That's a lot of shakes!  Must be a full time job.  Good for you, I never could get that many down.  Hope it goes well.  One day, I just could not face another Protein shake but was back at it the next day. So glad to be off the restricted diet part now at almost 7 weeks out, BUT with added choice comes a ton of responsibility.  Glad also for the ideas in this post.

It hasn't been bad. Really it was not very smart on my part not to get some broth and some protein bars. Even though they tasted bad to me, it would have broke things up a bit.

I've been white-knuckling through a stall, reading a lot but not contributing much (because most of my "contribution" would just be whinging!).  Time to get back to it!

Breakfast: 1 egg over easy, 1 half of a low-carb high-protein flax & fiber bread round (it was almost, but not quite, entirely unlike toast)

Lunch: 1 serving of hamburger stew (modified - I doubled the ground beef and halved the veggies)

Snack: 1 Premier Protein chocolate shake (so glad I can drink these again - it's so much easier to hit my protein goals with them than without!)

Dinner: 2 slices roast beef, 2 slices american cheese, mustard

Liquids: 64 / Protein: 79 / Net Carbs: 28 / Calories: 703 / Exercise: 2 mile walk with el Doggo

B-Oatmeal with chia and flax seed

L-homemade chicken soup chicken leeks and carrots

D-same as lunch

I usually have eggs for dinner but I am coming down with something I thought the soup would be better.

I have been eating this for about a month waiting to to cleared for my endoscopy .  Not exciting but the only thing that is keeping the GERD down a bit.  This along with 2 Protonix in the am. and Zantac in the afternoon and before bed.

M1: one of the "crack an egg" scrambles I found at a store. Typically some sort of meat, cheese, onion, and a very small amount of potato that you crack an egg into. 120 cals, 9 grams of protein + the stats for your egg. Keeps me full all morning in case I can't grab a snack at work!

M2: 8 cinnamon nut-thins. 

M3: siggi's strawberry skyr yogurt and pomegranate arils

M4: 2.5 ounces leftover turkey chili with a little cheese because cheese makes the world go 'round

M5: I've got chicken breasts, rotel, black beans, and spices roasting in the crockpot right now for some chicken tacos tonight :D 

M6: likely half a protein shake to bump me up to the 70gram mark

The scale is finally moving again, which is twice the motivation to keep hitting protein and water goals.

I've just started the pureed stage as I'm on day 15. How much protein am I aiming for? Also, any websites with good post WLS recipes? Thanks.

Breakfast: smashed up hard boiled egg and avacado - 1 Tbsp. Pureed blueberries - 2 Tbsp

Snack: - Protein shake with Mootopia milk

Lunch - pureed chicken with a bit a curry (2 Tbsp). Butternut squash (1 Tbsp)

Snack: Protein shake with Mootopia milk

Dinner - repeat of lunch

Does this sound okay?

Hi Cindy - Your program probably has targets for you, but most people seem to aim for about 65g per day. If you're doing two shakes per day plus other protein, you're probably doing well. 

Your day looks pretty good to me :) Are you a tracker? It might set your mind at ease to have all of your numbers at hand on My Fitness Pal or other so you can see clearly each day how you're doing, and so you know when you've hit your goal each day. That way -> no guessing! 

theworldaccordingtoeggface.blogspot.com has a ton of good recipes for every stage. Ricotta bake is the best.

Thanks for your response, Jen581791! That was helpful. My Fitness Pal is a great Idea. I've been writing everything down, to help me keep track of all the postop medications, but now that they are dwindling down, I like the idea of MFP. I'll start that today. I get 76g of protein just from the shakes with milk, so maybe that's why the nutritionist hadn't set a protein number for me yet. 

I have saved the ricotta bake recipe, and will try it this weekend. Looks SO good!! Thanks! Great website.

This is a great post! I usually put what I eat into My Fitness Pal for accountability but I need to get back on TT regularly and this is a great way to do it. 

I always start the day with Coffee and eat a later breakfast

B: one egg and two slices bacon

L: Hummus, veggies and beef jerky

Snack: Apple and peanut butter

Dinner tonight is reversed: I am having a protein shake with half of a sliced, frozen banana. 

Worked out on TRX at gym for an hour today.

This sounds WAY better than my normal "chuck a couple chicken breasts into the slow cooker with a few spices" method of making chicken tacos. Mind sharing your specifics so I can replicate?

My plan for the next few days:

Breakfast: Smoothie w/ blueberries, raspberries, banana, spinach, Fairlife milk; smokehouse almonds, 1/2 cup low fat cottage cheese
Lunch: Copycat of Whole Foods Roman tuna salad (olives, artichoke hearts, red bell pepper, tuna) w/ arugula
Dinner: 2 oz. Italian marinated grilled chicken breast, a serving of broccoli cheddar soup (I use the Smitten Kitchen recipe, but use 2% Fairlife instead of the half-and-half; and in my world, the recipe serves 12)
Snacks: 1 oz smoked turkey, 1 laughing cow cheese, 2 T hummus w/ cucumber and grape tomatoes; 1 sugar free York peppermint patty OR sugar free Reese's mini cup

895 calories; 53 carbs total (41 net); 39 g fat; 79 g protein

Sure thing!

I mix up a can of black beans (pinto would be good too), a can of rotel, and either a packet of el paso taco spices or some homemade taco spices. I used to mix in a can of mexi-corn also, but corns a bit tough on my new belly :D Stir that together, and toss 3 or 4 frozen breasts on top, spoon a bit of the mixture on it. Cook on high for 4 hours or on low for 6. Shred them breasts and toss them back in and mix together well. DH likes to use tortilla chips to eat his, I just go at it with a fork and some cheese :D

I am using MFP just to get used to tracking already though.
