Pre-op pudding allowed, using skim milk ok?



Recommended Posts

My pre-op diet lists sugar free pudding. I bought some Jello pudding mix. It calls for the addition of skim milk, but skim milk is not specifically liared on my diet. I assume it is ok as yoghurt and cottage ch÷ese are allowed. I'm going to try a recipe I found to make the cottage cheese more tasty- 2 c fat free cottage ch÷ese, 2 c skim milk, and a 6 serving box of fat free Sugar Free Chocolate pudding in blender, then to fridge to set.

They have Jello, no sugar added pudding, in the refrigerated section of the grocery store, they are only 50 cal each. I suck at making pudding anyway, and for being sugar free, it's delicious!

If the pudding itself and other dairy is allowed, I'm sure this is okay as an ingredient. Portion Control though... The nutritionist probably had the snack-pack size in mind.

I honestly can't taste a difference between regular, sugar free, and fat free. When I mix it myself, I always use skim milk.

I have been making this every weekend for about a year and a half now. My husband asked me yesterday "Why dont you just buy the pudding packs?" I looked at the cottage cheese nutrition info and answered "13 g Protein per serving difference".

I make this in a blender. Mix the cottage cheese and milk first after spearing the cottage cheese film on the blender blade assembly top to minimize spray on the inside of the lid which helps with clean up. Then add dry powder mix.

After removing the pudding from the blender with a spatula I make a smoothie in the "dirty" blender to help clean up.

Unsweetened almond milk is good too and you can whip it up almost like whipped cream

      Today I had my first post surgery update. I haven't eaten anything other than the occasional popsicle and my daily protein shakes in 2 weeks. I have lost 30lbs in those 2 weeks. The doctor is happy. I am starting to see changes I have no more swelling in my legs after sitting at my work desk all day. I don't get to eat an egg till next week. I have my total carb and protein counts so when I can start eating I know how much I can have. My surgeon / doctor has been great thru this whole process. He listens and gives good information about what to expect and what I should be doing. He has an amazing team here in Boise. I am glad I went with him to do this life changing process.

      Looking on the bright side: both a loss of 1lb/week and a loss of 4lbs/week are LOSSES.  So long as the trendline is going down, I'm happy.

      Thought I'd give an update.  I'm over half way to my goal, which is awesome, and I've lost over 12 inches in my waist!  The weight isn't coming off as quickly as I had hoped, but I am also not exercising and still not getting even close to the amount of water I should be drinking, so slow weight loss is not all that surprising.  Sometimes I'm just "over it" and try to eat huge portions like I used to, but, thankfully, I feel the restriction of my smaller stomach and can't go crazy.  In general, I'm quite good, just trying to live my life.
      I now have a motivation to start exercising, though... I booked a plane ticket to Germany for the end of September, so this is a good chance to get strong, get hydrated, and reach my weight goal.
