Almost six months post op



Recommended Posts

Hi there. I am reaching the six month mark post op RYGB. I really struggled with a long period of a stall since early December. I did lose my way with eating over that period of time but I have been doing better over the last two weeks. I decided to stop eating sugar free pudding, coconut ice milk, Mac and cheese cups and crackers with hummus. I’ve been eating whole grains such as farro and sorghum made in a porridge with almond milk, blueberries, vanilla and cinnamon. I used a Splenda/ brown sugar combination to sweeten the porridge with 1 tablespoon of maple Syrup. The sorghum porridge is very filling and very high in Fiber. I’ve been eating lots of poached fish. So far I am making tilapia or mahi mahi. Still not able to tolerate chicken and I am considering giving up meats all together. I order an instant pot and I am going to start making plant based meals. I haven’t weighed myself but I see a change in my overall shape. I’m confident that my weight will continue to drop as long as I am eating the right foods.

Yeah, meats are hard. I'm two years post-op and I still can't eat dense meat like steak or pork chops. Good idea giving up the mac and cheese cups/probably not one of the best choices. Concentrate on getting in your Protein. You've GOT THIS!
