pre packed meals snacks breads



Recommended Posts

Hi,

I'm a long way off from eating solid foods but I am curious about the bariatric websites pre packaged foods, high Protein Snacks and Desserts and breads/bagels.

Have any of you tried them and is it even possible at some point to eat a bagel or a pre packaged meal after gastric bypass?

I'm an outlier. (disclaimer)

In the early days, I used pre-packaged foods cuz I ate so little, and it was convenient not to have to cook. Then as I graduated to lean/mean weight loss machine terms, I kicked most of the pre-pared convenience stuff to the curb so I could max out my losses in the shortest time.

Now that I'm very close to goal, I'm adding some of them back in--not sure if that's healthy to do--cuz the least processed the better in my opinion.

I think it's a YMMV (your mileage may vary) thing. Some use and still lose quickly, others stall and get lost within the seduction of high reward treats and convenience.

I do use Shirataki noodles though, some Epic sticks, some beef jerkey, some Protein drinks/powders and the occasional bite of a bar for a sweet hit. It's just not often.

(no inspiration here), just an average--very average--shmo on the internet trying to figure out how to hack myself. :)

And what works for me, just doesn't work for a lot of people. :)

      Looks like I need people around to complete a 10K.  I tried to do one by myself this afternoon and I gave up at around the 7km mark.  Gonna try again on Friday, but I may have to look into joining a running club...

      My Surgeon asked me a question the other day and i didn't give it a lot of thought at the time.
      He asked "do you tell"
      we were talking about peoples reaction to seeing me since i lost such a large amount of me.
      I answered that i do tell if they ask but that it seems most everyone is afraid to mention it if they haven't seen me in a while or they decided they already know the answer so they don't need the truth from me (we all know those types)
      I have had exactly one family friend come right out and ask me how i lost so much weight this year and i told her i had Gastric Sleeve.
      I am sure family has passed it around to other family (you have that type family don't you? or is it just me)  
      So that left me wondering "do you tell" and i dont mean right at surgery time. more like a year or so down the road do you say how or do you just say cut out the sugar and carbs and WAALAA
      Its a real personal choice to open yourself up to that kind of criticism and we know all about how we took the "Easy" way and yada yada yada.
      hope everyone is having a great week
