Today.. I decided to try something i probably shouldn't have.. but have been wanting and didnt have time to make my self LOL.. So.. here goes.. Pizza.. It was cheese only and thin crust.. I took about 3 bites.. and i was done. I did not dump, get sick, but felt super full super fast... and to be honest it didnt even taste as good and i remember from before surgery.. So.. I am calling this.. did, done, gone.. no desire to have again LOL

I don't think it's going to kill you. It's still within the portion size we're supposed to have and still within the daily allotment of calories. No worries.

It’s amazing how once we start giving these bodies the high quality fuel they deserve they balk at the crap we used to feed them on a consistent basis. I made one of families favorite potatoe recipes for Easter and thought I’d try just a “bit” at dinner last night . I was feeling awful the rest of the night . Full on case of the foamies and that’s only the 2nd time that’s happened to me. First time was right after back on full foods and I over did it . I agree, it didn’t taste near as good as I built it up in my head and no where near the price I paid .

I tried eating pizza a couple of times in the past 8 months (literally.. I think 3 times). We used to eat pizza 3x a month, at least. The last time I ate an extremely thin slice very, very slowly and I still felt horrible after. Stomach pain, headache, nausea. I think it's the dense bread. I can eat crackers (in small quantities) but eating a whole roll or bun, or a sandwich, or slice of garlic bread makes me feel ill. I just don't even try anymore.

Probably better off that way, bread used to be one of my downfalls, especially homemade or Italian. Now I don't eat any, quite a change, but you know, I'm not tempted anymore.

You need to recognize the 'want' of these foods, not saying never, but just don't partake - it leads to head games, you must take care here and honor the beginning process as THE ONLY TIME you will have to maximize the skills and the losses you will need to sustain your success down the road. It changes.

You can just about ingest anything and everything right now in a small quantity and lose, false sense of security and success.

Go watch Dr Duc Vuong on youtube, watch one every day for reinforcing the rules.

I've had pizza a couple times since surgery (usually not even a full slice), but it is definitely not as satisfying and doesn't taste as good as before.

I've tried a handful of things- bites here and there. It is a blessing and a curse that my stomach seems to tolerate everything wonderfully.
