shakes, bone broths, broths, consommés, cream Soups, Protein Water are really your only options. It’s essential to focus on your protein and to consume things that are thin enough not to irritate your poor swollen & healing tummy & digestive system.

Have you tried straining (really well so no little bits of herbs, vegetables, etc. in it) won ton Soup or ramen noodles so you only have the broth? It might help by changing up the flavours you’re sipping. Try blending milk & a little yoghurt though it can be a little thick/dense & therefore difficult to tolerate at this stage & better in purée.

I varied between Protein Shakes and Soups mainly. I made a lentil and carrot Soup with a kick of chili that was delicious and got me through many meals. Reminds me that I must make it again :)

I also just had a low sodium liquid vegetable stock pot/cube a couple of times.

Your program might be different, but mine allowed sugar free pudding. Add a scoop of Protein Powder or Peanut Butter powder -- after it's set -- and/or make it with a milk like fairlife that has added Protein.< br />
During my stage, I went to my local fav Vietnamese restaurant and bought a couple servings of pho broth, which I added a little extra Bone Broth powder to.

I got tired of my Protein Shakes pretty quickly, but I'd use half of one to make a faux smoothie using either sugarfree drink mixes or sugarfree Jello, watered down with extra milk or Water so the sweetness wasn't overpowering.

(premier protein chocolate shake + nsa peanut butter powder (PB&Me) = peanut butter cup shake)

Tomato juice is awesome to awaken your taste buds after so much faux-sweet shakes. Campbells cream of Tomato Soup mixed really well with unflavoured protein powder for me, provided I added it after I finished heating the Soup. (I used Boost unflavoured protein).

Thanks everyone

My program advised campbel cream based Soups a- how did you make the lentil and carrot Soup?

how does boost taste - Isopure unflavored is too thick with an aftertaste

I used this recipe https://www.bbcgoodfood.com/recipes/spiced-carrot-lentil-soup without the bread obviously and didn't bother holding half the spices back for toasting, I just bunged everything into the slow cooker for a few hours. Once cooked I blended it and added the yogurt. Then when I moved on to the soft stage (and going forward now), after the blending I add in a few extra pieces of carrot and leave it for about 30 minutes to soften them so it gave a bit of a bite before adding the yogurt.

I like spice so I used a tad more than a pinch of chili flakes, I probably have that in each portion :) Think I got 9 or 10 servings out of this

      Question for anyone, how did you get your mind right before surgery? Like as far as eating better foods and just doing better in general? I'm having a really hard time with this. Any help is appreciated 🙏❤️

        I had about 6 months between deciding to do surgery and getting scheduled. I came across the book The Pound of Cure by Dr. Matthew Weiner, a bariatric surgeon in Arizona, and started to implement some of the changes he recommended (and lost 13 lbs in the process without ever feeling deprived). The book is very simple, and the focus is on whole, plant based foods, but within reason. It's not an all or nothing approach, or going vegan or something, but focuses on improvement and aiming for getting it right 80-90% of the time. His suggestions are divided into 12 sections that you can tackle over time, perhaps one per month for a year if a person is just trying to improve nutrition and build good habits. They range from things like cutting out artificial sweetener or eating more beans to eating a pound of vegetables per day. I found it really effective pre-surgery and it's an eating style I will be working to get back to as I am further out from surgery and have more capacity. Small changes you can sustain will do the most for building good habits for life.

        That sounds awesome. I'll have to check that out thanks!

      I've hit a stall 9 months out. I'm not worried, though. My fitness levels continue to improve and I have nearly accomplished my pre-surgery goal of learning to scuba dive! One dive left to complete to get my PADI card 🐠
      I was able to go for a 10K/6mile hike in the mountains two days ago just for the fun of it. In the before days, I might have attempted this, but it would have taken me 7 or 8 hours to complete and I would have been exhausted and in pain for the next two days. Taking my time with breaks for snacks and water, I was finished with my wee jaunt in only 4 hours 😎 and really got to enjoy photographing some insects, fungi, and turtles.
      Just for fun last week, I ran two 5Ks in two days, something I would have never done in the past! Next goal is a 10K before the end of this month.

      Hi everyone, I wrote back in May about having no strength. I still get totally exhausted just walking from room to room, it’s so bad I’m using a walker with wheels of all things. I had the gastric sleeve Jan. 24th. I’m doing exactly what the programs says, except protein shakes. I have different meats and protein bars daily, including vitamins daily. I do drink my fluids as well.  I go in for IV hydration 4 days a week and feel ok just til evening.  So far as of Jan 1st I’ve dropped 76 lbs. I just want to enjoy the weight lose. Any suggestions or has anyone else gone thru this??  Doctor says just increase calorie intake, still the same.

      Losing my hair in clumps and still dealing with "stomach" issues from gallbladder removal surgery. On the positive side I'm doing better about meeting protein and water goals and taking my vitamins, so yay? 🤷‍♀️
