1 gram for every inch you are tall minimum. It is harder in those beginning weeks that is why it is so important to use a tracker like my fitness pal to help you track your progress.

I ask because the scale has not moved in a week. And the dr still has me on full liquids, Soups, and soupy oatmeal, and only 1 Protein a day. And I know thst people some people are on more solid food.

Each Dr is different. I'll be 6 weeks out on Tuesday 6/16. I see the nutritionist on Wednesday and she is going to put me on soft foods. But actually I'm already eating just about everything. 4 weeks on full liquids was way too long. I'm eating healthy though! ????

I was at a stall for 10 days. Its annoying, but your scale will start moving don't worry! As of today I'm 36 pounds down. Best of luck to you!

I'm just completing my 3rd week and it has not been easy getting food in. I've tried moist chicken (Pouch gets uncomfortable if not moist so I eat meat from leg), salmon (went down good), ham (will never eat again), hamburger (nope), shrimp (nope), natural Peanut Butter or laughing cow cheese on a triscit (awesome), cottage cheese (good). Going to try this week albacore tuna, cod and green Beans. Very little amounts of all. Pouch is sensitive. Trying yo get as much Protein in as I can, but it all depends on your pouch. It will tell you believe me.

I just wanted to put out there that if you are a lover of Peanut Butter, I am really enjoying Matrix Peanut Butter Cookie Protein Shake. Yum ! Its the only Protein shake I actually look forward to. I mix it with unsweetened almond milk.

@KQ46 I've just started on soft foods and after just a few bits (less than 3 oz) I feel like it's stuck in my chest! That's not a pouch thing right?

I'm at 18 days out, and have hit the wonderful stall. I have not lost anything in 3 days, am only eating about 45-50g of Protein and barely 40 ounces of Water a day because I get full so quick, and the water seems to just sit in my pouch sloshing around. I have only lost 12 pounds since my surgery, total 25 and am starting to fall into the doubting curse I have read so much about. Hoping the turn around happens soon.

Premier Protein has 30g of Protein. Add 1/4-1/2 tsp of BP2 (for the chocolate peanut bitterness) I am 8 months out and I have been drinking 2 a day for over a year.

Itd a pouch thing and it hurts. Have to throw it up. I was told eating to fast and not chewing it up enough. 3 Oz that's good.i don't think I'm getting that much in. Start with 1 Oz. Ex.. chicken I cut into real small pieces. I had some beast meat Saturday. I think I ate too much. It didn't seem like it until pain and burping started...uugh.

        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.
