Hi I’m 3 weeks out and at the soft food stage , however I’m having a major craving of poke i love poke . So far everything soft that I’ve eaten has been going great and I’m able to keep everything down ! I wanted to know if poke would be acceptable as a soft food? I was thinking if i were to eat it to get tuna which is soft and and som avocado and some soft veggies on the side . Would this be acceptable? If not i can wait a little longer

Fish and a bit of avocado are probably fine, but be careful of sauces, as they can be high in fat and/or sugar, which can cause dumping. I would avoid any raw veggies for the most part, as they are generally not soft enough. Make sure you chew raw fish really well and stop at the first sign of fullness. Mmmm, poke 😋

Sushi grade tuna used in poke, ripe avocado and cooked veggies are all considered soft foods for the purposes of a soft food diet. For the purposes of a post-op Bariatric diet, however, there may be other things to consider.

Just from a calorie perspective, any added oils/sugar to the fish or veggies and the avocado itself is high in calories. If you have the requisite rice, it is nutritionally inferior to other choices in relation to the volume it would take up in your tum, plus it's pretty carby (if you care about that).

Sooooo...short answer is yes, the food items you mentioned are soft foods and are generally allowed for a soft food diet.

P.S. i love me some poke too, lol
