Is that right?

I lived 6 weeks without salad after surgery on the advice of my nutritionist...

But now...i'm making up for lost time:)

Love, love, love me a salad. I chop everything up fine for the most part, and chew really well...but God it's good to eat crunchy veggies again:)

Lettuce in salad still gives me trouble, but cucumbers, green pepper strips, etc are fine. I have not tried raw broccoli or anything like that. Stir-fry veggies work great. I can only eat a few bites, I alternate 3 bites of meat, 1 veggie bite....

I'm in the pureed phase and I do 1oz of Protein with 1oz of veggies and top up my protein using protein water/shakes. x

I was not able to eat raw veggies for two months after surgery now I eat salads with veggies and some chicken in it, I also have been making up time with veggies.

I'm not cleared for raw. I'm on a soft diet - phase 3 and am 4 weeks + 1 day. :)

I eat 2oz Protein + 1oz veggies at each meal (3 meals + 1 snack + 1st brekky which is protein coffee)

I can NOT wait for raw veggies and salads! I miss them long time mister!

You will be allowed veggies as you progress out from surgery

      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".
