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

Recommended Posts


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.

      Kind of nervous, as expected. One month out from surgery!

      😫 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 .
