Default Is there a right way to eat bread/toast?

Hi all,

I am 8 weeks out from RNY and decided to try a piece of light whole grain bread...good nutritional values on this brand. I toasted it with a piece of cheese and tried to eat it. Yuck. Not but just queasy.

Is there a trick to it? Do you keep it moist with a little margarine? I thought the melted american cheese would do the job, but I may have to put this on the back burner for a little while.

Or should I just skip the bread anyways? I have seen a few folks on RR talk about not using bread at all. It's okay by me (I am more of a cheese and meat person than a bread/pasta person anyways), but I just thought for variety's sake...

Jay

Yes, you can often get insurance cover for your Weight Loss Surgery.
Our own Craig "Big-T" Thompson has been there and done that, and he's written an e-book about it.

for me, the only way i can eat toast is DRY and near burnt and it has to hsve sat for a while--you know like when toast get cold and its stays crispy? warm toast usually end up soggy if theres butter involved. that doesnt work for me AT ALL.

melba toast works good for me. but if i need something to break up the lunchmeats i usually use WASA crisps. they are like something between a cracker and toast. other than that, i dont eat bread at all. forget about sandwiches. it seems to gum up into a ball and make me feel sick. i havent found a secret way to eat it that makes it ok for my pouch. if you do please share

Im with Kenya. That is the only way I could take it at first to. If you dont have to eat it or feel you really need it .......wait on it. One of the things we all think before surgery is dry toast crackers are supposed to help nausea but when we have this surgery that is not the case.

If you can leave it right now ...... leave it alone. Then test the waters a little later down the road.

I agree with the above gals. lol They told me if I had to eat toast to make sure it was toasted really well. It can gum up if you don't. I don't eat bread myself. Never thought I could do with out it but I really don't miss it at all.

ummmm

You're 8 weeks out
You really should NOT being doing any bread at all!
Bread is such a 'trigger' for so many to binge and get back to old ways AND eaten incorrectly it can wad up and cause a blockage!

WATER WATER WATER
PROTEIN FIRST & MOST then Veggies, then maybe fruit (if it doesn't make you dump"

I think my nut started me back on breads around the 3rd month. I don't have any problems with it and usually have a half sandwich for lunch every day. But most people do seem to have problems with bread and say the drier the better.

Like the others have said, if you can leave it alone, do so. It's very high in carbs no matter how healthy a bread you chose (I personally like Peperidge Farm's 15 grain bread, lots of nuts and seeds) and the best way to lose the most weight is to cut carbs to the very minimum. Stick with protein and veggies for now. You can add bread back in once you've finished losing.

Hi Everyone - Would you consider low carb whole wheat wraps in the same category as bread? My nut has told me that I have no restrictions and can eat whatever I can tolerate. (obviously, low fat, low sugar). But I'm free to try bread, rice and pastas. I haven't - but was considering a low carb wrap.

I used low carb wraps early out to make pizzas. I would make my own sauce with some garlic and onion sauted, then salt and oregano stirred into tomato sauce, 1 oz of LF mozzarella cheese, turkey peperoni, and veggies (whatever looked good). I would eat half of it and have the other half the next day.
