VSG EDUCATION & INSIGHTS

Please listen to your body folks. I don’t know how people manage to re-stretch their stomach after #VSG.

In 1 year I have overindulged twice and the first time was on accident.

1st time: A seafood binge on my birthday, I had just got onto soft foods and I was a little too excited ( almost 3 weeks post op)

2nd Time: Drinking and eating at the same time and over filled my belly (like 2 weeks ago)

When you have Vertical Sleeve Gastrectomy you are informed that you should not to eat and drink at the same time (it prevents overwhelming your stomach). You are encouraged to eat slow and take small bites. Thoroughly chew your food until it is basically mush (helps to digest better)

Guys please make it easier for yourself especially during your first year of recovery. This photo displays the usual amount of food I can eat in a setting before I FEEL FULL! I have learned to listen. Right now I am 1 year 2 weeks post op. I eat a lot of small meals throughout the day and I am completely satisfied.

On another note @starbucks hit the nail on the head with these egg bites. OMG they are lite and fluffy, and sooooooooooo good I’m saving the other one for midday snack

That wasn’t exactly tasty

I am almost 13 months post op and I’m still learning things about myself and this new tongue that I have. Okay, so this is typically how my mornings go especially when I’m on the run. I usually grab fruit and yogurt or coffee. This morning I decided to try a Nutri-Grain bar

I stopped eating sugary and processed foods back in January 2020 in preparation for surgery. Every now and then I may have a popsicle or something but I’m more into savory things and such. I opened the package and tasted a crumb and gave it to my husband. I CAN’T DO IT!


I’m not saying everyone will loose certain cravings and tastes  for all things sugary. But for me it’s a no go. I opted for the banana and I was still only able to finish half of that.

Listen to your body folks….. your stomach will remind you later.
