  1. Hi - Protein shakes were driving me NUTS. I am at the very end of full liquids and beginning to introduce pureed food. However my purees are on the liquidier side because it is what I can handle. You can add less liquid to this recipe if your tummy can handle thicker stuff. I was so wanting something savory. I've been basically living off premier protein chocolate shakes and broth based soups with flavorless protein added (for awhile this was truly all I could handle otherwise I would feel quite ill) but - now I am trying more things gradually. Note - this serves probably like 6-8 servings? Maybe more? I haven't measured. I just eat a few spoonfuls and don't over-do it. Ingredients 🔸4 hard boiled eggs 🔸1.5 tbsp mayo (I used chosen foods - because it's paleo and doesn't have inflammatory oils - I was paleo before surgery and before pre-op even to help manage my PCOS symptoms) 🔸1 stalk celery chopped 🔸A dash of Himalayan Pink Salt 🔸A dash of Onion Salt (I used Trader Joe's brand) 🔸1/4C Pickle Juice (this is the liquidy element that helped me) Directions 🔹 Throw everything into the blender and blend until completely smooth. 🔹 Store and refrigerate. I tend to eat 2 oz servings at a time. Additional notes - you can probably add more seasoning to this if you're able to tolerate. Since I am so early on I wanted to keep it very simple and easy to digest. I loved loved loved this meal. Hope yours turn out great 👍

    Food Before and After Photos

    How long did it take your stomach to be able to handle this? I just made one scrambled egg and even eating half of it feels like a task - struggling to get my protein in unless I do shakes (which I am so tired of)

    3 days post op

    This was me for the first week - to a T. I ended up improving a lot.... I am now 19 days post op and feeling awesome. The 2nd week is when I really started to improve honestly. Just do what you can and rest!

    Any October 2021 Surgeries?

    It gets easier post op… but harder in other ways. Soon you’ll be grateful to be able to get liquid down real slow!
  5. I am experiencing terrible breath (I brush my teeth and have great oral hygiene) but my breath is absolutely rancid. I am 13 days post-op! Any advice on this?

    Heat pad, and hot baths helped me! Lots more walking than you think you need. I promise it gets better I’m day 14 post op and no longer in pain.
  8. Yes I believe they will - you'll likely lose it.

    Bad Breath

    I am a pretty low carb/low sugar eater anyway (years of paleo). I tend to dislike sugary drinks and always water them down. However - I've never been into juice :(. I tried making a smoothie with half a banana yesterday and my breath does seem to smell less so I think you're right about ketosis!

    Banana "Bread" Smoothie

    Even pre-op and most of my life for the last 2 years (thanks to paleo low carb eating) I avoid bananas like the plague but I think in small increments they're nutritionally dense and easy on the tummy. I know people love them so I figured this would be a great recipe to share. This felt awesome on my Day 13 post op tummy. 1/2 banana 1/2 C. VANILLA GREEK YOGURT (I used 2 Good) A dash of nutmeg A dash of cinnamon 1/3 C. Fair Life Fat Free Milk 1/3 C. Filtered Water 1 Scoop Whey Protein (I use MyProgressMD - in Vanilla recommended by my surgery program) 🍌Nutrition Facts 283kcal 21g carb (normally I'd consider this high but while I am recovering I'm good with it) I aim for under 50g per day 4g fat 41g protein 🎉 2g fiber 11g sugar 87mg sodium Blend until everything is smooth! I am ending my full liquids soon but was getting really tired of chocolate. I think PB2 would probably also taste great in this recipe but I didn't feel like peanut butter today. You could also add cocoa, etc or any other flavors you like!

    My surgery program says to wait until day 30 post-op so I have been but I am right there with you I so miss my daily coffee. Excited to try out "profee" which I have seen a lot of the people in the bariatric community make.

    For me - It got easier each day. Now I can drink without discomfort but it's still slow sips!

  20. My surgery program said no straws - they suggested the air could stretch out the stomach pouch. Anyone know anything about this?
