Hi all,

Just about 6 weeks out from surgery and I've been having some issues with eating real foods. Not any one thing consistently, but getting the foamies/slimies/vomiting just about every day for the last couple of weeks. And it's gotten me wondering... what are the foods that you all just can't do any longer? And if you're further out from surgery, have you found that you were able to eat them later on?

I totally get that everyone is different, I'm just curious about the experiences of others.

Mine is Simply Cheetos White Cheddar Puffs, I try to stay away . The 2 times I had any I limited me to 4 , well under what is considered a serving, but they are pleasant to my tongue👅and rather seductive! Put them in Tomkitten's room, he accused me of trying to prolong his weight disparage, nope not my thought, I just wanted to put them where they didn't try to get my attention!

Anything too fatty or rich and cheese in more than a tiny bit. :( And I haven't tried it, but I'm sure boiled okra would also fall on that list. It's got to... ;) haha

popcorn, it was like an addiction before I had surgery. I swear I will never eat it again.

Sugar. If I eat something with too much of it, or too much of something with it in it, my heart will race and I will feel pretty icky for a while. Sometimes I may feel nauseous and barf, other times I'll need to poop immediately.

I can foresee popcorn being a problem for me down the road, as I REALLY miss it. I'm going to have to keep it out of the house.

lol... I think fried okra would have given me the foamies long before surgery! Never could tolerate okra at all.

I've only had one go round with dumping syndrome so far, thankfully, and it was triggered by eating too soon after having a Protein Shake. No fun! Otherwise, I haven't been drawn to surgary stuff yet. It's a beast I hope I don't have to face soon.

Can't do fried okra anymore (before or after), but still love my okra and tomatoes. I have to draw the line somewhere though and boiled okra seems to be "it" lol just cuz I detest it sooo...

I honest to God got fat eating skinny pop. I skyrocketed to obese in about 4 months. I hopped on the scale one day, almost fainted then immediately made an appointment and had surgery 5 months later.

I could not tolerate chicken breast until recently, so I ate thighs instead ...Nor steak, it has to be well marbled and like 4 bites. I still can only consume a tiny tiny amount of chocolate anything. After surgery any chocolate Protein Shake or sf chocolate pudding made me throw up, I developed an aversion to that form - I can have a bite of plain dark chocolate but not much. It doesn't call my name any more - which is good.

I don't eat Pasta ever, I have had maybe 2T of rice like 4 times - it feels horrid, swells up makes me want to throw it up. So now I just don't bother. Any bread consumption must be toasted.

But popcorn goes down okay. LOL

I mainly eat eggs, cheese, pork steak, bacon, chicken, fish, shrimp, crab, vegetables, a few berries, yogurt sometimes. I could not tolerate salad for nearly a year - that was tough - lettuce chewed 40 times just slimed and came up. So it was cucumbers, and pepper strips until my body adjusted. I now eat lots of raw greens.

Most "meat" still bothers me.....I don't want to eat it either, so that's a whole other issue. Ground beef is fine but I could never eat meat again and be okay ...except bacon. :) ha....but pork is really bad. I have tried it a few times and I can't find a way to eat it that doesnt make me sick. Steak I can eat filet.....which is what i ate before surgery anyway. chicken is okay but only if it's like a chicken tender - and that isnt healthy sooooo......

It does get easier but it is a process and work.

      OMG! I dreamt of cake!!
      As of late, my dreams have been food obsessed. Last night I dreamed of gorging on good old American sheet cake with chocolate frosting. There was white frosting as well. Good thing we can't get that in Sweden! I just hope that I haven't become too engrossed in food. BUT they are only dreams after all.

        That's wonderful! I have trouble sitting still in the movies now. (I even fidgeted through the last John Wick, and it was awesome) I can't imagine sitting still this soon after surgery. More power to ya! Have fun!

        It will be interesting to watch as this theory develops. Thanks for posting!

      Feel like it's time for a status update, I haven't been on here regularly in a while and I need to keep my mindset focused on my goals.
      I haven't weighed myself in ~ 3 weeks.  I think I'm becoming the opposite of "obsessive" about tracking my progress and it could cause me some issues.  The good thing is that there have still been quite a number of NSV's happening that is telling me that I'm still progressing without knowing what the scale says.
      First one is that a belt I bought about 5 weeks ago because all my other belts were too big is also on the last hole so I'll have to buy yet another belt again.  second, I bought new jeans about a month ago and I have a lot more slack in the waist than I did when I purchased them.  I also boarded a plane and had about 8 inches of slack in the belt.  Finally, I hit my goal last week of being able to ride go-carts with my kids.  The last time I tried about 4 years ago, I had to leave because I couldn't fit in the harness.  This was sweet victory and I showed those two how it was done on the race course!!  😈

      I just looked through all my old pants after my pre-op pants started getting to big. Keep in mind that I wear men's pants (usually cargos) because I am so tall 5'10"/5'11" ish. I also find that men's baggies tend to fit me better.
      I started out at a 44 in waist pant and quickly found that I was back down to my 42's. So even when thise got to be too big, I had to start pulling old clothes out of storage. After finding my 38's, I thought that these would not yet fit, but when I tried them on, they fit perfectly. I also found some older pants that now fit better than I remembered. What a relief! It's not like I can pop down to the store like I could do in the US and the styles here in Sweden are all skinnt jeans which I cant stand. I also found some 36's, but I'm not mentally ready to try those on yet. The biggest challenge will be buying women's clothing again.
