How Often to Eat on Purée??



Recommended Posts

Hello everyone! So I’m on the purée stage and was wondering how often I should eat... I have my 2oz cups setup and ready with egg salad, chicken salad, apple sauce.. etc.

I felt weird having my first 2 spoonfuls and stopped because I felt my adrenaline going and got nervous thinking it would come back up!

So anyway.. I’m waiting 30 minutes before I can drink my Water. And then wait another 30 minutes to dig into my 2oz cup again? Is that how you do it?

Thank you everyone!!!!

I ate only one 2 oz item slowly all in one sitting. Then waited to drink 30 min later. I ate 2 oz again 3-4 hours later.

I am on day 4 of puree. The first 3 days i seriously felt like i was over stuffing myself. Today i cut it back to 2 2ounce meals and broke them both into 2.. so 4 times.. but i did it during the day only and am finished.. Only i also added GENEPRO (30g) of Protein to the food.. half scoop in each.. I also had my Protein Shake at some point. I may move the shake to lunch, have a scrambled egg for Breakfast and leave the second course of protein for dinner. I had to try something different because eating 2 ounces at once.. was way too much and i was getting the pressure in the chest.

You need to start establishing good eating patterns that you will take forward into the future. 3 meals a day plus possibly 2 or 3 PLANNED Snacks. Eating constantly will set you up for failure

It is going to be different for everyone. If you are an insulin diabetic you eat every 2 -3 hrs other wise my NUT says 3 hrs. As a T1 diabetic I am hoping to do 21/2 to 3 but we will see soon.

      Today I had my first post surgery update. I haven't eaten anything other than the occasional popsicle and my daily protein shakes in 2 weeks. I have lost 30lbs in those 2 weeks. The doctor is happy. I am starting to see changes I have no more swelling in my legs after sitting at my work desk all day. I don't get to eat an egg till next week. I have my total carb and protein counts so when I can start eating I know how much I can have. My surgeon / doctor has been great thru this whole process. He listens and gives good information about what to expect and what I should be doing. He has an amazing team here in Boise. I am glad I went with him to do this life changing process.

      Looking on the bright side: both a loss of 1lb/week and a loss of 4lbs/week are LOSSES.  So long as the trendline is going down, I'm happy.

      Thought I'd give an update.  I'm over half way to my goal, which is awesome, and I've lost over 12 inches in my waist!  The weight isn't coming off as quickly as I had hoped, but I am also not exercising and still not getting even close to the amount of water I should be drinking, so slow weight loss is not all that surprising.  Sometimes I'm just "over it" and try to eat huge portions like I used to, but, thankfully, I feel the restriction of my smaller stomach and can't go crazy.  In general, I'm quite good, just trying to live my life.
      I now have a motivation to start exercising, though... I booked a plane ticket to Germany for the end of September, so this is a good chance to get strong, get hydrated, and reach my weight goal.
