Phase 2 clear liquid diet ideas...

Recommended Posts

Just converted from sleeve to bypass 2 days ago and already losing my mind. The first time wasn't as difficult because it was for weight loss and I was pumped, this time is for GERD relief. I HATE sweets. I could go an entire lifetime without sweets but all the Protein Drinks are sweet. To combat that does anyone have any suggestions of some Soups they ate during phase 2? I was thinking strained chicken noodle Soup, strained top ramen, or strained minestrone because regular fat free low sodium broth made me vomit. My doctor just said Clear Liquids but did not specify or give me ideas. Tyia

What about Bone Broth? There are curry and chipotle and other flavors.

The others have good suggestions but I would add clear Protein Drink (they aren’t as sweet and can be watered down). Also, I have heard of people that just used ramen seasoning packets and tossed the noodle part.

        I ended up having the surgery on March 1st.

      June 17th is almost here. Picked up everything I need for my after surgery needs. After work will go home and finish packing a light overnight bag to make sure I don't forget anything. And the final countdown begins. Not nervous at all just looking forward to the call for my arrival time.

      I am 19 days post op and I am still struggling to drink the fluids. I am not even able to drink the protein shakes their now nasty to me , I tried the protein bars & it didn’t end well. I have chest pains & I can barely eat. I am weak & my mouth is always dry, and feeling nauseous. Can anyone provide any advise. At least I doing the vitamins. Recently my chest & stomach have a burning sensation.

        I had a very difficult time finding protein shakes that tasted okay and didn't make me sick. I ended up drinking FairLife Core Power protein shakes. I love the chocolate (tastes like chocolate milk to me). I like to blend it with some ice and PB2 powder (or real PB) to give the smoothie consistency. I also found that if I put Panera's Turkey Vegetable soup through the blender, I could eat it. I survived off those two things. My chest pains were from the gas, which was incredibly bad and took so much longer than I expected to resolve. I'd definitely stay away from bars or anything solid until you've conquered liquids. I'd love to tell you the dry mouth will get better soon, but it didn't for me for a very long time (months). The plus to that was that I drank a ton of water. The good new is I suspect you are close to the light at the end of the tunnel on this first and hardest part of the journey. It gets SO much easier after this part.

      I am a week post op and I honestly feel like crap! I keep feeling so nauseous and I can’t get my self to drink a good amount of water. I honestly feel very regretful today. When does it get better?

        By the third week you will feel some relief. Don't push yourself too much with quantity that first week. I just made sure to keep sipping and walking which helped me feel better.

      I honestly haven’t weighed myself since surgery, looking forward to doing it!
