Personally I did not and do not eat low fat or low sugar/ sugar free anything post op.

Everyone is different but it has worked for me. Fat is not a concern when you can only take in 400 calories a day so early on. When I can eat 5 bites of something I want it not to have added sugar because the fat has been removed, and I don't want the toxic fake sugar in sugar free stuff. I also think that you crave less when you have for example... full fat cheese instead of low fat. Its much more satisfying.

I ate sugar free, fat free everything since I was 8 years old and I ended up 262lbs. I have maintained my weight loss goal +/- 5lbs for an entire year now NOT eating fat free and low fat stuff. This is just my opinion.

Other ideas in the mushy phase:

Greek Yogurt

Egg Salad-

Re-fried Beans with a little cheese and sour cream.

Cream of wheat made with milk- amps up the Protein

Baby Bel cheese-- if you let it get slightly warm it melts in your mouth. each has 6 grams of protein- I lived off of these for months!

I'm on that stage (but I love cottage cheese, fortunately - it's a great Protein source!). Mashed potatoes were also on my list, as well as pureed poultry or fish (I haven't tried the purees, though, because frankly, eating pureed chicken or fish sounds revolting to me!) I found that the regular fruit-flavored yogurts had a lot of sugar, so I've tried mixing some of my flavored Protein powder with plain, fat-free Greek yogurt (Chobani) which was OK - I tried 1 scoop to a cup of yogurt, but that was a bit strong. Next time I'll try half as much Protein Powder. I'm guessing that, since they say "fat-free puddings" that the low fat option might be better for Soups, but I suppose it depends just how fatty they are. Pureed cooked non-stringy vegetables were also on my list - they said 'baby-food or baby-food consistency'. Also somewhat revolting, but less so to me than the pureed meats. For the most part, if it's a soft food, I chew it until it's mush, then swallow - seems just as good as pureeing it to me, and I haven't had any problems with it.

Hope this helps!

I do use artificial sugars, but, like Sleeve of Steel, I use full fat versions of everything else. Most of her food list is identical to mine except that I don't eat Cream of Wheat. I adore eggs in all their forms right now, and a small omelete is a great way to get in a few bites of veggies for me.

I was sleeved a week ago and am also going to begin some diet changes. I also cannot stand to think of pureed meats... too gross, lol. And I don't care for cottage cheese. Are some mashed potatoes ok? Do I want to go down the road of starches?? Any other ideas for soft menu???

Mashed potatoes are on my stage 3 (after full liquids) diet and are good mixed with plain greek yogurt (tastes like sour cream, but has a nice bit of protein!) Also, I know you don't like cottage cheese, but if you mix 1/4 c cottage cheese with an egg and a little cold Water and beat it up and scramble it, it's very tasty (seasoned to you liking) and really doesn't taste anything like cottage cheese.

Well, probably too late now - try to sip a little Water. Next time take it SLOW. It's getting easier now, but when I first started eggs last week, I could eat much less of them than I was able to eat of full liquids, and had to eat them slower or it got uncomfortable.

Try a chewable gas x tablet. It helped me with a few foods that gave me those symptoms when I started solids. Try eating slower and pausing longer between bites. The first time it happened to me, I was convinced I was never going to be able to eat solids normally again. It will get easier.
