Hello and good day
I'm wondering if there are any
Other Culinary Students & Chefs
That have had Gastric Sleeve Gastric Bypass or Lap Band Procedure ?
how are you working around things
are you just that good that you don't need to taste some things ?
are you fallowing the Diets that your Dr and Nutritionist gave you ?
how are you dealing with the changes ?
I have been in school for 12 months now
And just over Winter break i had my surgery
its been not easy on me alot has changed
I am no longer allowed to consume anything that has more then 2-4 grams of sugar and has to be very low on Carbohydrates
I will not be able to eat any items that contain white Flour
I understand that there is a difference between eating and tasting
So tasting what i Produce will not be an issue i just have to remember no matter what if its something i am not allowed to have i need to remember not to eat just taste
The big problem that i am worried about is anything that can not be made with a sugar substitute i will not be able to taste because once sugar hits your mouth it goes right into the blood stream so that i will have to figure out
but i would like to know
How others have dealt with this
and hope to find some fellow Culinary Professional for a support group of friends perhaps
I am lucky the the school understand my situation and that they fallow the ADA guidelines and allow me to take gen education courses for now i have not had to been in the kitchen in the past 3 months but my next class will put me back in the kitchen in 5 weeks from now the hardest part about that i think is because it will be Baking and Pastry class next
