pudding, lots of pudding. To the extent that I won't eat pudding again for a very long time. Greek yogurt, homemade cream Soups because the store ones just put too much junk in it. Protein Shakes too, as some one put it, until they were coming out of my ears. I've seen some recipes for some hot and sour Soup, but I never made it. Looking back on it, it would have been delicious. You can Google a ton of good recipes out there, but if you're not one to make things for yourself, your options are pretty limited without exceeding fat/carb limits that should be put on your diet during this time. Just remember these are just temporary times and soon you'll be in pureed, then softs. As time goes by you'll get that Water in without an issue. Welcome to the forum and good luck on your weight loss journey!

I had my surgery on June 17. I'm on full liquids as well and really haven't eaten that much to be honest. I'm trying to stay hydrated and take a bite or two of yogurt, cream of wheat Cereal and sip or two of premier Protein when possible. I'm just not super hungry and think I'm a bit swollen still.

What I did notice is that my surgeon's office provided a different post-op 6 week diet guideline than the one the nutritionist in the hospital provided. The discrepancy concerns me so I'm going to stay with the most restrictive diet until I can discuss it with the surgeon's office next Friday.

Quick and easy is the name of the game for me. I use a 24 oz water bottle and add 2 ind serve packets of Crystal Lite and 1.5 scoops of natual whey Protein. Fill with ice and Water and shake. counts as 3C water and 30g protein and 145 calories. I just love these! Refreshing here in Arizona where it is 115 degrees out!

Ugh broths broths broths. Protein Shakes and lots of Water. I got tired of broth and didn't want to buy canned Soups since it is full of junk. I went to my favorite site once upon a chef and modified her classic Tomato Soup by cutting a few things in half, adding water etc and it was delicious! ! I should buy protien powder and add it to my Soup to see how it tastes
