What meats are you eating 6 weeks post op



Recommended Posts

I am six weeks out and am only eating tuna (including ahi tuna) and ham. I have heard too many people say that chicken is too dry and roast beef is too tough. I will wait a few weeks before attempting them.

Hi, I’m eating baked chicken, lean lunch meat with low sodium, tuna, salmon, sardines, and chicken sausage. And I’m doing very well with these, 2-3 oz portions. No vomiting ever.

Hope this helps.

Hi-

I have been able to eat shrimp, fish, chicken, turkey and ham. I really haven't had any issues with any of them, so far at least! :)

I was able to eat all meats at that stage. I haven’t really struggled with any which is a complete contrast to when I had my band

I have been able to eat shrimp, fish, soft chicken, and chop meat. The chop meat sits the best for me. I asked my doctor about it, knowing the chop meat isnt the best choice. He said it's fine as long as I use the 90 or 95% lean meat. I also have had a baked turkey lunch meat that also sits well.

I know it's not meat, but string cheese also sits well.

Tuna hurts my stomach. I havent tried steak or roast.

I am just over 2 1/2 months our and I am eating chicken prepared in my slow cooker, deli ham and ground meat. Anything else sits on my stomach heavy and it is not a good feeling.

I am able to basically eat the same but have seemed to only stick to salmon and softer foods for some reason. I think it's just mostly taste at the moment.

At six weeks post-op I was same as now (7 months post-op) and could eat chicken and hamburger, salmon, and tuna. I still can't eat steak or sausage.

And at the other sad end of the spectrum, 10.5 Months since Surgery---Precious Pouch still says" No Thank You" to meats, very occasionally I can fool her by puree- ing the Snarf out of them and trying to pass them into my Soups, but she is smarter than an egg- shaped piece of Gastric Flesh ought to be, she is only a semi- benevolent dictator. So what Protein stays down I have had to get creative about, started shopping over on the Vegan side of the Store, oh yes in my ❤of❤I might still be carnivorous but in practice not so much. And maybe a coincidence, but no Migraines since her Reign of Terror started, mayhaps I am more healthy and less sickened physiologically? Who would have thunk? Accept it for what it is worth, that is the Frustr8 Motto of The Day now.

I have had shrimp, scallops, seared tuna, salmon, cod, dark meat chicken (Rotisserie), lean meatloaf, roast, lean sausage, stewed lamb. So I have had a lot of the meats. The only one that sat heavy and did not give me a good feeling was the roast. We chose a lean roast and cut fat off but it was still to much. Everything else has been great. I would also say that a boiled egg has left me feeling a little less than stellar.

I'm also at 7 weeks. You should recheck with you doctor as I have found that every doctor has a very different approach. I am not to be grazing at all. It's a habit I was told to eradicate while my appetite and hunger are practically non existent. I was told to have one 2 to 4 oz protien meal a day and 2 shakes a day for another 2 to 3 months. The "meal" right now should consist of lean protien. Like a soft piece of chicken ,fish or a lean meatball. And that's it. Now I cant lie and say I've stuck to that 100%. I am doing a lot of exercise and I eat a string cheese stick or a teaspoon of Peanut Butter before my workout.

Since Im a teacher on summer vacation, I dont have much of set schedule for eating. In fact, it's only my dogs that have a regular eating time and that's only cuz they very loudly remind me. But to make sure that im keeping control over what I eat, I keep a food journal in a standard papper calendar. (It was this year's New Year's Resolution and probably the only one Ive ever kept.)

Oddly enough I kinda liked the Meal Replacement shakes and have one for breakfast. I hate (am not very good at) cooking as well, but recently Ive gotten into omelettes which has become my go to meal. They are really perfect WLS meal. You can put any sort of Protein in it and any veg you have handy as well. So by adding protein to eggs you get protein on protein. So far Ive used salmon for one and lamb sausages for another.

      Yesterday I discovered stretchy pants. It was the first time that I walked into a normal store and dared to try on clothes in over many many years. Scary, but I found some guy chinos that I liked. I was even able to wear women's sizes even though the legs were wayyyyy too short.

      Down 31 pounds in my first month! OK, so a month and two days, but I'm counting it anyway. 😆
      At this point, I'm doing well overall. According to surgeons' instructions, I'm on soft foods for another week-ish. I'm so ready for solids - the soft foods can be such "sliders" and I have to be extra, extra careful.
      For example, my refried beans + dollop of plain Greek yogurt + tomatillo salsa verde became a problem. I never felt satisfied and felt I could have easily had a much bigger serving. Then, far worse was when I made homemade hummus - holy cow it is SO GOOD, but again - felt like I could have downed a quart, no problem. 😂
      It's (for me at least) extremely challenging to "eat mindfully" when the food is that soft. I mean for crying out loud, there's nothing to "chew on"! 😂
      So, couple of days ago - I committed to no more refried beans and no more hummus. Farewell my delicious friends. Going to focus on chicken and tuna and eggs for the time being (ground up til mushy, of course). 
      I'm hoping that once I get the go-ahead to introduce solids I will be able to feel the restriction. Because honestly? I'm only a month in, and I feel NO restriction. It's frustrating, but not the end of the world. Willpower was never my problem. But I'm so looking forward to that feeling I hear a lot on here when people say "Oh I ate half an egg and was SO STUFFED." This has....not been my experience. 😕
      Really hoping that's because my foods are so mushy/soft right now. We shall see. 
      Regardless, I'm 100 percent committed. I hear over and over how this tool is the most powerful for about a year, maybe/possibly a wee bit more. I will not sabotage that for the world. 
      So - doing my happy dance at 31 pounds down - I'm in a "weight decade" I haven't seen in a very long time. And it only gets better from here!

      Hi!
      Thank you for replying.   It means the world to me.  It also confirmed what I been feeling about which procedure to choose.   I fall into the category as you do and elected the sleeve as it seemed to be less invasive and recovery would be better and faster,  however I am so afraid to regain the weight back since I rarely eat and obesity runs in my family.   I have two siblings that had the bypass and they have been successful.  My sister was in the high 400's and is about 140 now and has been for several years since her procedure.  I guess I felt that the sleeve would allow me to have more control, however I realized that I can't control my genetics and that is one of the biggest reasons that I am here.  Yes, I have not always made the best choices but trust me when I say that I have been on the loss and regain + more rollercoaster weight ride for yrs! I have spent so much money as I am sure you have as well as many others who are going through this.  It is not easy and anyone who thinks this is a copout is crazy!!! This has been harder than anything I have done including hiring a personal trainer to kick my butt in the gym! And still with all the gym hours, clean eating "not to mention the clean eating cost" I knew it was time that I moved to the next step to finally be who I know in my head and heart cause when I see myself in the mirror,  well let's just say is not the girl I see in my mind. 
      So thanks again for your reply and I hope that we can keep in touch through our journey. 
      😊

      I'm going in for a sleeve revision October 4th. It worked well for me, and I am not back to my starting weight. However, a revision is strongly encouraged at this time (there are additional medical issues). I have decided to forgo the insurance process, even though I know I would eventually be approved. "Eventually" is the key issue here. I have a small window to create this to where it will not impact my work or home life as much, and waiting for the insurance approval would take over a year.
