This is such an interesting thing. Maybe it's just us Texas girls, but I did the very same thing shortly after my surgery. I was totally craving pickle juice. It was the best thing ever. Then, I did a little googling and found that apparenlty lots of folks after WLS crave pickles. Weird, weird,weird.
I even ordered pickle pops...like the cheap popsicles that you freeze, but they are actually pickle juice. I haven't had them since then. But, boy did they hit the spot when I needed them!
This is only a tool. We all still have to work at it ....... Take care and hang in there.... Welcome to the looser bench lololo still lolol

I am 4 days out from gastric sleeve surgery. My stomach has not been very comfortable. The thing that has helped the most is shaved ice with pickle juice in it!
Thank you for this. I was craving a hotdog and instead grabbed the pickle and peppercini juice and it hit the spot. Since I'm not a salt person, I put my numbers in Myfitnespal and it was slightly over but balanced out my low sodium this week.
At least it has no real nutritional value. I feel like that saved me today.
I have posted several times that pickles are my go to snack when I want something sweet or just need the mouthfeel of crunching something. My biggest disappointed came last month when Costco quit carrying my favorite cold pack pickle spears. Vlasic and Clausen are my other favorites. My wife mentioned this to her nutritionist and she said pickles are a great snack.
During my liquid phase, luckily for me only 1 week, I loved a shrimp consomme that a local restaurant served. I bought a couple of quarts to get through the last few days.
