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?

      Today I had my first post surgery update. I haven't eaten anything other than the occasional popsicle and my daily protein shakes in 2 weeks. I have lost 30lbs in those 2 weeks. The doctor is happy. I am starting to see changes I have no more swelling in my legs after sitting at my work desk all day. I don't get to eat an egg till next week. I have my total carb and protein counts so when I can start eating I know how much I can have. My surgeon / doctor has been great thru this whole process. He listens and gives good information about what to expect and what I should be doing. He has an amazing team here in Boise. I am glad I went with him to do this life changing process.

      Looking on the bright side: both a loss of 1lb/week and a loss of 4lbs/week are LOSSES.  So long as the trendline is going down, I'm happy.

      Thought I'd give an update.  I'm over half way to my goal, which is awesome, and I've lost over 12 inches in my waist!  The weight isn't coming off as quickly as I had hoped, but I am also not exercising and still not getting even close to the amount of water I should be drinking, so slow weight loss is not all that surprising.  Sometimes I'm just "over it" and try to eat huge portions like I used to, but, thankfully, I feel the restriction of my smaller stomach and can't go crazy.  In general, I'm quite good, just trying to live my life.
      I now have a motivation to start exercising, though... I booked a plane ticket to Germany for the end of September, so this is a good chance to get strong, get hydrated, and reach my weight goal.
