Foods that stretch stomach



Recommended Posts

Hi ,

My surgeon and dietician only told me to avoid fizzy stuff, nothing else. I am a recent post op so I am a bit paranoid about stretching my stomach.

I just read somewhere else here that rice expands ur stomach. That really sucks, I am asian so rice is like a staple food to me. But I dont wanna eat it if it means stretching.

What else causes stretching? Pasta!?

I think it's more chronic overeating that will eventually stretch it - not necessarily any one thing.

It's not certain foods that stretch your stomach, it's the overreating and portions. Certain foods, however, might be rejected by your stomach. I can barely eat rice or Pasta, no more than 2 spoonfulls/forkfulls or else I'll get "the foamies" where I throw up mucus because my stomach doesn't like it. But my surgeon said it would take A LOT for someone to stretch their stomach.

Ditto for what GradyCat said.
