Congrats on your new journey! Every plan is different, and every person reacts differently. At 7 days I was on full liquids (which includes yogurt, blended Soups, SF Jello, SF pudding/custard, etc). However a friend was on a different stage at this same point.

I would check with your Dr or NUT to see exactly where they want you, but in my experience NO, you should not have potatoes or eggs yet.

Hang in there though. You are healing & soon enough you will see the benefits of waiting it out.

Pretty much! I ate things like golden mushroom soup, but couldnt have the chunks of mushroom. So throw it in the blender (or ninja) and puree the heck out of it! I also addes spices to my Soups to make them more savory. So, in my mushroom soup I added curry powder, cumin and paprika. In my cream of chicken (blend up those chicken pieces!) I added adobo, garlic & onion powder. In my Tomato I added Italian seasoning, garlic and basil. They tasted sooooo much better!

Hi @@Jlwest! I'm on Day 8! My saving grace right now is Hibachi Soup (aka Japanese Onion Soup). My hubby orders it to go for me (without the garnishes) and it is sooooooo delicious! Not bland like most broths and I actually feel like I'm having real food. I hope you have a Hibachi restaurant nearby!

I do and I might do that lol not sure that I remember liking it though .... Wanna say it tasted like chicken broth so I dunno about that lol ... Iv just come to the conclusion that I'm just going to take it one day at a time ... Tomorrow I'll have something to eat and when tomorrow comes I'll tell myself tomorrow I'll eat .... Til next Thursday anyway ... Can't come soon enough

Also thank you for explaining that blended Soup thing ... Prolly gonna give that a shot and see what happens :)

        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.
