But the temptation is also there to swallow what you’re chewing.

Personally, I think chewing & spitting isn’t the best idea. I know some people do but I never did. We’re put on the staged diet for a reason - so as not to damage our new digestive system before it is fully healed. Of course it is your decision.

It is a good reason to pass cooking duties onto another family member. Lol!

Congrats on your surgery.

I agree. During my first post op holidays, I still did the cooking, but had other family members do the taste testing. You really only have to get through one holiday season - by this time next year, you will be able to enjoy all the healthy foods, but in much smaller quantities. You will learn to cook in healthier ways, eliminating the sugars and a lot of the fat. You will use more vegetables, cooked healthier, and fruits will play a more important role in Desserts. Just hang in there for the next month and you will be fine. The best part is that this is one holiday season that you will LOSE weight instead of gaining!!!!! :)

I didn’t do it guys 🤤 I just had the Turkey broth. All good.

Good job resisting temptation! That must have been difficult. I live alone, so I have it easier than most when it comes to not having to be around food I can’t eat, let alone having to cook it for other people. I almost cried the first week I went back to work and my boss brought in takeout from my favorite local restaurant and put a delicious meal I couldn’t eat on my desk (nobody at work knows I had weight loss surgery). You, and all those who cook food for your families when you’re on a liquid diet, are so strong!
