So I have one week left of the full liquid diet and I am doing alright with it sometimes feel full and sometimes feel not full. I had tomato soup which did not agree with me and was very nauseous and could not eat half the day! Does anyone have any suggestions on what I could have to up my protein? I have shakes but was told to add in other stuff by the discharge nurse!
I would stay away from the tomatoe soups. Very acidic and hard on your pouch.
It is very early. I focused on Costco Premiere shakes. I ate baby Milupa Oatmeal cereal very liquidy, Greek yogurt....
At this stage getting all your water & liquid protein is important.... Integrating more protein will come with time as you progress through the stages...
Hope this helps!

IN THE END WE ONLY REGRET CHANCES WE DIDN'T TAKE.
Thank you that is very helpful!! I am drinking the Costco shakes and having cream of wheat with protein powder and Greek yogurt..on the list it says apple sauce and cottage cheese..did u do these?
I enjoyed yogurt....cream soups strained.... broccoli...cream of chicken... I was also okay with cream of mushroom...again all strained. I ate oatmeal instead of cream of wheat and enjoyed it more. I added unflavored protein to anything I could. Apple sauce was also okay but I rather have jello.
Thank u so much that is very helpful!! I was ok with cream of broccoli today had a 1/4 cup and was not full cause I didn't add protein powder in it!! Lol
thank you again!
I make mine with milk always....And you may be able to tolerate a half of cup.
Ya I do as well! Here I thought I was always hungry and must of stretched my pouch but really I wasn't eating enough protein to even fill me..I felt nauseous and dizzy cause I was hungry just had cream of wheat with protein and feel much better!!! Thank u for all ur help!
i add protein powder to my applesauce
thanks for mentioning cream of broccoli, I had forgotten about that soup and I love it, so I will be getting some soon.
