I waited to just recently to try it and I'm 4.5 months post-op. I can't eat a lot, but is nice to get a bit. No problems eating it.

Anyone know if you’ll be able to have bread/pasta and how long after

Yes you will be able to, with that being said you may want to wait until you are close to goal. Once you start playing around with foods not on the plan you may have a hard time getting to where you are trying to go. It can be a slippery slope.

I eat very small amounts of grain carbs at this point (5.5 months out) because as I get closer to goal, the weight loss is slowing down. I want to save the carbs for maintenance phase. I will eat rice cakes once in a while, or a little bit of cooked quinoa or rice, but that's about it. I might have a corn tortilla very very rarely. I have had an occasional piece of gluten free bread or some GF spaghetti. My highest carb intake is from fruit, some Beans and lentils. I look forward to adding more whole grains back into my diet, but that is for later, when I can afford the extra calories.

I think you need to be pretty careful in the beginning so you don't jeaprodize your weight loss. Just getting enough Protein is challenge enough, and then adding veggies, legumes, nuts/seeds, and a little fruit. Starches should be the very last thing to add. Of course, a very little bit once in while is not really going to hurt anything as long as it doesn't set you up for over indulging.

There are plenty of high Protein Pasta on the market. My dietitian told me to be careful when I eat the protein pasta because they can still be high in carbs. Her suggestion was to make chicken or turkey meat sauce and add a little protein to pasta to it. The focus should always be the protein.

      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.

      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!!  😈
