I did! First thing I did when I was cleared to puree I went to eat Indian food. They only thing to keep in mind is that you can't drink while you eat so you may need to keep the spice level down to where you can tolerate it without Water.

I did. It's all about what your body will tolerate.

I can not even handle Medium Salsa. Everyone is different. You just have to listen to your body.

I started craving spicy food a few months after surgery, it’s weird my tolerance has gone way up.

So how was your tolerance before the surgery? And what was your first spicy meal?

Sent from my SM-N950U using BariatricPal mobile app

I could tolerate slightly higher than mild prior, maybe a hint of jalapeño and a few red pepper flakes. I can handle much more now and find myself increasing spice when I cook Mexican, Thai or curry. If I were to assign a number on a 1-10 scale; I’d say I was a 3.5 before and now a 6.5.

I don’t recall my first spicy meal, but if I had to guess it would have been lean ground beef (97%) lettuce taco wraps.

my theory is since I eat so little, I want what I’m eating to have a lot of flavor.

edited to add, my new favorite spicy thing are baked ground chicken meatballs made with sambal.

Made Eggplant Parm tonight, yeah the Good Kind, by the time it was done Tomkitten had fallen asleep, my pouch hasn't felt well since last Wednesday, tried to call my Bariatric Clinic , I had been vomiting repeatedly, only to be told I needed Mental Health consulting,still cannot understand why she was taking such a cruel attitude, made me feel like I had gone wacky-woo or something. Seeing my primary care tomorrow afternoon, maybe I need to see our new local gastroenterologist if. those nurses have such a poor opinion of me. I am not making things up and I sure am not making myself vomit for attention. Truthfully I am Tired of not keeping things down. So the whole casserole is going into the fridge now that it is well cooled down. Maybe tomorrow he will eat some.

YMMV, but I had no issue with spicy foods. One of my first pureed meals was refried Beans with cheese and hot sauce.

      Ok I had surgery on Jan 27 2020 so I am 3 weeks out and have lost 32 lbs  I wish I had this done sooner. Now just trying to figure out different things to eat so I am not eating the same thing over and over. I did order some stuff today from the Bariatric Store and that stuff should be here in time for my next phase. I have a goal of 50 lbs by the first of June hope that is attainable. Good luck to every one on this journey

      So went to my surgeon today for one month follow-up. Last time I was there he wanted me to put on 4kgs but oops I’ve lost another 2kgs. Told him it was intended, was trying to maintain, upped my food intake, was stable for almost 3 weeks but last weekend broke it.
      Mum turned 80. Drinks at neighbours, a couple of crackers & dip, home late, no dinner. Out all morning, followed by celebratory family lunch, home late, no dinner. Whole dietary routine out the window. Did have a protein bar & tuna frittata muffin in between but didn’t eat much at all those two days.
      What dumbfounded me was he was ok with it. I told him I didn’t want to put on his 4kg because of the weight gain many experience in the 12+months in maintenance. He agreed with me. What the??? Invasion of the body snatchers??? Totally opposite position from last month. 
      He was also ok with my stopping my multivitamins. Agreed with my thinking that is better to feel ok & eat then be nauseated & not eat. He’ll just monitor my bloods to ensure no problems which is what they do anyway.
      Not complaining.

      Just came from my GPs office. He would want me upping to 1500kcals a day. Have no idea on how I'm gonna do this - a year ago it would been an issue to come _down_ to 1500 kcals 😂
