I’ll be moving onto my stage/phase 3 soft food diet soon I noticed a lot of “bariatric recipes” use low fat cream cheese, wanted to know if anyone eats it and doesn’t or does have a problem with it?

I've had lowfat cream cheese, about a tablespoon, and other low fat dairy products with no problem. I had gastric bypass. You could also substitute non fat plain Greek yogurt.

Everybody is different. Some people have issues with poopin' regularly -- especially soon after surgery (which stage 3 still qualifies for). So dairy (other than Greek yogurt and kefir) might present a bit of an issue by making you more constipated. So you'll just have to try it and see. I put Greek yogurt in a coffee filter lined strainer and and suspend it over a bowl in the fridge overnight. Then I flavor it as I prefer--savory or sweet. It takes the place of a soft cream cheese or boursin very well. It's good for your gut and doesn't seem to affect my poops. :D

Do you add something to give it the "tang" of cream cheese?

Nope. It has its own tang depending onehich one you use. I just use the HEB plain Greek Fat Free for ours. I love it on chaffles! I want to make chaffles and Lox with it!

      Currently waiting on a surgery date. Hope to hear soon. I have been fighting for the sleeve surgery for 10 years. I am so ready!

        I haven't pooped in a weed and I'd love a 4 pound poo right now lol

      2. ms.sss

        Lol, yeah, I've been known to drop 3-ish lbs after a good (and long awaited) poop.

        .....or even after a moderate to severe dumping episode. yikes.

      I met with my surgeon on Friday.. I've completed all my tests and all my nutrition meetings as well as meeting the weight loss requirements for my insurance. We are officially submitting to insurance for approval and I was given a surgery date of January 16th 2020 (13 days before my birthday!) Fingers crossed all goes through

      Ok, now im getting old...my body gets me up at my normal 5am dog walk even when it's the weekend, vacation, and most importantly when I'm sick. So now that I have more energy, my body wants to make sure I suffer even longer during the day when I have a cold! Damn being healthy again! (:D)
