Weight Gain - phase 2/puree



Recommended Posts

Is it normal to gain weight during the puree stage? I've been losing weight nicely but now it seems like I'm gaining. It is hard to get in all the Protein so I'm working on that. But just wanted to know if anyone else has had this experience.

How much are you gaining? It could just be Water weight fluctuations when you weigh.

It's 2-5 lbs. That's what i was thinking, it could be the timing that i weigh plus Water weight. But i just got a little nervous. I'm only a little over 2 weeks post op. So i guess its normal the body has to adjust.

What are you eating if you're having trouble getting Protein in? How much Fluid are you getting in daily also?

My last surgeon appointment for my one month checkup I only lost 4lbs and was pretty upset. Here the nurse practitioner said she told the surgeon to prepare us that the weight just doesn’t come off in weeks 3 and 4 and sometimes people gain a pound or two. She said it will really start in the coming weeks. So I would say concentrate on Protein and fluids and hang on for the ride. Good luck to you.

I'm getting most of my protein in its the extra fluids on top of the Protein I'm having a hard time with. But I'm doing better.

      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.
