I had surgery on April 20, 2022. I'm on phase 3 of pureed/ soft food. I'm wondering if I'm eating too much. I eat four times a day, each meal 1-4oz with high Protein. I also drink 64 Fluid oz of Water.

You should have been given a plan but i had surgery 2 days before you and i eat roughly that. typically 3 small meals a day and i drink a little less Water than you.

Well if you are eating closer to the one ounce per serving all day I worry that you may not be getting enough Protein. You may want to supplement with shakes. If you are closer to the 4 oz I think that is close to where I was. Everyone is different though. If your team gave you a plan I would stick to that.

I was told to eat three meals a day from the start of the 4th week onward, and when I say I was "told", I mean they really hammered it into me. Whenever I talk to the nutritionist at my surgeon's office, it's the first thing she's asking me about and the last thing she's reminding me to do.

You're definitely not eating too much. Were you given a plan to follow?

Seems about right to me. Everyone is a little different, some can eat a little more and some a little less.

Just stop when you are full or feel restriction, I assume you already do since you range between 1 and 4oz.

Thanks for the replies, everyone! I talked with my team, and they said everything was going well. As long I hit my Protein goals and keep track of how much I consume everything is going perfectly well.

      I just had a teaspoon of hummus with a teaspoon of avocado topped with a teaspoon of greek yogurt and it. was. GLORIOUS. I'm four days out and my surgeon gave me the greenlight to work in small amounts of pureed food.

      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 .
