Daily Food DIary Week 1-3 Post VGS surgery

Recommended Posts

Hello all. I thought it would be helpful for us to share food diaries to other members for some possible insights and opportunities to try different approaches.

I am day 2 week 2. Currently having:

Bfast: 100ml lactose free milk, 1/2 banana, 1Tbs high Protein low sugar vanilla yoghurt, blended with crushed ice.

Morning tea: Usually takes all morning for me to drink a 50/50 mix of apple juice and Water, no sugar added.

Lunch: 125ml thinly pureed pumpkin Soup. Soup is home made, simply pumpkin and water, 1/2 tsp chicken stock and some garlic powder. All pureed.

Afternoon tea: sugar free iceblock - lemonade

Dinner: Last night I tried 1/2 cup of pureed chicken thick, stock and zucchini. YUCK! I reverted back to pumpkin soup. Ideas here would be appreciated.

Snacks: coffee with small amount of Zymil (lactose free milk), lots of water, sugar free Powerade, Avalanche sugar free latte, sugar free jelly (jelly for the USA peeps here).

I know I'm not getting my calories in, but right now this fills me up. Any ideas to increase? I have bought milk powder to add a tsp in each Breakfast smoothie, and ordered some tasteless Protein Powder online today as well. Once that comes, I'll easily meet my protein requirements and already meet liquids.

Yes, I know everyone is different, but I'm keen to hear what you all are consuming to give me some inspiration!

Are you still on liquids or are you allowed to have purees now? Purees give you a lot of options, especially once you get the unflavored Protein Powder. My favorite purees included:

  • Unsweetened applesauce with cinnamon roll Protein powder
  • Triple zero yogurt with chocolate, vanilla, or birthday cake protein powder
  • sugar-free pudding with chocolate protein powder
  • Protein oatmeal with cinnamon roll protein powder
  • pureed refried Beans with unflavored protein powder, topped with enchilada sauce and Laughing Cow cheese
  • Pureed black bean Soup with unflavored protein powder

I also ate a lot of sugar-free popsicles, fudgsicles, and Jello in the liquid and pureed stages.

Ooooh yum! I wish we had the same options here in Australia, I love the thought of applesauce with cinnamon roll Protein powder!

I am on day 2 of week 2 so a little more than just clear liquid, but a little less than puree. Does that make sense. I am starting to experiment with a little thicker liquids and it's sitting very gently.

I'm going to see if I can go online and get some of the deliciousness you have described. It just creates variety, and I'm trying to up my protein intake too.

I love jelly/jello, though I've never really liked it before.

Thank you for your suggestions, I appreciate it.

I did 3 oz refried Beans with unflavored Protein Powder, mix it in after heating up the beans. You can also add some cheese to the beans. I used a Tbsp of queso dip for cheesy refried beans.

Today I'm going to hit my Protein minimum of 60g!!! Finally.... though I am having a tasteless protein supplement in my meals. I've attached a photo of the brand I buy. It honestly has no taste, smell or texture at all, so can be added to absolutely anything. Screenshot_20210114-064256_MyFitnessPal.jpg IMG_0341.jpg
