Now I know fish and chips aren't considered healthy. I've done Keto for about 4-5 months now, had Gastric bypass 10/21, looking forward to getting back to keto because I do like that lifestyle (when I can eat normal again), but i wanted to treat myself for once, does anybody know if fish and chips will digest properly 4 weeks post op(soft food stage)?

Hmmm. This *likely* isn't on any post op plan at soft stage/4 weeks post op but just incase check with your NUT/Dietician/Surgeon to see exactly what the professionals say 😉

See my profile picture - Heed this warning do not try it -

However I do make a form of fish and chips that i can handle 4 months out - I cook for two kids so you may want to split this is alot of fish

-1 pound Grouper Fresh - (Sub soft white fish)

Batter - I use a light flour 1 cup, 2 cups flax seed - 1 cup panko light. - Everyglades seasoning, old by and salt and pepper - This is the dry mix

Next take 4 eggs and whip the heck out of them in a nutra bullet- add a little Water so you have a runny egg mixture

Take the fish dry and lightly dust with the dry mix - Light as you can just to remove the moisture from the fish - KEY KEY KEY - leave sit for awhile 10 minutes - Now into the eggs - KEY KEY KEY let sit - Now lightly dust again with the dry mix - You are not rolling it into the dry mix for a thick batter - I use a shaker to dust it on.

Next key thing - NO FRYING

USE A AIR FRYER - NO GREASE OR OIL - It will be very good but will not be loaded with the breeding and the greese.

This would make me sick as a dog. Both the fries and the battered fish.

another thing - at four weeks out, I was probably eating around 500 calories a day. That's probably like one piece of battered fried fish. WAY too much for one month out. Bad idea. Same with fries. Maybe a piece of baked fish would work.

Sorry as for the chips thing - Good luck with that, There is not a chance in hell even with a culinary degree I will ever touch a potato again, Those things got me into this mess. I Really from a food science view see any way to prep a carb so you can handle it. Especially this early. Rice is half that of potatoes and it raises hell all over this site with people, I just stay clear of that - I would say over a hour you could handle a 5oz pre cook weight of white fluffy wet fish, Grouper, Halibut, Snapper, - I would not do any fresh Water fish yet, they are denser and usually tougher.

As my side for above i puree squash and goes real well -

      Me: Hey Siri, Is it raining outside? (for my morning walks with the dogs)
      Siri: I don't think it's raining at the moment.
      Wet Dogs: Then why are we wet? This damn Siri person is more stupid than we are.

      I received my nutrition book and checklist today! I am so very excited (and a tad bit scared too) Each day this is becoming a reality!
      I created a new blog post about how BRAVE we all are for doing this. Because I think we are! Most of us know the horrors of people calling us nasty names, saying we can't control ourselves, we are easy targets for people's verbal attacks! But I feel we are BRAVE because we are taking control over our lives and creating a new world of happiness.

      Today I scheduled my mental evaluation and my nutritionist appointments. Yes, we are moving along quiet nice.  December 9th will be here before you know it.
      I have informed my inner circle of family about the surgery and I will be keeping it in my CORE!

      Well, it has been a while since I posted here, but my journey continues. As for breaking my stall, I was able to get down to 214 with the help of a friend via our Fitbit fitness trackers which has made me ecstatic! Since that has happened I was fortunate enough to have my insurance company approve a panniculectomy to remove the panniculus (THIS is the correct term, NOT pannus, see this reference: https://www.merriam-webster.com/medical/panniculus) that has been deviling me for years, even before I had bariatric surgery. It was to the point that it was hanging down far enough to cover my pubic area, covered half my thighs when I would sit, and also drooped between my legs which I could hardly manage to keep together when sitting. For any males that may read this, for a woman that is pretty uncivilized, not to mention, unladylike especially when wearing a dress or skirt - just looks slovenly to say the least. Despite the numerous skin issues I had the last couple of years, my health insurance insisted the procedure was cosmetic... 🤐 . I would guess no one that is saying so has been in the bariatric patient's shoes. The damn thing was just getting to be a self-esteem killer in addition to a medical nuisance requiring many visits to my primary care physician, and interfering with my mobility. Now, I realize there are folks with more egregious panniculus sag issues, but the fact that it interferes with mobility is an important consideration.
      One thing I have to say is that this surgery is drastically different from any other I've had. Things occur that are deemed routine, expected even, after a panniculectomy that would be downright unacceptable after any other procedure. This plastic surgery experience is definitely a learning experience that is still unfolding as I key this entry. For one thing, the swelling is a story all it's own, I had no clue my abdomen could get so large, so quickly, without causing my skin to just split open - it's crazy! So far, I'm pleased to have been able to get this procedure despite may be perceived as drawbacks, just to get the pendulous adipose tissue demon off of my person. Here are a few links to information about this procedure for anyone considering it in the future:

I will provide updates periodically on my progress of this surgical recovery. Have a wonderful day!
