When did you start purée?



Recommended Posts

Not soft, mashed foods, but pureed. I'm wondering when you all started on them. I started on day 8 (yesterday) first just applesauce in addition to my liquids and thinned strained Soups.< /p>

My team has a conservative plan - liquids for four weeks, then purees, and no high carb foods like applesauce -- on purees, we are only allowed high Protein foods. All of our plans are so different!

Strict doctor here, not till day 21 can I begin the pureed phase.

Purees from day 15 for me.

I had 2 weeks on liquids post op, then 2 weeks runny purees, then 2 weeks soft/mushy, then gradual progression onto solids.

I was adding stock and yoghurt or sauce to my savoury purees. They had to roll off the spoon easily.

To Breakfast purees I was adding runny yoghurt and soft fruit like bit of banana or papaya. I was stewing pears at that stage. Plus I was adding Protein powder to all purees, had an unflavoured high Protein Powder.

Still use it in the mornings with my regular yoghurt and grated 1/4 apple, these days.

After 4 weeks of Clear Liquids, weeks 2-4 including Protein Shakes, puree started at week 5, soft foods at week 7, finally start adding regular foods at week 9.

Purees and other soft type Proteins (eggs, yogurt, etc.) in the hospital and beyond for the first month. I ignored the pureed lettuce (ewwww..) they served there.

I hate to ask this. But I'm starting my puree stage this week. Is Peanut Butter a no no? I think i saw someone talking about it a while ago, i don't remember where i saw people chatting about it. Im just asking because it's soft and 8g of Protein for 2tbsp. But the texture is sticky. Im just trying to get the hang of this. Im still learning to make good choices. Haven't eaten any just wondering for the future if anyone has experience. If it's a good option or not

I never tried it during puree stage, or even now.

I was told by my dietician that the purees have to be runny enough to roll off the spoon.

Perhaps if you mixed it with runny yoghurt and blasted it in the NutriBullet, it could possibly work.

However, a good Protein powder added to Chobani yoghurt will give you about 35g for 1/2 cup serve.

I did use Peanut Butter but by adding to shakes. I have since switched to PB2 which is in a powder form but 80% less calories. It still flavors the shakes but better for calorie intake.

      So my surgery anniversary date is on the 24th of this month, but I had my 1-year follow up early with my surgeon this morning (I have another 1-year followup at the hospital on Monday to get my bloodwork and labs done).
      Anyhoo...my surgeon was very pleased with my results (and so where the office staff apparently, because 3 of the front desk ladies came by my exam room to give me props/high fives/generally gawk at me).
      But get this: he asked if I would be willing to come in for a future photoshoot so that I could be on a poster! And I was all, ummmm....no thanks, LOL.

      Today was a really tough day and I turned to food (and a watered down glass of wine). The interesting part was that I felt REALLY full after eating half my go to cheat snack, tortilla chips with cheese. So the GBP is doing its job!

      The only way I can tell that I'm losing weight is from the scale and my clothes "getting bigger".
