Hello all!

I was wondering . . . does anybody "juice" here to supplement their vegetable and fruit intake?

If so, how has that worked for you?

Thanks for the help!

I haven't, but what a GREAT idea!

So, since I am on full liquids now and I love and miss my fruits and vegetables, I went out and bought a juicer.

This morning I made a lovely carrot/apple juice (3 large carrots, 2 small apples, 1 celery = full 8 oz glass). WOW!!!

First of all, it is soooooo filling - so I diluted it some. And second, if you are longing for some FLAVOR or SWEETNESS, or TANG, well, then I suggest a juicer.

I really am happy about being able to add veggies to my liquid phase instead of just broth and Soups.

I am still keeping in mind to limit my sugars so no pure fruit juices for me. I really wanted to vegetables anyway.

I had that same thought myself, along with Baby foods. I think it's a great idea too!!!! Just make sure you get your protiens first,

Did you add up the carbs and calories for that juice? Usually a lot of carbs/cals in those.

JudyJudyJudy and Cajun,

I am in the liquid phase right now and my diet is not calling for any Protein until the third week. So, I am not counting carbs/sugars right now.

I am on the full liquids without Protein stage. Next week, I will make sure I complete Proteins BEFORE adding something like a veggie drink.

BTW, it was 3 carrots, 1 celery stick, 2 small granny smith apples. That was all the carb and sugars I had for that day.

Thanks!

As a bandster, I have thought about it many times, just havent gotten around to it. I dont buy fruit juice like orange juice becuase the kids just guzzle it. But I have difficulty getting 2 fruit, five veg every single day. Not needing to lose anymore, i could easily afford the calories, sugar and carbs in fruit juice.

      I just had a teaspoon of hummus with a teaspoon of avocado topped with a teaspoon of greek yogurt and it. was. GLORIOUS. I'm four days out and my surgeon gave me the greenlight to work in small amounts of pureed food.

      Kind of nervous, as expected. One month out from surgery!

      😫 Hi, I’m new to bariatricpal! I am 8 days post op VSG. I am struggling very badly. I’ve been so emotional because I feel like I’m doing wrong. I’m afraid I’ll eat or drink to fast or eat the wrong thing. I’ve been on Pinterest and YouTube constantly for help. I have followed all of my surgeons and dieticians instructions. I just don’t know if my body is getting enough. Today, I am weak, sore, and just exhausted.

        It passes!! Everyone goes though it! It is a short term emotion! I'm almost five years post op! You made the right decision! Don't focus on the change right now. Try to entertain your mind. What your feeling only last about a week. It's related to your body adjusting and you mind adjusting. You got this!!

        I agree with Tara it's hard right now but it gets better do t forget your hormones will be all over the place you may even feel depressed. Be kind to yourself reach out and talk to people how you are feeling .
