Surprisingly, I have been having success with international foods. I tried a small portion of the mushroom chicken and angus steak from Panda Express (of course no rice because I’m only 7 weeks post gastric sleeve) and it was soo good! My sleeve didn’t fight me. Today I just noticed thatOlive Garden now offers Zoodles! Zoodles is Pasta made from zucchini. I had the Salmon piccata that is served with zucchini, it was good but I have now discovered that I don’t really care for salmon anymore. My husband makes delicious Jamaican curry chicken so he’s going to make some for me that is mild and use cauliflower rice to accompany it. Has anyone else had success with international cuisine either store bought or homemade?

I can eat pretty much anything now, but early out (once I was cleared for solid foods), yes - I ate international food. With Chinese, I'd skip the rice and focus on something with (non-fried) meat & veggies. Mexican - I'd order a fajita and again just focus on the meat & veggies. Or else I'd get a taco and just eat the innards. Middle Eastern places - kabobs work, and so does hummus.

I"m glad to hear so many places are offering zoodles now. I heard recently that Noodles & Co has a zoodles option for some of its dishes, too. That opens up a whole new world, since I haven't eaten Pasta in over four years!

That's interesting to hear about Zoodles options at Olive Garden and Noodles & Co.

At Noodles & Co you can make any item with Zoodles, even if it's not one of the advertised combos. There's a small upcharge.

Yep I think it's now known as Noodles World Kitchen. It's a fast casual Pasta place.

      RE: the running/training
      Honestly it started with me just doing laps around the kitchen that first post-op week.
      In a week, I graduated to walking up and down my street, then to walking around the block every day.
      The distance increased, then the speed.
      Then I started running little spurts during my walks, then to alternating 1km runs with 1km walks.
      And now I can do a continuous 10k (which I totally did for the first time this morning...so full of myself about it today, it’s disgusting.)
      Just do something everyday and slowly increase speed and duration, next thing you know you’ll be one of those odd “running people” (who I never understood pre-op, but now totally get, lol)

        Happy Sunday! I like weird people. Normal people are boring! :) I began following you and wanted to know if there are any other members you would recommend? My surgery is 8/29/19 and I want to learn as much as possible. Have a great day and thanks so much for the website.
