    Fave Meals

    You can purée most things. Just use gravy, stock, milk, yoghurt, Mayo, etc. to keep it moist & drop of the spoon consistency. Add herbs & spice to taste. I was allowed instant rolled oats (with extra milk to keep it thin) & scrambled eggs (again with extra milk so very soft). I also mashed boiled eggs, & puréed tinned salmon with Mayo (though it tasted pretty revolting). Also puréed very slow cooked meat & vegetable soups. I also ate yoghurt & drank yoghurt drinks. Friend swore she ate puréed chicken with gravy every day. It may come down to what tastes ok to you (I threw out the salmon).

    Buyer remorse and emotional

    Oh yes. I felt that way many times in the beginning. The first several weeks are the hardest because you're still recovering from surgery, you have a lot of restrictions on what you can eat, you have to drink nasty protein shakes, and you haven't lost enough weight to feel the benefits of the surgery. Once you get to the regular foods stage and get the benefits of weight loss, things will get a lot easier. I'm almost two years out now, and that miserable newly post-op stage feels like a lifetime ago -- just a tiny blip on my journey to losing 200 pounds. Hang in there!

    Fave Meals

    I cook from scratch for my family every day so I just pureed whatever they were having with extra sauce/gravy. My absolute fave from that period was a roast lamb dinner - loads of lamb, some veg, some gravy. Sooooo tasty I still remember it after the bland liquids/shakes phases.

    Fave Meals

    Let's see... I had chicken curry, chicken alfredo, there was Thai something, even did Mongolian BBQ. Basically I pureed my favorites using the meat and a little sauce for moisture/flavor. Protein first, in quantity at least, it's hard to tell once it's pureed. I always went for big bang for meals: big flavor, big spice, big heat, small quantity. Good luck, Tek

    My 45 year old female 1st cousin just died from a heart attack. My other 1st cousin had his first heart attack at 38. I’m feeling so grateful I had the surgery! There’s no guarantees but I’ve increased my health odds in the right direction.

    Buyer remorse and emotional

    Yes I had buyers remorse and mood swings and I regretted it for about 2 months. It was super tough. It is big surgery and big changes. Our female hormones are totally out of whack, It made me so moody . At almost 7 months out, its like having a baby, I have almost forgotten the dreadful issues I had. Just get through each day, your next one will be better than the last. Be strong

    Buyer remorse and emotional

    What you are experiencing is very common. You’ve been going through a lot. The surgery, the change in your diet, pain & discomfort. So much new information & things to learn. Perfectly understandable that you’re questioning if it will be worth it. Plus your hormones are all over the place making you more emotional. It just takes time. Time to heal & recover. Time for your hormones to settle. Time to become familiar & more confident about the changes to your eating, etc. Take as much time as you need. One day you’ll realise you are feeling a lot better, stronger & confident about everything. Your weight will be decreasing. And you’ll realise yes, it was worth it. All the best.
