Steamed Chicken



Recommended Posts

Question for everyone. A lot of times I am on the road for hours working. My question is that in times when I do not have a chance to go home and have a meal would steamed chicken be ok from a Chinese restaurant? I know of course no sauce but wonder what everyone’s option is on this. Would imagine it would be ok but just curious.

as long as you've been cleared for solid foods and as long as you can tolerate chicken, yes. Some people have a hard time with chicken the first few weeks or months.

Yep. Make sure they don't "velvet" it with a slurry of cornstarch. But steamed fish, chicken, shrimp were my go-tos in the early days at restaurants!!

Just checking, but according to your side profile you were sleeved 10 days ago? Has your team cleared you for solid foods?

P.S. At 10 days post op I was just carrying around Protein Powder and a shaker bottle in my purse...

try the egg drop Soup first. If I was just starting on solid Proteins, and had to eat steamed chicken from a Chinese take out, I would get the egg drop soup to moisten each bite really well. But be sure you are cleared for chicken first.

Once you are on solids it might be fine BUT like others have said try it at home first. I remember reading here about people struggling with chicken and I was like 'ooh weird, I won't though'. :rolleyes:

You guessed it the first time I had chicken breast it got stuck, 2nd time it got stuck and that was chewing it to nothing with gravy so I then decided to try thigh meat instead and it was fine.

Always try new foods at home first tho coz you don't want to be ill when you are out working :)

      Met with my surgeon yesterday and he said that he is so excited for me and the progress that will be made! Waiting for insurance pre-auth and then will get everything scheduled!

      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!

      I am now 10 days post op and I am down 16lbs. I had an allergic reaction to the glue my doctor used so I am still sore and trying to keep moving to not get stiff.

        Hello congratulations on your new journey I am 5 days post op and still trying to get the hang of things. I’m supposed to return back to work in a few days but still sore as well. Do you have any advice for me being 5 days post opt?

      Hello,  I am brand new on here. 
      The doctor qualified me yesterday for the surgery, so now I have to take 12 weeks of education classes and then he said they will schedule the surgery 4-6 weeks after I complete the classes. 
      I am excited to start this new journey.

      Am at the half-way mark of the six month pre-op program.  So excited!  Got clearance from psychologist this morning, so I scheduled my surgery consult for early March.  It is becoming more real now.  Have lost 18 pounds so far, since I began this journey on 12/18/19.
