"People will argue with you that getting what you want in life isnt something you can learn, if youre destined to be one of the worlds winners as opposed to one of its perpetual whiners, its because you have been born with the right talents and temperament and have a big dose of self-esteem, ambition, and good judgment."

I am curious as to why grapes shouldn't be eaten because of the skin. I tried some yesterday (and am only 6 weeks post-op) and they went down just fine. In fact, they helped me to have a bowel movement, too, (I assume because of fiber) as we all know how constipation is a side affect to RNY. I just chewed them up really really well and I couldn't even tell that there was a skin there. Is this wrong?
I was at a nutrition class the other day at Sharp hospital and they said it was OK to eat grapes, but it really had no nutritional value, and that if you were to eat them you should remove the peel if your surgery has been less than 3 months.
