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.

      😫 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!!

      2. SleeverSk

        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 .
