I am currently 2 weeks post op and in the puréed stage. My coworkers want to take a break and walk to smoothie King this afternoon. Has anyone tried their smoothies before? I’m wondering if it is safe and won’t cause dumping. Any advice or suggestions?

I’m 2 weeks and 1 day post op. I am on full liquids for 3 weeks (ends on 4/16/18[emoji4]. I had Smoothie King 3 days ago, and I didn’t have any issues. I got the green tea matcha smoothie w/banana & sweetener alternative ( not sugar). A 20 oz drink was around 182 calories. They have some options (not a lot) where you can have the skinny option. I want to add that I did not drink my drink w/a straw, but with a spoon...& I took my time. Review the options on the skinny menu ( I reviewed online)before you try it. Good luck!

The Gladiator strawberry or vanilla with raspberries or blueberries is only 265 calories, 15g carbs, 8g sugar with 45g Protein.

I have a smoothie from Smoothie King every morning! They have 3 different Protein smoothies that are OK to have. They are the Vanilla, chocolate, and strawberry Gladiators. They have 45 grams of protein, with less than 5 carbs. I will add low carb/calorie fruits and veggies to mine as well.

How long does it take you to drink a 20-ounce smoothie from there? I've only been to a Smoothie King once (right after my last pre-op appointment), but I'd be worried it would get all melted and gross before I could drink it all.

I drink it over an hour and a half. I am the same way about it if it were to get melted and it never does. There is just something about a smoothie from there versus one I can make at home. It stays nice and cold, and thick. No Water rising to the top, no nasty Protein taste.

I'll have to try it again next time I go to Springfield.

There’s one around but I’ve never been. I checked out the menu and some stuff looks good but I’m afraid of the sugar. I’ll probably try them further out.

I only get the gladiators and for a small, it’s like 3 grams of sugar. 45 grams of Protein. I have one every morning. Usually get the strawberry with spinach. Even when i get the chocolate and add 1 serving of banana (which is equivalent to an ice cream scoop) the sugar added is natural sugar form the fruit, not added processed sugar. I’ve never dumped or felt bad after drinking it. And the Protein Powder is the best. No weird after taste.

      Looks like I need people around to complete a 10K.  I tried to do one by myself this afternoon and I gave up at around the 7km mark.  Gonna try again on Friday, but I may have to look into joining a running club...

      My Surgeon asked me a question the other day and i didn't give it a lot of thought at the time.
      He asked "do you tell"
      we were talking about peoples reaction to seeing me since i lost such a large amount of me.
      I answered that i do tell if they ask but that it seems most everyone is afraid to mention it if they haven't seen me in a while or they decided they already know the answer so they don't need the truth from me (we all know those types)
      I have had exactly one family friend come right out and ask me how i lost so much weight this year and i told her i had Gastric Sleeve.
      I am sure family has passed it around to other family (you have that type family don't you? or is it just me)  
      So that left me wondering "do you tell" and i dont mean right at surgery time. more like a year or so down the road do you say how or do you just say cut out the sugar and carbs and WAALAA
      Its a real personal choice to open yourself up to that kind of criticism and we know all about how we took the "Easy" way and yada yada yada.
      hope everyone is having a great week

        If people ask, I am open about it

        I'm about 10 months post op, and my standard answer is I eat way less and exercise way more (oh, and I cut the carbs by a lot). The only people I told were Mr., the Kid, BFF and my Mom.

        People know cuz my sissies have big mouths. And when skinny peeps ask out of morbid curiousity and they are "related" somehow to me, I look at em and arch my eyebrow and smile like, WTF? Then I just shrug and say, "I can neither confirm nor deny." (I've practiced this in the mirror many times. LOL!)

        But today, I was talking to a lady in my oncologist's office and she said "Oh don't you love you Surgeon X - bariatric surgeon? I'm in her weigh loss program!" And so I really opened up to her and talked frankly about the program and the surgery and details and how I'm so much happier and healthier, etc. So there has to be a real genuine need and desire for comraderie--otherwise, "Bye Felicia..."
