Recommended Posts

S/p RNY 2/7/18 and i am not feeling so great lately. I started soft foods. I think it is increased gas but idk it is discomfort when eating. Almost feel like going back to puréed foods or liquids. I am ok some day but today was a tough day. Almost feel nauseas and with a belly ache and I have not over ate nor drank enough liquids. I did overwork myself yesterday. I push myself to exceed 5000 steps a day and go up and down my stairs at least 4 times within the day. I feel like I am exhausted but physically however today is different I feel exhausted and sick. Anyone having similar symptoms?

Instead of cake you could do a sugar free pudding cake with layers or frozen yogurt ice cream that you make out of yogurt yum! Maybe a taco party idk if you like tacos but you know Beans cheese soft puréed meats yum!!! You won’t be able to eat much, but you know tacos means party lol. I am sure anything you do will be great... it’s your birthday Celebrate your success!!!

How is everyone doing so far?

I'm almost 4 weeks out and so far so good. Still struggling to meet my Protein goals but man it was nice to finally eat some solid food after 3 weeks of liquid/puree.

So, not that I have the answers, but this is what I was doing. Maybe it will help?

1Brekky - decaff coffee and 9-10oz Premier Protein as Creamer (23g P)

2nd Brekky - 1 egg softboiled (6g P)

MS - Egg salad (6g P)

L - Egg Salad (6g P)

AS - Yogurt/Cottage Cheese/Applesauce (15g P)

D - 1.5oz dense protein of some kind (9g P)

BS - Yogurt/Cottage Cheese/WF Blueberry Syrup (10g P)

75g P for the day! Voila!!! It's a lot of meals, but in the beginning we're only supposed to eat 1/4c of food max. As our volume increases, meals decrease. And you're only taking in 23g of P from Protein Drinks even only 2-3 weeks out?

Hope that helps. Just word: MAKE SURE your poop chute is cleaned out from all the stuck-in crap from surgery or you will have constipation/blockages like nobody's beeswax!!!
