Yes, I'm bored. Terribly bored. And trying to convince myself that I should do more than wash the sheets, run the dishwasher, and otherwise straighten up a bit before leaving sometime tomorrow around noon.
So, you ask, "What do you eat 2+ years after having a gastric bypass?" Well, the easy answer is of course anything, but let's assume that you actually want to keep the weight off. Now, I'm not the poster child by any means; I've maintained the surgery-related weight loss and continued to shed additional pounds after the first year to the tune of more than half my pre-op weight, but it's not like I went from a size 28 to a size 6. :P I'm also addicted to grains; no inordinate protein-packing for me. ^^;
Anyway, here are some sample meals, from a person who doesn't really like meat or cheese and who hates to cook:Sample Meal #1
-seeded rye toast
-roasted red pepper hummus
-bananaSample Meal #2
-Oat Bran (a high-fiber cereal)
-skim milk (though I am somewhat lactose intolerant and really should be drinking soy milk instead. Can anyone suggest any good soy milk brands?
-appleSample Meal #3
-mixed vegetablesOther things I like to eat at home:
-salad w/ Italian dressing
-chicken (though it depends on the preparation)
-spicy Korean ramyeon (though I don't drink the soup base--too much salt!)
-various preprepared frozen entriesPopular Snacks
-carrots with peanut butter
-low fat granola bar
-Special K (eaten dry)
-piece of fruit or fruit salad
-cottage cheese with pineapple
I typically eat two meals a day and about three snacks. My mother complains that I'm eating constantly, and it may look that way, but remember that weight loss or gain is determined solely by calories in minus calories expended. Along with a vitamin cocktail, I've been staying relatively healthy since returning from Korea.
