Eating nuts after surgery



Recommended Posts

Is it okay to eat nuts post op? I’ve transitioned to everything else fine, but I didn’t want to try nuts until I heard from you all..

How far post op are you? What op did you have?

I'm eating almonds at 7 weeks post-op, been eating them since transitioning to solid foods. Having no problems.

My surgeon has fish and nuts in the same stage (4). I’ve spent 2-5 days on each stage as instructed. I’m 3 weeks post op and will be trying nuts this week. My requirements are a lot different than most though from what I’ve read. If you are questioning you can always call your surgeon.

I eat nuts fine but not often because they have a lot of calories and are something I've overeaten in the past.

We stayed at Secrets Capri Riviera Cancun (long name - lol). It was fantastic!! And the room even had a scale which I loved having! I weigh myself every day (I KNOW you aren’t supposed to but I do) so being able to do that while I was away was great for me! Enjoy your trip! Where are I staying??

I always carry a bag of almonds with me as long as I only take a small handful. I can’t eat to many and I sometimes can feel them going down, otherwise I’ve done ok with them. I didn’t start eating then till about 2 months post op.

Just started nuts and I'm almost 2 months post op. I haven't had any problems with them and it's been great.

I was told at my one month appointment that I could eat them. I eat them regularly but only a few at a time or a tummy ache.

I eat a 1/4 cup of mixed nuts daily as part of my mid day snack. I started after six months post surgery. No problems so far.

I eat nuts just fine. Chew chew chew, and take is slow. So far so good for me.

        It will be interesting to watch as this theory develops. Thanks for posting!

      Feel like it's time for a status update, I haven't been on here regularly in a while and I need to keep my mindset focused on my goals.
      I haven't weighed myself in ~ 3 weeks.  I think I'm becoming the opposite of "obsessive" about tracking my progress and it could cause me some issues.  The good thing is that there have still been quite a number of NSV's happening that is telling me that I'm still progressing without knowing what the scale says.
      First one is that a belt I bought about 5 weeks ago because all my other belts were too big is also on the last hole so I'll have to buy yet another belt again.  second, I bought new jeans about a month ago and I have a lot more slack in the waist than I did when I purchased them.  I also boarded a plane and had about 8 inches of slack in the belt.  Finally, I hit my goal last week of being able to ride go-carts with my kids.  The last time I tried about 4 years ago, I had to leave because I couldn't fit in the harness.  This was sweet victory and I showed those two how it was done on the race course!!  😈

      I just looked through all my old pants after my pre-op pants started getting to big. Keep in mind that I wear men's pants (usually cargos) because I am so tall 5'10"/5'11" ish. I also find that men's baggies tend to fit me better.
      I started out at a 44 in waist pant and quickly found that I was back down to my 42's. So even when thise got to be too big, I had to start pulling old clothes out of storage. After finding my 38's, I thought that these would not yet fit, but when I tried them on, they fit perfectly. I also found some older pants that now fit better than I remembered. What a relief! It's not like I can pop down to the store like I could do in the US and the styles here in Sweden are all skinnt jeans which I cant stand. I also found some 36's, but I'm not mentally ready to try those on yet. The biggest challenge will be buying women's clothing again.

      slow and steady wins the race.  don't get discouraged and just keep at it. Let your sleeve do its job and try not to stress yourself out.
      hope you are all having a great summer and enjoying what your sleeve has given you.
      just got back from a wedding in OR. and man am i afraid to get on the scale

        Great reminder about how fast you can lose weight. The mind games we play with ourselves are the worst.
