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.

        I haven't pooped in a weed and I'd love a 4 pound poo right now lol

      2. ms.sss

        Lol, yeah, I've been known to drop 3-ish lbs after a good (and long awaited) poop.

        .....or even after a moderate to severe dumping episode. yikes.

      I met with my surgeon on Friday.. I've completed all my tests and all my nutrition meetings as well as meeting the weight loss requirements for my insurance. We are officially submitting to insurance for approval and I was given a surgery date of January 16th 2020 (13 days before my birthday!) Fingers crossed all goes through

      Ok, now im getting old...my body gets me up at my normal 5am dog walk even when it's the weekend, vacation, and most importantly when I'm sick. So now that I have more energy, my body wants to make sure I suffer even longer during the day when I have a cold! Damn being healthy again! (:D)

      At my Primary Physician appt, the Doc said you know you lost a whole person. When you started seeing me you were 265lbs now you're 148lbs.
      She's right... I lost the fun me 😂 Joking Joking Joking. It's amazing who keeps track when you don't like insurance and browsers feeds
