After having weight loss surgery the digestive system of the body is altered and its response to the same food you have always eaten may change. Although each surgery is unique, and each body responds to different foods in their own way, these are the certain foods groups that BeLiteWeight recommends caution. Feel free to try each of them out and test them, but be careful! Don't eat too much or too fast, and always remember to chew thoroughly!
Bread can expand when in contact with different liquids and chemicals in your stomache. You may want to forgo the bread basket when eating out. Save room for your meal!
Apple skins are hard to fully chew potentially causing problems with the stomaches digestion and issues smoothly going down.
It is very easy for chicken to be too dry! Make sure your chicken is very moist, maybe with a sauce, and be sure to be chew it thoroughly.
As with bread, pasta can easily absorb liquids and expand. It is also easy to take too big of a bite which can cause the uncomfortable "stuck" feeling.
5. Liquid Calories & Ice Cream
These are the worst possible food after weight loss surgery! Sugary liquids sneak their way down to your stomache without much discomfort and quickly start packing on weight!
Much like bread and pasta rice can expand a lot. Just be careful and don't eat too much or too fast!
Many of these foods are high in carbohydrates which takes up room in your stomache causing you to not be able to eat the protein rich foods that you need for your hair, muscles, and bodily functions. Focus on your protein first and then just a couple of bites of carbs.
