I am just curious about ordering a pancake at a restaurant, or eating part of one that someone has ordered. Does anyone have experience with this at one month out?

I wouldn't recommend it at your early stage. I'm 4 months out and still the thought of eating a pancake isn't appealing.

It's thick and heavy and will probably just sit in your pouch. Not to mention, nutritionally it's typically low in protein, high in carbs, high in fat..and that's before you add butter and syrup. I know I would be in a carb coma if I ate one.

Stick to eggs. I usually order poached eggs as I know they're not cooked in butter or oil.

I make delicious pancakes! I made a perfect batch of buttermilk pancakes and took them to my sister. I did not taste a single pancake. I was transitioned to regular foods one month out. So, I think you will do fine. Just go slow.

For me, I continue to resist.

1 month out- you should do fine. Try eating part of someone's pancake with SF syrup. Eat slow!

see if they have whole wheat ones, that would be a better option, although at 1 month out, you may want to just stick with eggs. Trying something like that out can be dangerous as you dont know how your body will respond!

At 6 weeks out I figured I would try a BITE..small bite of my hubby's pancake with sugarfree syrup. Spent the next 3 hours trying to throw it back up. Was seriously the worse eating episode I have had with food. After about a year out I could eat about 3 bites with no problems. But pancakes EXPAND when they hit your stomach. If you do take that bite just be ready for whatever might happen after.

I will celebrate my year anniversary in a couple weeks, and have just recently had pancakes, that I made with whole wheat flour, apple sauce, coco powder, protein powder, splenda, pumpkin pie spice. I made the silver dollar sized, They smelled so good, and were nice and fluffy, I didn't need any syrup on them at all, I had 1.5 of them and was so full!!!

The IHOPs I have been to have a whole wheat/grain version that I have eaten but cant eat much because I get really full really quick. And then really hungry again soon. Keep in mind when I had them I was 2 plus years out of surgery also. At your stage in the game you should really be focusing on getting your protein/fluids in and maximizing your weight loss potential. There will time for pancakes down the road. The groceries here sell a sf version by Walden farms of pancake mix. I have this at home on occasion and it it is yummy with some sf syrup. I would suggest that route if you feel you must have pancakes.

I agree with those that say WAIT.

You're not going to do yourself any favors as far as getting the most out of your active weight loss phase if you start adding in those kinds of foods back in. Plus at six weeks, you're still at a point where your pouch is sensitive and you don't know how you're going to react. Sheecee is a perfect example.. In all honesty, restaurant food is not your friend early out.. any restaurant food and if you can avoid them as much as possible, you'll be better off. But when you do go, especially early out, stick to healthy options that will help you achieve your goal.

I have just started eating the occassional pancake. Note I said pancake. I can't eat more than one. They are heavy and they just sit there. Try something else right now, Maybe french toast. But know that the bread stuff will just sit there and you will feel full even though you aren't getting any real nutritional value out of it for your eating needs.

At one month out the LAST thing you should want to eat is a pancake. I'm over a year out and only had half of one and it sat quite heavy in my pouch.

You need to be filling your fresh pouch with high protein food... a ham & cheese omelet, or any kind of eggies.
