Had my sleeve on 12/21 so I am week 2 now, just wondering if anyone else's diet is this limited? (Mine is even more so than what is written I am allergic to artificial sweeteners so that takes off the Protein Shake and anything "diet" or "light") how do you deal with such a limited menu? (Week 3 is pretty much the same add eggs and tuna)

I ate a lot of cottage cheese, oatmeal, coco wheats, apple sauce and mashed potatoes.

yep, it's hard. Yep, mine was just like that...except in week one, I was expected to drink a lot of Protein Shakes and get my 60-80g of Protein.

Doesn't last that long. You'll be back to more foods before you know it.

I know it's tough. Hang in there!

You're allergic to every kind of artificial sweetener?

They do make Protein Shakes without sweeteners as well

And yes the early phases are very limited, that's why it's best to make a routine and stick with what you like. Even if it's boring, it's temporary

Are there any sweeteners you can handle? Can you handle any extracts? I use the vitacost liquid stevia.

Sorry you're having a rough go! ((hugs)). I'd make homemade Bone Broth (chicken and beef) and add Isopure unflavored Protein powder to the broth in order to get my protein in.

I'd blend up frozen strawberries and blueberries in my plain smoothies and then strain them until I didn't have to strain them any more.

Your menu is 100% my menu. But I can have the non-sugar sweeteners and flavor extracts listed. Hang tough!!!!! You got this! Maybe talk to your nutritionist. She told me I could add chicken baby food to my Soups as long as it was pourable.

In week two, my surgeon recommended homemade chicken Soup with dark meat chicken and the veggies chopped small. I also could drink low fat milk and I ate a lot of cheese. Hopefully this helps!!

I’m on week two post op and I was told for the next 3 weeks all I can have is two Protein Shakes a day, one item as a meal ( SF Jell-O or pudding, vegetable Soup with no Pasta or rice blended, plain Greek yogurt, farina and mashed potato made with chicken broth )48 to 96 ounces of Water, one sugar-free ice pop – because I begged for a snack. I’m feeling this

You should be getting close to time for the ricotta bake casserole. I want to make it for my son and I although I haven't had surgery yet. It does sound good. Also check Fluffy Chix Old with the Old In with the New postings, she is going through the different stages as well.

      OMG! I dreamt of cake!!
      As of late, my dreams have been food obsessed. Last night I dreamed of gorging on good old American sheet cake with chocolate frosting. There was white frosting as well. Good thing we can't get that in Sweden! I just hope that I haven't become too engrossed in food. BUT they are only dreams after all.

      Feel like it's time for a status update, I haven't been on here regularly in a while and I need to keep my mindset focused on my goals.
      I haven't weighed myself in ~ 3 weeks.  I think I'm becoming the opposite of "obsessive" about tracking my progress and it could cause me some issues.  The good thing is that there have still been quite a number of NSV's happening that is telling me that I'm still progressing without knowing what the scale says.
      First one is that a belt I bought about 5 weeks ago because all my other belts were too big is also on the last hole so I'll have to buy yet another belt again.  second, I bought new jeans about a month ago and I have a lot more slack in the waist than I did when I purchased them.  I also boarded a plane and had about 8 inches of slack in the belt.  Finally, I hit my goal last week of being able to ride go-carts with my kids.  The last time I tried about 4 years ago, I had to leave because I couldn't fit in the harness.  This was sweet victory and I showed those two how it was done on the race course!!  😈
