Phase 3/soft food



Recommended Posts

I am heading to 3 week post op for gastric sleeve. I am unfortunately very texture sensitive with food so makes this phase difficult and scary. One food i cannot tolerate is eggs. Any suggestions for alternative soft Breakfast ideas, or any other meals for picky eaters???

Yogurt? Tuna, pureed. chili, cottage cheese or ricotta. There is nothing wrong with having a lunch meal for breakfast.

I liked oatmeal thinned with unsweetened applesauce for breakfast.

Also, per my team - a lot of people really dislike the textures of the soft food phase, so if you'd rather stay for an extra week or so on full liquids, that won't hurt anything. Or just do one soft meal a day. You can stay with a shake or yogurt for breakfast if that's what you're doing already.

Baked Ricotta with Marinara

This is the one that everyone RAVES about!

8 oz of ricotta cheese

½ cup grated Parmesan

1 large egg, beaten

1 teaspoon Italian seasoning

Salt & pepper to taste

½ cup marinara sauce

½ cup shredded mozzarella cheese

Mix ricotta cheese, parmesan, beaten egg, seasonings together and place in a oven proof dish. Pour marinara on top and top with mozzarella cheese. Bake it in the oven @ 450 for about 20-25 minutes (best) or nuke it till hot and bubbly.

Can you do the liquid egg whites. I found I tolerate them better than eggs. I add a little salsa or homemade pesto or just even a little cottage cheese and it goes down well.

Will you try tofu? It takes on whatever flavor you put in it.

I'm not entirely sure either of us will be able to eat a full packet, at this point, and it's going to be SUPER important to make sure the oats get cooked all the way before eating it, but something I've always liked when I've been on low-carb plans in the past are these Protein oatmeals: https://store.bariatricpal.com/collections/breakfast/products/bariatricpal-hot-protein-breakfast-apple-cinnamon-oatmeal

(Full disclosure: I didn't buy this exact brand; nor did I buy it here. I got the ProtiDiet brand and really liked it. But I imagine BP's is similar, and I'll probably try it when I run out of the ProtiDiet ones. Also, the apple cinnamon flavor is better if you add some additional cinnamon and ginger.)

I noticed I had a box in my pantry today, so I'm probably going to give this a try for tomorrow's breakfast.

      What's your experience w/the Dumping Syndrome?
      How long did it last?
      How did you cope w/it?
      Has the dumping syndrome gotten worse each time more as the years go by?
       
      I had the Gastric Bypass in 7/2015. The last couple of times i got the Dumping Syndrome twice last year, and once this year have been the worst. My last one was on Easter Sunday. I felt Fatigue, nauseous, gagging, shortness of breath, laid down holding my tummy, wanting to cry, feeling desperate, it got to a point where i basically was unconscious. Is it normal to fall asleep without no warning and waking up out of nowhere to "wth happened, how long was i out for"? It's gotten scary, and don't know if this is part of the dumping syndrome. I've had more times but not as bad as the last couple of times. 😢

      When I get my surgery and lose weight I might write a book about my weight loss surgery so I can help anyone who started at my weight, or who think about getting the surgery.
