I’m five years out and still have to be careful of dense meat. chicken breast pork or steak. I don’t get the foam is anymore, but if I eat in a hurry and don’t chew enough these sit in my stomach like a lead weight.

Good one! Me too... other donuts don’t tempt me at all but Krispy Kreme sure do!

Does that mean you cant have cheese?

Well I can have low-fat cheese but I don't recall ever trying it before.

I used to like putting a crazy amount of cheese in and on stuff....can't do that anymore.

Any meats make me sick, beef, pork, turkey. I was a big time meat eater before surgery, now the smell and the thought of eating any meats makes me want to hurl.

Yeah, crazy amount might make me dump as well. I have been counting calories so I havnt had crazy amounts yet. But cheese (in moderation) has been my new chocolate. It's nice to be able to eat it in order to get Protein.

Have you tried to sous vide it? It changes the taste and makes it much easier to eat since it keeps all the juices in. A total game changer imho.

Haha! Be careful, “All magic comes with a price, dearly!” Bahaha!

Be “poo proactive!” Become a poo hunter. Part of a by-product of this surgery is that it can be a struggle for many of us to figure out our poo-hack so we have lovely and regular bms. Cheese is part of a group I love/hate that I call the “anti-bms.” Hehe

Ive been thinking about this thread for a while and thinking about what food triggers me to want to eat lots of it. (Sorry that it's not really what the original poster really meant by this phrase.) ..-and I finally came up with my real kryptonite. Although I love cheese, my real kryptonite is...duh duh duh...CARBS! I love carbs! I am addicted to carbs! Food like various breads and doughy treats are my absolute biggest trigger to overeating. In fact, I'm trying (a modified) Keto just to see if I can get some controll over them. Food addiction sucks!

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.

      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.
