Does peanut butter make anyone else sick???



Recommended Posts

Im officially on soft foods and barely ate today so I thought a tablespoon of Peanut Butter would fill me up and give me a tiny bit of Protein. I’ve felt sick to my stomach ever since. Is peanut butter known to be a bad food for a sleeve? Thanks for any info!

I'm wondering if it's dumping from the sugar? Could also just be that your body doesn't tolerate it like it used to? Someone who has a more concrete answer, please jump in :lol:

Some foods early out simply make you feel gross and you can’t always put your finger on why. I will say I haven’t tolerated Peanut Butter since surgery 7 months ago with no plans to try again soon. It’s not a usual in my recipes so there’s really no reason for me to have it!

Just a good guess but if it is not the sugar component it could be the penunt film You might yet be able to handle the day. Yes there is that enriched Peanut Butter type granules some add to their Protein v shakes and smoothies but it has been defatted. 😯

phone transplanting words in. they are oils and fats, not films and day. You may not tolerate the fatty oil and may not for a while if ever.

Likely really high sugar content may not be a good idea

Peanut Butter made me feel sick too in the early weeks. I'm almost 10 weeks out now and can eat it now but I don't usually have it. I think it might have been the consistency that bothered me.

As others have said, maybe too high in sugar and fat for now. Might be tolerated better in another month or two. Remember that Peanut Butter and nuts in general are really calorie dense. A tablespoon of the standard peanut butter my kids eat is 100 calories. Make sure to include any portion of peanut butter in your calorie total for the day (at 2 months post op my target is 1000 calories).

I couldn't handle regular peanut butter until about 3 months out. But I did use PB2 powder in my shakes and had no problem. The sugar is very little, at 1 gram. It adds 5 grams of Protein per serving, with only 45 calories. Its also low fat compared to regular peanut butter. They have this in chocolate powder as well.

      Hey all! So I went in for my weight management class. I thought that would be my last one but I actually have to wait until the nutritionist clears me. She has to decide if I'm ready. I''m not mad at it. It looks like my surgery will be happening in the summertime. So instead of focusing on the surgery date, I'm putting my energy into losing weight and making sure all these appointments are taken care of. It feels like doing mini quests on a video game before trying to fight the BIG BOSS. I'm not ready for the BIG BOSS yet. haha. Feeling pretty good!

      Finished my 6th and final NUT appointment yesterday.  Everything is done except the psych eval and submittal to insurance.  I did everything required of me including the 100 pages plus of food tracking, I lost 5% of my total weight, and I went to every NUT appointment.  
      Hoping for the best, things seem to be lining up well for me and in the end, I think I will be able to fully have my wife on board with this whole thing.  She says she is, but I know she doesn't think I should do it.  Just like I replied to another post earlier, i'm doing this either way, it's my decision at this point and I know I can get her to come around at some point and maybe even convince her to look into it as well.
      Also, I just started with an APAP machine a couple weeks ago and "holy sh*t" has my quality of life improved greatly so far.  I wish I had looked into this years ago.  I didn't think I had apnea until I had the study done and i stopped breathing an average of 12 times an hour.  That's nuts...

      I'm 13 years out from having weight loss surgery. I would have to say it was the best choice I have ever made. I have been successful BUT now I'm feeling like I'm sliding back and getting comfortable with old eating habits. I absolutely do not want to ever go back to where I came from. I'm just needing support and some pointers to get me focused again. Any one have any thoughts or suggestions. Thank you in advance for any help you can give me.

        I’m new but I wish you luck in getting back on track. Maybe see a nutritionalist first.
