My restrictions were basically no raw veggies, fruits, nuts or seeds for three months and then to slowly introduce all textures. The surgeons nutritionist were pretty adamant that there are no forbidden foods and by doing that you revert to the old yo yo diet mentality. That the goal here was to eat Protein first- 1-3 oz. then veggies 1/2 cup and last carbs. This way you meet your nutritional goals- the restriction helps limit the amount of carbs you take it and it teaches you to eat normally. They did say that if i was incapable of stopping eating certain foods once I was full that i should take note of those and steer clear- not because they were carbs but because I’ve recognized I can eat them in a healthy manner. They were all pretty clear that the goal was to learn to eat in moderation and to allow small amounts of foods that are enjoyed as to avoid bingeing activities later on.
If i were you I would follow your surgeons instructions since they have a designed a program that works for their patients though.
