Secound thoughts



Recommended Posts

Well, you still have the choice. You can choose food, or you can choose yourself.

That list you have more than likely outlines foods that people typically can't eat, it doesn't mean that you can't eat those (you shouldn't) but it also doesn't outline foods you might have issues with after surgery.

Speaking of Surgery, which WLS are you going for? Because that changes things to some extent.

But yes, part of getting thinner with WLS, is giving up certain foods forever.

It depends on your surgery, and surgeon. I was sleeved and I have no "forbidden" foods.

I still eat popcorn. No problems.

However, corn on the cob gets stuck and I can't tolerate it. Not sure why?

To be successful, you're going to have to give up a lot of your old eating habits. Sugar, in particular, is a challenge for most. Anything refined. It's hard and it takes a lot of discipline.

You can't go into bariatric surgery thinking the surgery is going to do the heavy lifting long term. It will do its part and help....but ultimately your habits need to change.

People seem shocked when we say....yes, you lose weight through DIETING after surgery. But it's true, it's all about changing your forever diet and your eating habits. The surgery helps, but the dietary changes...the biggest effort... is squarely on you.
