Protein Bar in Soft Food Phase?



Recommended Posts

Has anyone tried Atkins Protein meal bars (or any other bar) while in the soft food stage? Obviously chewed to a puree.

I'm having a hard time getting in all my protein and I actually like those bars. Just wondering. Thanks!

Could you just drink a Protein Shake instead? Or a yogurt? Or add Protein Powder to Soup? I don't start soft food till tomorrow, but those are pretty hard! I'm sure you're pretty sick of Protein Drinks and yogurt (I sure am!), but what I think things like tuna and deli meat have more Protein than the Atkins bars. I love the S'mores ones myself!

I wouldn’t recommend Atkins, the ingredients aren’t that great and they’re often very high in fat and sugar alcohols.

I did Built Bars (ones without nuts) during the soft food phase without issue. Quest bars would work as well but they tend to have more sugar alcohols.

If I never have to see another Protein Drink in my life It'll be too soon! Although I may have to.

I'm eating eggs and chicken and cheese, Beans didn't agree with me nor did the deli turkey. I forgot about yogurt. Maybe I'll try that. Thanks!

You can also try fish and ground turkey/chicken/beef. Those are soft, per my plan. Good luck! I can't wait to try some solid food tomorrow!

And... have you tried using Protein Shake in your coffee? (If you drink coffee). I mix 5.5 oz (half a Protein shake) with about 11 oz of iced coffee and it tastes pretty good.

      Hello everyone.. I had my surgery on Sept 30th 2021.. and it has been an horrible experience to me. I can't hold down fluids or soft food. so much mucus is coming up!! and I'm spitting all day. I'm so sad over this journey. is anyone having this same issue? if so, what are you doing about it.

      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!

      Hope everyone's doing ok so far.
      Incidence numbers are on the raise again and hospitals need to treat more COVID patients again. Looking with some kind of dread towards autumn/winter season.

        I am post op day 2 now , you’re there pretty much the whole day. They send you home with a lot of support. Are you local to Birmingham and driving in for the surgery or staying at a hotel in the area?

      Doing to much protein can make you gain weight? Because I gain 3 pound one day and I’m so frustrated 😭🥺 I did a hard work to be in 220 😭😭
