Anyone having issues with liquid intake (like I have been) I am doing a bit better with suger free Popsicles.... they are cold, and I take very small chunks off, I seem to be getting a little more Fluid in that way .... so if someone needs something els to try I'd definitely recommend trying the popsicles :)

I haven’t tried it but have heard of people freezing their Protein Shakes and eating them the same way if you are having a hard time getting Protein as well. Or you could get the clear Protein Drinks and freeze those. I bet it would be alot like a popsicle

Surprisingly well. No nausea, no throwing up. I’ve been slowly progressing with foods and now on pureed foods but I think it’s causing me to gain a few pounds 😞

Those on pureed foods, any favorite thing to eat? I'm only on day 3 and I'm loving eating food and never want to look at broth ever again. I am eating the ricotta bake and surprisingly my favorite is fat free refried Beans with taco bell sauce on it. I was worried about the hot sauce but so far no issues and all the Fiber is wonderful for my constipation issues that are already starting to disappear. I'm eating about 3 oz per meal but I'm eating about 4 times a day. Think my average calories is about 500. So I think I need to increase that but at the same time I'm afraid to because I don't want to stop losing. I'm having a little more trouble getting my Protein in because I am only having 1 Protein Shake a day and I'm not really eating meat still. So I need to work on trying to add Protein Powder to my food. I'm afraid I won't like the taste though but I won't know until I try. Any tips or tricks for using protein powder in food? I have the Isopure unflavored kind.

@hope4newme honestly I’ve been pureeing the same meals I cook for my family, just adding a touch of Bone Broth. I usually do 2 oz Protein and 1 oz veggies.

I tried that with the Fairlife chocolate and it was rock-hard. No eating that thing!

I froze the premier pumpkin spice in ice cube trays. It worked okay.

I bought a cookbook called Southern Keto and it has an awesome taco Soup recipe in it. I am leaning towards soft foods though. I made it and then blended it down to pureed. Soooo good. Making it again this week. My family eats it not blended. I am also making a recipe from pinterest right now. Look at soft foods and then blend.

The only way I made it work with the fairlife shakes was a semi freeze, I had to put a timer on so I'd remember to take it out before it got too solid.

I'd totally forget! What I do now is use a Ninja Creami to make "ice cream" out of the fairlife shakes. It takes a while, but it's been really nice to have a "treat".

I'm super jealous. I moved on to "pureed", foods, but it's just Cottage cheese, Ricotta Cheese, and Yogurt only until my 2 week appointment. Only after that am I allowed to move to things like Beans, chicken, tuna, etc. I can't even do the ricotta bake until then (I asked).

Don't worry it is coming. I am on soft foods as of tomorrow. I am in the minority I know, but I didn't like the ricotta bakes much.

      Hey October Surgery friends...how are you doing? I've lost 15 lbs since surgery on 18th.42 lbs overall. Wearing clothes that feel great. Had a bout of cold and stomach flu and still having some nausea off and on after that but getting better, I think. 
      Seems like I fill up and have minor pain quicker when I eat hot foods rather than cold. Anyone else notice this?
      Still sooo glad I did this.

        I had surgery Oct 29. Lost 35#. Plateau now. But seeing what clothes fit now is encouraging.
