y Guys! Im 2 weeks post op and finally in my soft foods phase (YAY!) but I can barely eat 1 oz before I feel sorta wiped out. Also everything I eat or drink gives me gas. I'm only eating what is on the list - tuna, yogurt, applesauce, Premier Protein drinks, Water. Just looking for some suggestions and advice on how you guys navigated this phase. I really want to just EAT! Lol! I literally cant eat till satisfied and it's getting a tad bit frustrating. Any encouragement is welcome!

I promise it gets better!! Just keep at it, keep walking!

For soft foods, I loved refried Beans with a little cheese and sour cream. You can Google buffalo chicken puree, that's yummy too. Or ricotta bake. I had trouble with creamy Soups because they went through too quickly and I got the sweats and nauseous but I could do pureed veggie Soup or Tomato Soup.< br>
I'm 7 weeks out and eating normal food. It feels like it will never happen but it does! I promise. (Still can't do chicken breast but love me some chicken thighs!).

I'm 6 weeks out from post op and I am still on soft foods, and I am so burnt out and don't know what to eat. I have wasted soooooo much money and food. I cannot eat any tomatoe base anything due to my reflux, eggs sour my tummy as well as avocado

I am so frustrated does anyone have any suggest? Also, what is the process to eating food again. Did you just jump back in, or what was your gradual process to eating regular food again?😔

I'm honestly surprised you're still on soft foods at 6 weeks. I had a progression plan over the six weeks to move me to regular foods and I can eat most anything now (7 weeks) and have been on solid foods since week 4.

I know every surgeon's and nutritionist is different.

I can't do eggs either so I feel ya. I eat a lot of veggies, chicken thighs, fish

Y’all are preaching to the choir! I’m so hungry and not satisfied with eating soft foods! Ugh! It’s so frustrating. Everything I try so far is tolerable. I had hard-boiled eggs today and that is the most full I’ve felt since the first few days after surgery. And I’m having issues with how fast I eat. I eat fast and always have and I’m trying to be more conscious of it. I noticed it today as I was scarring down my eggs. It was only uncomfortable for a moment and I was ready for another egg. Smh.

I had my sleeve surgery on 3/4/20 . My doctor ok’d me on 3/12/20 to move to puréed/ soft food. Happy that I got to move on from just liquids. But I do find it hard to eat slow.. maybe because I’m hungry .. lol..
went to the store today and they were out of sugar free popsicles, and toilet paper. Lol.
So I got the “No Sugar Added Fudgsicle” my question is , Should I not be eating those ? 1 popsicle has 2 grams of sugar.
They tasted so good.. Any thoughts??

I've personally never had an issue with sugar post op. You could try a little and take it slow.

I’ve been eating no sugar added fruit popsicles like crazy and it hasn’t affected me negatively. I would say enjoy!

Thanks luv! I'm going to definitely try the buffalo chicken puree. I've never been a fan of refried beans.

What about avocado with some chili lime (tajin)?

I also loved garlic mashed cauliflower!

I can eat turkey sausage; I either cut it up and cook it with some diced tomatoes and spinach, or open the sausage and cook it like crumbles. I've done that with rice cauliflower, garlic and Cajun spice, and also with diced tomatoes, Italian spices and baked a spaghetti squash. I use either a tsp of fresh grated parmesan cheese, or a tablespoon of low fat shredded cheddar. It's pretty high in Protein.

I have brought a couple of slices of deli turkey with some low fat shredded cheese to work for lunch; just make a little roll up. Chew, chew, chew. 2 slices fills me up nicely. I've had some sugar free apple sauce with that.

I've been making little one egg omelets; I use one egg and 3 tbl of egg beaters (=1 egg white); I fill it with spinach, some Dash, and a little part skim mozzarella or the low fat cheddar. I have new little plates, and it fills it up. I usually can't eat it all.

I bought some pre-made, pre-cooked turkey meatballs; I had to cook them in the tomatoes at first to get them soft enough; tonight I just baked come and had it on a bed of very well cooked broccoli. My husband likes them, so I made him a little Pasta with oil and garlic. He's been a sport with all the mushy vegetables.

I also love fish; I have baked salmon with no fat greek yoghurt and Cajun spices or lemon and garlic. Heat a non-stick pan with a generous coating of cooking spray; cook skin side down for a minute or 2; then place in a baking dish, brush the top of the filets with the seasoned yoghurt; bake at 400 for about 20 minutes. Nice and moist.

I've also made tilapia; thin tilapia cooks in minutes; fry with cooking oil; then make a "sauce" with the no fat greek yoghurt; I did lemon and garlic. Yummy. Nice with cauliflower rice.

Tomorrow I am making some split pea Soup. I'll use that for lunches next week. I am hoping I can "hide" some Protein Powder in the soup to get some protein bang.

Also easy; Rotisserie chicken! I make chicken salad with the left overs; I have been using mayo made with olive oil; half the calories, and I like the taste. And of course good old tuna salad; lots of protein!

I figure if I can get a little variety I am less likely to loose my mind! And less likely to sabotage things.

These suggestions make me want to be more adventurous in the kitchen. Guess I'll have to take my chances at the supermarket again. I went two days ago and it was a nuthouse. All the meats were gone...smh.
