Funny, that what they keep telling me to drink and the full sugar one to help with hydration and calories as I can't tolerate the Protein Shakes anymore

Al, I have not been able to hold down Protein Shakes since my surgery on Dec 29th,

I drink mostly Power-aide it has B-3 B-6 & B12. I also drink an occasional Propel or if I drink Water it has to have flavoring also, regular water just doesn't go down well. My Dr & Nut said it was more important that I stay hydrated than anything...You are still in my prayers.

yeah they told me yesterday hydration over Protein. It's been almost 3.5 months since surgery, I just want this fixed and be able to eat. I can't live on liquids my whole life nor do I want to. I'm sorry you are having a rough go too

      My name is Jose and I am from the UK, I had a gastric bypass a month ago so I am at the beginning of my weight loss journey.
      I would like to know how many calories I should be eating a day to stay healthy, thank you for your time

        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.
