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.

      I'm trying to give these people all my labs and it's so hard! I had to do number 2 in a bag and send it in for the lab to test it. CHILE! Why did I poop in the container and when I went to drop it off, that part of the hospital was closed?!  Sigh. AWKWARD. I'll drop it off today after work tho. Feeling great!

      Getting a little nervous about post surgery life adaptation. I really want to succeed, but habits are so hard to break.

      Good news and Meh news...
      Meh: so I think I experienced/am experiencing my first stall-ish since surgery and now I get how frustrating it can be!  So annoying to wake up every morning to watch the scale report a gain or loss of the same 1.5 pounds for over 2 weeks.  *sigh*.  Some say put the scale away, but I log my weight every morning to get a daily moving average of my weight.  So long as this moving average is not heading upwards (which it isn’t and hasn’t since post-op) then I am good with my curent “minimalist” weekly weight loss rate, however small I think it is 🙄.
      However.
      The Good news:
      To allow for some self back patting, and to remind myself of the bigger picture, I set a bunch of interim goals/milestones... a few of which are 10lbs increment weight loss goals:
      So this morning, after hovering within 1.5 pounds of an interim goal for over 2 weeks, I weighed in at 164.8, and officially lost 70 lbs!  In 4 months.  That is 30% of my starting body weight.  Or the equivalent of my 10 year old neice. How crazy is that.
      Next Goal: weigh in at 162lbs to be merely overweight (and not obese!)
