    This is a little TOO easy

    I had no issues either, no pain meds even when I was in the hospital, skipped the clear liquid phase and went straight to general liquids. The pureed phase for me has pretty much been my own cooking chopped up in the food processor and now I am eating pretty much what I want (no pasta, bread, salad, steak) and I am only 4 1/2 weeks out. Still only eating about 4-6 tablesppons per meal. I've lost 21 lbs since the day I got home from the hospital, I go back Friday, guess we'll see what they say...I also don;t feel like i had any surgery until i start eating...I so hope I can start eating salad again after my appt. Keep up the good work..

  14. My Nutrtionist said during the puree stage (weeks 2-5) we should be getting 60-80 gms protein and 600-800 cals

    Please help me with protein!

    I hate protein drinks too...today I really enjoyed mine. Vanilla cream pure protein from walmart (premixed) 2 oz sugar free coconut coffee syrup and 2 oz over the moon fat free milk...it was the bomb.The premixed tends to be a little more expensive but for me well worth it of I can get it down without gagging I also experimented with the frosty chocolate with a little peanut butter and 4 oz fat free milk and it was good too...30 grams of protein in one sitting.

    Hello all, Finally found this forum. I'm sorry to hear everyone is having so many problems. I am truly blessed. I have had no pain, I am eating all pureed's with no problems and am going back to work tomorrow. Hating the protein shakes but am doing it first thing in the am so I don';t need to deal with it. 1 shake a day and the rest from food. I've been experimenting alot with the shakes and have gotten them so they are at least tolerable...I just do a shot glass of 2 ounces every 10 minutes or so. Wondering if something is wrong because I feel so good and have been able to eat jutabout anything pureed with no problems. Had 1 bad experience the 1st night of puireed...ate too fast and felt lousy...walked it off. I bought a bunch of baby spoons and it helps alot. Wishing you all the best and keep your chin up. I've lost 14 lbs since feb 8th (9 days)

    Fabulous February!

    Hello all, I'm home and feel great. I had no pain or any gas pains. I can;t believe I actually did this and am feeling so good. Just trying to sip sip sip, clear liquids for a week, not sure how I am going to survive that. Hope everyone else is feeling as well as I am.
