So - does everyone vomit ? I mean 2-3 times a week , it just hits me. My nose begins to run and I vomit- during my meal time or right after. its slimey and gross but when do you worry as to be honest I am not minding it at all...... chicken and I keep trying to consummate and well most the time we dont mix ???? I play with the other Proteins and they like me really well.

For many people, a runny nose or hiccups is a sign that you have already eaten too much. I also get a gurgle in my stomach.

I went through a stage similar to what you are describing. I THOUGHT I was eating slowly enough and chewing thoroughly enough. When I examined closely what I was actually doing, it turns out I was chewing very well but I was still eating too fast and therefore, eating too much before I realized it. I had to make a very conscious effort to pay attention while I was eating and eat less than I thought I wanted or needed. chicken was involved more than once even though I had successfully eaten it often before. Another mistake I was making was not waiting long enough to drink after I ate. Drinking before meal time does not seem to have an effect for me. But drinking too soon afterwards seemed to contribute to my problem. And my immediate reaction when I start to feel uncomfortable, was to drink something to "wash it down." Big mistake, that only makes it worse.

a lot of people seem to have trouble with chicken. At least the first few weeks or months. Maybe back off of that and try again later on?

thank you for the input - i do get hiccups when i am full. I have to figure it out - so i will go slower -i chew forever so that cant be it. maybe i am too quick in between bites. it is crazy. it is not from too much food i can say that as everything is in a bowl that is a ramekin at 4 oz. it fits ! lol

You explained very well what my problem is: I chew forever but am way too fast between bites.

Aaah the foamies. Better than a full out vomit but still unpleasant. Our tummies can be pretty fussy to begin & you may find you can eat something without issue one day but the next no way. Give that food a break & try it again in a couple of weeks.

Eating slowly is really important. I still eat slowly: 30 - 60 minutes for a meal depending upon what it is. What I found helped was putting down my cutlery between bites & sitting back from the table. I also asked myself if I needed (not wanted) that next bite to help ensure I didn’t overeat. I still do these things.

I also find dry foods cause issues like the foamies or a gagging choking thing so I try to ensure my meals are moist or have some sort of sauce or gravy with them. I tend to steam my vegetables so they add moisture too.

If you like chicken, try the more tender (& flavoursome) thigh meat & not breast which is drier & more coarse in texture.

We all have these quirky or strange things that happen to let us know we’ve eaten too much, too quickly, something our tummies don’t like, etc. It will take a little time to work out your signals & then modify what & how you eat accordingly.

Good luck.

Yes i have a problem eating chicken too and if I eat it too fast. It causes me to throw up. My nose runs when I am full, ill get hiccups or feel like I have something stuck in my throat.

      😫 Hi, I’m new to bariatricpal! I am 8 days post op VSG. I am struggling very badly. I’ve been so emotional because I feel like I’m doing wrong. I’m afraid I’ll eat or drink to fast or eat the wrong thing. I’ve been on Pinterest and YouTube constantly for help. I have followed all of my surgeons and dieticians instructions. I just don’t know if my body is getting enough. Today, I am weak, sore, and just exhausted.

        It passes!! Everyone goes though it! It is a short term emotion! I'm almost five years post op! You made the right decision! Don't focus on the change right now. Try to entertain your mind. What your feeling only last about a week. It's related to your body adjusting and you mind adjusting. You got this!!

        I agree with Tara it's hard right now but it gets better do t forget your hormones will be all over the place you may even feel depressed. Be kind to yourself reach out and talk to people how you are feeling .

      I know BMI is not the best indication of things in certain situations but I'm happy to share I'm out of the obesity class III category. I'm in class II now. Just 47 more lbs until I'm officially "overweight". Haven't been just "overweight" since I was a kid. "laughs"
