Food Before and After Photos



Recommended Posts

Like weight loss before and after photos but of your new diet !

I'm especially interested in before and after meal photos (take a pic at the point you feel restriction) but it can be of recipe substitutions, your refrigerator/pantry/shopping cart/etc

@Tealael Great idea!! Since I have not had my surgery yet I am going to start taking pics of what and how much I am eating now so that when I have a stall I can look back on how much I used to eat versus post-op, that way I won't be so hard on myself. You're the best!!

Brilliant, T.

We definitely need more fun, original, and helpful threads. I'm making an attempt to get something helpful started (the mini WL dictionary/glossary*), and now you've come up with this fun AND helpful idea.

I'd also be interested in seeing typical meals with honest serving portions (pre-surgery, even before the ALL-LIQUID pre-diet). The subsequent photo(s) could be a typical meal(s) AFTER surgery (post-healing). There might be some significant time lapse between the photos. The BEFORE photos could be honest re-creations meant to show one's previous unhealthy food choices and less-than-ideal serving portions. Tip: Place a familiar object (edible or non-edible) on or near the plate so we can get a reasonable sense of scale.

Yes I really like the glossary idea and people working together

Salmon (pouched or canned) mayo, spices(sweet curry powder, red curry powder, onion and garlic powder, pepper,salt, anything else you like)! Enjoy!!!

I will be using this recipe but instead of salmon will be trying it with chicken. Unfortunately I am not a fan of seafood. But it does sound delicious. Will be adding to this thread once i'm out of liquid stage.

Thanx

You can add to the topic in the liquid phase too!

ie How much you can drink in 15 mins, 30 mins etc.

People wonder if they are drinking too much too fast all of the time.

Also Protein Shake recipes if you find good ones!

Its always Amazing -from the pureed stage all the way to regular foods, its a staple for me because its no cook and so quick , mostly just prep work ready in 5 mins:

Salmon (pouched or canned) mayo, spices(sweet curry powder, red curry powder, onion and garlic powder, pepper,salt, anything else you like)! Enjoy!!!

Thanks for this great recipe! I bought several cans of salmon but wasn't sure how to dress it up. This will be a great lunch today!

      I've hit a stall 9 months out. I'm not worried, though. My fitness levels continue to improve and I have nearly accomplished my pre-surgery goal of learning to scuba dive! One dive left to complete to get my PADI card 🐠
      I was able to go for a 10K/6mile hike in the mountains two days ago just for the fun of it. In the before days, I might have attempted this, but it would have taken me 7 or 8 hours to complete and I would have been exhausted and in pain for the next two days. Taking my time with breaks for snacks and water, I was finished with my wee jaunt in only 4 hours 😎 and really got to enjoy photographing some insects, fungi, and turtles.
      Just for fun last week, I ran two 5Ks in two days, something I would have never done in the past! Next goal is a 10K before the end of this month.

      Hi everyone, I wrote back in May about having no strength. I still get totally exhausted just walking from room to room, it’s so bad I’m using a walker with wheels of all things. I had the gastric sleeve Jan. 24th. I’m doing exactly what the programs says, except protein shakes. I have different meats and protein bars daily, including vitamins daily. I do drink my fluids as well.  I go in for IV hydration 4 days a week and feel ok just til evening.  So far as of Jan 1st I’ve dropped 76 lbs. I just want to enjoy the weight lose. Any suggestions or has anyone else gone thru this??  Doctor says just increase calorie intake, still the same.

      Losing my hair in clumps and still dealing with "stomach" issues from gallbladder removal surgery. On the positive side I'm doing better about meeting protein and water goals and taking my vitamins, so yay? 🤷‍♀️
