I’m on the last leg of my Stage 1 Diet and I’m craving ice cream NOT popsicles but ice cream. Does anyone know if and when I can indulge?

Ask your Doctor or nutritionist.

Try things like fudge pops no sugar added, they're good, also skinny cow has some good ice cream just dont eat it everyday or your gonna add weight back on quickly, also breyers has a low card ice cream bar with dark chocolate that I love. Good luck just remember it's a treat.

Whoa, girl!!!! This is the time to practice coping skills - not indulgence! Indulgence is what got us where we were before surgery. We gotta leave it behind and embrace a new way of thinking, living , and eating. You have been given some good suggestions to practice now.

Probably not the smartest plan to be looking for sweet treats so early in your journey. Can set up some unhealthy patterns for the future.

Try to figure out what it is about ice cream that you're really craving... is it the cold? (blend a Protein Shake with a bunch of ice cubes for a frapaccino like texture) Is it the creaminess? Add 1/2 a banana to your Protein shake. Is it the sweet?

Whatever it is that you really are craving, there are better alternatives for you. And I also suggest spending some time learning how head hunger is different from real hunger. It really messed with my head, particularly the first couple of weeks when I was living on greek yoghurt and pureed Soup.

Stay strong. You can do this.

That's an incredible reddit post. Hilarious and problematic all at once!

Freeze sugar free pudding in a popsicle mold or just a plastic cup. You can eat a few tablespoons of whipped cream over sugar free Jello or pudding (orange jello and whipped cream reminds me of an orangesicle.

Fit n Active has a vanilla and orange sorbet bar thats really good and only 110 calories I believe. However you can only buy it at Aldi's.

my surgeon's office seems to semi-promote halo top, but I am thinking I will stay away since it gave me upset stomach before surgery, so I can't imagine it would go down well post-op. also, most of the flavors taste like crap, and it never really satisfied my ice cream craving anyway. that said, it seems like it the least of all evils if you are desperately craving ice cream and are far out enough. my nutritionist guidelines also recommended Yasso bars as early as second week post-op. They are frozen greek yogurt bars and have 6g of Protein. I was able to find this at the grocery store, and I really like them.

Yes! Yes! Yasso bars are amazing. I'm 3 weeks postop and I got the fudge bars. They're the perfect size and have a good bit of protein.

I also don't like halo top flavors, the salted caramel swirl is the only tolerable one I've encountered. However, I love nightfood and Enlightened, both are lower calorie icecreams with good flavor selection. Enlightened even has a Keto line! My two favorite flavors are enlightened cold brew and nightfood cherry eclipse but I haven't tried either postop

        I ended up having the surgery on March 1st.

      June 17th is almost here. Picked up everything I need for my after surgery needs. After work will go home and finish packing a light overnight bag to make sure I don't forget anything. And the final countdown begins. Not nervous at all just looking forward to the call for my arrival time.

      I am 19 days post op and I am still struggling to drink the fluids. I am not even able to drink the protein shakes their now nasty to me , I tried the protein bars & it didn’t end well. I have chest pains & I can barely eat. I am weak & my mouth is always dry, and feeling nauseous. Can anyone provide any advise. At least I doing the vitamins. Recently my chest & stomach have a burning sensation.

        I had a very difficult time finding protein shakes that tasted okay and didn't make me sick. I ended up drinking FairLife Core Power protein shakes. I love the chocolate (tastes like chocolate milk to me). I like to blend it with some ice and PB2 powder (or real PB) to give the smoothie consistency. I also found that if I put Panera's Turkey Vegetable soup through the blender, I could eat it. I survived off those two things. My chest pains were from the gas, which was incredibly bad and took so much longer than I expected to resolve. I'd definitely stay away from bars or anything solid until you've conquered liquids. I'd love to tell you the dry mouth will get better soon, but it didn't for me for a very long time (months). The plus to that was that I drank a ton of water. The good new is I suspect you are close to the light at the end of the tunnel on this first and hardest part of the journey. It gets SO much easier after this part.

        I am 2 days post-op and really struggling with everything. My depression isn't helping any. I couldn't even finish one shake today and swallowing meds is just excruciating.

      I am a week post op and I honestly feel like crap! I keep feeling so nauseous and I can’t get my self to drink a good amount of water. I honestly feel very regretful today. When does it get better?

        By the third week you will feel some relief. Don't push yourself too much with quantity that first week. I just made sure to keep sipping and walking which helped me feel better.

        I hear you. This has been the hardest day for me so far (2 days post-op).
