Hi Joe I had the same problem. I loved pasta. I'll be honest... the first 6-8 months were difficult not being able to eat and pasta was the one thing i missed the most. Unfortunately for me i was never able to go back to pasta. It makes me dump. And i've tried every single type... whole wheat, rice, spianch... all make me sick. I'm 4 years post op and occasionally i do crave pasta but the cravings went away after 6-8 months. I rarely think about it. Even at weddings i pass the tray around without touching it and it doesnt bother me one bit. The first 6 months after surgery is where your brain learns that those types of foods are bad and when you eat them they cause pain or make you sick... eventually you dont care for them any more. Its hard to imagine where you are at now that you can go without pasta but trust me, those pasta cravings go away and you wont even think twice about it. I had a restaurant and I do all the cooking in my house, my wife and kids love pasta and i cook it occsionally and i have no problems. You have to look at the big picture. How long will you be around making home made pasta if you remain at the weight you are now?? We grew up with our parents and nonna living off pasta and bread and thats all we know about. There are healthier choices out there. I'm a fanatic of greek salad. I can eat it 3x a day whereas before i didnt even think salad was meal... i thought salad came WITH the meal. Best of luck Joe. Its a decision you wont regret. If you have questions you can email me directly xxxhotmail.com
