Post-Op Food Consumption/'Stuck' feeling



Recommended Posts

I get this also and I realize I have been eating too fast my entire life. It takes real concentration and effort to slow down for me.

I've also learned that I can;t eat a meal at work for lunch. It just takes too long. So I am using Soup or a Protein Shake then.

Ya work lunch is an issue. I would spend about an hour eating my lunch with colleagues, then take it back to my desk and keep at it for another hour (give or take) at my desk.

I’ll be on the other side in a week but my doctor suggests that you eat what you can within 30 minutes & be done. That keeps potential grazing in check. Consider adding unflavored Protein to what you’re eating & he also explains that some people can’t tolerate meat after surgery. Try some diff ways to prepare to maybe keep juicy .... Sous vide? Just a suggestion

If I did this, I would be eating basically nothing!

I think that’s the difference though about being in the weight loss phase vs maintenance.

During the weight loss phase I would eat until I was full, and that was the end of my meal. During maintenance I have to eat longer and more frequently in order to consume enough calories to meet my BMR

This is very true.

During weight loss, I would also eat until I was full (or finished my portioned meal, whichever came first), but it still took me waaaaaay longer than 30 minutes to do either.

      Having another blah food day today.  My lunch has been sitting here with me for almost two hours and all I've managed to eat was maybe 1/2 oz of grilled chicken and 2 cucumber slices.  Eff it, I'm done.

      This video is an excerpt from the same, larger video. In this video, I pull out only the Food Addiction portion. Its such an important revelation for me and it may help someone else, thus I think it warrants its own video. 🙂
