Hey everyone!

I’m on day two of puree’s I’ve been keeping my
Portion sizes under 3oz,trying to take at least 20 minutes to get the food down while taking less than half small spoon of bites. However within 5 minutes of finishing I have absolutely rock gut. I feel a whole new type of nauseous and honestly feel the need to lay/sit down and clutch a pillow. I’m wondering if there is something I’m doing wrong? I’m following the portion size menu my surgeon gave to me or is this just a whole other learning curve.

You are likely also eating too much portion. At 3 days, I was still on full liquids. I was on 2-4oz of pure liquids in an hour.

When I started purees I was on 1-2oz max per meal by volume.

20190913_125951.thumb.jpg.ce92eacbc353aa4cae065a4cf347661c.jpgI started purees today. Couldn't eat but a few bits of ground/pureed chicken (10 grams Protein per 2oz), egg & broccoli this morning. I even divided the 2oz to .05oz. For lunch I decided to open one of my many infusion tuna (2.8oz -22 grams protein) containers that I primarily got for my lunch at work starting next week. Put a little greek yogurt in it - tuna already seasoned with lemon/thyme. As I was making it I was feeling (I'm not even hungry) but I put a little tuna & a little ground chicken measure from Breakfast in a plate. My nutritionist wants me to try to eat 2oz meals for breakfast, lunch & dinner. I have tons left! I will try to eat a little every 2 hours - 30 minutes after liquids. My before/after plate & left overs to try to comsume by end of day. One Protein Shake or fairlife milk will get me to 60 grams of protein for the day. P.S.: It was very flavorful & smooth ; )

Went back and read my notes again. It says to make sure I'm eating 3 to 5 oz of Protein and drink at least 1.5 L (roughly 50 oz) per day. Slow baby steps for me but loving where I currently am : )

You know that's not puree right? That's WAY too much texture for puree. That is more like smashable soft foods. That could be part of why you are having issues. Puree is VERY smooth and baby food texture and sorta kinda runny-ish...think of VERY thin pate.

Yes, I put in blender with a little broth but I can't eat really soupy, runny food unless it's Soup. I want the texture of eggs but I respect your advice. Probably why I cant eat much but it's smooth enough for me.

        Hello Joset, why haven't you been given a diet plan? Did you have your surgery in the UK? Every surgeon has a different diet, and no two people are on the same one. Weird I know. Contact your team if you can

        Mine was two weeks clear liquids

        Two weeks on soups, milk shakes and broths all with out lumps

        two weeks on pureed foods { I couldn't stomach this step }

        two weeks on soft foods like Protein yogurt, stewed mince and veg, soft scrambled eggs. Pate on hard crackers

        Then onto any food I fancied. If you struggle on any step or with any foods go back a step for a few days. Eggs, salmon and chicken are hard for beginners.

        Sorry I missed your original post, hope you are still on here.
