How many tacos one year out?



Recommended Posts

I have been able to eat more than expected at every given stage since my sleeve so I have to measure my portions still. At one year out I have been eating around one serving of most things. I just made dinner though and those hard taco shells from old El Paso seem pretty big for the serving size to be TWO shells?? I ate one and don’t feel full (but I never do). I am just curious if other sleevers that are over a year out would have more than one?? I guess the amount of meat you get in one shell isn’t much (I didn’t weight it).

I wish I can weigh in in only 10 days post op But I did want to say I thought I was getting in more liquids post op than I should but now that I’m weighing everything I’m really not. Maybe weighting what you ate if you can eyeball it and recreate it to get a better idea of how much you actually ate? So nice knowing I might be able to eat tacos again! Lol

I had surgery in July 2020 and last night was able to eat just one of small sized soft tacos. I was VERY full!

I ate 1 pollo asado crispy taco from chipotle today. It was pretty tasty. At $3.50, it was a bargain. I like when places have menu items that aren’t huge and are reasonably priced. It kept me full until dinner.

I’m gonna have to check out chipotle. We have one but it’s kinda in a bad spot driving wise it’s not convenient so I’ve never been.

I have been checking out the chipotle website since I read this. It’s weird that they don’t have hamburger as a meat? ? I like chicken and steak tacos too but that is odd. Now I Am craving this. Lol

Do you have an instant pot or similar? I do a lot of chipotle style stuff in mine and it's super easy.

I do have an instapot but I must admit I only know how to steam in it. I haven’t played around with it yet.

Ok can you buy a can of chipotles in Adobo sauce? If so, you can make amazing pulled beef or other meats quickly and cheaply.

Are they super spicy? I don’t really like spicy.

You can use only a little, or even just the sauce. You should also pick up a bottle of liquid smoke. Then you just throw the meat in, nice chicken stock, liquid smoke, Adobo sauce if you like and come back in 6 hours.

I will have to make it when we will be having people over because my husband won’t eat it and I eat so little. What setting would I want to use?

Should have a "stew" setting but it doesn't really matter - low and slow and enough water/stock to cover things. I do it with a nice chunk of meat, pull it apart and then freeze in portions.

Cool. I will save this and try it when my nephews come to visit. They will love it I’m sure. Thank you.

      2 weeks & 5 days post op and I'm doing great
      Gatorade w/protein makes me gag now. I think from having so much of it.
      I had the ricotta bake for a few days. I'm in the puree stage but rotisserie chicken, chicken meatballs, cold cuts, & plain tuna don't bother me.
      I had a plain old fashioned peppermint and it made me nauseous...

      Hi there!  Just wanted to gain some perspective.  Out of anyone here who had the gastric bypass, can you give me info on your journey?  How much weight did you lose in the first month, 3 months, 6 months after surgery?  I'm working on getting my clearances so that I can have surgery in late summer.  My friend, who just had GB, told me "your new life doesn't start the day of your surgery, but right now, so take care of yourself!"  So, I'm trying.  But hearing what others have experienced will give me some perspective and I'm big on that kind of thing.

        I lost 25 pounds in 3 months before surgery and your friend is right. Putting off losing weight till surgery date just reminded me of all the excuses I made before. I'll wait till Monday to start or after the holidays.

        I'm 8 weeks out from Gastric Bypass and lost another 25. So I'm averaging about 3 pounds a week post-surgery. That's the most I've ever lost consistently over time without regain so I'm happy. Good luck on your journey!
