    When to start logging food?

    I started when I moved to solids (3w). I get the benefits and know I should have done it during my pre-op time. I still struggle logging everything I eat. Good reminder to see these posts. Sent from my iPhone using the BariatricPal App

    Hacks, Tips and Helpful Notes

    I'm 6w out and was searching the forum to find some advice on how to slow down while I'm eating. Stumbled across this thread and in particular, this post. It was wonderful, very helpful, and just what I needed today. Sent from my iPhone using the BariatricPal App

    What is your favorite snack?

    Didn't think about pickles! When do you think it's appropriate to try them. I know the standard, "depends on your program", but when did you try them? Sent from my iPhone using the BariatricPal App

    8 days Post OP meal

    Have you tried broth? The savory was my life saver during my 21 days of liquid post op. Don't rush it. Sent from my iPhone using the BariatricPal App

    16 Days Post-OP and loving it!

    I had this bowl of cottage cheese after 21 days of liquids post op the other day and it was amazing. Couldn't finish it, but still so delicious. Sent from my iPhone using the BariatricPal App

    Protein drinks

    There are about a million threads on this. Do a quick search. Most are personal preference. Premier, Isopure, unjury, GNC Lean 25, Syntrax.

    When does this get better

    I'm 14 days out and day 10 was my tipping point. I'm still on all Clear liquids, so I'm a bit hungry (or I think I am). But feeling pretty good. Sent from my iPhone using the BariatricPal App

    Messed up

    I'm 14 days out and only having Protein shakes, broth and no calorie drinks (I won't be cleared for soft foods puddig, cottage cheese, refried Beans until another week). Please review the plan your surgeon sent you. Make sure you're getting all your Water, that could be a cause of your hunger. Also stomach acid could mimic hunger. I am on Prilosac to combat that. Did you get anything for the stomach acid as well? Sent from my iPhone using the BariatricPal App

    How do you take the calcium supplement?

    @@Dub, I'm still on liquids for another 8 days (but who is counting). I'd like to start these once I'm released to food. They are a little spendy, where do you get them? Amazon? Sent from my iPhone using the BariatricPal App

  23. I'm so happy to see this post. I'm feeling the same way after being sleeved on 9/7. Fortunately, I can still have Protein shakes but the rest is liquid until 9/28. I'm really getting tired of store bought broth, I'm definitely going to try the homemade this week. Sent from my iPhone using the BariatricPal App
  24. Hi all Sleeved on 9/7 and am feeling pretty good physically. I am on a three week post-op liquid diet (shakes, broth, and sugar free liquids). I did fine with the liquid diet the first week, but I'm finding now that I'm STARVING. I'm getting close to 64oz of Water and probably 50-60grams of Protein in my two shakes. I don't know if it's normal to feel hunger this early? I'm honestly, a little nervous that I'm hungry. Thoughts appreciated.

    Sleepinng on my stomach!

    I'm 9 days post-op and I can relate. I've been sleeping in our recliner and taking melatonin. I think I'm close to being able to sleep on my stomach. I'm sorry, I really do understand. Sent from my iPhone using the BariatricPal App
