I think i’ve been doing the liquid stage all wrong!!!!!



Recommended Posts

So....can you please tell me which phase cottage cheese and apple sauce falls in???

They gave it to me at the hospital the day after surgery so I assumed it was considered a full liquid item. I have been eating it ever since. Am I wrong??????

Also, how many people start their purée foods a few days early? I have two days to go and all I want is something new!!!

On my plan those would count as purees. But if your doctor was ok with the hospital diet, I'm sure you're fine.

Don’t panic about it. All doctors have different rules!

in general, it best to follow his plan but the plan’s main purpose is teaching you about eating, more than it is about your new tummy. I was on solid food (chicken, fish) before leaving hospital!

Thanks for all of your responses! It’s just so confusing sometimes and I don’t want to eat something that I’m not supposed to!

for the first week I was liquid only, but in the 2nd week I started to nibble on really soft things like scrambled egg and pureed stewed Tomato. it was fine.

I was under the impression (from my own surgery and lots of others) that bypass patients start purees the day they leave the hospital. Sleeves get stuck on liquids for a month after surgery (typically).

Man, I would have loved to start purees right away!!! I was instructed to have full liquids for two weeks which is thankfully over now!!!!!

Just highlights the continued variations in pre and post op diets... I was on purees for a month... it REALLY started to suck...

So true! I think the repetition of any foods become tiresome after a while. I’m still loving my purees right now but I’m only on day 3 so I’m sure it will start to suck any day now! Lol

It really depends on the clinic, I think...I had bypass this past Monday. I was told to do one week of Clear Liquids only, two weeks of full liquid diet, then two weeks of pureed foods, then at last solid foods five weeks in...

        It will be interesting to watch as this theory develops. Thanks for posting!

      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!!  😈

      I just looked through all my old pants after my pre-op pants started getting to big. Keep in mind that I wear men's pants (usually cargos) because I am so tall 5'10"/5'11" ish. I also find that men's baggies tend to fit me better.
      I started out at a 44 in waist pant and quickly found that I was back down to my 42's. So even when thise got to be too big, I had to start pulling old clothes out of storage. After finding my 38's, I thought that these would not yet fit, but when I tried them on, they fit perfectly. I also found some older pants that now fit better than I remembered. What a relief! It's not like I can pop down to the store like I could do in the US and the styles here in Sweden are all skinnt jeans which I cant stand. I also found some 36's, but I'm not mentally ready to try those on yet. The biggest challenge will be buying women's clothing again.

      slow and steady wins the race.  don't get discouraged and just keep at it. Let your sleeve do its job and try not to stress yourself out.
      hope you are all having a great summer and enjoying what your sleeve has given you.
      just got back from a wedding in OR. and man am i afraid to get on the scale

        Great reminder about how fast you can lose weight. The mind games we play with ourselves are the worst.
