Craving pizza



Recommended Posts

I think that kind of cheese would come right back up at that stage (I'm assuming you are on purees) If you are allowed to have ricotta cheese I have seen a recipe for a ricotta bake where you mix ricotta with Tomato sauce, maybe that would kill the craving?

Yes, ask your surgeon's team to see how that would fit in at this point. Picking the toppings off of pizza and leaving the crust behind is a classic WLS solution, progression dependent. Soft cheeses like mozzarella were fine the first week in our program (individual tolerance depending...) but not sure how that fits with your program, or how the baked on cheese fits, compared to the raw cheese.

@RickM your answer just rocked my world. I might not be so sad when I see pizza commercials. it’s definitely too soon for me, but what a great idea in a few months.

Cauli-Power pizza is pretty damn good and since the "crust" is vegetables, it's ok to eat! They are expensive considering, but... when you want pizza and can't eat pizza... you can eat cauliflower crust pizza.

I was able to eat pizza. I was able to eat just half of it but it tasted wonderful. It was olive, mushroom and cheese. There is nothing wrong with a slice of pizza now and then.

At 2.5 weeks post op ( now 3) pizza is not on the OPs plan. Telling her its ok is bad advice

Check the ingredients of the cauliflower crust, in my experience many have alternative flours and are actually less healthy for you and are also higher in carbs than regular pizza dough.

Additionally as many have stated pizza this early post op,probably not the best decision, think of your new stomach and the acid that comes with pizza sauce. You could be causing severe damage to your new healing belly

I'm 2 1/2 weeks post-op and I'm craving pizza. Wondering will it be ok to eat the cheese and sauce off a slice of pizza.

What’s the nutritional value of this? Any idea where to find it? Looks DELICIOUS for 2-3 months out.

      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

      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.

        I use benefiber everyday in my water. it is flavorless. On days when I get a little backed up I use Miralax. It works great without any cramping.
