Surgery was 12/16/19 I have been on liquid diet 2 weeks prior to date as well. Protein Shakes and Water been maintaining along with some broth has been holding me up. Lately been craving for some other healthy ideas I have had no troubles as far as holding things down and complications from surgery. So far I am down 31 lbs I started this journey at 408.7 yesterday I checked in at 377.2 so I am staying focused just thought I would reach out to others for some ideas thank you

The liquid stage is the worst. You just want to CHEW something! Once you get to the mushies stage it gets easier. Until then sugar free popsicles are great! And jello--even if you normally hate it it tastes pretty good!

Mushies--refried Beans are great--drizzle a little taco sauce on them. Ricotta cheese with a bit of no sugar added spaghetti sauce. eggs with a little salsa are great. I'm gonna have to stop--I'm making myself hungry!

You are doing great!

I was allowed small curd cottage cheese and ricotta cheese the second week after my surgery.

I tried today. I suppose if nothing feels wrong that means things are ok

I was sleeved 12/16 as well. Sometimes for me it really is just head hunger, I don’t physically feel hungry although my stomach has growled a few times. Smelling food or even cooking for my family and not eating it is killing me lol. I’m on full liquids for another week before I can start purées..I can’t wait. I have bitten and chewed a piece of baked chicken and spit it out (not advising you to do this or saying it’s okay) and it helped me feel a little better, my husband was laughing at me but he just doesn’t understand lol. I can have cream of wheat and that’s been a life saver for my breakfasts, warm with a little bit more tester than broth, maybe try that if it’s allowed for you?

I'm so glad you posted this. I'm a week out (it will be a week tomorrow) and I'm hungry. Might be head hunger, but I feel like I'm hungry. I kind of thought that was not supposed to happen after the sleeve. I have one more week of liquids and boy, it's hard right now.
