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.

I'm a big fan of cherry tomatoes. Great snack!

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.

      Donated 50 lbs of Jeans and another 30lbs of shirts to Salvation Army. 
      Had to go buy some new clothes that I used to hate, but now kind of like. Trying not to buy too many though as I know in a few months I'll be donating them as well.

      Hello everyone! I just joined the forum today. Had my surgery almost 3 months ago and lost about 44 pounds. Most of the weight was lost within the first month, and my weight loss slowed down almost to a stop. I became very frustrated. Talked with my dietitian several times, and it turns out I haven't been eating enough. Who knew! I was eating around 500 calories a day, and exercising daily. Well, I had to up my intake to 800 to 1,000 calories. I'll see what happens.
