I have found that most rny-ers can eat fish as long as it is not too fatty or dry. I really enjoy tilapia, sole, trout, and halibut much more than I used to! I especially like to add a little butter spray and a dusting of almond meal on sole and cooked in a skillet and served with some toasted almond slivers is a delicious entre for dinner. I like it with a little bit of steamed zucchini.

I also like to poach fish in buttermilk or in broth with lemon slices. I never fear eating fish (except salmon, tuna, sea bass and other fatty fish)! I just wish I could still eat scallops, crab, and shrimp. Those I can eat occassionally but most time they are hard for me to digest.

My surgery was 1/115/13 and I ate about 6 small bites of a hamburger patty today and I tolerate soft, moist chicken very well. i eat tuna and fish easily. I had Italian beef from crock pot today and ate about 2 oz. It was really good. I don't eat much at a time. Oh ya I love fruits ( strawberries, blueberries, grapes, even some pineapple). Not tolerating milk or puddings and had to change the shakes I previously drank with no problem. I just started eating almonds and dried fruit like apricots. Make sure to plan and take some protein shakes.

I must Really Lucky. I'm 6 Weeks Out And Haven't Had Any Intolerance Issues With The Exception Of Mashed Potatoes. Even The Tiniest Bite Makes Me Ill. Have Been Eating Lots Of Shrimp, Canned Tuna, Chicken Breast, Crab Sticks And Even Occasionally Those Pre Cooked Steak Strips You Find For Salads. Like Them Because They Are Really Soft, ...Not Much FaT Or gristle And Really Easy To Chew. Also Fat Free Cottage Cheese, Sugar Free Pudding, Home Made Hummus, Dannon Lite And Fit Greek (High Protien), Spinach, And Low Sugar, Low Fat Canned Soups. Sometimes With The Chicken Or Tuna I Mix In A Tbs Of FaT Free Mayo, Half A Boiled Egg And The Seasoning Of The Day. If I Get The Urge To Put This "Salad" OnT A Cracker OR Something Out Of HabitHabit, I Take A Few Slices Of Eggplant And BOil Them In ChickEn Broth.

You are so lucky Paula, I wish carbs made me sick but they do not! I also wish I had not tried that first nibble of a cracker! But the food intolerances especially to proteins is worrysome. I need to figure out what is happening so my naturopath and I can figure out what I can safely eat.

I can eat pretty much anything healthy. I can't tolerate sugars or fatty foods, but then again, those are really on the shouldn't eat list.

Missy Pouch is getting a blood test soon to help determine which foods I am intolerent and/or allergic. It is about $200 for the test and insurance will not cover it but I think it is necessary for me to figure out what I really am intolerant to and what is just a tempormental fit that missy pouch gives me occassionally for no reason. I have to check whether I can use FSA money to pay for it as that is the only way I can afford it.

My naturopath says I may have a food intolerance to something that then effects my ability to eat other protein foods. He said I may even find out that I can eat more foods by just eliminating some that are bothering missy pouch. So I am hopeful! After we know those results we will start to work on getting my colon working properly again.

Depending upon how healthy the foods your family eats are you will probably be able to eat some if not all of the foods. But you will definately not be able to plan this far ahead what you will need for yourself for food. Lunch meats, cheese sticks (low fat), hard boiled eggs, cottage cheese (low fat), Non fat yogurt, grilled chicken legs or thigh (dark meat is more moist), chili, protein drinks, are all typical foods eaten in the early months but you will not know which ones agree with your pouch until just before the trip. Even today at 2 1/2+ years out I always have backup go to foods in case something does not agree at that meal.

Thanks everyone,
I will speak to the nutritionist as well and I know it's different for everyone. My family is a planning machine, so the grocery list (which we make one large list and everyone splits it) was being planned last weekend. I just want to know if I need to perhaps plan on my own meals or if I'll be able to make do with what is purchased. If I need my own list probably, that will change what/how much is purchased and also potentially the cost per person. Just didn't know what to expect.

Hi,
You mentioned 2-3 months. I can tell you what I could tolerate at 2 months is vastly different from what I can now at 3.2 months. (It took until 2 weeks ago for me to be able to eat ANY meat, now, not at all an issue). Not on,y are dietitians different in their plans, every person is very different.

Don't worry about the trip, you will be able to go and have a great time, you'll be the best judge of what will work by that point, and there are loads of foods that will work. If not, come back and talk about what you can, cannot eat and you'll get lots of great suggestions!

Best of luck with your planning!

mine did too but I still asked questions related to my food preferences. But my book just listed a handful of items like chicken salad but I was not told to make it with a mix of mayo and yogurt to prevent dumping from too much fat. it was little things like that that made the conversation with the dietician important.

My WLS packet came with a list of what types of food I should be eating during the different stages of weight loss. Each person is different and your taste will change over time too.

I agree that checking with your surgeon/rd to get their input is the place to start. Also Weight Loss for Dummies is a good resource. I've read it , maybe 500 times already (it seems) emoticon

For me, at 2-3 months I ate cottage cheese, greek yogurt, reduced fat cheese sticks (still my go-to food), eggs, refried beans, soups (mostly broth based with lots of beans and soft veggies like carrots, red pepper, onion), split pea.

Pre-surgery, the foods you mention were staples in my diet. Post-surgery, my tastes changed and now (4 mos post surgery), I have to say my tummy / tastebuds wouldn't want most of them. But sometimes my mind still does! emoticon

One thing I've learned to do is take it day by day. I keep a variety of healthy go-to foods in my refer and pantry. I see what my tummy feels like and choose from there. If my mind gets involved and does the choosing, it's usually 'Trouble' with a capital 'T'!

That is really a question to ask your dietician or surgeon. Each of us are different and go through the food stages at a different rate. Do not put up road blocks for your future. You will do fine so do not worry. Concentrate on the now. Do your best at each stage. I ate out at a restaurant at 2 weeks out! Camping will be no problem just bring the food that you are eating at that time. I just asked the restaunt to puree my chicken and veggie soup. You will figure out what to eat when you get there.

What kinds of foods are you eating 2-3 months after surgery? I'm going camping with my family approximately 2-3 months after my surgery might be and I'm just trying to plan my menu/grocery list. I know it may change depending on my diet/doctor/healing/etc. but I'm just looking for an average. I know pasta and bread and sugary things like smores are out, but what about hamburger? steak? chicken? lunchmeat? veggies? fruit? cereal? eggs? etc....thanks so much!
