Any changes to your diet phase you should definitely get guidance from your doctor/weight loss team. The phases are there to help your new stomach adjust slowly and to minimize the risk of potential complications. Having difficulties in any diet phase can be stressful to deal with. You're only a couple of weeks out from surgery. I felt lethargic and weak 2 weeks out from my surgery too and that was without having issues with liquids. Your body is still healing and it takes time. Please make sure you speak to your doctor before making any changes to your diet phase!

There are all sorts of Protein drinks that can help you continue following plan. Every time someone says protein drinks are hard the good folks here pull out options I never would have contemplated. Let them work their magic on you.

[ETA: I misread 'skip the puree' as 'skip to the puree' stage. You have even more varieties on the puree stage. You can puree any protein you like (along with the seasonings/sauces) and you can make it as thin or thick as you like. Folks here are brilliant at all of this, let them help]

Do not go off plan. Talk to your Doc and if the plan needs changing, it's something you do together. Then stick with what you decide.

Losing weight without surgery was hard. So hard we all failed at doing it.

WLS is also hard. It's just hard differently.

Both do share one feature, it can be easier to quit. Don't quit.

Here you've encountered an issue but you're not asking us how to solve your protein problem. You're asking how to abandon your plan. Give it a chance. The folks here will give you protein ideas that are amazing. You have the best minds on your side to help you solve your problem. Give them a chance.

Our biggest challenge in this whole exercise is to get our thinking right.

Good luck,

Tek

You might actually be able to. Talk with your surgeon. I started puree but was switched to soft foods really early. Was able to tolerate egg over easy better than the shakes.
