I am on puréed foods and I feel full with just a tad over the 2.0 oz. I am drinking my sips of liquid and my eyes still want everything. Is this normal? It is almost four weeks after surgery.

Sounds quite normal. Try to remove the stimuli. I refused to watch commercials In the beginning when I was home recovering because they were all about food.

To further what greentealeal suggested, try NetFlix for a while. No commercials so no food temptations.

My day’s worth of food at work. I had already drank a Protein Soup and ate about a 1/3 of the rice dish I packed.

The rice dish is made of- duxelles, ground beef, way too much kale, a bag of frozen mix vegetables, a random jar of chicken gravy, half a stick of butter and the remnants of a box of instant rice from the back of the cupboard. The kids and my sister topped theirs with cheese but I wasn’t brave enough to try.

I probably won’t the rest of the cucumbers I packed (have eaten 3-4 so far) because one got stuck and gave me the foamies. 😞

Ill post a picture when I get home of what I have left/ate instead as an update.

Edit- added a copy of the total count for everything for the day.

Ended up drinking a Starbucks doubleshot and leaving behind some other stuff after deciding I wasn’t in the mood for citrus fruit. I updated the nutrition info as well.

Smoked flap steak, smoked chicken breast, and smothered broccoli. Husband finished a piece of steak for me. So good!

Okay all... I am new here and I've been going through this thread, so I figure you guys are best to ask. I, too, am a fellow foodie and cook - so I CANNOT wait to be able to start cooking again, trying new recipes and eating actual food. I am about to go into week three after surgery and finally get to have eggs and tuna... maybe a 1/2 piece of toast. So... here's the burning question:

I've read RNY patients should avoid cabbage. As a Scot-Irish American... this makes me sad. However, I see some of you eating Brussels Sprouts.... which I LOVE with some bacon in a pan!!!!

Have any of you had adverse reactions to them? (I already no longer have a Gallbladder since ten years ago... so I know all about dumping syndrome, etc.)

Btw - first thing I am making when I get to have real food is Shakshuka in my new ramekins I just ordered... with a little Truff hot sauce on top!! I cannot wait.

not sure where you read that, but I eat cabbage a lot. I can't think of any reason why RNY patients should avoid it. Maybe early out when you're supposed to avoid raw vegetables (that is, if you eat it raw), but otherwise...???

Welcome!

I am almost 10 months post-op and I eat both cooked and raw cabbage all the time. I can’t tell you when I started eating cabbage post-op, but I really had minimal veg the first couple months due to lack of space, so probably very small amounts around two months.

Please show us your shakshuka when you make it. 😋😊

I early on I had adverse reactions to cabbage. The gas afterwards was bad but also I had chest tightness a few bites in.
I think it just wasn’t cooked well/tender enough. These days I have no problem with cabbage cooked or raw as long as I chew it well.
