Life is great 1month after surgery. Amazing meals



Recommended Posts

Life has changed drastically for me as far as how I eat and what I eat. Here are some of my meals I’ve been eating 1 month out. Life is good 😁 I’m now all about organic /real/ and very clean eating. I refuse to eat processed food with artificial anything. I have great recommendations for very clean vegan Protein Powder and the best liquid Vitamin solution. Send me a note for recommendations.

Wow, you've got a stomach made of steel! I was still on purees/very soft foods 1 month out. Yeah, you!

I’m not sure if I’m lucky or what. I had a lap band for 10 years. My band was a total disaster. It was 10 tears of being bulimic. I had it removed 3 months ago and decided I would need anything. After 30 days I gained 20lbs. I just had my sleeve surgery a month ago and it’s been an amazing thing so far. Great recovery and able to eat what I posted. Couldn’t be happier. I just want people to know there is hope. Believe it or not I’m also able to drink. The only issue is heartburn but Zantac seems to take care of that.

You know, I think some people do. My stomach has had few objections, and it sure has made life easier. Most everything in those pics I could have eaten at one month....with the exception of the egg and the toast. I used to love eggs...they were a huge part of my diet. They just hit me wrong now. I still eat them on occasion, but after half an egg I'm like...bleh. Not sure what that's about, but it's kinda sad. I eat whole grain toast now, but it took 3 months or so until it was comfortable. And corn on the cob is still my longed for Nemesis. LOL

I'm a big supporter of semi vegan diets...so this food looks great to me.

Others will scream OMG, the carbs!!!! They can lump it. There are a lot of ways up the mountain. My nutritionist loves my diet. (I eat mayo Clinic Diet...which resembles Mediterranean or Japanese diet)

To each their own. Glad you found something you can live with that you love:)

In the end...that's a big piece of the puzzle, I think. Really loving your forever diet.

Try switching the whole grain bread for Ezekiel whole grain bread if your not already using it. Its sprouted grain bread.

Looks good to bad I don't like a bunch of veggies. Yes I've tried the ones I don't like a few times and prepared different ways. Avocado squash kale eggplant zucchini nope not happening. Kinda of envious of those who can eat like that lol

@Chariff do you mind sharing more of your meal ideas? I love what I see and hope I can eat these foods because most of the ingredients you shared are ones I love. Are you still doing well at 3.5 months out?

      Hi I  am new here and I am going to have the gastric sleeve next month. I have to pay out of pocket so it is going quite quickly. The longer I wait the more bad stories I hear. I weigh 315 and 61 years old so I have a lot to lose. Any advice is welcome

      Went to my initial consult with the Bariatric surgeon/ program I chose. Came home with a folder full of information & helpful organization of all the testing that needs to be completed while I complete the required nutritional counseling. She also let me know my insurance typically takes 6 weeks to reply with authorization when submitted, so that puts my potential surgery date near the new year if all stays on track  I felt comfortable with her, in our discussions she agrees that I am a good candidate for the Gastric Bypass. I appreciated the 'introduction' class that was given after the consult with the surgeon where I was given this binder of every referral (from her, not my pcp referrals), & contact information for all the testing needed to make my contacts/calls tomorrow morning even easier I start my nutrition classes on June 5th, so that's when the clock will start toward insurance approval & getting the tool to help me reach my goals

        welcome welcome - 23 lbs pre/post op is great. you are doing fine. keep up the good work. kathy

      Day 5 post-op... didn't sleep great last night, lots of gas pain and it was my first night without using the rx pain meds. I'm tired and feeling rather stupid. My nurse is supposed to call today for a check in, so I'm debating taking a nap now and risk missing her call, or forcing myself to stay awake and pray she calls soon. Also, showering should be considered a workout... just doing the basics used up all my energy. Weight is slowly working its way down. I know that I shouldn't be on the scale yet, but I couldn't resist. I'm down almost 9lb down since surgery. Yay!

        You are allowed to feel tired, take naps and only do the minimum this soon after the surgery. Listen to your body and be good to yourself at this time. Most important things to care about at this time is hydration and protein. It is a full-time job to stay on top of that and prioritize your energy there for now. Just give your body the time to heal and adjust, don’t rush the recovery.
