Can we eat certain foods post op



Recommended Posts

Hello, so I know that this is bad but I'm wondering if post-op after a few months if I wanted to try the keto diet, can we have meats such as sausage, pastrami, steak? Obvioulsy that won't be my entire diet it'll be mixed in with lots of non starchy vegetables but wanted to know if those meats were allowed.

Sure. There will be little you CAN'T eat. The question is always gonna be "SHOULD" you eat it?

I do a lower fat version of low carb. After my bypass surgery, I have a hard time with very fatty meals/foods. Steak does just fine with me. Love it. I can handle about 2oz of sausage if it isn't greasy and about 1oz of salami, but have to be careful with the cheese cuz it not only stops me up, but makes me hurl.

Why on earth would you do the Keto diet after surgery? It’s terribly restrictive and you’ll struggle with dehydration and risk dumping because of the high fat.

Good luck with your diet choice. I don't think there are any restrictions down the line post-op, but your food tolerances and tastes might change. Right now I'm 8 weeks post-op and can't do steak or pork yet --- too dense for me and my body doesn't like it.

There isn't anything you CAN'T eat but there is going to be stuff that your body won't let you eat. I can't do breads and milks. For awhile I couldn't even do chicken but now it's tolerating chicken.

Be very mindful of everything you buy. If it's in a packet out a box is most likely processed so keep an eye on the label for any added sugar or carbs!!
