    Default How much do you eat 3 months after your gastric sleeve?

    I'm almost 3 months post op and can finally eat without nausea. I am eating things like thick chili, thick beef stew, eggs, fish, chicken, apples, salad, etc.

    My question is this... how much do you eat at about this stage?. I find that I'm eating about 1/2 of a cup to a full cup of whatever I am eating before I feel full. Is this too much?

    I don't weigh my food, just put whatever I'm going to eat in a measuring cup and then eat it slowly. Sometimes I can finish, other times I cannot. I find that if I don't measure the food, I tend to overeat and often times slime and have to sort of vomit up the overflow.

    Hello,
    I am new to this site. I had my surgery on 11-7-12 and I am still getting the nausea and acid reflux. How did you get over the nausea. The acid reflux I am sort of controlling with Zantax and Tums. Is there something that works better.

    I don't measure in a measuring cup but weigh everything. I am only able to eat 2 ounces of food at one time. Anymore than that I am so uncomfortable and sick. But I am guessing everyone is different and every food is different. I guess if I find my slider foods it would be more but I try to eat my protein first then veggies if I have room which is very seldom. congrats on your awesome weight loss too!!

    Hello! I had nausea non stop for the first two months postoperatively. There was nothing really that helped other than prescription medication that would have made me extremely sleepy so I just dealt with it. I lost most of my weight during this time because I was just too nauseous to eat or drink. In fact, I ended up in the emergency room with dehydration because everything I drank made me nauseous. All I can tell you is what I experienced and I can tell you that there was nothing that I could do to get rid of the nausea, it just went away on it's own after about 2 1/2 to 3 months.

    As far as reflux, I only get reflux when I eat or drink something that causes acid for example, Crystal lite or any juices will give me reflux. Also, if I don't keep eating every 4 hours I get an acidic stomach. I just use the generic Famotidine from Walmart. It works great for me.

    Hang in there, it will get better!

    I had my surgery on the 8th. so we're at the same spot. I got rid of the nausea by eating less... and waiting a ridiculously long time between bites. As soon as I feel the slightest big full I stop eating. The full feeling increases after that point, but only to a point that I can deal with. If I eat until I really feel full, then as it increases after I stop eating the nausea sets in. I still have heartburn but thankfully, no reflux. Good luck. btw -- I'm at 32 pounds down.... but you have an extra day on me!

    I had my surgery on the 13th of November. I lost quicklythose first 2 weeks but since then it has been very slow. I'm talking like 3 pounds in 2 weeks...getting discouraged. I eat whatever I want but maybe a cup really less than that. Help!!!

    get some medical marijuana.. that does wonders for nausea!! do you guys not feel full on your own without measuring and weighing? just wondering cause ive never weighed or measured and I feel fullness after about 1/4 cup or so.. ive never gotten so full I was sick.. never gotten sick.. never over eat.. maybe you all should eat slower and listen to your bodies to tell u when your full.. instead of trying to muscle down a certain amount.. I guess if you have to count calories then you have to weigh or measure.. IDK but so many peeps with issues not filling full till its too late and need to vomit. ive never even come close to vomit except the first time I took a vitamin.. am I just lucky?

    It depends on what im eating. If im eating something solid like meat I can usually eat a whole chicken leg, or a whole split chicken breast, or a whole buger patty. But as for soft foods like soups, I can eat more of those types of foods because they are soft and mushy. I sometimes eat too much and have to constantly spit up the slime and I have only thrown up twice since I had surgery. I will be 4 months out on the 13th. I don't do as much measuring anymore. If you look at the fact that I use kids bowls and cups now then technically I am measuring. Anywho just eat slow, stick more with the protein ie meats, beans, eggs etc. Try to stay away from carbs, and vegetables make great snacks!

    I'm a little more than 4 months out and I'd say I eat between 4 and 6 ounces of total food in a sitting. For lunch today I ate a 1 oz cheese stick and a 3 ounce salmon filet and had room for 1 or two bites of lima bean. My body def. knows when it is full and I generally cannot overeat unless I am at a long, slow dinner. At this point I have lost 70lbs in 4 months without being too worried about the oz.

    I have also NEVER vomited or even felt close to that- my body very naturally tells me to stop without over eating. I think everyone IS different though and we lucked out when it came to body's natural response!!

    Hi Ellen -- I also had my surgery on the 8th. WOO WOO Congrats on your success. I'm finding that I have about the same tolerance for food, btw. Nearing 2oz, I feel full and stop eating immediately. I'm learning to eat slower and to savor each bite.

    squin -- how much carbs are you eating? I am really limiting my carbs and weight is coming off quickly. I am a bit heavier than you are, so maybe that's the reason. Also, are you getting any exercise?
