Hi All, My first post My husband had Bariatric Surgery (Vertical Gastric Sleeve) last Monday. For the first 2 weeks he is on a full liquid diet. This is his meal plan: Breakfast -Prepared Protein Shake - 30 grams protein, 160 calories -2 oz. (1/4 cup) pureed fruit mixed in the shake Mid Morning -Protein shake Noon Meal -8 oz. beef or chicken broth (home made of course) Afternoon Meal -6 oz. fat free, low sugar, plain yogurt -2 oz. pureed fruit - mixed in yogurt Evening Meal -Protein shake 100 oz. liquids each day. Primarily water. Small sips. No straw. Other liquids - sugar free popsicles or Jello. 1 additional 8 oz. serving of broth. All of his regular medication plus 1 Flintstone's Complete Chewable multiple vitamin twice daily, Chewable Caltrate - 1 three times each day, Colace and Benefiber once daily. 20 minutes on his stationary bike every day. When the weather cools a little we will walk the neighborhood. Week one - 10 lbs. lost No longer taking Metformin for type 2 diabetes No longer taking Lasix for fluid retention Week 3 and 4 he will be on a pureed diet. I have been pureeing meat and vegetables and freezing. I had beef broth in the freezer and made chicken broth last Wednesday. Yesterday I made a very large batch of chicken broth for him to eat and to use for pureeing food. I was a little surprised at how much liquid is needed to get pureed food to the right consistency. That's it for now. I want to check out other threads.
