Hi, I feel like I'm having the same issue. I can eat too much imho. I'm 2 wks post vsg. I weigh my food and have found that depending on the density of food or what it is I can eat 5-6oz at a time. Isnt that way too much? I try to stay in the 2-3oz range but this particular meal was ground chix alfredo w mini penne. I hope I havent stretched my pouch. Any others who are surprised with the amount they can eat and not be stuffed or sick?

Your at 2 weeks PO and already eating carbs? Does vsg not need time to heal before introducing meals back in? Is this your dietitian/dr’s plan? I have the sleeve so maybe it’s different. But I’m supposed to be eating Protein now. I just started adding fish, eggs, avocado, soft food stage. Two weeks post op I was on thick liquids still. Are you getting all your protein and Fluid intake in?

Do you mean that you're eating too much or the wrong foods? It's so important that you follow your dietitian's plan for the first 6 months to a year. You need 75-80 g of Protein, 600-800 calories, 64 or more ounces of Water. That's it. You don't need carbs or Fiber or sugars. Keep portions to 1/2 cup even if your stomach could handle more. Don't do it.

This is one of those posts that seem almost impossible to believe, and quite frankly rather hard to comment on without sounding harsh, but here goes. Are you saying that you ate 6oz of probably one of the worst WLS meals on the planet earth, only 2 weeks out of surgery?

How many calories are 6oz of chicken, Pasta and cheese ? 500+/-? If so, I assume that one serving was all you ate for the entire day as it really doesn't matter what size your pouch is, if you are going to fill it with crap.

I say all that only to point out how seriously you have to take this entire process if you really want to be successful. The WLS was just a tool, you now have to master using that tool.

best of luck!

It will pass i am 7 months post op and still to this day have a very hard eating - My Doc said normal just ride it out and keep trying. There is no way i could eat a 5 oz meat or chicken - So i would not panic to much it does get better - As time goes on you will be able to eat a wider variety of foods,

To this day i eat very very small amounts of solid foods and rely on shakes and Soft foods
