Purred Diet Help And Struggles

5 on December 26, 2019

Hello all, my name is Vianca and I am two weeks in my sleeve post op. Today I would like to know more insight on how people have been handling the purred phase. You’re welcome to leave recipes or tips. Along with this, I am currently feeling stressed, because I find myself eating too fast and already returning to my bad eating habits as before the surgery. Thoughts? Thank you

I’m 4 weeks post op and eating too fast is a struggle for me too. I’m working on taking small bites at a time to help. A few times I got too full because I didn’t realize how full I was getting and it was painful. The smaller bites help me realize I’m full and need to stop.

It looks like some time has passed, how are things going now, ViancaG?  Have you progressed to the last stage of the diet where you start slowly integrating whole foods?  During the purée phase, I did a lot of sleeping to make the time go by faster.  It’s not the best way to cope, but I couldn’t stand the hunger clawing at me.  I made it through, of course.  I’m sure you have too.

Vianca, how are you doing now? 

I recently had my surgery, so I am in the liquid stage of things right now. It is really hard because I’m hungry a lot of the time. I try to find other things to distract myself so I don’t cheat on the diet.

Hey ViancaG , it’s been about a month and I hope you were able to get through that phase of feeling stressed? Remember that all of us go through certain difficult periods post-op and having a strong support system helps.

I had a very hard time with this stage but you will get through it. I do have to say that I liked this stage better than the liquid stage. I’m past those now, thankfully. We all get through the stages and hard times with the surgery. Keep your chin up, and push through.
