4 weeks post op-best veges to start with



Recommended Posts

Hi all. I’m four weeks since my sleeve on 7/10. I’m technically in the puréed stage for another week. I haven’t been eating veges because I’m not sure which are lower in carbs. Been sticking to chicken tuna egg salad yogurt cottage cheese. Things like that. Can anyone tell me which vegetables are considered the best to eat without risking gaining weight? I know they’re to be eaten after the Protein.

Generally limit ( or omit) the starchy vegetables like:

  • Beets
  • Carrots
  • Corn
  • Green Peas
  • Parsnips
  • Plantain
  • Pumpkin
  • Sweet Potatoes
  • Taro
  • White Potatoes
  • Winter Squash, such as acorn or butternut squash
  • Yams

The same can be said about starchy fruits to avoid:

The most starchy fruits are plantain, banana and dried fruits such as figs, raisins and dried apricots.

Essentially they turn into sugars--which we dont eat a lot of anymore.

      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!
