Hello my fellow RNY peeps!  I am going on 18 months out, doing great, under goal weight with no complications and eating well.  Since having surgery I do not eat bread at all......ever.  I just don't have a taste for bread.  However, I do eat whole wheat ritz crackers on a daily basis with cheese or with peanut butter.  I am very conscious of what I eat and somewha****ch the carbs but I have as many crackers as I want.  I don't think I go crazy with the crackers but I do eat quite a few.  Is this hurting me eating the crackers or am I okay because I don't eat any bread?  Please give me some feedback guys because I really want to make sure to keep myself on track.  Thanks.

I rarely eat crackers at all. (like I think I've eaten them like 4/5 times since surgery.) My vice is popcorn, which is probably just as bad.

Actually one of those 100 calorie Pop Secret Butter has 20g of carbs. I share a bag with my daughter a couple of times a week. YUM!

5 whole wheat ritz crackers have 10 carbs and a slice of whole wheat bread ranges from 12 to 22 grams a slice. I don't think that your body knows if those carb grams are from bread or crackers though. I would use caution personally. Not that you need to stop completely, but I would control the number. It is very easy to have that old carb monster come to visit sad
