Family Cooking w/ Bypass & combined diets



Recommended Posts

Hello, my husband had Gastric Bypass in mid-November & is currently on mostly soft foods. We are working on trying to cook our meals together for things we can both eat & feed our two kids, as well. I prefer the Keto diet for myself to lose the weight I need to lose also, which is not optimal for the bypass diet, at this point I don't think. Has anyone experienced trying to cook meals that everyone can eat or is it easiest just to cook individually based on needs?

I made separate meals for the fam. It was easier.

Mind you, my own meals were not very varied as I basically ate salad & grilled chicken for the most part and making separate meals for me was a no-brainer: keep salad greens in the fridge and grill up chicken in batches to help myself to as needed.

Even before my surgery I've had to cook two meals--I'm a vegetarian and hubby is a carnivore. I've gotten to be a very good short order cook! Now it's easier-anything I cook for myself can be divided and frozen into 4 or 5 meals so I just have to zap it while I cook for DH.

      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.
