When Can You Eat Nuts After Gastric Sleeve Surgery?

Nuts are a great source of protein, healthy fats, vitamins and minerals. They also provide a satisfying crunch. However, they can be high in calories. It is important to follow dietary guidelines after gastric sleeve surgery to avoid complications.

The question of when can you eat nuts after gastric sleeve is frequently asked. Most patients can start eating nuts about four weeks after surgery, but this will vary from patient to patient. You should listen to your body and eat nuts when you feel ready. If you experience any digestive issues, such as pain or bloating, it may be best to wait.

It is recommended that you stick to the liquid diet for the first two weeks after gastric sleeve surgery, but after this, you can gradually add solid foods into your diet. You should always eat small portions of food and make sure to chew your foods thoroughly. This will help reduce the risk of surgical (intraoperative) complications, such as diarrhea, dehydration and bowel obstruction.

If you decide to eat nuts, it is important to choose smaller varieties, such as almonds and pistachios. You should also avoid roasted and salted nuts. You can eat these nuts as a snack or incorporate them into your meals. Sprinkle them over fish or chicken, in a salad or on 100 percent whole grain crackers. You can also spread peanut butter on apple slices or a banana. If you’re feeling a craving for crunchy foods, try adding some peanut butter or nuts to a smoothie.
