2 years & Still struggling



Recommended Posts

I'm so tired and stress, it's been 2 years and I still can not eat properly, I feel blotting and disgust in every meal. I can't go to restaurants anymore because I end up vomiting or with lots of acids even testing a bit, I guess is because of the fat used?. The only thing that I can eat are Beans, rice, Soups I been surviving eating bread but end up gaining weight. I became vegan because I can not eat meat anymore... I don't know what to do. What's your experience?

Hey Judy. I am so sorry to hear that you're struggling. I really wish it was some advice that I could offer you. I am just beginning my process. I joined so that I can make a firm decision on if getting this surgery is the right thing for me. I can't imagine what you're going through but I pray that you can find a resolution. I have read a lot on this topic and have read many blogs and forums. Do you feel like you are overeating or is it just that your body only feels comfortable with certain types of food being in your system?

what kind of surgery did you have? And have you talked these symptoms over with your surgeon's office? They may be able to help. I'm sorry, I hope this is resolved for you soon.

Which surgery did you have done? I am only two weeks post gastric sleeve and my diet has been limited but I would certainly suggest speaking to your surgeon or dietitian. So many Protein options besides meat out there but bread is the one thing that I would think would be detrimental to your weight and your insides.........Dont give up, keep asking questions until you get answers.

I'm sorry to hear that you're struggling. I am two years post sleeve surgery myself. I still can't eat tortillas or bread without getting the "foamies" and steak is too dense for me. Pasta and potatoes I can only eat 2-3 bites without getting full. I do really well on meats and Proteins. Have you talked to your surgeon? Maybe call their office and see what it could be.

I'm only 6 weeks out from a bypass so can't really offer much advice, but could you maybe speak to a bariatric dietitian and see if they can offer advice? I think you may be right about restaurant meals, because I've worked in a restaurant before and the amount of oil they used to cook (and the cheap quality of the oil) is a bit of an eye opener. Hope you manage to resolve it.

Thank you everyone for answering!!! I was having a bad moment this week. I felt extremely lonely with this problem. I have not met anyone that has done it so far or could at least comprehend my pain. Thank you again!

Thank you so much for your Support, I can not say that I repented it I do it. because I lost a lot of weight, but If I only could do it by myself without the help I definitely would think it twice. It's been a rough time, I lost all appetite and I used to enjoy food so much, my favorite thing was wine and cheese & pizza. I can not eat those anymore. but I feel awesome with the new me. I need to keep learning this new lifestyle and foremost love myself even more.

I can relate to what you're going through. I don't know about you but I am an emotional eater. So when I am stressed or feel depressed or sad I run to food for emotional support. It's a huge problem. When you think About your relationship with food it's tramatic in a sense. An emotional relationship with food, take that away and u can feel empty and alone. We have issues with food just how people who drink have issues with alochol. Try and figure out that relationship u have with food and I think it will get better.

Hi! YES! Same thing Pasta and meat is way too much. And Protein I'm so tired of the shakes I tried them all in every flavor you can think of. Fruits are great for me but I can only eat a cup but calories are not enough so I have to choose nuts or Beans.

I got a gastric sleeve surgery and I have talked to numerous nutritionist but I haven't found the one. All the diets are just not that ”real” for me because they can't relate to what I'm experiencing I just was a little frustrated this week I need to keep finding answers. Thank you so much for your support!
