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!

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.

      Has anyone had problems with the bariatric miltivitamin? I am struggling to get them down. If they don't make me throw up, they make me feel sick to my stomach!! Does anyone do something different when it comes to vitamins?

      What I've learned this last 2 weeks is consistent. That's I've been able to lose a pound here and there. This morning sucked it was 48 degrees but I am working on being consistent and sticking to it. Am perfectly sticking to it? Hell no but I'm working my ass off!

      A bit frustrated with my surgeon's office currently. Feeling like they are leaving everyone in the dark about when surgeries will start again. Told one thing, then told to do another. GRRR! I just want to be scheduled already! 😫🤬

      I'm losing more than weight. Ran labs to prep for my annual exam and since my pre-op labs in September (sleeved 10/13), I've lost:
      39pts off my Total Cholesterol including... 29pts off LDL 33pts off Triglycerides 18pts off fasting glucose & almost normal range A1C is lower on low end of "pre-diabetic" range My surgeon does labs at 6 months, so this is cool info to have in the meantime!
