Question - Does anyone have issues w/ condiments?



Recommended Posts

I've been reviewing what I ate yesterday that may have contributed to my dumbing episode. The only thing that I ate differently from days past is a small dip of ketchup. Does anyone else have issues w/ Condiments? Are there specific ones that I should avoid?

Well ketchup does have sugar in it, not quite certain of the%, been years I made my own. Had a primary care tell me not to use it for that reason,said mustard would be better on sandwiches and such. Just like commercial salad dressings contain hidden sugars, better also to make EVOO and lemon juice or a vinegar for on your salads.
Hope everything is better for you now Twism44 and maybe it will never repeat itself.

This is a tough question to answer, because we don't know what you dipped into that ketchup. Was it a fry? If so... it was more than likely the grease than the ketchup. Ketchup can have a decent amount of sugar in it, but if it really was just a "dip" then the odds of that being the cause are small (not impossible, just, reduced).

When did the "dumping" happen? Around / within 30 mins after to ingestion is typically sugar, upwards of 3 hours later, is typically fat. These can vary greatly however, just basic "guidelines".

What did you eat in addition to the ketchup?

I dipped a grilled wing in ketchup. The dumping happened about 3 hours after I ate the chicken. I'm thinking it was the fat rather than the ketchup. Gotta make smarter decisions.

Agreed, sounds like the chicken. Might not be a problem forever though, just now given your surgery was less than a month ago.

ketchup has about 4g of sugar in a serving... so not too terribly high, but it is fairly acidic. chicken can also be tough to digest at first, because if it’s dry and stringy, it’s hard to chew it enough..

      I'm struggling a little. My younger sister wants to go out to a buffet for Thanksgiving so no one has to cook and stress. While I appreciate her sentiment, I also don't want to pay $65 a head (4 ppl in my family) especially since I can't eat much AND buffets are so difficult to deal with overeating. I told my sister after thinking about it that buffets aren't okay for me. She seemed to understand, but was disappointed. Am I being selfish by not going along with the plan? I purchased a turkey to cook and I can make sides that are bariatric friendly. Sigh, this one is bothering me. I might be emotionally low right now because my dog passed away recently and that is contributing to my thinking.

        Sorry about your pup. That's a real grief you need to allow yourself to express.

        So $65 for each person is hefty. We couldn't afford that for TG for 4. But buffets don't freak me. I wouldn't even pay--just sneak a bite or two off a plate here or there. No biggie. But doing a restaurant or keeping food simple is also what works for most.

        Sorry you're having a tough time about the upcoming holiday. Remember, our joy will mostly be with being with those we love.

        So sorry about the dog. It is so hard when they pass.

        Yes, that $65 is super steep. You'd really be paying $260 for 3 people to eat and you to watch. Yikes! And I'm sure they wouldn't let you in without paying. Maybe just beg your sis to put it off until next year when you might be able to enjoy it too? I mean, honestly, you've already got the darn turkey. You're still a work in progress and you sure don't want to throw up in the restaurant. Maybe thinking about it that way will help your sister understand. By next Thanksgiving, you'll be far more sure of what you can handle and what you can't.

        Good luck.

      One Week Post Op today! I feel great and almost walking back to normal. I have learned in this short week to not drink your dinner protein shake at a constant sipping. I spent 30 min the last two nights trying to release the pressure in my chest. Lesson Learned! I am back down to Surgery Date Weight as of this morning, actually half a pound less. Now to look forward to actual losses LOL. I guess i had a lot of gas and liquids that are taking time to leave my body. Its all good, it will be gone eventually! I have no regrets, and take each day as it comes and look forward to the next stage next Thursday, and getting my stitches out on Tuesday.
