Hi ladies, I have seen several comments over the past few weeks about people saying they should I avoid certain foods or have some foods made the more bloated swollen than others. I am wondering if someone can please list for me what things I should be avoiding after having a tummy tuck and what foods I should be eating more of.  I am wondering if someone knows which foods will make my swelling worse?  Which will make it better? (Pineapple, blueberries?

Thanks kimmers, I appreciate your feedback. I had heard that certain foods like pineapple and blueberries can speed healing... Have you heard this too?

Oh yes!!  The antioxidants in both do help with healing.  Use caution with the juices though.  Depending on the brand they can be high in sugar.
