Post Op Phase 3 BBQ 😩



Recommended Posts

Hi all! I am new to this forum and looking for some support. I’m having my sleeve surgery on July 26. I am hosting a bbq pool party for family (first time we’re seeing each other post COVID) but I will still be in phase 3. What are some good food choices that don’t scream “I just had bariatric surgery”? I was thinking deviled eggs with light mayo would work…. Any other thoughts? Thanks!

phase 3 for me means Soft meals.

As the host, are you supposed to provide the main dish(es)? Or are you just providing a place to gather?

Turkey chili

soft fruit salad (peaches, pears apricots, bananas, seedless melons)

Canned chicken salad (provide rolls for sandwiches)

baked or poached white fish, shrimp, meatballs

cooked vegetables

Sausages & meat patties. Easy bbq meats that are soft & you don’t need to eat them with bread rolls. I still have trouble with char grilled meats & vegetables even at 25 months out because of the dryness of the char so tread carefully. Grilled prawns should be ok or fish in foil cooked over flames. Just keep to soft, moist foods & you’ll be fine.

Enjoy your time with your family.

I highly recommend ground or minced meat shaped around skewers and grilled. They are traditionally called Adana kebab or koftas.

These are usually super soft Protein options and BBQ friendly since they are normally grilled anyway. Have fun with your family and congratulations in advance.

A couple of recipes in the links below;

Was gonna say much that was mentioned above, skewers with various meats and veggies, (sugar free) BBQ chicken, Italian Sausages & Peppers, Kielbasa, burgers and hot dogs should be fine too. Aldi has some great Keto bun options if you want to have Buns for others and yourself. There is Pasta made of lentils, chickpeas etc. that you could use to make a macaroni salad. fruit tray. Veggie tray. Lots of options.

      I hit my stall ALREADY 🤷🏽‍♀️ been at 300 for almost a week. I’m not worried about it though, because I know that my body is healing. I’m not in a rush, I loss 30 pounds since surgery which was 3 weeks ago. I’m just going with the flow and staying positive. 😁

        It's very common. Give your body a chance to "catch up" with its new reality and the weight loss will start again. Hang in there, I know it can be frustrating!

      First Orangetheory class back after surgery! #347 for me. Determined to take things easy- especially those ab exercises. Looking forward to hitting #350 this week.

        Hi, I have been having a look around the site, I cant find anywhere that you can delete your account yourself, However in the rules it indicates that staff can delete accounts so maybe use the "contact us" tab at the very bottom of the page and ask for assistance there.

      I loss 19 pounds my first 7 days post op 🙌🏽 (Water weight or real weight.. weight is weight to me.. I’ll take it lol) I make sure I keep my water with me 24.7 and I walk every chance I get. I cook dinner for my kids with no problems. I have zero cravings!  By next week I should be in the 200’s. Haven’t been there since high school 🥲

        I had my surgery 11/17 and hit 299 this morning! :) Rooting for you!

      Well, starting day 2 after surgery. Felling hunger pains again this morning and nausea, no vomiting. I think the hunger pains are coming from my stomach and not my pouch. Think I will call their hotline and speak with them about it. It is not terribly bad but it is uncomfortable. I do not regret getting the surgery though. I expected some discomfort right after, I just didn't expect the hunger pains.
