How much is too much soup?



Recommended Posts

Hi all, I am 7 days post-op and just started a "full liquid" diet. I tried Tomato Soup, which went great; however, how much of it is too much? My doctor said when I start soft solids I will only eat 2-3 tablespoons at first, but liquids don't apply to this rule. I don't want to overeat but feel like I could eat a little more. I've probably eaten a little more than 1/4 cup so far.

Well, I may have just answered my own question! The full feeling came and I knew it was time to stop. Live & learn :)

I freaked because at 1 week post op I ate a quart of egg drop Soup in 3 hours. But the doc said it was totally normal. Liquids usually slide right through.

Saralyn4: I ate about 1/4 cup which was advised to me by my doctor . It made me feel full as well so it depends but I would think no more than 1/2 a cup. If you feel like your going to fast slow down .

i got nervous because i could almost eat a whole serving of one of the premade Jello pudding cups, but a half of a dannon light and fit yogurt filled me and i can't eat more than like 1/4th cup Soup. but i realized i was eating it too fast. so i slowed down the next time i ate it i felt the feeling.

Thanks everyone. I think I was eating too fast. Next time I will slow it down. Just something I will need to learn to do now!

I've wondered that too a_jap21. I will graduate to puréed in 3 days so we'll see how that goes. My doctors recommendation for puréed was 2-3 tablespoons.

What is it? I'm always looking for new ideas to get some new favors! I had cream of wheat today and it was pretty good. I probably ate 5-6 spoonfuls.

When on full liquids, I could eat a whole can of Progresso Tomato Basil in a day. Usually in 1/2 cup portions. If I never see another cup of that or split pea again (4 wks on liquids) it'll be too soon...
