Fruits and Veggies



Recommended Posts

I'm now about three months out and am looking to try to start adding some fruits and veggies back in to my diet. What recommended of each should I try? What should I avoid?

All plans are different – Add what’s on your plan. Try small amounts at first to see what your stomach can tolerate.

I'm cleared to eat "anything," but I just wanted some recommendations. (Anything, so long as the sugar content per serving is <10g.)

My dietitian recommended Water Mellon, berries, cantaloupes and those high in Fiber while avoiding the more sugary fruits. I told her that I like cherries and she said sure, unfortunately cherries are heavy on my stomach. When eating fruits its best to eat with a Protein, cottage cheese, yogurt etc. Always check with your plan of course.

Watermelon and cantaloupe were the first fruits I tried and I had no problem. Disclaimer: I seem to have an Iron stomach, nothing has bothered me.

Since I was able to eat solid foods, I haven't had a bad reaction to any fruit that I've tried. I use to eat a lot of apples and the small mandarins like cuties, but I've kinda burned out on them. Lately I've been into fruits like mango's, pineapple & nectarines. My dietician warned to not eat too much fruit, but it's never effected me in a negative way, so I eat what I want of it.

I have only had one bad reaction to veggies and it was from The Panda King. It was a small serving of Broccoli Beef no rice, for some reason it didn't sit well. Salads are my go to veggie. But be warned, salads can be a slider food. For me I can eat a whole plate of it where as more dense food like meat I can't eat more than a few ounces at a time.

with fruit, I started with berries. Now at four years out, I can eat pretty much any fruit except citrus fruits (the acid bothers my stomach).

Cooked veggies are much easier on your stomach than raw, so start with those. I can usually eat raw veggies now, too, but sometimes they irritate my stomach, even this far out.

as an above poster said, though, check your plan first - they're all different.

      Got my haircut today and its always amazing how much better i feel afterwards.
      i have always considered it an odd thing that i enjoy a haircut so much.
      The smell of the barbershop (no salons allowed) and the whole scissors and clippers feel and sound is so relaxing.
      I have had the same barber since 1987 and i am not sure how i will handle it if that guy ever dares to die on me. I am pretty sure that the magazines on the bottom of the stack are the same ones from my first visit.
      just started Ron Powers -Mark Twain Biography- enjoying it

      I have to say, even more than 2 years out, it is so much easier to be good when your busy and so easy to go wrong when your bored.  Crappy weather and the wife is sick so i feel trapped in this house and i have to really watch myself.  At least the holiday leftovers are gone.
      Going to get out this week even if for only a few hours, maybe go see  Ford vs Ferrari that looks real good.
      Ok, whining over, I hope everyone is doing well and had a good thanksgiving.

        I hear ya. I notice the only time I ever "feel like eating" when I'm not actually hungry is when I'm watching TV for too long.
