You can only eat 1/4 to 1/2 cup at a time for a while.

Yes - liquids usually flow right through you with little restriction, though some people will have notable inflammation in their stomach after surgery and will be much more restricted (hence the usual instruction to sip, sip, sip our liquids until you see how things flow in you. I was doing similarly in the hospital with no concern on the doc's part.

As you move into more solid foods your eating volume will be much more restricted, and that is when the usual volume restrictions (whatever your doctor provides, if any,) apply.

Although liquids will move through one thing to consider is. Just because you can, doesn’t mean you should. I was done on 6/4, I measure everything out to 2oz, no matter what, some things I only tolerate 1-1.5 oz of but no matter what I never eat more than 1/4c or 2oz.

I’m going to add on for clarification. I drink as much as I want for liquids but for actual food (I’m on purées) I only do 2oz, every 2-3 hours.

I'm up to about half a cup, but I did 2 oz when I started.

      So my surgery anniversary date is on the 24th of this month, but I had my 1-year follow up early with my surgeon this morning (I have another 1-year followup at the hospital on Monday to get my bloodwork and labs done).
      Anyhoo...my surgeon was very pleased with my results (and so where the office staff apparently, because 3 of the front desk ladies came by my exam room to give me props/high fives/generally gawk at me).
      But get this: he asked if I would be willing to come in for a future photoshoot so that I could be on a poster! And I was all, ummmm....no thanks, LOL.

      Today was a really tough day and I turned to food (and a watered down glass of wine). The interesting part was that I felt REALLY full after eating half my go to cheat snack, tortilla chips with cheese. So the GBP is doing its job!

      The only way I can tell that I'm losing weight is from the scale and my clothes "getting bigger".
