I couldnt eat raw veggies until I was about 6/7 months out. It just really depends on your pouch. Personally, I dont think you are ready for them now. My team explained to me that in the begining you have to very careful when you add foods back into your diet. You will have to first let your stomach heal fully. You can eat a rough Medifast food that can scar your insides and lead to other probs. I had a girl that worked with me that it happened to...

Listen to your doc. My practice has a plan of what we can eat and when. I am 5 wks out. I have had some small salads with vinegrette dressing. I LOVE those little grape tomatos on the salad as well. I am tolerating veggies very well.

You'll figure out when your ready...

Just because some say no doesn't make it wrong. It soley depends on your pouch, your ability to chew well and your keen sense which things work and those that don't.

Do the program. You bet. But become self reliant as soon as possible..

Just chew and ear slowly! It's just plants for gods sake.

If you eat live Medifast food chewed well , they just don't know shit!.

I couldn't have a salad till 4 months out, and it was the only thing I wanted........didn't disappoint, I still love my salads and I'm 14 months post-op. Went from 338 lbs to 175....I still want to lose another 20-25 but it's coming off soooooo slow now..

Good luck..

Even well chewed salad doesn't digest well so be prepared to have it exit the body in much the same format as it goes in. So yes, chew it really, really well and expect to get all the benefits of the fiber. It's a little rougher at the beginning than later in the process so take it slow and listen to what your Doc advises. Pureed veggies were a treat for me - I needed the variety after meal after meal of soft meats and protein shakes. And I made a sauteed spinach and cheese omelette once I could have soft foods. Just enough spinach to add texture and taste. Good luck - it gets easier!..

Kim and all others, I juiced tomatos and greens the day I got.

Home from the hospital. I think Kitti... Mentioned something about being hard to digest. She right, you'll see leaf in your big potty if you don't chew well..

But I like that! LOL.

But FYI until your stomach acid returns you'll have problems with anything that's solid forsure..

But so I'm clear, anyone who thinks eating plants is out of bounds, just doesn't know shit about this journey. I say again, the sooner you can eat live food, blended, chewed well or juiced the sooner your big bodies will begin to thrive and your faces will have color again..
