How Many Of You Are Drinking While Eating?



Recommended Posts

Ok, so how many of you little post ops are drinking liquids with your meals or immediately after? Show of hands please? How is it affecting your satiety?

If you're doing that--stop those shenanigans right now! There can be only one Highlander! That is the path to WLS perdition and you are driving the bus!

(*shakes finger at self...drivin' the bus to hell...*) 😯:rolleyes::57_cry::blush:

Just gave myself a stern talking to and I'm grounded for a week.

No way! It makes feel terrible!

If I need to take a pill with food, I do so before.

Nope, not me. I might "sip" some Water if I feel the need to wash something down, but I am definitely not drinking while eating.

Makes things not want to stay down for me. At most, I swish a sip after I am finished just to rinse.

I’m guilty of not leaving 30 mins between finishing a drink and starting a meal 😬

That's one rule I stick to pretty religiously.

The only exception would be if I need to take medications with food. I'll drink just enough to get the meds down, then that's it. Even that little bit makes me feel uncomfortably full/bloated, so I guess that's probably a good thing.

I’m working my way down from a regain. I slipped into a number of bad habits - including drinking while eating. It basically leaves you with very little restriction, it washes the food down and you can eat a lot more. This is likely more an issue for those a bit further along since their surgery, but let me give you all a cautionary warning!

I am more than a year out and no way could I drink while I eat. Makes me very sick if I forget and try to drink less than 30 minutes after eating.

I know that bypass folks are able to do it with no problem. Different story for sleevers.

Why do you think bypass folks can do it with no problem? That just makes no sense![emoji39] we are also instructed never to drink while eating and to wait at least 30 minutes after eating to drink. Also not to drink right before eating...

Sleevers still have pyloric valve intact by passers do not. The pyloric valve is what stops liquid from flowing straight through.

My post above is also the reason that we see many bypassers posting about being able to drink normally after surgery.

famous saying here- just because you can, doesn’t mean that you should. None of us should be drinking with meals.

So then it is easier for food to get washed through for bypassers, and hence we can't drink while eating or the food will just flow through with the liquid, enabling us to overeat. Right? That's the point of not drinking while eating.
