Depends on your doctor's guidelines... at 16 days I would have been doing purees only, but other people are cleared for stuff like chili after a week. Guess you could always puree the chili though, if you had to! I LOVE Wendy's chili, started having it at the soft foods stage and probably have it at least once a week now. :)

Goodness no! A small chili from Wendys only has 220 calories in it! 18 grams of Protein, 7 grams of fat, and 22 grams of carbs. If you only ate half... you would only be eating about 110 calories. That should definitely not make you gain weight. You'll be fine! :)

As long as you are following your surgeon's dietary guidelines, you shouldn't be worried. Especially such a short time out. Focus on your Protein, Water, and walking & you will be fine.

You'll be fine. Don't worry. My doctor let me eat that at two weeks out, but you should follow what your guidelines are. Everybody's different. What's your weight loss at?

I am a bit late to this but funnily enough my surgeon's office actually recommended Wendy's chili during the pureed (blended up a bit) and mushies (straight up) stage!

I love Wendy's Chili! But the tomatoes in it give me horrible heartburn post op. Makes me sad cuz I used to down spicy foods like there was no tommorow!

If it helps, my surgeon specifically mentioned Wendy's chili as an excellent dining out option. He said chili in general is an excellent food to eat packed with Protein and Fiber, and very filling to a sleever.
