I’ve been told that I should wait two to three minutes between each bite after I have my surgery. That seems like a long time. How long does it take you all to eat? Maybe since I’ll be eating less it won’t take up as much time as I think.

My doctor said you should take 30 minutes to eat a meal.

From Becky

I think that’s true. I take around 30-40 minutes for each meal, spending most time chewing my food carefully and checking what my body feels after every spoon. I’ve seen people bringing timer around so they can time everything properly. Talk about dedication!
