I had cottage cheese (low fat), Greek yogurt (Total Farg which is high in protein), fish and chicken, thicker Soups pureed, as well as keeping to the full liquids for a while and introducing a new food slowly. I tended to stick to what worked for me, for a number of days which worked well for me. I chose high Protein foods and made sure they were pureed well.


Did you get meal plans from your bariatric team?

I have a question. How long between bites are you suppose to wait to take another bite?

As long as you need. The point is to eat slow in the beginning so you do not upset your tummy. Try counting to 20 & see if that works.

I did yogurt with a small amount of soft fruit like peaches, cottage cheese, hummus, ricotta made up like the filling for stuffed shells. I never did mashed potatoes but I did grits with a little Protein Powder added. I tried to make sure everything I had contained some Protein.< /p>

Thanks everyone, yes I did get a plan of what I could eat but I just can't match the flavour profiles in my head I've never really puréed anything so I'm finding it difficult to come up with things on the spot I'm finding my self super picky and don't really want to make a batch of something if it's not half decent, I really need to start getting my Protein in though.

I started the puree/soft phase on Tuesday. Last night I put some chicken breasts in the slow cooker. I mixed a can of Campbell's Cream of Chicken Soup with a can of Water and poured it over the chicken. Finally, I sprinkled on a little poultry seasoning. I let it cook for several hours until the chicken was fork tender and easy to shred. It was very moist and I was able to use a fork to cut it into smaller pieces as I ate it. I had it with 1/4 cup of mashed potatoes and a few canned green Beans (my NUT says that I can have canned vegetables as long as they are mushy). I still couldn't finish everything but it was soooo good after having nothing but liquids for over two weeks.

Try using an app like lose it or my fitness pal. Logging your foods is the best way to keep track of how you are eating. I use MFP and start each morning by planning what I will eat for the day. In the evening I review, add/subtract what I actually ate. It's been an invaluable tool for me

      WOW by the Grace of God 17 years ago I went to Mexico and had a lap band put on for weight loss and my waist was 64 inches and That’s more than 5 foot around and 18 stone  my weight was 375 pounds. Today I went shopping for not sweats and I succeeded. I found pants and a shirt at an awesome price at Burlington by the way. But the real story here is, today. My waist is 45 inches and my weight is 260. Both incredible numbers but think about this. My waist is almost 20 inches smaller around Wow that’s a brain wrecker.  Still, I love my band  I even celebrate it’s birthday 10-26-06 FYI-it’s kind of like choking yourself, and never letting go. And trying to eat. lol Life is good

      Hi all! I’m Heidi, a Canadian ex-Pat living in Sydney, Australia. I’m doing this surgery because my mom died 10 years ago from obesity, she lived her own 600lbs life.  So at 116kg, it’s time to make sure my daughters don’t lose their mom to obesity.

      Drinking my favorite Premier Protein Shake for breakfast, and planned a nice healthy lunch today. Protein first, Veg second, then fruit, and carbs last.  💪
