Oh I remember that. I absolutely HATED the liquid stage and was soooo happy to hit pureed stage in week 2! I LIVED off the Ricotta Bake! Though blended tuna and avocado was good too! And soft food stage in week 3 was fantastic! I had a slice of cauliflower pizza on my first day of soft foods lol. Those five days will pass before you know it!

Yep. My diet was 1 week liquid, 1 week puree, 2 week soft food, then general diet (but minus starchy food, processed foods, berries, Beans, lettuce, and nuts. I can have berries, lettuce, and nuts now, and beans in SMALL quantities).

Oh, man! I am supposed to be on liquids for the first two weeks, but their "liquids" include thicker stuff like drinking yogurt and blended Soup. Wonder if I would be okay to have something heavier now, like mashed potatoes. Ugh! Just want a taste of something that isn't those two things right now. >.<

I know it's tough - but stick to your surgeon's program!

Funny enough I'm almost five months out and I STILL can't have anything potato... my nutrition guideline doesn't allow it until at LEAST my sixth month. So I still got at least a month and a week before I could eat mashed potatoes lol

Woohoo! I'm happy for you.

Don't sweat the liquid phase after your surgery. Trust me, you won't be hungry AT ALL. The preop liquid diet is much tougher than the post op one. YOU GOT THIS!

I'm on liquids for two weeks then pureed for two weeks. What is the Ricotta Bake and blended tuna and avocado? They both sound so delicious right now. What other yummies can you suggest?
