Hi Jane! I think the eating part is about the same. With the sleeve, there typically is no dumping, though some people do experience it, so the variery of foods can be a bit broader, though many of us choose not to eat certain foods anyway. The NUT at the program I went to recommends taking a multi-vitamin, calcium and weekly B-12. As far as how I feel - great!! I had an easy recovery, and have had no real problems. If I eat too fast, take a bite or 2 too many, or drink fluids too soon after eating, my stomach hurts, so I try not to do any of that. Otherwise, it's all good and my routine around food is fairly normal. Take care!
