Maybe you can replace the half and half with milk?

My team never banned tea and coffee. I had my first coffee as my first drink in hospital. I live on the stuff.

Lucky duck! I’m jealous.

pizza. I could eat it for every meal for the rest of my life if I had to. Also any type of desert really. I don’t really crave them but if I see them I can’t resist.

Huge chocolate bars. I ate them every day in the before times. I am a bone fide, dyed-in-the-wool chocaholic, currently abstinent. I do have the occasional square of 100% cocoa bar (no sugar) but honestly I can't believe how little I am interested these days. Just not worth the space in my stomach at the minute. I hope it stays like that for a looooong time too.

I was never asked to quit caffeine either. I would have found that almost impossible.

Smartfood cheese popcorn. I literally can't have it in the house. And you'd think it'd be hard to eat a lot because it takes up so much room, but no, apparently it's a slider too.

i had to cut gluten out of my diet several years ago. i've haven't been truly tempted, and never cheat. I also have diverticulitis and do not eat nuts & popcorn. All of this cold turkey. No pop, no caffeine either. I'm good with all of it.

However, ice cream calls my name. Screams it, in fact. That is a struggle for sure.

Smart food cheese popcorn gets an honorable mention for me as well. Pretty much no limit on how much I can consume. Slides right through.

I noticed that popcorn is a slider food for me as well. I do the skinny pop but I have eaten two of the individual bags on more than one occasion and probably could eat even more if I allowed myself.

My weakness is anything sour, tart, salty. I don't have a sweet tooth so I don't care about that. I also don't like bread. But Dt Mt Dew and Dt Coke...oh lordy....out of everything, that's gonna be the hardest to break. I was told the caffeine isn't an issue as long as you stay well hydrated (they said caffeine can dehydrate you) but the carbonation is a big no no because it can irritate and stretch the pouch.

And regular Coca Cola. Not diet, not Coke Zero, the classic coke in a can in a glass with ice.

I love pasta and chips too but sadly I will tell you it doesn't go away...especially the 2 week liquid diet (or more) you'll miss food sooo much and crave it.

Best to develop the right mindset, find healthy alternatives when you can eat solid food and find the right coping mechanisms.

      I just had a teaspoon of hummus with a teaspoon of avocado topped with a teaspoon of greek yogurt and it. was. GLORIOUS. I'm four days out and my surgeon gave me the greenlight to work in small amounts of pureed food.

      😫 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 .
