Hello all,

I made the mistake of trying to eat some veggies last night and it felt like someone was blowing my pouch up like a balloon. I was about to head to the ER when the gas passed via burps and settled down. So with that, what are safe veggies to try? Which ones cause way too much gas? Will salads cause this gas pressure? Lastly, what are your favorite ways to cook your veggies?

Thank you!

I wasn't cleared for raw veggies or certain other very fibrous veggies until like 6 weeks post op. I was on puree's only for the first full month post op. Now however, no issues with any veggies. I'm a steamed or raw veggie guy personally.

      Today was a really tough day and I turned to food (and a watered down glass of wine). The interesting part was that I felt REALLY full after eating half my go to cheat snack, tortilla chips with cheese. So the GBP is doing its job!

      The only way I can tell that I'm losing weight is from the scale and my clothes "getting bigger".

      I can now buy clothes in normal stores again. Admittedly the first time when I started trying on clothes, I really had to keep myself calm. Normally trying on clothes causes me to become SOOO depressed that it take weeks just to get over it. Now, I have to keep myself from not wanting to buy everything!
