I'm just over two weeks out and on full liquids. Finding it kinda surprising that I can eat about 5 oz of greek yogurt with no problem at all. Is this due to the soft consistency? I'm just wondering why I'm not feeling stuffed by this volume? I haven't tried anything dense so am assuming that will be completely different experience. Should I limit my yogurt to 2 oz or go ahead and eat the container?

You probably won't feel restriction until you get to solid foods. You should figure out a portion size that satisfies you. I never eat too feel full that was my mistake before surgery, now I measure my portions out and just east to be satisfied. Good luck

I had the same thing. the greek yougurt was the easiest to eat as well as scrambled egg (after the Fluid stage) yet other things like pureed meats, pudding , refried Beans were difficult. your stomach will tell you what you can have. for me yogurt saved me becasue i was having a tough time getting enough Protein.< /p>

Eat as much yogurt as you want and need to supplement any other sources of Protein and fluids to meet your requirements. Just make sure it is nonfat Greek yogurt and has no added sugar or fruit. When on liquids, I drank no Protein Drinks and got most of my protein from Greek yogurt. There was no specific limit on how much I could have at any one time.This was sanctioned by my nutritionist.

Wow, I didn't know that. I've only had one per day. I will bump that up now. This will help my Protein a lot!

This is the post I meant to quote... I didn't know I could eat more than a small amount of things like yogurt.

        I haven't pooped in a weed and I'd love a 4 pound poo right now lol

        Lol, yeah, I've been known to drop 3-ish lbs after a good (and long awaited) poop.

        .....or even after a moderate to severe dumping episode. yikes.

      I met with my surgeon on Friday.. I've completed all my tests and all my nutrition meetings as well as meeting the weight loss requirements for my insurance. We are officially submitting to insurance for approval and I was given a surgery date of January 16th 2020 (13 days before my birthday!) Fingers crossed all goes through

      Ok, now im getting old...my body gets me up at my normal 5am dog walk even when it's the weekend, vacation, and most importantly when I'm sick. So now that I have more energy, my body wants to make sure I suffer even longer during the day when I have a cold! Damn being healthy again! (:D)
