Gastric Bypass peeps, how did you deal with these ingredients post op?



Recommended Posts

Hey!

I'm scheduled for surgery (gastric bypass) in February. I've been relying on Protein Shakes and some ketogenic friendly sweeteners as Meal Replacements to get use to drinking my calories instead of eating them.

I wanna know if you've tried any of these ingredients post op and how they made you feel:

- vanilla Premier Protein

- unsweetened cocoa powder

- Swerve sugar replacement

- blended strawberry, blackberries and blueberries (no added sugar)

-Isopure unflavored powder

-unsweetened almond milk

-black Beans (not in smoothies, just in general, mashed)

Thanks! Happy New Year to you all

I did not have any problems with any of those ingredients. I've used everything on that list except Isopure.

I had no problems with those foods, either. I did not try almond milk or Isopure (I did GENEPRO occasionally for a few months, mixed into refried Beans, etc.).

I haven't tried swerve or almond milk, but I eat a lot of artificial sweeteners and eat whole almonds.

Are you asking for right after surgery? Or for the long term?

I eat a LOT of refried Beans, both black beans and kidney beans. Right when I got off of liquids, these were the easiest for me to eat. I had some yesterday after I threw up the night before and was told to rest my pouch.

      I feel like I've finally gotten past the biggest hurdle. Surgery date is September 6th, the day after Labor Day, and yesterday I got my insurance approval letter. I've followed everything they've told me to do, and I've even lost 30 lbs on my own since hubby had to change his diet for diabetes. No worries now about having to do 4 weeks of the liver shrinking diet instead of 2. On my initial visit, if I had gained just 5lbs I would have had to do 4 weeks. It's getting closer. Just 2 more months to wait.

        Although the prep work took energy, I found the biggest hurdle was post-operative. The first 48 hrs were extremely uncomfortable. I did an overnight and trying to down the liquids, Tylenol, and especially the barium was rough. Thankfully though, I got away with only having to have 1 belly injection after surgery. Needless are not my thing.

      I am looking for people to connect with that are 4-5 years out. Many of the support sights I go to are all newbies. And while I enjoyed that when i first had my surgery and found it useful, I am looking to exchange ideas with folks that are out a few years. I am slowly gaining weight back and losing my excitement. I don't want that!

      How do you stay focused? I'm struggling a bit the past three days.  All I want is sweets and carbs.  I have no clue what changed but for some reason I'm craving hard.  I'm literally dreaming about food and when I wake up, I'm thinking about my next meal.  I'm not "hungry" but so munchy.  I'm trying to stay focused, busy, exercise and the likes but this looking struggle is getting to be so hard.  I meet with my nutritionist tomorrow and I'm so hopeful she has some advice.  My protein intake is great, liquids on point, even throwing in some raw veggies and berries to curb the sweet/carb craving.  Thoughts?
