I've been eating cream of wheat for about 5 days. It's been great on my tummy and a nice change from liquids!

I was able to eat it at mushies stage, but don't like it after surgery. Too gritty tasting now. Also way too many carbs. you need to concentrate on Protein first!

I started cream of wheat in mushies. They have one called healthy grains with extra Fiber and Protein. My sleeve loves it. I make it with skim milk that has 12g protein in 8oz so it is 19 grams of protein for my Breakfast.< /p>

Technically I can have it since I progressed to full liquids last week. I have not had it, out of fear that it will not sit right in my tummy. My 2 week follow up with the doc and nut is tomm. I am hoping the nut can provide me with a list of stages and foods. I feel like I am just existing on broth, Jello, popsicles, and Water. The Protein drinks are the worst part, I barely get 25 grams in per day, if that. My nut is very easy going and allows any food after 2 weeks as long as you can tolerate it. I know every doc is different, but such a drastic inconsistency scares me! On the plus side, I'm basically pain free! It's getting better day by day...

ii was not allowed regular foods til 6 weeks but not bread, rice, or Pasta til 12 weeks because they expand and swell. It takes your sleeve 12 weeks to heal according to my doctor. Please be careful if you start eating anything at 2 weeks. I am no doctor, but I have never heard of that so soon. Good luck.

You're are right. And that is exactly why I'm following what MY Dr. has recommended. Cream of Wheat at two weeks or 5 weeks, doesnt matter what others "think" only what the Dr recommends.

With Kaiser cream of wheat, oatmeal, malt-o-meal were all approved on full liquid stage and they were a life saver, easily tolerated. Just make them a little thinner than you usually would, I would make it with a little more Water and then added some nonfat lactaid afterward with maybe a dash of cinammon and a SF sweetener.

Different Dieticians say very different things. My dietician recommended Cream of Wheat for the first weeks after surgery (cooked w/Skim Plus Milk) because it is easy on the sleeve, my surgeon stated I can even have a small amounts of mashed potatoes, though that didnt' work for me, to heavy. I have not really kept to any serious food restrictions only what my sleeve allows me. Protein first which include oatmeal and cream of wheat prepared w/skim plus milk (skim plus has alot of protein), veggies second, sometimes I even have a taste of chocolate here and there, I don't do carb too much anymore because it is to heavy on my stomach. I can still only fit about 5 - 6 oz of food in my sleeve and I don't have patience to weigh food or watch calories, the reason why I got this sleeve is so I wouldn't have to do that anymore or deny myself something I want and I am losing just fine, after the first 4 wks I average a 2.5lbs lose per week which I am very happy with. So you can eat Cream of Wheat as long as you cook it with a skim milk or any low fat milk with Protein (that is if you can drink milk, I know some of us here on the VSG can't do milk).

God Bless. :)

I was allowed hot cereals or soggy cold cereals 2 weeks out, pureed stage. I love it for breakfast, made with a little skim milk. I put some butter and cinnamon sugar on it, or apple butter, and it's amazing.
