So lots of people are saying certain foods don't sit well with them or they only manage 2oz. Well I have tried loads of different foods and nothing bad has happened also I can eat way more than 2oz and still nothing happens. I'm beginning to think the surgery was fake and they just knocked me out and woke me up again. Is this normal.

I've lost 20lbs in 6 weeks I'm so happy with the loss. But have had no issues with any food even spices. Which is great. But I don't know my food limit. I've never thrown up or anything. I guess my underlying question is am I going to stretch my new tiny stomach. I can easy eat two weetabix or around 4oz of food no problem. Other people seem to be having much smaller portions xxx

Well, just because you CAN take in larger amounts of food, doesn't mean you HAVE TO ❤️

Maybe just portion out your food to the required volume and just eat that? There is no real need to see/test how much you can get in....especially if you aren't hungry.

BTW, congrats on the 20lb loss so far!

Don't get caught up chasing the full feeling. Eat the prescribed quantity per meal that's appropriate for your stage of healing. You've not posted any info about yourself, so it's hard to tell how far out you are. I'm 2 years out today and I still measure my food and weigh it! I could eat more than I should.

And my surgeon said today that you CAN stretch your stomach out by eating too much food at meals...

Good to know! But what if you're not full? could you still do damage? Im assuming if you're not overeating then you're okay...

I am in the same boat. I’m 7 weeks post VSG. I can eat more than 4 oz. I noticed that the denser your food is the less you can eat. So I try to start with food that I have to chew and finish with slider food. I do measure my food and do not eat more than 4-6 oz.

I lost 36 lbs my first 6 weeks after surgery then 20 lbs my second 6 weeks. We're supposed to have no bread until after 4 months, or Pasta or rice. I do sometimes as of late, though (no rice yet). My stomach pays for it by feeling achy in the low abdomen and feeling full even through the night and into the next day. I have to take laxatives. So don't follow me but DO follow the written guide from your surgeon. 1 cup at 1 year and the rest of your life. Increase 1/4 cup every 3 months till 1 year. I do throw up when I overfill my stomach. I feel much better. Always after Taco Bell.

I have always been able to tolerate any foods. Here’s something that may help, some foods are more filling like chicken or meat whereas what can be considered “slider” foods go through us more easily and we can eat much more of them. I’m not sure what a weetabix is but maybe it’s more of a slider food.< /p>

I was told by my nutritionist that I could have carbonated beverages after the sleeve (the only one that I ever drink is diet ginger ale). She said the reason some prohibit it is that some people get stomach pains when drinking soda. I am curious as to which of you react badly to it and which of you tolerate it well? I can live without it, it’s just nice having an alternative to flavored water.

      I am almost 8 weeks post op and I am down to 157 from 202. I have been struggling with nausea but not vomiting. Anyone else having this happen?

        After having horrendous nausea I did some reading and it seems quite common. Especially if you have ruled out eating too fast/too big a mouthful. Also drinking too soon will make you feel sick. I now take 2 antiemetics to help with my nausea, hopefully yours is just that you need to slow down eating etc

        What state are you in????

      Officially no longer over weight! Goal #1 reached! I'm now under 80kgs (176 lbs) at 179cm (5'10") and 10 months post-op and am over the moon. My weight at 79.9 kgs (176 lbs) gives me a BMI of 24.9 which means that I have a normal weight! OMG.
      I still want to lose about 16 lbs more though in order to get safely into the middle range to insure against that little regain that happens. The I have maintenence in front of me as well.
      BUT I have hit my first goal. Yeah me!!!

        Fantastic! That's such a great goal to reach and one I hope to get to this year as well.

      I had my gastric sleeve done September 10, 2020... I started out 330# before surgery.... I'm down to 260# now... I've been stalled out for over two months now.... I exercise when I can (Bad back/knees)... I follow my diet , get my protein and drink my water... But still not losing any weight... I've done everything I can think of to break the stall.... Even went back to liquid diet....  Sometimes I think this was a mistake having the surgery...

        sorry to hear that don't feel down. Maybe a reset meaning something new. I am in the process of having the surgery a second time. I had Lapland in 2012 removed in 2018 and I have gained everything back and some. When I stalled on lapband I had to do something new for me I joined a free boot camp and Zumba and then boom dropped 38 pounds in 2 months. I know you said bad back and knees so find something with your limits. But I think try something new I stalled for 8 months
