I Was Amazed When I Heard This

What’s the big deal with steak?! I can and do eat steak, pork, brats, chicken, sausage, etc. I have since purée phase.

I also eat fish and shrimp...Can you tolerate seafood? These last few days chicken has not been going well with me, I'll lay off of it for a few days.
I'm almost 2 years out. I have to be very careful with steak. I may take one TINY bite of my hubby's. I never order it for myself. Tried it months ago and felt like I ate a brick. Also, can't do shrimp. No matter how they are prepared. I immediately feel full and nauseated. Potatoes are also a no no. I pretty much live off chicken, cheese and tuna pouches. I also eat plenty of salads. Those are my only real food issues. Well I cant eat holiday food. Especially dressing. It does the brick thing in my stomach as well. Two bites and I tap out. It's the oddest thing though. I can eat sweets and not dump at all. I don't make it a habit of eating sweets. I will occasionally. I'm still trying to figure this new stomach out.

I think we are sooo quick to judge people's choices and then we don't learn from each other, beware of becoming a different type of food cop....

Agree with this!

I am a year and half out and cannot tolerate any meat. I can eat a few shrimp and they stay down ok. I basically live on Protein Shakes, BariatricPal hot cocoa and cottage cheese. 😂

Steak was one of the first things I had once allowed proper solids. Couldn’t manage a whole load but by god I loved it!

No it's just most of us at that time we're on liquids, just starting purees, had tried a little soft,meat or other Protein , had it all come back up, and here's someone chomping away at real meat, and having no one not of difficulty. Its like we were in two different worlds, a little jelly of the situation? Yep, maybe so!

I never had a liquid phase in my diet, only preop for 10 days. Post op after the three days I was at the hospital I started with soft food directly as these was my instructions. When I joined this page I though something was wrong with me but a couple of people replied that they too did not have a liquid phase post op. On my first day back home I had boiled chicken and potato something that I guess some people don’t eat until good 3-4 week after or maybe even later but there I was on day four eating normal soft food as per the program and the diet I was given!
Long story short happy new year guys ! (It is 02:53 here local time !)

I don’t know how to respond on here yet, but want to tell Swanton_Bomb that I had the same experience with feeling like I could easily eat too much food. My nurse told me that my pouch was still healing, and that in a few weeks or months the full feeling would come. And it did! I met others like myself. For me, when I find myself eating slider foods, or eating fast, I visualize the bite I am swallowing scraping along my small intestine doing damage (Gastric Bypass). It always helps me to put on the brakes. I am two years out now.

Thanks for the advice! Thankfully, I definitely feel restriction, and I can only consume a max of 2 oz. of most foods. I just am surprised that I have no problem with chicken, turkey, shrimp, etc. Some foods do sit in my belly like a rock (protein bars and once I made a little Protein pancake, oy, that was heavy) but I can handle most protein just fine. In fact, in my very early stage I found thicker protein like ricotta went down smoother than a shake. Weird.

I, too, have been able to eat steak since early on. I simply have to be sure to chew well and cut the pieces small and I'm good. Every person's tolerances are different, just remember that as each of us are individual so are our experiences.

I was sleeved 10/15 and have had absolutely zero issues. No dumping, no extreme soreness, no sweats.. no complications at all

i eat tons of Protein, steak, pork, chicken, turkey, fish- you name it. I stay as close to zero carbs as I can. I operate on 800-1000 caps a day. But it’s picking I can eat a 6oz steak, but it literally takes 2 days- small bites, chewed well, but my body doesn’t reject it lol

I drink min 120 oz of Water a day. 4 thirty ounce yeti cups over 18 hours. The first week it was hard to get a sippy cup down, but once the swelling subsided, it was game on

This morning I officially lost 100 pounds. (Actually 116). Weight day of surgery was 381, today it is 261. 116 pounds/87 days=1.3 pounds a day and no stalls.

So to those who say the guy was wrong or what ever, it’s his body, his procedure, his ass if it doesn’t work. I’m kind of doing the same thing. So far, I think I have a handle on it.

        Congratulations to her Proud Granny, and wishing her a bright and successful future.

      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

        welcome welcome - 23 lbs pre/post op is great. you are doing fine. keep up the good work. kathy

      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.
