Actually, I really don't think about the processing..lol. I do remember the first time they gave me blueberry water ice after my operation. The surgical resident said, "Oh, I see you ate blueberry water ice!" I didn't realize how fast the transit time could be. It may differ amongst all of us, but I always had a very fast transit time, even when I had my colon. Food just zips down my esophagus, through my stomach, and out my small intestine. It's a wonder I gain any weight, but I have .
My surgeon said I could eat anything but just to chew very thoroughly. I have followed his advice, and so far, so good .
