8weeks post op and need food ideas



Recommended Posts

Hi all! Well I’m slowly getting through this new phase in my life and becoming closer with Sleevie (my sleeve) everyday. Just need a little advice. I am about tired of Water because it tastes funny. I use to love water and now I can only drink about 8oz before it starts tasting funny. What type of juice can we have? Also as far as food it seems I can only tolerate ground beef and shrimp. I haven’t tried too much just yet. I don’t do Protein Shakes instead I eat my Protein. My go to meals now are eggs, bacon, mini meatloafs, and chip less nachos. Please I need more meal options. Thanks you. I wish I could have some fruit!

Do you make smoothies? This was my Breakfast for a long time around 8 weeks. A yummy recipe that is full of Protein and nutrients:

1 cup milk (I use soy, but your choice. Would not recommend almond milk cuz lower in protein)

1 heaping tablespoon plain Greek yogurt

Several green leaves from kale or spinach (you can also use frozen spinach leaves)

1 scoop Protein Powder

1/4 - 1/2 c. mixed frozen berries (or fresh)

1/4 banana

Some slices of fresh ginger if you like.

Whir it up in blender or Ninja or Magic Bullet.

I will also add some frozen prickly pear juice, or a small tangerine, or even some canned beets.

juice has a lot of sugar in it, but you can buy things like cranberry beverages that have something like 5% or 10% juice that are low in sugar and five calories. Ocean Spray makes them - as do one or two other companies. They'd be in the juice section of the store.

I also drink a lot of flavored waters, like Bai. And then there's Crystal Light...

what about Soup? i’m 2 months out and i basically live off of soup. i just get one with no Pasta and lots of veggies in it. gives you liquid and some food! this week i tried ritz crackers with it also. as far as drinking i had the same thing happen to me with the Water tasting funny and i started buying the crystal light ice tea and i can’t get enough of it! it tastes so good. do you have the problem where you can still only take like small sips or one gulp at a time before it feels like it’s coming back up? that’s my biggest problem when it comes to drinking. also i was very dehydrated and my doctor recommended the sugar free Powerade at least once a day to replenish some electrolytes. hope this helps and congrats on your surgery! it’s not easy but it’s getting easier!!

i'm confused ??? at 8 weeks out you can just about eat anything healthy that your tummy tolerates .protein first, vegetables second right??? I just don't eat straight out carbs like rice, Pasta and bread anything else just go for it … as long as the portions remain correct for you ...and you getting in your Protein and water without going over your calorie intake for you it's all good right? Please let me know if im not correct because i'm 8 weeks out...

Depends on the doctor. Mine is fine with me eating anything but very low fat and carbs

I like the Water flavoring products, Crystal Light and similar (Stur is my personal favorite). They're zero calorie or very close to it. I only put in about 1/4 of a full "serving" because I just want to lightly flavor the water, not make fruit punch. It helps me get 100-120 oz down per day.

Bone Broth w veggies and chicken thigh meat, warm tea, sf popsicles. At two months many of us still used one shake a day to get in required Protein. Grilled pork steak. Regular beef steak was too harsh, and I could not tolerate any lettuce until 9 months out - slimes. But spinach in a cheese omelet. Ground turkey was easier than ground beef for me. Soft baked fish

      Went to see the Star Wars movie yesterday. (Glad I waited as no one else was in the cinema for the midday session - yes!) Hadn’t been to the cinema for a few months and OMG I suffered the most terrible butt pain.  So uncomfortable. Started after 30 mins. Was in the premium cinema so grabbed a cushion to sit on but it didn’t help. Ended up sitting sideways in the chair, stretched out on an ottoman. Soooo super glad no one else was there. Sometimes I do miss my old butt fat cushioning... but not really.

      I have a surgery date, I have my next doctor appointment on Wed and then Thursday I start my 2 week liquid pre-op diet. I am very nervous right now. I know it's going to be a tough mind game.

      Week 5 Post Op Report

      What a journey! I am 5 weeks from surgery and a total of 24.4 pounds down!

      I feel amazing! I’ve incorporated a ton of walking and I’m using my Apple Watch to help me along! I have closed all three of my fitness rings for 11 days straight! Ok, so I am in LOVE with my Apple Watch. I've had it for almost a year and I am just now tapping into it's fitness power!

      I keep on top of my protein, vitamins and biotin!

      I struggle with water but I average about 50 ounces a day. I have only had one day where I had to “purge” because something did not agree with me. Tuna and my Tiny Tummy still do not agree so I’m going to leave it alone for a while!

      I walk on average a little more than 3 miles a day for my exercise but manage to get in at least 13,000-17,000 steps a day depending on how my schedule goes.

      I get up every hour and walk around for at least five minutes. Then if I’m watching a show I get up and walk in place during the commercials!

      I meet with my doc this week for a progress report.

      I have one more week before I graduate from soft foods to the final phase!

      I’ve got my cookbooks ready, my food scale ready and my measuring plates ready!

      I could NOT be more happy with my progress! I feel amazing and I’m grateful to have this tool!

      None Scale Victory: My rings on my finger are spinning!

        Sabrina, you are doing so well. I'm truly inspired and equally excited for you. The view you shared is breathtaking and relaxing, I'm in love with the ocean. Please keep sharing. Where did you find the trackers and how do I access them? My date is approaching the 31st, I'm in liquid diet mode. I see my surgeon on the 17th. Any advice?

      2. SabrinaGoddess

        You got this sis! You totally do.
        The ocean is so peaceful. Some days I get blessed with seeing whales, dolphins and seals. It is truly amazing.

        You can go to under our name at the top left section and click "TICKERS" you can create them there. Then when you lose weight you just go to "my surgery" and change your weight and they will adjust.

        On the liquids, do sugar free pop-cycles. They are more like a treat than a liquid and they count as 2 ounces each! Liquids not the funnest part of our journey but who cares....LOL. I do like the IsoPure clear liquid protein drinks, you can get them at GNC. The flavors are ok. I also LOVED Kettle and FIre Broth and Epic Broths so I drank them all the time, it's good for you. It's BONE BROTH. Kinda pricey but the good stuff usually is.

      3. Krimsonbutterflies

        Thank you for the encouragement/positivity!!! I'm going to conquer this liquid phase, moment by moment. I also appreciate the mini tutorial of how to get the ticker. I'm thinking of starting status updates after my pre-op visit with the surgeon on Friday. I really enjoy the personal perspective and experience being shared, without feeling like the thread is being dominated. I look forward to how each person is approaching the wls lifestyle. Thank you lady, good night. Happy Whale watching. I love seeing the dolphins at Hermosa Beach.
