I just started my puree diet and having a difficult time getting in my Protein. Tonight I opened a can of black Beans drained them and then smashed them as they cooked on the stove. Top it with a lil cheese. It was so good and didn't feel like I was eating baby food. :D

Let me just add some things I eat

I am 3.5 months out and have been released to eat almost everything except salad and steak.

eggs, cream of wheat, Greek nonfat yogurt, all kinds of cheese, low sodium lunch meat, potato, avocado, humus, chicken, Pork roast, cooked fresh veggies, sugar free pudding, almond milk, inspire Protein, Quest Protein Bars, cauliflower rice, tofu. Almost anything my sleeve will tolerate. My favorite treat is 1 cup unsweetened almond milk, vanilla protein and a sugar free Crush orange packet blended with ice it tastes like an orange dream Popsicle!

3.5 months out here:

My surgeon has emphasized that my meals should be 1/2 cup in volume. Steak, chicken and fish are what he quotes as my best choices.

Why Greek yogurt?

Greek yogurt has a lot more Protein than regular yogurt. In fact, many of the things we think of as yogurt aren't really yogurt and don't even say yogurt on the container (Yoplait Light). Check the label for protein, fat, and sugar and you'll be surprised at the differences.

Why Greek yogurt?

      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.  💪
