Ideas for full liquids?

Recommended Posts

Thanks for the ideas, everyone. I had potato,cheddar, broccoli & chicken Soup (completely liquified in the blender of course) today. It was YUM! I couldn't eat much at all, but it was nice to taste something besides broth! :001_smile:

Vegas, I'm curious as well about 6 more weeks of mushies...does it have something to do with the spasms you're having?

Jachut always has some really good ideas. Wish I would have seen this when I was going through my liquids phase too!

Vegas, why are you on mushies for another six weeks?

When I had my barium swallow while Bearded was having his surgery, I still had some swelling where he fixed my hernia - also some scar tissue; however, the worst is that where he made the repair, everytime I eat or drink, I get a spasm (on the fluoriscope it looks like about the width of a piece of string) so everything sits above the spasm until it decides to relax and let my food pass - Dr. Campos told me to stay on mushies for another 4 to 6 weeks to let the swelling go down. Dr. Aceves said the spasming and scar tissue would dissipate; however could take up to 6 months. I am glad it will eventually go away; however, in the interim, I really don't like feeling the way I do - it's almost to the point that I even hate to think about eating. :001_smile:

What brand Tomato Soup did you use? I love Tomato Soup, but I think it has some added sugars, no? I'm making my shopping list now!!!

I use Campbell's low sodium tomato soup - in fact, all the Soups I purchased were Campbell's. I didn't look at the sugars quite truthfully -- I was just looking for things I could get down.

I've just sent for a few Protein drinks just to try them out for when I have my surgery. Has anyone tried the following:-

Reflex nutrition whey Refresh RTD - 40g Protein

NSC Pro Shot = 25g protein.

I ordered 5 in total so that I can try the different flavours also.

I would like to source a resonable tasting Protein Drink rather than a shake. This is so I can vary the types of protein liquids I take alongside the food choices that I make. I have a small tub of unflavoured Protein Powder as I'm aware that my taste buds may change after surgery, so I'll wait till after to choose a powder, they are quite expensive to decide you don't like it.

I'd welcome any suggestions particularly from my UK peeps - as sourcing the right type of products here in the UK can be a bit of a mission.

      I can now buy clothes in normal stores again. Admittedly the first time when I started trying on clothes, I really had to keep myself calm. Normally trying on clothes causes me to become SOOO depressed that it take weeks just to get over it. Now, I have to keep myself from not wanting to buy everything!

      Hi, congrats on your surgery!  Saw you went to Dr. Pleatman.  I've been between doing the Lap Band and sleeve.  I was suppose to have a consultation with Dr. Pleatman this month.  So far great experience with his office coordinator Carrie (sp?).   Feeling really scared and nervous about getting the sleeve.  If you can share...how was your experience with Dr. Pleatman's office and the surgery?   Thanks!

      I'm not new, I was an active Lapbander from: 
      March 4, 2013   LAST VISITED
      February 6, 2017 Here I am on October 4, 2019 thinking back over my Lapband journey and how I thought I would be banded for life. Unfortunately, I have been sick for some time, and am on medications; and well my weight has constantly slowly increased. I was 225 pounds when I had my Lapband surgery on Dec. 17, 2010. At least my weight hasn't reached 210. I have been fluctuating between 202-206. For that, I'm grateful. I'm just excited to be able to have another tool to assist me with my weight loss journey. I'm not looking forward to the liquid stage, however.
