Recommended Posts

Hello everyone just wondering am i the only one whos going thru this.... ny taste buds has def change...all i want is cold drinks but any sweet drinks are beyond horrible for me they taste sooo gross.... Well yesterday i saw watermelon and i blended with ice...OMG!... for me it has been the best thing i have drank so far.... Now is there any drinks anyone could recommend ... Is it ok to drink natural juice... like beet juice... like orange and carrit juice.... i love drinks like that but just wondering is it okay or a very bad idea.... I did order the premier protien clear drink TROPICAL FLAVOR...for me is so sweet i even added extra Water and ice to see if the taste changes and still it taste gross to me🤦🏻‍♀️🤦🏻‍♀️🤦🏻‍♀️🤦🏻‍♀️

I used to be a diet coke drinker. After surgery I was dooing good and only drank Water for about 6 weeks. Now I have grown fond of iced tea. I make it myself and pour it over a big glass of ice cubes. It is the best thing ever. I drink an occasional diet coke also, but it doesn't give me the same taste or feeling anymore.

I had my last visit with my dietician prior to my surgery, and I was amazed that they allow diet soda, as long as you wait two months to let the stomach sutures totally heal. That made me happy!

I too have to have everything cold with ice or ice chips. In fact I had it in the hospital to get my Water in. All cold all the time.... for water and drinks... I can't stand cold Soup though.

I am from the south so sweet tea is a way of life, until now. Now I brew caffeine-free ice tea and drink it over ice. My nurse laughed and asked how my brown Water tastes. I like it. I don't do sugar substitutes, or carbonated drinks so it is my tea for me.

Prolly a few reasons - the carbonation can't be good for the smaller stomachs, the acid as well, the artificial sweeteners in diet soda are just as bad as sugar for you and it's a small stretch to go from diet coke back to regular coke so it's best to avoid all together.

        I haven't pooped in a weed and I'd love a 4 pound poo right now lol

      2. ms.sss

        Lol, yeah, I've been known to drop 3-ish lbs after a good (and long awaited) poop.

        .....or even after a moderate to severe dumping episode. yikes.

      I met with my surgeon on Friday.. I've completed all my tests and all my nutrition meetings as well as meeting the weight loss requirements for my insurance. We are officially submitting to insurance for approval and I was given a surgery date of January 16th 2020 (13 days before my birthday!) Fingers crossed all goes through

      Ok, now im getting old...my body gets me up at my normal 5am dog walk even when it's the weekend, vacation, and most importantly when I'm sick. So now that I have more energy, my body wants to make sure I suffer even longer during the day when I have a cold! Damn being healthy again! (:D)
