Eating...not really...



Recommended Posts

Hello,

I am 6 weeks post op and should be able to eat small meals per last meeting. I take maybe 3 bites and feel like I am going to get sick. Only thing I can really be ok with is shakes ( tired of!) And pudding. Anyone else has this happen and will it stop? Thanks!

Not time to worry yet. Six weeks is kind of an average, some people handle solids sooner, some later. Some doctors don't even ok solids until 8 weeks. I have found that getting Soup or something else in the savory realm helped a lot. Since it wasn't sweet, my brain was willing to recognize it as a "meal". Soups aren't particulary high in Protein by themselves, but once they're heated you can stir in 1/2 scoop of unflavored Protein Powder to up the protein content. Don't add the powder before you heat them up, though. The soup will get all clumpy! YUK!

oatmeal alone is not ideal, but adding plain protien powder to that is acceptable like described earlier like soup.....as it was told to me...it's just like eating a protien bar....

Try adding a packet of high Protein Bone Broth to soups/stews to add protein to savory meals.

      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".

      I can now buy clothes in normal stores again. Admittedly the first time when I started trying on clothes, I really had to keep myself calm. Normally trying on clothes causes me to become SOOO depressed that it take weeks just to get over it. Now, I have to keep myself from not wanting to buy everything!
