Hello everyone! So I’m on my 3rd week post op, and am curious to know everyone’s different full feeling signs? I want to be aware of any full sign before I’m full. So any help is greatly appreciated 🌺

I have to measure/weigh because you can eat for 20 more minutes after you're full without feeling full. BUT I do get a sensation like a wall coming down that seems to mean, you're full, stop right now.

This^^^^^ best to measure and not get overfilled. Once you are too full it is a very miserable feeling.

Before surgery I never took a deep breath durning the time I was eating. I’ve found that now when I’m done my body forces me to take a deep breath . I still measure and weigh everything. But it took me awhile to figure out exactly just what my bodies new “ you are full stop eating” sign was.

One month out--don't have a sign yet. I measure out one half cup of food and eat it slowly til it's gone. Sometimes I eat a few bites of something and it just doesn't taste good so I stop eating, but it's not a matter of fullness. I'm hoping I develop a sign!

Well I ate a deviled egg today, and my chest got tight at the very end. Not a good feeling at all!

Me, too - got chest tightness and it felt like food was sitting way too high up - like in my esophagus. I'm carefully measuring everything by volume and learned the hard way to start with about 2 oz of a high Protein food, eat super slowly, chew thoroughly, assess before each bite if I need this, and absolutely stop if it feels at all tight in my chest which is a sign for me of one bite too many. If I feel okay after that 2 oz then I try another 1 oz of protein.

It was absolutely miserable the one time (hopefully the only time) I ate too much and too fast - I had to lie down and it took about an hour to feel better. I'd sat down to eat my dinner having made 3 oz of protein plus some veg (before I learned not to make so much at once) and got an upsetting phone call, after which mindful eating went out the window and believe me, I suffered for it.

I get a lot of veggies in my morning green smoothie but now am eating a small cooked veg portion (2 oz) maybe an hour after my protein portion at lunch and dinner. This is helping me get good nutrients and Fiber without sacrificing the necessary protein - I don't want to add back in another Protein Shake. I'm supposed to wait a few weeks more before trying salad.

I've heard if you take a bite and realize before swallowing that it may be one too many then spit it out. When in doubt, spit it out. Sounds gross but if with people you can either excuse yourself and head for a bathroom or discretely put it into a paper napkin (if available.) Believe me, it's better to spit it out then to suffer. Especially if out at a special dinner or something it would be awful to feel that pain and ruin the evening.

2 C fresh spinach (packed well), 1 "purely inspired organic protein" shake (20g protein) plus 1/2 scoop "Pure Protein 100% Whey" Protein Powder (another 12g protein), 1/4 C plain unsweetened kefir, a little ground cinnamon, 1 tsp. unsweetened cocoa, and very little frozen fruit for some added flavor such as 1" of a frozen banana plus 1 cube pineapple, or 1 slice peach and a few raspberries. Too much fruit = way too many carbs. You can substitute some other greens such a kale or baby lettuces. I just use the spinach. Whip it up to a liquid - I use a Ninja bullet.

I'd love to see other's green smoothie recipes if they want to post them :)

It took a few months to even out, but my full trigger is in my throat - I literally feel like I’m hitting capacity. It means I can have pretty much one more bite (if I really want it) then I’m done. If I try more than that, it’s right in the edge of regurgitation.

What’s most remarkable to me is that other people have a “full signal” from birth. No wonder average weight people get frustrated and tell overweight people they should just stop eating - for them it’s not just a natural feeling, it’s UNNATURAL to keep eating past that trigger. As it is for me now. So they just think overweight people are uncontrollable gluttons who perversely eat past capacity even though it’s hurting them.

Very odd to realize that what I used to think of as casual cruelty (“well if you don’t want to be fat just STOP!”) is actually more like someone getting irritated that another person can’t differentiate blue from green, and assuming that person is just being stupid or stubborn, that they WON’T admit there’s a difference between the colors. But neither party realizes that it’s possible to be color blind.
