Second Stage of Post-Op Diet...Weightloss Journey



Recommended Posts

Posted (edited)

Hey all!

Last Tuesday, I reached the beginning of the Phase 2 diet. I've been told that I can eat eggs (boiled, scrambled), non-fat yogurt, non-fat Jello (I'm honestly not sure if that includes the Gelatin and pudding...any suggestions?); cottage cheese; pureed Lentil soup; cooked and canned vegetables and fruit; applesauce; mashed avocado; squash soup; and mashed bananas. I don't eat Squash and Bananas as I've always hated the taste.

Did anyone else find this phase a bit, well, confusing? I legitimately can only eat a few spoonfuls of any of this at any one time. For instance today, I have had about 3 or 4 mini-spoonfuls of yogurt, a cup of mandarin oranges in 100% juice, cottage cheese, and a few pieces of warmed sourdough bread. Yesterday, I attempted to eat scrambled eggs with a cauliflower thin and it did not go well :(

I'm also having a very difficult time keeping up with the correct Fluid intake. Quite frankly, I'm sick of Water. And the sweetness of Crystal Light can become overwhelming after a while.

Next week I can begin eating (or trying to eat) shrimp and crab legs. I'm actually really excited.

Despite these little obstacles, I have lost 29 pounds since my surgery date on 3/23 :D I really was just looking for a place to vent and accept any suggestions/positive feedback if possible.

I have found the lemonade crystal light to be the most tolorable. Regular and pink lemonade aren’t too sweet.
