Protein puddings can be bought in just about any store or kiosk. It's just a sugarfree, proteinrich alternativ to puddings. Like chockolate, custard, etc. Would think the options are greater in the US than in the most boring food country of them all, which I live in🤣

I've heard about Protein Jello, I don't know more about this. But one can also have sugarfree Jello. I make jello out of sugarfree limonade and Gelatin. It has a little protein. Usually blend a little keso with vanilla for a "vanilla sause" go go with.

Also heard about tasteless proteinpowder to mix in Water etc. Never tried it.

Soups are liquids so as soon as you are of clears, you can have creamed Soups, but pls don't force if your stomach cannot handle it.

Thank you!

Do you continue to use these type of products? I can see incorporating some of these into my work lunches post surgery, for the extra Protein.

I do still buy certain thing’s although not often. Some people do find them handy for work lunches. The creamy chicken Pasta is pretty good. I actually had it on purée just cooked very soft since it’s easy to chew to purée. I couldn’t tolerate normal purée foods.

. I like their protein pancakes. I did try some of their protein chips. As I’m supposed to be doing more normal foods. I had half a small bag with two soft boiled eggs. As you advance you can get more creative with your work lunches.

in the early stages try things like chia pudding :)

I bought their protein mashed potato mix and I make that sometimes with a small veggie burger. Ie. Boca turky burger 2.5 oz 70 calories, 11 grams protein. I liked it with dr Praeger’s black bean chipotle pollock burger, 2.5 oz 90 calories 10 grams protein but my store stopped selling them. It took me longer than most to eat normal foods. I’m still eating fairly soft foods.

my head is tired. But I’m sure there’s lots of ideas. Some people prepare their own meals fresh. I don’t have energy for it. I do a mix of buying a few things from BariatricPal, I buy things like veggie burgers, veggie sausage, if they come in small portion right calories, Egglands Best eggs, plain Greek yogurt or TwoGood yogurt, I mix PEScience select Protein Powder in yogurt. That helped a lot during purée. As did good culture cottage cheese cups.

I admit I treat myself to a little land o lakes whipped topping (sugar free) on my yogurt. and evening coffee. BariatricPal does have protein coffee with Vitamins and protein hot cocoa with marshmallows that’s pretty decent.

i love using ripple milk unsweetened plain , they also have unsweetened vanilla. It’s plant protein.

sorry for rambling.

@Darktowerdream, Thank you so much for all your helpful suggestions. I feel a little like I'm jumping into the great unknown, and hearing from veterans is the light the dark!

@lisafrommassachusetts take it one step at a time. I didn’t think I would get this far. Especially since it was more challenging than most to put it mildly. My food progress is slow but it’s a good thing I’m creature of habit and can get into a routine of eating certain things based on what’s available and how I “plan” it. I’m not the best at it but I work with what I can. As you get to smaller portions of more dense Protein and healthy fats you stay full longer as well. I’ve always been a weird eater. And I’m still learning.

      New found appreciation for you all!
      So Im back in the US to take care of my aging father and it seems like more than ever that being bigger is the norm everywhere here. I cant say that Ive been the best, healthiest me at the moment, but I think you all Americans are doing GREAT to even be working towards the goal of getting healthier in face of all this temptation (even if you are a "slow loser"). So give all yourselves a pat on the back!

        Hello congratulations on your new journey I am 5 days post op and still trying to get the hang of things. I’m supposed to return back to work in a few days but still sore as well. Do you have any advice for me being 5 days post opt?

      Hello,  I am brand new on here. 
      The doctor qualified me yesterday for the surgery, so now I have to take 12 weeks of education classes and then he said they will schedule the surgery 4-6 weeks after I complete the classes. 
      I am excited to start this new journey.

      Am at the half-way mark of the six month pre-op program.  So excited!  Got clearance from psychologist this morning, so I scheduled my surgery consult for early March.  It is becoming more real now.  Have lost 18 pounds so far, since I began this journey on 12/18/19.
