Pureed - how do I know if I am full?

Recommended Posts

I was doing about 1/4 cup during the puree stage as well. I never felt hungry, nor did I feel full. It was just a matter of getting in the Protein I needed at that point.

I was never able to make such tiny portions of food last 30 minutes or more. I made a point of chewing everything thoroughly when I got to solid food, but I still couldn't make my meals last long enough. I'm not advocating faster eating, just sharing my experience.

I also wanted to note that my surgeon and nutritionist said that I did not need to stop drinking 30 minutes before eating, only after. That's what I have done since surgery and it doesn't seem to have been a problem. Again, just my experience.

For me it has always and still is Portion Control. I stuck to my 1/8 cups.... I now do 1/2 cup Protein, 1/8 cup veggie and 1/8 other. I do this for all three meals. I snack on deli meat and cheese during the day.

I bought some silicone ice cube trays with lids planning to make portion controlled meals...each compartment holds 1/3 cup with room for expansion when frozen. Each try has 6 compartments. Does anyone have some good freezable recipes that would work for this? Having surgery 6/1/21 but planning ahead and want to try some recipes beforehand.

      I had surgery on September 27th and I am one of the very blessed ones that have had no pain to speak of besides a couple days of gas pain. I have lost 9 lb since surgery, and I am feeling a little like I should have lost more by now. Is that realistic? Or am I being too fussy?

        Are you on meds for reflux? If not you should be at this point. If you are already on reflux meds get in touch with your surgeon asap as this is not normal. If fact i would be getting in touch with the surgeon either way. I hope your issue is resolved and you feel better soon

      Tomorrow is the big day! Getting sleeved in the morning and possibly spending a dark and stormy night in the hospital after. I'm actually excited about that because rain on wedding days and birthdays is considered a sign of good luck- so wouldn't a commitment of re-birth qualify as well?
      Can't wait to see y'all on the other side!
