Curious what you all have come up with for your mushy food phase? Looking for ideas so I don't get bored with tuna salad every day. Thanks!

Yes to scrambled eggs made with 2 good splashes of milk. Also milky instant rolled oats, puréed vegetable Soups made on bone broths, purée chicken with gravy or stock, soft boiled eggs mashed with a little mayo or ricotta, yoghurt. I tried tuna & salmon but found the taste awful.

Egg salad, canned chicken salad, seafood salad (made with that fake k-rab that I think is called surimi). All with light mayo. Cooked non-gassy vegetables (green beans!). Not-refried Beans (my recipe below).

NOT-REFRIED BEANS

1 cup (200 g) dry pinto beans (or whatever dry bean you like)

1/3 medium onion, peeled, not necessary to cut up

1 large or 2 small cloves garlic

2 bay leaves or 1 avocado leaf

Salt and (optional) Knorr "suiza" (chicken bouillon powder)

1 jalapeño

1/3 medium onion, peeled and chunked

1 tsp oil

1. Soak the beans in Water to cover by a few inches overnight.

2. Drain the beans, then put them in a pot (I have a clay pot but any heavy pot that retains heat will work) with the 1/3 onion, the garlic, the dry leaves, and salt or suiza. Cover with water by a good 2-3 inches (5-7 cm).

3. Bring to a boil and then reduce to a simmer. Simmer at least 2 hours until the beans are nice and tender.

4. Poke a hole in the jalapeño with a knife (so it won't explode) and fry it and the second onion third in the oil until softened. Cut the top off the fried jalapeño (take out the seeds if you don't like spicy or if seeds aren't allowed).

5. Blend the beans, the jalapeño, the fried onion, and enough of the bean broth to make a purée the consistency that you want. Save the bean broth separately, because the purée will set up overnight and you can thin it with tasty bean broth instead of just water.

The entire recipe is 773 cal, 42.6g Protein, 133.7g carbs, 7.5g fat. It is easily 8 bariatric servings.

Soups with little to no lumps, mashed potatoes with Protein Powder added, refried Beans with Protein powder added, cottage cheese, yogurt with protein powder added, ricotta bake, curried lentils, and occasionally some very tender shredded chicken mixed with a good bit of mild enchilada sauce so its nearly a Soup consistency.

I ate a lot of ricotta bake and retried Beans as well as chicken, egg and tuna salad. Mostly the ricotta bake though.

      Keep going. I guess I'm experiencing a stall almost 6 weeks out. Keep going.

      I hit my stall ALREADY 🤷🏽‍♀️ been at 300 for almost a week. I’m not worried about it though, because I know that my body is healing. I’m not in a rush, I loss 30 pounds since surgery which was 3 weeks ago. I’m just going with the flow and staying positive. 😁

        It's very common. Give your body a chance to "catch up" with its new reality and the weight loss will start again. Hang in there, I know it can be frustrating!

        Same with me. Lost 38 lbs from the week I started clear liquids prior to surgery. Did not lose an ounce for the last 10 days, woke up this morning and decreased 2 lbs. I think it is normal. Dont panic. Your body is in shock and trying to figure out how to readjust.

      First Orangetheory class back after surgery! #347 for me. Determined to take things easy- especially those ab exercises. Looking forward to hitting #350 this week.

        Hi, I have been having a look around the site, I cant find anywhere that you can delete your account yourself, However in the rules it indicates that staff can delete accounts so maybe use the "contact us" tab at the very bottom of the page and ask for assistance there.

      I loss 19 pounds my first 7 days post op 🙌🏽 (Water weight or real weight.. weight is weight to me.. I’ll take it lol) I make sure I keep my water with me 24.7 and I walk every chance I get. I cook dinner for my kids with no problems. I have zero cravings!  By next week I should be in the 200’s. Haven’t been there since high school 🥲
