I will be 5 weeks out tomorrow and I eat regular foods. I get my Protein from solid Proteins. I drink at least 64 oz of Water and I eat tuna with lite or no fat mayo, extra lean groud beef, lots of veggies like broccoli, green Beans, peas, occassional carrots, flaky fish, tomatoes, salad with fat free low cal dressing or vinegar and oil, yogurt, sugar free Jello, sugar free popsicles, sugar free fudgesicles for when I want chocolate, extra thin turkey breast lunch meat, fat free cheese, sugar free lemon ice tea with no caffeine, hot green tea with splenda and no caffeine. I plan to try chicken next as I would love to add that to my salad. I hope this helps!

you've really lost 56 lbs in a month? wouldn't that amount be unhealthy?

I seem to be answering this question alot lately. YES I have lost 56 lbs in a month and NO it isnt unhealthy. My Doctor is keeping a very good eye on me and I only weigh in at his office. I am a High Weight High BMI patient so it is normal for me to be dropping the weight because of the lower calories I am consuming and that I exercise everyday. I hope that answers your question, please feel free to ask me anything.

Tonya :D

I am enjoying the low calorie 300 to 350 frozen meals that left me starving before being banded. My favorites are rice/beans/sour cream ,corn pudding, and escalloped chicken casserole.

I also enjoy full flavored Soups . Favs are bean with bacon and new england chowder.

good luck

I am not a calorie counter. I am 5 weeks out and there is nothing that I can't eat. I also enjoy a diet soda every day. I have lost 20 lbs. since banding, so I'm apparently doing the right things. Your weight loss is amazing. It could be that if you are bigger you lose a lot faster...I have no clue on this one. Your loss is magnificent and I applaud you. I only spent a few days on liquids, advanced to mushies and onto solids. I obviously don't have a lot of restriction because I can take all my pills in one handful. I can also eat anything (although I don't eat much of it). I truly believe psychologically at least the band is doing the job. My problems may increase two-fold when I get my first fill on the 19th. We shall see :D My dr. OK'ed the diet drinks...said if they didn't cause me gas go for it. I've never had a gas pain, even after surgery.

I wish you the best of luck. You are off to an awesome start. I would definitely just follow the guidelines your surgeon gives you as everyone is different.

Best of luck to you

        Hello Joset, why haven't you been given a diet plan? Did you have your surgery in the UK? Every surgeon has a different diet, and no two people are on the same one. Weird I know. Contact your team if you can

        Mine was two weeks clear liquids

        Two weeks on soups, milk shakes and broths all with out lumps

        two weeks on pureed foods { I couldn't stomach this step }

        two weeks on soft foods like Protein yogurt, stewed mince and veg, soft scrambled eggs. Pate on hard crackers

        Then onto any food I fancied. If you struggle on any step or with any foods go back a step for a few days. Eggs, salmon and chicken are hard for beginners.

        Sorry I missed your original post, hope you are still on here.
