LOL, unless you're on the pre-op liquid diet, or post op lower stages or are on full liquids... ;)

See, there's always free cheese in a trap.

I agree with the poster who suggested spiralized vegetables. Spiralize some zucchini (or buy some already spiralized) and saute it until it's al dente. Then eat it just like you would noodles.

OR just eat the meat and the sauce in a bowl.

I LOVE spiralized zucchini. It cooks up fast, is delicious, and functions the same as “real” Pasta.

Had spaghetti squash. Meh. It works, but to me there was something "off" about having it with my spaghetti sauce. Spiralized zucchini...Much better!

Now, I'm really curious about the Shirataki Noodles. @ms.sss Have you tried them? How are they? Taste? Texture?

Yes, I eat them quite often. They have the consistency of al dente-like rice noodles. They are pretty tasteless on their own, they take on a bit of the flavour of whatever you add to them. I've eaten them with sauces on top, in Soups, part of salads, etc. They are VERY filling.

Now that I am in maintenance I do have spaghetti on occasion. Spaghetti squash is a great alternative if you are in weight loss phase.

Oh I heart all of these subs. Truly don't miss Pasta anymore because of them. :) I also love any veggie in spirals:

broccoli

cauliflower

kohlrabi

turnip

daikon

rutabaga

all the squashes

beets

carrots

english cucumber

I feel like Bubba Gump! ;) On love Shirataki noodles and shirataki rice (especially the rice when mixed with caulirice).

Do you spiral them yourself? If so what's good to use?

      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.
