Lettuce, tomato, etc.



Recommended Posts

I know it's way early, but when was everyone here able to start eating lettuce tomatoes and other raw salad veggies after gastric bypass?

Same for me! (around six weeks)

My surgery was 6/13/18 and when I went for a follow-up on 7/26/18 they said I could begin lettuce and Tomato. I'm still very careful with any raw veggies and don't eat them often. They don't always feel great.

I was able to do soft lettuce (baby greens) at one month post-op; most vegetables at 3 months post-op.

I’m 18 months out from surgery and raw veggies are iffy. They fill me up with just a few pieces and feel stuck. I used to eat salads 4-5 days a week but rarely now.

I was told no raw veggies until 3 months out ...that’s when I get to regular foods.

      I have to say, even more than 2 years out, it is so much easier to be good when your busy and so easy to go wrong when your bored.  Crappy weather and the wife is sick so i feel trapped in this house and i have to really watch myself.  At least the holiday leftovers are gone.
      Going to get out this week even if for only a few hours, maybe go see  Ford vs Ferrari that looks real good.
      Ok, whining over, I hope everyone is doing well and had a good thanksgiving.

        I hear ya. I notice the only time I ever "feel like eating" when I'm not actually hungry is when I'm watching TV for too long.

      Well yesterday I went bra shopping. Again. I could put pleats in the cups of the new ones I’d bought just three months ago so it was back to the department store. Foolishly I wore a dress so spent an hour in the fitting room wearing only my knickers as two fitters (yes it took two of them) ran back & forth with different bras to try. Those full length mirrors & fluorescent lights are super unflattering on the loose skin. Yikes! 
      Of course I’m between cup sizes & deflated at the top so only two of the most expensive brands around would fit me. At least a couple I bought were on sale.  Sigh. 
      So I’ve gone from a 18F to a 14F to now a 10FF/G.  At least I’m in two hook bras again and not the clumsy three & four hook ones. They are soooo much prettier (all lacy & fine mesh - ooh la la). 
      I really need to buy new knickers too - those old size 16 boy legs are like loose legged shorts now - but I’m just not sure what size. Plus after buying the new bras I can’t afford to buy knickers yet lol!
