I need ideas for the soft food phase.My paper really only gives one suggestion... Can I do baked boneless and skinless chicken thighs with green Beans? That used to be my favorite dinner.

Any other suggestions would be great!

I'll probably continue doing my shake shake in the mornings and my chicken salad for lunch. Cause by then I have already had 45 grams of Protein for the day.

If you are in week 5/6 according to your instructions, it says char grilled chicken & salad, then other meats/vegetables

I would suggest making certain its very tender if you try another method besides the one described.

Check with your Team for clarity

Good Luck 💜

I'm actually 3 months out but due to complications I had to start from the beginning. What method would you use instead of baking? That's the healthiest option lol

Baking seems perfect, maybe pan sauteed would work too. Good Luck 💜

I'm almost six months out and still have trouble with course textures, whether meat or veggies. I did make salmon patties tonight and they were delicious! A lot depends on how the food is cooked. I had some real trouble yesterday with brussel sprouts that were just not cooked tender enough - same with broccoli, cabbage and carrots. However, if they are cooked til very soft, they are fine. It's more about texture at your stage than the actual foods. Yoghurt and cottage cheese are still staples for me.

Moist cooking methods work best for soft foods and although chicken thighs are easier for a lot of people, still many experience issues with chicken. So think instapot and crockpot cooking and things made in a dutch oven like potroasts, slow cooked ground meat chilis, stewed chicken, smothered chicken (made bariatric style).

I did a ton of foil and parchment fish (white fish and salmon and also shrimp, and crab can also work), soft scrambled eggs, soft boiled eggs, soft meats with "meat lube" = premade low cal, low sugar, low carb gravies to put over them.

One of my favorites was doing Thanksgiving green bean casserole made bariatric style with canned chicken in it. So good.

Also made a lot of tuna salad with hb mashed egg and low fat cottage cheese to replace the mayo. I'd add some dijon mustard and Pickle Juice or dill relish. This recipe works great for salmon and chicken salad versions too.

I just kept it very simple, and ate the same things daily/repetitively so that I could just focus on keeping cals low and Protein to meet my macro goal. And time passed quickly.

Canned green Beans, frozen broccoli, frozen cauliflower were my friends in the veg department. Also no sugar added Granny Smith applesauce.

I like costco rotisserie chicken, I just about shred it into tiny pieces then put cold-pressed olive oil on it with Italian seasonings. My cholesterol is amazingly low the good is high. I try to work at least a teaspoon of olive oil into my meal plan each day. I also like it on my cottage cheese, it makes it taste a bit Italian. My doctor said if he had my Cholesterol readings he would be so very happy. Just a thought.

lentils Soup (it's very common in Egypt, where I'm from):

  1. Place 3 cups Water, lentils, Tomato, carrot, onion, garlic, a in a stockpot over medium heat; cook until vegetables and lentils are softened, 20 to 25 minutes. Remove from heat and cool to lukewarm.

    Blend vegetable and lentil mixture until smooth. You can also add a salt and cumin.

      Donated 50 lbs of Jeans and another 30lbs of shirts to Salvation Army. 
      Had to go buy some new clothes that I used to hate, but now kind of like. Trying not to buy too many though as I know in a few months I'll be donating them as well.

      Hello everyone! I just joined the forum today. Had my surgery almost 3 months ago and lost about 44 pounds. Most of the weight was lost within the first month, and my weight loss slowed down almost to a stop. I became very frustrated. Talked with my dietitian several times, and it turns out I haven't been eating enough. Who knew! I was eating around 500 calories a day, and exercising daily. Well, I had to up my intake to 800 to 1,000 calories. I'll see what happens.
