Hooray! I was so excited to star my puree...you would think that I was eating for the first time ever. So some things that i eat are

Egg salad, made by pureeing eggs, a little miracle whip, sweet relish, mustard and salt and pepper

Crab salad, made by pureeing imitation crab, miracle whip, papricka, onion powder

Tuna/chicken salad, made by pureeing the canned tuna or chicken with miracle whip, sweet relish, salt and pepper. Basically any kind of salad you can puree as long as you dont add the Pasta.

Also, a receipe I heard from another member was to mix a can of tuna, 1/2 cup cottage cheese, and a 1/2 cup of refried Beans and blend it all togeher. I did it and it was actually pretty good.

You can try ricotta chees, parmasean and some no/low sugar marinara sause, heated up or baked.

I have also made refried Beans with greek yogart as sour cream and then some cheese melted on top.

I have also had some keifer drinkable ygart.

I went to Aldi and i bought some frozen crab cakes and put them in the microwave and then just pureed it wiht some lemon juice. Not sure if you like seafood but it was super yum.

I also have some canned Soup that is high in Protein and lower in fat that i have pureed and sometimes I add unflavored Protein power to it to make it higher in protien.

You can get oatmeal, malt o meal or anything like that too and make that in the microwave and add milk or some gree yogart and a bit of cinnamon and that is good too.

Oh and one last thing... you can puree a little bit of fruit or use baby food with the greek yogart and or cottage cheese for a high protein punch too,.

and I almost forgot i bought some laughing cow cheese triangles...they are super creamy and easy to eat along with Peanut Butter but that is only occasionally cuase its high in fat but for a little treat once and while its good.

I have been at this for a week so you can pretty much puree anything as long as its high in protein. Let me know if you have other questions.

I eat a 1/2 a cup. Most of the time i can get it all down but sometimes i dont eat quite as much cause i start feeling that icky pressure in the chest feeling. I was sleeved on the 17th of April and have to do this puree stuff for another week. I spoke to the nutritionist today to be sure i was still on the right track and she said that i can eat that amount and if i needed more or less I could do that too but just to eat to satisfaction not discomfort. I was paranoid I was not eating right becuase i have had a stall and its making me mad, LOL

Thanks - I'm in my 3rd week and in pureed phase, but I've been struggling with everything and I can't eat enough to get a good amount of Protein through food which is bumming me out. I think I just need to relax and keep trying to do the best I can.

Some things seem to go down easier. try Soups perhaps they do better i think and you can add Protein to them if you need to. and the greek yogart has a ton and that goes down easy too,

Puree was a struggle for me. I lived on cottage cheese, ricotta cheese, greek yogurt, mashed potatoes and carnation (sugar free) instant Breakfast drink. I only had to endure this for 2 weeks thank goodness.

I eat the 2% cottage cheese... prarie farms or deans are the only 2 that taste good and are not thick.

I use the ricotta cheese and mix it with low sugar marinara. or i mixit with a little splenda and almond extract.

I have been stalled for a little over a week it is so frustrating....I feel so upset that i am doing all that i am suposed to be doing and i get nothing for all this hard work ya know! oh well i hope it will move soon. grrrr

      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.
