The answer is Yes, but you might wanna make sure and wait for someone else to confirm it as I am unsure of myself. Better yet, why don't you e-mail the Medifast guys because they can help better...

Jello was allowed - however I hate jello so didn't eat it. I found to make "clear" liquids taste better I alternated my flavors per 8oz. And with chicken broth I would add the chunky chicken liquid (saved the "goodies" for casseroles and soups later on down the line - just froze them. Did the same with beef broth & chunky beef type soups...

My plan called for 2 weeks of "full liquids" after the first week of clear liquids. That included = Creamed (strained) and pureed soups, puddings, milk, yogurt, soupy mashed potatoes (you can use Butterbuds), grits, cream of wheat, oatmeal..

One thing that was really good was the bean with bacon soup pureed in the blender. I added a little cajun seasoning and loved it..

Good luck!! The first week is the hardest. It gets better...

I had my.

Surgery.

On oct 25, 2010. I was sent home october 28, 2010. the day I was sent home I was able to have protein shakes, popsicles, sf jello and broth. I had my 2 day follow-up on november 5, 2010 and I was bumped up to the next phase, which allowed poultry, most dairy products, fish, ham, legumes... pretty much everything but vegetables, fruits and pasta/bread/carb based foods..

Every doctor has different orders for the diets, don't get too down on yourself, you'll be able to eat better things soon enough! :)..

Jortiz has a booklet, as does....oh, I can't remember her name. Tall and lovely blonde who just had.

Surgery.

Here are some of Jortiz's tips - perhaps she can chime in?? (Do you not have a post-surgery program to follow - most of us got.

Books.

)..

" There are great variances in the bariatric programs. My program is as follows:.

Week 1: (Which commences after being discharged from the hospital) Full Liquids.

I was able to do cream of wheat which I was not fond of pre-op or post-op and was able to use 1% milk to make my shakes..

Week 2 & 3: Blended Medifast diet During this phase I was able to consume lowfat cottage cheese, puddings, pureed fruits/vegetables, however, the skin had to be removed. Mashed potatoes in chicken broth and poultry, no red meats. I lived off soups and greek yogurt. Shelly has a great recipe for broccoli and cheddar soup. Her baked ricotta is also great for this stage, however, I was a little leary b/c Ive had problems w/ high acidic foods in the past (tomatoes)..

Week 4 & 5: Soft Solids.

I was able to introduce toasted breads, steamed veggies, and fruits (as long as they are peeled). My nutrionist doesnt want us to eat anything other than the Arnold's Thins if we are to have bread. One bun it's 100 calories and has 5g of protein. I did try this and it was very filling. I had no appetite for the rest of the day. At this stage I am able to reintroduce any type of meat as tolerated..

Week 6: Solids.

If you'd like I can scan a copy of my booklet for your review. I am not contesting that my program is the best or that it is the only way to go but it gives me a guideline of what to follow and at what stage. I pretty much transition myself to each new stage granted that I didnt have a problem in the previous one. I'll send that to you for your review and comparison..
