I have a fruit smoothie almost every morning. Handful of spinach, frozen tropical fruit, almond milk, half a banana or avocado and a scoop of GENEPRO. It's the only way I can get Liquid Protein in. I follow dr v. Recipe

Hey everyone, I'm brand new to the forum and this is my first reply to a thread. I had VSG surgery January 27th, so I'm almost 3 weeks out. Physically I feel fine, but I'd be lying if I said I wasn't missing food a lot!

I moved to pureed diet last Monday after 4 weeks all liquid and that first egg I ate was the best thing ever. Today I tried an egg with a runny yolk and thankfully it went down smoothly.

I did throw up for the first time last week when I ate a small piece of salmon, I think I ate it too fast, so I've definitely been a bit gun shy. Sounds like you guys are really brave with your diets, I'm scared to try all these new foods.

I also think I've hit my stall early, I only lost 2lbs last week which was really discouraging. But for now I'm focused on getting in my fluids and Protein Shake (premier protein), and getting food in around that, but between fluids and all the damn supplements I find I'm not hungry all too often.

I'm following now, can't wait to see how everyone is doing!

Same day surgery but I had RNY! I'm on soft foods now and life is so good EXCEPT I am having a much harder time hydrating when I eat real food since we can't eat after. I was really tired and lethargic today and decided to just go full liquids to get my energy back up and it worked wonders !

I only threw up once and it was deli turkey that I ate way too fast so I feel ya there! I do have some of what I call "food sweats" if I eat too fast or too rich (had a bisque the other day woowweee) but that passes after 10-15 minutes and then I'm fine and it helps me learn a lesson.

So far my best friends are: refried Beans with cheese and sour cream, a small spoonful of Peanut Butter (great way to get calories and Protein up) and banana, blended veggie Soups, and my morning green smoothie. None of that has bothered me at all!

Hello surgery friend! Thanks for the advice, unfortunately i hate most Beans which is going to be an issue for me, and I'm afraid to try Peanut Butter since it's a favorite food of mine, I think I'd have issues with limiting it.

Tonight I made some browned ground turkey in a Tomato sauce, and it's going down really nicely and is actually really yummy. I do want to try the blended veggie Soup and I'm dying for some hummus so I'm hoping that agrees with me.

The day after I threw up I went to full liquids also, I had missed my hydration goal two days in a row at that point. Now I'm making Water my goal instead of food, I'm seriously nervous about getting dehydrated.

I made salted caramel Protein mini-cheesecakes yesterday. It was delicious. Texture was more cake like than cheesecake, but that was OK. My stomach handled it fine, but I could only eat about 2/3 of it. I used 4 oz ramekin and the recipe makes 4. 205 calories, 13 g fat, 6 g carbohydrate, 15 g protein.

Welcome. I had VSG surgery on Jan. 27th too! I just started purees Friday and so far, so good. I've had scrambled egg, refried Beans with mashed avocado, broccoli cheese Soup, and pureed sweet potato with Protein Powder. For the last two days I've had a green smoothie with Protein powder and I really think that's helped my energy.

I've lost 19 pounds so far, but I know the stall is coming....I think everyone experiences it around weeks 3-5.

Welcome!! I’m an RNY 1/27 twin as well!! I’m super lucky as I don’t even feel like I have had surgery- until I eat that is! I eat 2-3 ounces and I’m like YEP. Somethings different. or if I forget and gulp and big swallow of water- that’s the worst. That’s actually the only things that’s come back up so far... PTL.

So far our January group has been super active. You’ve come to the right place!!

I've lost about 13lbs since surgery, but I'm hoping I just hit my stall early and my body will pick up soon. Sweet potato with Protein Powder sounds like such a good idea!

      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!

      I am now 10 days post op and I am down 16lbs. I had an allergic reaction to the glue my doctor used so I am still sore and trying to keep moving to not get stiff.

        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.
