Christmas dinner after weight loss surgery

Last updated on Wed, 14th Sep 2022

It’s just under 4 months since I had my gastric bypass, and as such my Christmas dinner was somewhat different and much smaller than in previous years!

I still enjoyed the traditional turkey and ham dinner, but it was a smaller portion served on a side plate. The turkey came in the form of a boned, rolled and stuffed turkey crown from my local butcher. It cooked much more quickly than a whole bird, and one slice was the ideal portion size.

There was no starter, but I did manage a mince pie and some icecream for desert a couple of hours after the main course, and later still a few bits of cheese and crackers.

It was perhaps the richest and most abundant food I’ve had since the weight loss surgery, and I was actually surprised at how much I was able to eat. And I think it helped that I was able to pace myself, and eat when I wanted – rather than having well-meaning family members trying to constantly load up my plate.
