I'm 5 weeks out from surgery. My NUT just told me to increase my calories to minimum of 800 per day as I've been plateaued. She is suggesting 4 meals per day at approx 3 ounces each. Today my plate looks like this:

B: 1% cottage cheese with cinnamon with a small piece of fresh pear.

Mid morn: Hard boiled egg with lf mayo and mustard (basically a devilled egg) :)

L: Home made turkey chili with Beans and turkey Jerky

Mid aft: Premier Protein shake

Dinner: Boneless/Skinless chicken thighs and steamed green beans

87 grams protein/74 grams carbs/39 grams fat

Wow! I'm impressed, and a little envious of your delicious food! I'm 3 weeks out today from RNY gastric bypass and just started "advanced purees". So far today Ive had 2 Protein Shakes. And one hard boiled egg mashed up with light mayo. For dinner I plan to have 2 oz ricotta with one tbsp marinara sauce. I start soft foods in one week, and regular foods in 3 weeks.

Sounds like you have a good plan!! You will get to the softs and eventually all foods. It's kind of scary transitioning but once you do it it becomes pretty easy to plan your meals!

I’m 9 weeks out. I try to keep my calories in the 600-700 range but have gone in the 800s a couple of times a week. No problems with any foods, getting Protein or getting fluids in.

Typical menu for me would be a scrambled egg with tsp of butter for Breakfast or protein coffee. lunch is usually baby spinach, spring mix with 1 1/2 oz chicken breast strips topped with T sour cream and salsa. dinner has lately been 1/3-1/2 c homemade chili Beans or 2oz meat with broccoli or Brussels sprouts. At night I usually want a snack so I’ve had sf Greek yogurt, sf Jello with a dollop of yogurt on top or some cheese and smokehouse almonds, but I can get carried away with the almonds so have pretty much cut them out. Often I’ll add a Premier Protein somewhere, but when I do my calories are closer to the 800 range. I am still having to resist the urge to graze, especially at night. I’m going to try doing the premier protein around 9pm to see if that will help with the grazing/snacking urge because it seems if I eat a snack it just starts up my “fat brain” and even though I’ve not had anything “bad” I can still slow weight loss with grazing on allowed foods.

lunch : Yellowfin tuna - 2 ounces and 1 ounce sauteed mixed veggies (leftover from our anniversary dinner last night)
