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.

      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".
