For quantity, start SMALL and work your way up. I was told to start with about a tablespoon & a half. Use a tiny bowl and a small spoon, take LITTLE bites. Even that little bit, you should take about a half hour to consume. If you experience any pain, feelings of fullness, or a feeling of "backing up" in your throat, stop eating because your pouch is full. You should not drink for 30 minutes after you eat.
At this point you should still be getting the majority of your protein from shakes. Skim Plus milk is great too.

for breakfast i had a lassie (an indian drink)--2/3c nonfat greek yoghurt (face is the highest), 1/3c nf buttermilk and a touch of fruit flavor and splenda--18g prot and it went down easy. i can't get the prot drinks down so this was almost as high.
lunch--2oz tuna with a tsp of nf miracle whip and a bit of pickle--14g really low cal
dinner will be 2-3oz ground pork asian style--really moist. i sauteed and poured off all the fat. this could be 21g if i get the 3oz in. i can post the recipe, it's great.
if needed i'll eat a lowfat mozz cheese stick or two to get the day to ~63g ( what my nut wants)
