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.
