How do we feel about drinking with meal when said meal is Soup? I mean it’s already food mixed in liquid that we’re eating ?? I don’t do it but while eating one of my friends asked me WHY I couldn’t drink while eating soup and It left me wondering as well…

Because the liquid from the drink fills up your stomach, and then the nutrients from the food don't get a chance to get in there and stay there and be absorbed because the liquid pushes it through. Something like that.

I would assume the others are on the right track. The Water would just dilute the nutrients from the food and leave less room for the nutritious food.

Ah soup, how i miss eating it the “normal” way.

I’m 3+ years post op and i still have to eat soup in stages: first slurp up all the liquid/broth, then I eat all the solid bits. If I don’t, i’m guaranteed to get super full, super fast and likely barf.

BUT…I’ve read of folks on here who have no issue having soup with liquid and solid at same time. Best way to find out is to try. But go slow if you tend to be a barfer like me!

Good Luck! ❤️

Oh wow I just realized I don’t even eat Soup with solids in it anymore. I am either eating stew or drinking broth!

      Kind of nervous, as expected. One month out from surgery!

      😫 Hi, I’m new to bariatricpal! I am 8 days post op VSG. I am struggling very badly. I’ve been so emotional because I feel like I’m doing wrong. I’m afraid I’ll eat or drink to fast or eat the wrong thing. I’ve been on Pinterest and YouTube constantly for help. I have followed all of my surgeons and dieticians instructions. I just don’t know if my body is getting enough. Today, I am weak, sore, and just exhausted.

        It passes!! Everyone goes though it! It is a short term emotion! I'm almost five years post op! You made the right decision! Don't focus on the change right now. Try to entertain your mind. What your feeling only last about a week. It's related to your body adjusting and you mind adjusting. You got this!!

        I agree with Tara it's hard right now but it gets better do t forget your hormones will be all over the place you may even feel depressed. Be kind to yourself reach out and talk to people how you are feeling .
