Thia may be a weird question-

i love cereal- when will I be able to eat it again? I'm talking corn flakes or Chex cereal, nothing sweetened.

thanks in advance!

Whenever you are clear for full solid foods. I didnt try any until just recently. I would wait a few months after surgery at least though in my personal opinion. Give your stomch time to settle in to its new life.

Just because someone CAN eat something doesn't mean they SHOULD.

This is true, but it isn't up to me what someone eats. I can't make those choices for someone else, only myself. I just answered her question.

You really shouldn't. Cereal is just crap, even the stuff that pretends to be healthy. It spikes blood sugar faster than a chocolate bar, and gives you cravings for more and more. And no one ever eats the serving size that's suggested. Before you know it you'll be eating 3 times as much as you should.

And cereal is a slider. You can eat it nonstop. Really, just don't go back down that path. You really will be happier without it.

When you've reached your weight goal. There's no reason to add processed or refined carbs back into your diet - they won't help you reach your goal.

I don't eat cereal for all the reasons that the others are telling you. But I do occasionally put 1/4 cup of TVP (textured vegetable protein) add a little milk, stevia, and a tiny pinch of salt. It has 9 carbs but at least it has protein. It kind of reminds me of grapenuts cereal. It is sold in bulk at health food stores and some Wincos. Don't try it until you are sure your stomach is fully healed.

I add TVP to the top of yogurt for a little crunch

I agree with the other posters that it's a dangerous road to go down. Just look at the carbs in a single serving!
