I used to be able to eat chicken (white meat) almost everyday of the week. Now chicken gets stuck going down. I was told to try dark meat. Meanwhile, I eat a lot more cheese and peanut butter for protein.

I don't like any of the meats I use to before surgery.  For me its a texture thing.  Having to chew chicken, hotdogs, hamburger and steak until they are mush is disgusting.  I didn't chew much before....bite, chew once or twice and then wash it down with tea.  It makes a huge difference.

 

I have found Japanese stir fry to be my friend lately.  I can get a stir fried scallops or shrimp and veggies (broccoli, mushrooms and zucchini) meal and split it into about 4 meals.  They chew up quickly and the texture is unlike meat if you know what I mean!  We have a Japanese drive thru (lol) in our little town so I buy a plate on Monday and Thursday a week and I am set for dinners for the week. 

 

I have also bought the stir fry vegetable plate and added a heated big Tyson canned chicken when I wanted chicken.  It's already shredded so it goes down easily with the veggies!

Hello- Try marinating your meat. It is a natural tenderizer and definitely makes the taste better. I am not a meat eater, but find that it helps me and you don't get tired of the same old thing.

I formerly loved meat. Now not so much. I mostly eat fish and shellfish. Which I love.

Even chicken and turkey give me some trouble. I did have turkey meatballs in marinara sauce this weekend, over spaghetti squash, and also some chicken tortilla soup (made with thighs).

But steak, pork, white meat chicken, turkey seem to get stuck.

I used to LOVE tuna. I could eat it every day. I really don't care for tuna now. I was never a fan of pork. At about six months out I had an addiction to pork. It went on for months! It's so weird!

I'm not going to go out of the way to add red meat back in. I'm getting adequate protein (80-100 gms/day) from the Whey Protein Isolate and fish that I eat. I have problems with lipids (cholesterol and triglycerides) and skipping red meat is good for that.

I really love fish. Probably my Nordic/Scottish ancestry.

I used to LOVE tuna. I could eat it every day. I really don't care for tuna now.

I took a tuna fish sandwich to high school every day for the entire 4 years. I still like it, only it doesn't like me all that much since WLS.

I know what you mean.  I feel that way about steak.  I'm only two weeks out so I'm just in pureeds right now.  I'm so hoping that when I try my first steak it doesn't give me an issue.  I really would be sad about that.  But I made the decision to get healthy so it is what it is.

BBQ are ribs no longer are on my menu.  Love them but experienced no trouble leaving them behind.  Sometimes you gotta make choices.

While VSG people don't dump, GB patients might when eating greasy fatty foods.  That kind of stuff gets stuck for me and is painful.

I tried beef last night.  I made a pot roast in the crock pot and pureed a little for myself.  It tasted great and I tolerated it just fine, but even with pureeing I had to chew a lot.  By the time I was ready to swallow, I didn't even want it anymore.  Too much time and effort at this point.  I am going to wait on beef for a bit.  Maybe I'll see how it goes with a little steak in a few weeks.

I hated fish before my surgery. I'm a texture person and I just never liked the texture of fish. I was OK with tuna salad, but not often. Now I eat it all the time. I crave it, even and the texture doesn't bother me anymore. It's weird and definitely not something I expected.

I tried a tiny cube of chicken last night and it went well.  I made sure it was two bites instead of just popping it in my mouth.  I made a quesadilla for hubby last night and couldn't resist a little taste of the chicken.  I was expecting pain or discomfort or maybe for it to get stuck and...nothing.  But it was just a tiny cube.  That could change in a couple weeks when I add more to my diet.
