Do I count my Protein Shakes and watery Soups as part of my daily liquid, I am supposed to have 60/60 but not sure how to count it.

I know during my full liquid phase 32 oz were to come from stuff like Water, shakes, Propel, broth, Gatorade Zero, etc. and the other 32 oz from stuff like blended bean Soups, cream soups, milk, yogurt, sugar free pudding, etc.

Do you have any paperwork/a binder with that info for reference that the doc or dietician gave you?

Each doctor's office is different, but Protein Shakes and other pure liquids, like broth or milk (on its own), count towards my liquid goal for the day. So a Protein Shake counts towards both my Protein and liquid goals for the day, which does make meeting them a lot easier right out of surgery. If you have questions about your specific office's plan though, the best thing to do would be to give them a call to clarify.

most clinics do seem to let you count those toward your Fluid intake, but not all. I'm not sure why some of them don't..

      Work is still stressful and I'm on sick leave for this week because of acute laryngitis (corona tested negative twice). 😷
      I'm surprised that I still get reactions for posts sometimes, even though some of them are quite old now.
      Anyway, hoping people are ok!

      How are you guys how are you all a little bit about me my name is Cici I had my bariatric sleeve on July 27, 2021 and six days postop currently, I have been dealing with a bit of anxiety a little depression and it’s something that no one really talks about.
      I would love followers and to follow more people throughout this journey because I’m pretty much alone I have a freak out at least once every two hours I know I did the right thing but sometimes I feel like I didn’t I also know this too shall pass and by this time next year it won’t be tears of sadness I’ll be having tears of joy so please follow me on my journey and I will do the same😍
      I would love to share some of the things that I have discovered after surgery that no one talks about
