On most plans you're cleared to eat all foods by 13 weeks. If so, just take familiar food as a back up. But if it agrees with your system, there are healthy choices on just about every menu! Enjoy!

Thank you. What are your thoughts on drinking alcohol?

I did drink alcohol early post WLS. My job actually involves a lot of drinking (entertaining customers). But a coupe of months in I decided to stop drinking nearly entirely. It just wasn't worth the added calories. I might eat 500 calries for the day, but then have another 500 calories in alcohol. It just seemed like a waste. I was working too hard and didn't want to undermine my weight loss. So while I doubt it will do you any physical harm, it will most likely negatively impact your weight loss in the short term.

Thank you! I was just thinking maybe having one drink per day of vodka and lite cranberry hopefully that is not to bad. Did your alcohol tolerance change much post surgery?

You probably won't find lite cranberry at a bar. I know some people have suggested ordering vodka with Water and added their own Mio or Crystal Light drops. I think we are all grown ups and we can make our own decisions :) If you want to drink, just be careful about it, and log it. :)

Directly post op everything changes. I would have never been able to drink fast enough to get drunk. I mean I'm sure you could, but straight hard liquor or shots weren't appealing. Once I was past 6 months I could drink pretty normally. I definitely have less tolerance than before. But I don't think it's a magical sleeve effect. I'm nearly half my body weight, and cannot pad my stomach with food. So it follows that I get drunk on less now days.

I had surgery in March last year and went to Vegas that August. Eating was according to plan, I mostly shared with my wife, went to a buffet (it was $5) and had egg whites and a little ham. I only went to that one as it was cheap, otherwise I would not have done the buffet because of the waste of money. Alcohol I hadn't tried yet as i waited for 6 months before having a sip. 👍

I took a two-week cruise two months post-op sleeve and it was easy to watch what I ate by focusing on staying hydrated and making good choices of Protein before anything else. I don't drink, so alcohol wasn't an issue for me. I think you can do this!

      So my surgery anniversary date is on the 24th of this month, but I had my 1-year follow up early with my surgeon this morning (I have another 1-year followup at the hospital on Monday to get my bloodwork and labs done).
      Anyhoo...my surgeon was very pleased with my results (and so where the office staff apparently, because 3 of the front desk ladies came by my exam room to give me props/high fives/generally gawk at me).
      But get this: he asked if I would be willing to come in for a future photoshoot so that I could be on a poster! And I was all, ummmm....no thanks, LOL.

      Today was a really tough day and I turned to food (and a watered down glass of wine). The interesting part was that I felt REALLY full after eating half my go to cheat snack, tortilla chips with cheese. So the GBP is doing its job!

      The only way I can tell that I'm losing weight is from the scale and my clothes "getting bigger".
