Ok guys dumb but serious question… According to my doctor I am supposed to be in purée till the 17th. Why in the world does anything I am supposed to eat make me beyond nauseous. Like I don’t throw it up but all I can do is lay down for the next while. It makes me not want to eat. So the other day I knew I needed something and cheated and ate a hot wing and a half and was absolutely fine with it… does that sound weird to anyone else???

You're not eating too much, are you? Maybe cut in half whatever you're eating and see how that goes?

I'm really just grasping for straws here, but maybe look for patterns? Like amount of fat or carbs, types of food, etc. I know that some people really struggle with certain foods, but tolerate others just fine.

So far anything purée is out. chicken, tuna, potatoes, eggs… nothing! But I can eat a hot wing and deer sausage without getting sick. Leaning towards it being a texture thing.

Could be? Maybe try regular non-pureed tuna and see how it goes?

I will be 3 weeks post op tomorrow. Would it be safe to just eat normal food? ? I know every plan is different and it is against my plan but if others are ok I am willing to try cause I know I need to eat.

As long as you chew well, I don't think it will hurt you. Best to know if it's a texture thing, then you can talk to your team about it.

I think you should call the doctor tomorrow. Have them problem shoot this rather than strangers on the internet. Ive wanted to eat so badly too, I can barely down those shakes anymore. However I’m scared of doing anything “off plan” and sabotaging future success. We are building new habits so ultimately it’s your choice. Give the doctor a call and good luck, you’ve got this!

Not during the day since I'm constantly sipping Water. At night I'm actually woken up in the middle of the night with severe dry mouth. Not sure yet if that's because I'm mouth breathing, or if something else is going on? I do know I'm a lot more congested that I used to be, so that might account for the mouth breathing.

100% same exact thing.

I don't know how many of you are in your third week, but I am concerned about my calories. My doctor has us do 3 meals and 3 Snacks. Shooting for 60 grams of Protein and 64 oz of Water. I have no problem with the protein. I make a lot of Keto Soups and blend them down. I am concerned in the calories. I was hovering around 5-600 calories. Today if I eat everything, I wrote I should end up around 800. I couldn't believe it. I have not had any issues with food until yesterday. I am in my soft food stage and yesterday I had a few of Russel's Sugar Free Chocolate. My TOM started yesterday, and I think I was just craving. That did not sit well at all. So, no more off that. Where are you all at in terms of calories?

I have been cheating a bit on the puréed diet… mostly because the idea of purées repels me. But I have been chewing really really well instead. Tiny bites of chicken from a Soup, a piece of bacon today, little tiny pieces of turkey sausage in scrambled eggs… my stomach seems to do fine except I am still struggling with eating too fast and I think I am eating just a bit too much at one sitting. Is anyone else finding that they aren’t struggling with nausea with food? Even a sort of spicy SW chicken soup isn’t bothering me… just feel overly full sometimes.

I'm a bit confused? Can you help me understand if you're concerned about your calories being too low or too high? My plan does not have any mention of calorie goals at all, at any stage, so I'm not sure what you're shooting for.

      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.
