Bone broth or regular, Pre-surgery diet help



Recommended Posts

Hi Everyone,

Any idea if I can have Bone Broth instead of regular broth for my diet? I'm in week 2 today, and just realized they may be different. Does anyone know if EITHER is okay r should I switch to regular broth?

Thanks,
Red

Either is fine.

I prefer Bone Broth -- specifically, chicken Bone broth by Kitchen Basics. I love the taste. It's like roasted chicken.

They have one with Tumeric, but I didn't care for it. The plain chicken is great. The beef is fine, but chicken is my favorite.

I find it more filling/satisfying than regular broth.

I’ve been drinking bone broth! It has great benefits. I made some from the Thanksgiving turkey and some from a chicken. I portioned them out and froze them- it’s good for up to 6 months in the freezer so that helps post op too!

Here is a good article explaining the difference between broth, stock and Bone Broth. It relates to cooking, pretty much says the are close to being the same with the difference being cooking time.

Bone Broth is an excellent choice after surgery as it will help regulate gut flora and heal everything :)

They aren't a good source of Protein, per the information on the packaging. I had one from a coworker, I guess unflavored Protein Powder can be added.

      Ok I had surgery on Jan 27 2020 so I am 3 weeks out and have lost 32 lbs  I wish I had this done sooner. Now just trying to figure out different things to eat so I am not eating the same thing over and over. I did order some stuff today from the Bariatric Store and that stuff should be here in time for my next phase. I have a goal of 50 lbs by the first of June hope that is attainable. Good luck to every one on this journey
