Anyone else feel guilty eating mashed potatoes in the purée stage? Prior to surgery I was strict keto for 2 years and potatoes were like a deadly sin LOL Next weeks grocery run I think I'll be grabbing some mashed cauliflower...until then, the real thing won’t hurt since the quantity is so small, right? (like 2 tbsp)

some plans allow for it. Lots don't, but some do. Some surgeons want their patients following ultra low-carb diets; others recommend more balanced diets. Mine was one of the latter, but I tended to go lower carb than what his clinic recommended.

My nutritionist said no potatoes at all in any form because they absorb Water and expand in your stomach. I hope that doesn’t mean forever because I dearly love them 😂

Yeah it’s on my list as OK, but I have so much guilt I can’t even deal LOL I think I’ll be avoiding until I get to the store for the alternative 😋

That wouldn’t quite be the same as mashed potatoes, would it?

We aren’t allowed even cream of potato Soup. But I’m a rule follower and I seriously doubt it would make much (if any difference) same with the 2T of mashed potato. There is a huge array of what is allowed based on who your surgeon is

Well pretty close, I have been known in the past to start out with leftover mashed potatoes, add a little cooked onion and celery, milk, or in the old days cream, and YumYum, sometimes even cheese. Full of calories, a former guilty pleasure of mine. But I concede none of that stuff feels as good as thin feels. Down over a hundred pounds since my own surgery 9 months ago- and I didn't lose by breaking rules but following the guidance I was given.
