Drinking and eating same time



Recommended Posts

How many of you drink and eat at the same time? I’ve tried to follow the guidelines of not drinking 15 minutes before eating and waiting 30 minutes after eating. But I’d really like to drink during meals...

It’s sort of a cardinal rule of WLS, I would follow it

I don't drink with my meals. I wait until before and after.

I firmly follow this rule

But

Ask your Surgeon/Team when/if you can...

Good Luck 💜

9 months out. I don't drink during nor at least 30 minutes after eating.

I do, however, drink right up to the start of eating a meal.

I integrated this rule into my life and don't deviate too much from it.

I don't ever drink during a meal and I wait at least 30 minutes after to drink again. The only exception would be if I need to take meds that need to be taken with food. In that circumstance, I drink only what's necessary to swallow the pill/vitamin.

However, I drink right up til starting of a meal.

I was told to avoid drinking 30 before & after meals. My nutritionist did say it was ok to SIP during a meal if you’re dying for a drink. However, I was also told that if you’re getting thirsty, you should check with yourself To see if you’re full. Listen to your body & good luck!

      Donated 50 lbs of Jeans and another 30lbs of shirts to Salvation Army. 
      Had to go buy some new clothes that I used to hate, but now kind of like. Trying not to buy too many though as I know in a few months I'll be donating them as well.

      Hello everyone! I just joined the forum today. Had my surgery almost 3 months ago and lost about 44 pounds. Most of the weight was lost within the first month, and my weight loss slowed down almost to a stop. I became very frustrated. Talked with my dietitian several times, and it turns out I haven't been eating enough. Who knew! I was eating around 500 calories a day, and exercising daily. Well, I had to up my intake to 800 to 1,000 calories. I'll see what happens.
