Yay Starting Soft Foods!



Recommended Posts

I I started soft foods yesterday and the only thing I've tried really so far is a 1 egg omelette and a sprinkle of ff cheese. Am I supposed to get full after a couple of bites? Because I can't eat the whole egg but about half of it, in like a 30 min setting. Kinda freaking out! Love the egg though :D

I just asked this because I was the opposite. I was able at 1 month to eat a whole piece of whole wheat toast with an egg. The answers varied. Mostly people were like you- not able to do the whole thing yet at this point.

Wasn't that the most delicious thing in the world though- after all that time on liquids/purees?!

I had the same experience. Each week I feel like I can eat a little more, but it still amazes me how little I need before I get full. Isn't it crazy? My eyes still haven't caught up to the size of my stomach.

My eyes still think my stomach is still pre-op size. Every time I go to get food I'm like well of course I could handle this much! It's like nothing. And then halfway through I'm like ohhh....can't eat the rest. It's really pretty goofy.

I'm really confused about the food stages. I'm pre-op obviously. The first 2 weeks I'm on full liquids, then solids. I was told solids mean purée? I can image purée 'ing meats. Yuck!

My doctor and nut said that you can eat soft Proteins like fish and eggs and ground meat and just chew them really well to a puréed consistently in your mouth . I was concerned about that too. meat paste sounded sooo gross !

You'll be surprised at what you want after the liquid only stages and how all of a sudden tastes are wonderful that never were.

And, occasionally, things you loved you can't even stand to smell.
