How do I know I’m full?



Recommended Posts

I’m 2 weeks post op from gastric bypass? My NUT told me I’d probably only be able to eat 2 bites?!? I’m eating more than that. How do I know I’m full? I don’t want to screw up this whole process 😥

If you don't have a signal (I never did until it was too late) try to never eat past the recommended amount for your stage example

1/8cup, 1/4cup, etc...

Better safe than sorry

Safe Journey

I don’t know either until it’s too late (5 weeks out) so I stick to the recommended amounts (1/4-1/2 c)

I don't necessarily feel full either. However, we shouldn't be aiming for full. You don't want to stretch anything. We should be aiming for satisfied. I don't really feel anything. So as suggested, I measure my food and only eat that. The times I think nbn I feel full, the feeling is in my chest. I'm happy because I don't have a gratifying feeling from eating anymore. I have an "I ate" feeling.

I’ve never had a full feeling that’s why I was concerned just my NUT said 2 bites of course I wasn’t thinking her two bites and mine weren’t the same lol. I’m using baby spoons.
I’ve started measuring everything and never eat more than a 1/4 of a cup and sometimes stop before that if I get a tight feeling in my chest. Thanks everyone!

      So my surgery anniversary date is on the 24th of this month, but I had my 1-year follow up early with my surgeon this morning (I have another 1-year followup at the hospital on Monday to get my bloodwork and labs done).
      Anyhoo...my surgeon was very pleased with my results (and so where the office staff apparently, because 3 of the front desk ladies came by my exam room to give me props/high fives/generally gawk at me).
      But get this: he asked if I would be willing to come in for a future photoshoot so that I could be on a poster! And I was all, ummmm....no thanks, LOL.

      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".
