You definitely have a lot of stress with the serious family illnesses in your family. I can understand how stress plays a part, I have always been a stress eater.
Here's my suggestion: Try to make good food choices. Instead of the croissant pick something healthy. Instead of the rice, some steamed veggies. I know it's hard to find nutritious food when you are in unfamiliar territory sometimes, but hospital cafeterias usually have a variety of veggies and sometimes a salad bar too, along with a baked meat entree. My prayers are with your family and I am so sorry you're all having so much to bear right now. Take it a day at a time and keep your faith strong. God Bless
Hi there, i am 3 years out and i can eat alot also. i now use a Correll salad plate. it sure does help. Well i would say the steak is good since its protein. how big was the steak? i usually have 3 ozs of meat like steak or chicken when i cut it up it sure does look like alot. 3 ozs is like a deck of playing cards. i would say if you dont eat this stuff everyday then you are fine. we all have our bad days. when i was in the hospital i had pasta and breads and that was on the gastric diet (i had an adominalplasty) i was suprised to get pasta, breads. but it was in small portoins also. 80 ozs of water is wonderful too. i try to get in6-7 20 oz bottles of water a day. water is very good for you. i do eat cashews also but not all the time. i love nuts! i also drink decaf coffee. try to get protein and water in and walk too that will help. other will say go back to the basics. hope this helps.
