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.

      Im 4 weeks out now and i still get dizzy a lot, i will be doing the most minimalistic things and suddenly have this rush come over me where i feel week and dizzy. Usually not while I'm working out tho. It will happen on the way home from the gym, or in the shower after the gym. It kind of is just annoying at this point... but I'm down 38 pounds from the hospital and i continue to lose weight every day, weather it be .1 pound or 5 pounds in a day progress is progress. It has also been tough because it is summer and it is the summer before my senior year, i want to be out with my friends and go to parties that they are having but for the first two weeks i was kept at my parents side and they only let me go to a birthday party last week for the first time, i feel like i haven't seen my friends as much as I'm used to in the summer, and it kinda sucks, but at the end of the day it was my choice and i hope i made the right one. Im type excited to go back to band camp physically ready, and mentally motivated to push my self more than before. Im excited to do the 3 laps around the band field and not be 5 minutes behind everyone else. I am excited to lose more weight before band starts and i can wear my new boujee workout gear. I am excited to see if anybody notices my weight loss and if it affects my social life once school starts.

      My Body Image Issues:
      07/20/18 Friday
      I am writing this because it seems like no matter how hard I do love myself and have confidence it's like it's hard to believe the words I say and also my old eating disorder/OCD mind tends to take over sometimes and before I know it I'm counting EVERY food that I eat and feeling very fat/freaking out. I'm trying to do my affirmations everyday and fix myself up nice to make myself feel better but it seems like nothing makes me feel better and I go back to either these bad thoughts or I want to self harm to heal myself or randomly yell at people. I get no stress release from my frustrations thus I become even more OCD spend and have other  bad addictions besides OCD'ing on the food I eat like overly exercise until my feet really blister or hurt or over spend on items I think I need to feel a void. I'm tired of putting myself through the ringer but it feels like nothing is never ever enough for me and I'm always searching for answers in the wrong places.

      Summer heat has been debilitating to taking frequent walks. My future success depends on amping up exercise. So happy to see others achieving remarkable weight loss

      I am struggling right now.  I am working out 4.5 hours a week and it hasn't felt good for the last 2 weeks.  Feels more like a chore and I don't know why.  I am still going but it has been a fight. Corresponding to this I have also been wanting to eat - eat everything we aren't supposed to eat. I have held back for the most part but I have splurged - full sugar vanilla pudding cup, I had a chocolate chip cookie and tortillas. I even stopped tracking my food. I am back on track, but I feel really down right now. I am already seeing someone, and it helps, but wow I am not feeling like myself. I am hoping this is a passing phase. I don't want these feelings to continue. Sigh...
