That was how my soft foods stage looked as well. Some people may not tolerate the stem part of the asparagus well (not sure but that may be fibrous) but for my plan veggies were just as tolerated after soft foods. Fish was definitely on soft food though and I realized quickly that I like it alot more post surgery than I did before.

I’m on week three after surgery and stuck eating runny Soups and refried beans! It’s crazy how different the rules are. I can’t wait to eat a plate of food that looks like that. It looks like heaven!

I loved eating refried Beans during my puree phase! Have you tried it with some shredded cheese on top? Also maybe mix in a little taco sauce for taste. This stuff - https://www.target.com/p/ortega-original-thick-smooth-medium-taco-sauce-16-oz/-/A-13388906#lnk=sametab - is awesome

Heck ya I add cheese! I have to restrain myself from adding too much! I will definitely add taco sauce next time. I’ve been eating the ricotta bake almost every night because it’s so damn good.

So I gave the Nuwave a shot tonight, should have taken a picture but I forgot. I took the frozen salmon, put some olive oil on, and Mrs. Dash seasoning, then 25 minutes (from frozen) in the Nuwave, it came out pretty good! I put on some Teriyaki sauce when it was done for flavor and it was good. I think I prefer the pressure cooker though, it comes out more flaky and soft, this was a little tough although I might have put it in for too long. I had a side of corn (3 oz) also with teriyaki sauce, and it was a pretty good dinner!

I’m 3 weeks out also and I can also eat like that with no issues. Like you, fish is on my “soft diet” list and I can take pills, gulp Water and other drinks with no problem. I almost wish I had more restrictions eating.

I was the same way at every stage I could eat more than expected. I just had to measure my food and eat how much I was supposed to but the process still worked.

That’s good to hear! I’m down 20lbs since my week visit to my dr I haven’t weighed myself since but I can tell I have lost weight so that’s good. But like you said I will just have to be extra careful measuring food portions.

I started the SOFT stage last week and it’s not going very well. I did okay with 2 oz. of baked fish, but chicken and eggs didn’t sit well in my stomach. It felt like a rock in my stomach. I didn’t throw up, but I felt so yucky that I’ve decided to stick with Soups for a few days.

      😫 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 .
