When I was allowed to eat egg I hard boiled it and added some non-fat Greek yogurt to make an egg salad kind of thing. Just mash it up well and chew, chew and then chew again.
I'm struggling with Water and Protein too 4 weeks out. I'm managing about 1 litre but I'm just not hungry so having a hard time with the protein thing. I cannot get past the gag reflex with Protein Shakes so that's out. However my partner's ex-wife (we're friends and she's 8 weeks ahead of me with RNY -even the same surgeon!) gave me some pure unflavoured non-gluggy Gelatin based protein that I've been adding to my supper, so that has to be helping. It's called Peptipro gelatin. It's from Australia so I'm not sure if they deliver to the US but you should be able to find something similar online.
I've just ordered some Peptipro...hopefully it is ok. Thanks for the tip!

I'd be really interested in what your doctor says

So dr on Tuesday he says for now only do two oz of anything at a time and he is watching my gallbladder. Says some of the recent pain from eating could be that. So we will see😏

Cindih576, my nurse Practioner told me I could up to 6 oz at a time, told her "you don't know Precious Pouch very well, I tried to drink 6 oz- I was in misery for over a hour, thought I had popped something until the pain left. I will keep on with 4 oz if it is All The Same!" She conceded that was OK,better cause I'm not into misery. I have enough of that with the stricture! Tomorrow maybe Dr Noria 😷will make me all better!

Ok, I'm now 30 days post op and have completely lost the will to eat anything. This morning while I was looking for what to take to work every option just made me feel ill. I'm forcing down my daily All Bran (30 g) with milk but only because if I don't eat it every day I'll get bunged up and that's horrible. I know I'll get malnourished if I don't eat, but there is nothing that I see that I actually can face eating. The thought of an egg makes me gag, the chicken breast I tried last night made me nauseous, the tuna with mayo yesterday lunch made me nauseous, sweet potato (my favourite thing!) just tasted horrible. I don't know what to do....Any ideas anyone?

Oh, and my weight loss has stalled. For the last week I have stayed within 100 g. 97.4, 97.3, 97.4

I can eat 5.5 oz of yogurt without any issues. I can drink at least one or two Protein Shakes a day and I am trying to drink my Water. I am still having trouble introducing more solid foods. I have been successful with one or two pieces of canned vegetables.

I’m feeling a lot like you. So far the ONLY things I can eat besides liquids like chicken broth is refried Beans, yogurt and cottage cheese. I tried cod the other night and it felt horrible. Tried chicken that made me nauseous. This is getting harder. 🙄. I am sticking to liquids and blended for now

@MMME have you tried Soup? It’s been one of my go-to foods. Easier to get down than solids.

I haven't yet but I have a recipe for a Soup that I love so I'll make a pot of that tonight. I simply have no interest in eating anything :(

I might try going back to blended and liquids again for a few days to see if that sparks an interest in food.

It's just really odd to me, that for over 40 years I've been addicted to food but it's like I'm not only cured of the addiction but the "drug" I used to love repulses me now. I'm sure it's just a phase, but I really don't want to make myself ill by not eating anything. So... soup, yogurt and some I'll try some Beans.

Thanks very much for your suggestions. My partner tries to help but he just doesn't get the fact that my tastebuds have changed so dramatically in the past month that everything tastes bad. I'm even off coffee!

I am going to make some chicken noodle Soup with canned veggies and baby Pasta and lots of seasoning in it so I can freeze it. I start back to work on Wednesday and I have to have stuff I want to eat there.

      Tonight, I swallowed my semi-horse-pill-sized multi-vitamin without wanting to hurl!
      So long, expensive chewable multi-vitamin, from now I can buy the cheaper, tablet vites at Costco.
      Next: try to swallow the actual horse-pill-sized calcium pills without wanting to hurl....

      1 month and 4 days from surgery and not losing. Actually have gained a couple pounds. Can't figure out what I am doing incorrectly. Have an appointment in a couple weeks hopefully she can sort me out. I don't know if I am not eating enough, not drinking enough, not walking enough. I get 60g of protein min a day, most days more. I have lost only 12 pounds since my surgery and I honestly thought I would be further along then this. Feeling regretful the last couple of weeks and I know it's early on but I feel like my honeymoon is being wasted.

      Hey ya'll. I've been trying to get more protein in my diet. I started tracking what I ate this week and I like it so far. It sort of feels like a game. I've also been trying to eat alot slower. That helps.  My coworker who hasn't seen me in a week said I was slimmer. That made me feel good! lol Tomorrow, I have 3 appointments. I have my weight management, my psych and my visit to my primary care. They recently changed my primary care doctor so I'm looking forward to meeting this new person. Tomorrow is a big deal for me. I promised my nutritionist that I'd lose 3 pounds the next time she saw me. (I don't know why I said that) She told me she believed me because of the determination in my voice. idk ya'll. This whole process is scary. I'm scared of starting over. Last month, I weighed 205.5 LETS SEE how much I weigh in at tomorrow. Send positive vibes ❤️
