How many years after surgery could you eat a plate of spaghetti without feeling nauseous?



Recommended Posts

A good Pasta alternative is made by great low carb bread company. They make elbow macaroni, spaghetti, rotini, Fettuccini, penne, orzo rice pasta,

for example 2 ounces of spaghetti is 110 calories, 19 Grams carbs, 12 grams Fiber, 18 grams Protein. It’s made with pea protein isolate. Oat fiber. Wheat fiber. Egg whites. Wheat gluten. Semolina.

they make bread, Bagels, Pizza Crust also.

there are always healthy alternatives and it depends what your new pouch can handle. As well as what foods will keep you from falling back into old bad habits.

I used to buy from www.Netrition.com since I’d buy a lot of low carb products.

Probably anything in the bread or pasta, even low carb is better for maintenance. Although I do on occasion have a protein pasta from BariatricPal. Like a creamy chicken pasta Soup type thing. But it’s portion controlled. And has protein.

i do finally use those little dishes that came in our dish set and have little bowls I use as well.

No, the experience is not that similar. Because with the sleeve, you're far less likely to suffer from dumping syndrome. But thanks for your input.

I'm a sleeve.

I totally dump.

For what it's worth, the same calories of Pasta causes a lower release of glucose and resultant insulin spike than does the same calories of bread. Bread has tiny holes and the enzymes in your saliva start breaking down the starch immediately. Chew a bite of bread for 2 minutes and you will start to taste the sugar that has been converted from the starch. Pasta is much more dense and it takes longer for it to break down. You would have to chew it a lot longer to taste the sugar.

I might try out those edamame noodles and see if they suit my stomach better.

Regarding the "sitting heavy in the stomach" you might not be happier with them. They contain quite a bit of Protein. I personally like the Explore brand (in fact that's the only brand of bean Pasta I like, screw the rest).

My opinion being unsolicited bc Im VSG, I’m still commenting. Dumping aside, just stomach real estate considered, at 7 months I don’t suspect I will ever eat a plate of spaghetti again. And I’m glad. I didn’t do this so I could go back to eating that much.
I can have a bite or two at this point and be very satisfied and full but not “sick.” I can’t speak to “dumping” but I do get pretty ill from sugar.
I used edamame Pasta last time I made spaghetti and I liked it. Everyone else tolerated it🤣

I actually like the more "chewy" texture better than that of real Pasta, lol.

Fun story, had a bit of spagetti bolognese today because of this tread. It didn't at all taste what it used to. It was just...bland. Was done after two bites. Pretty boring stuff with no texture.

I agree. The husband didn’t care for it but he didn’t dislike it enough to make his own, so he will live.

That might be exactly how my husband feels about tempeh.

One year out and I still don't eat Pasta and very little rice (both because I don't crave them and try to avoid the carbs). I love sashimi for the Protein, but I find that a normal single serving of sashimi is too much for me and I only eat half at one sitting. (I have actually starting making my own sashimi by buying sushi-grade salmon and thin-slicing it--much more bang for the buck!)

I still find most Chinese food too heavy--and I don't eat the rice. I do enjoy a small serving of Thai green curry with chicken as a treat from time to time, which was a pre-surgery favorite of mine. I love most fresh fruit but haven't been able to enjoy raw vegetables at all.

Unsolicited (sleeve pt also).... but i found that just eating the sauce was satisfying for me. My husband and I were invited to a friend's house and they cooked bolognese. I only at the about 4 bites of sauce.... I do the same with things that one should or normally eat rice with... Beans, stew, gumbo... I just leave the rice out. Rice is nothing but a filler. I do eat a bite or two of cauliflower rice here and there... like last night. I cooked roast with carrots and potatos....instead of rice... i ate two bites of cal. rice. It was just as good. a couple of nights ago my husband cooked stuffed peppers... made with caul. rice.... delish... i am still eating on that one pepper... in fact, i brought the last 1/4 to work today.

14 months rny post op and I split two rolls the other night with my wife and ate one too many pieces. Everyone is different. You won’t be eating two or three rolls alone any more but pieces here and there are no problem. Eat to live not live to eat.

      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.

      So months ago, the Kid thought it would be funny to create an account on here and troll me with it.  Figured out it was her a few days later, and had a laugh about it.  She's been trolling me on it ever since.
      This morning I went on to post something and realized after the fact that I posted using her account as she was on my laptop last night 🙄
      Trolling over, Kid.
