it was awhile before I could eat salads and other raw vegetables - maybe four months or so? I could eat cooked ones a lot sooner, but I can't remember when. Someone not as far out probably remembers...

My diet cleared me for vegetables on day 43. But I had my first salad two days ago. I have had sauteed spinach and cooked broccoli with no issues!

I had to wait 8 weeks before any veggies were allowed! And I have an organic vegetable garden! It was killing me! Soooo...... I got my greens (lots of different kinds), put them in the blender/Ninja with some Water and made a green slurry that I strained and then ran through coffee filter paper. I added my "green water" to everything - my water bottle, my smoothies, my Soups. My doc was mad at first when she saw my water bottle, but I showed her that it was a CLEAR liquid which was allowed, and then she agreed I could drink it. (Lot better for me than Crystal Lite or artificially flavored/colored/sweetened drinks.) So that is what I did. I felt like I got my healthy phytonutrients and all the good Vitamins, but without the Fiber that was forbidden.

Brocolli, for some reason, still upsets my tum a bit. Well cooked or shredded Brussels sprouts are OK. Even at 10 months out, I have to chew salad very slowly and very well.

        You are doing this for YOU not anyone else!! Do not worry about what others think, it is how you think and feel about yourself that counts.

      New found appreciation for you all!
      So Im back in the US to take care of my aging father and it seems like more than ever that being bigger is the norm everywhere here. I cant say that Ive been the best, healthiest me at the moment, but I think you all Americans are doing GREAT to even be working towards the goal of getting healthier in face of all this temptation (even if you are a "slow loser"). So give all yourselves a pat on the back!
