That's a good question. I'm not sure what is the answer to that question. I'll do some Googling and get back to you if I bump into an anything. You should email the people at Medifast as they probably could give you an answer..

My plan allowed clear liquids and clear liquid protein the first two weeks. My mom made me home made chicken broth that was sublime in those early days. SF Popsicles, tea, Isopure clear liquid protein drink, SF jello, SF Gatorade and diluted no sugar added apple & grape juice where what I had. Warm drinks were easier than cold for me - so the broth, tea, & warmed apple juice were my favorites. Don't buy tons of anything... you will be shocked at how little you actually take in and sometimes what tasted great pre-op is nasty post-op...

Well it depends on your plan that your surgeon has designed. I'd say for sure: crystal light, sugar free jello, protein supplements, your vitamins (chewable), broth, sugar free instant carnation, sugar free pudding, low fat cream soups, a strainer, small bowls (I bought the pack of storage containers and used the smallest ones), some cortaid cream for when your incisions itch, some chapstick, a warm blanket (for when you get super duper cold) Hmmmmm, guess it also depends on your plan though.


That helps a little! Good luck :).

Oh and that'll be like six bites or until you feel pressure in the pouch which might be 2 bites or maybe 20 it is just something you'll have to figure out as you go..

This site has a great list and good info..


Spending time googling pays off. If you don't have much of a program then this is the place to come. Good luck!.

More good sites..

Great advice from all the others. Everyone is different but I pretty much did liquids the first week or so after.


I bought all kinds of stuff, like refried beans, eggs,etc. 5 months later, those refried beans are still in the pantry. I got sick on several things so really don't have any good advice except to tell you that your body will let you know what is best for you. Just be sure to stock up on plenty of protein. Wishing you the best of luck!..

Each plan is different..

For instance, the only thing my plan allowed was broth and sugar free jello. And you hardly need any of it, because your meals are so small..

One thing I'd suggest you get is a good water pitcher that can measure ounces... I use it to keep track of how much I'm drinking each day..

I was the same way, Mike. When I got home, it was just me... So, I prepared, much like you are. I had my water pitcher, post op food, some hydrocortizone cream in case my incisions started to itch... I made a list and got everything..

Best wishes!..

I am attaching the.


Guide given to everyone at the.


Center I went to. Make sure you have lots of sugar-free popscicles at home for the first couple weeks and sugar free puddings.. along with protein powder.. that will get you through the first weeks. I was on liquids for two weeks before and after.


.. then work your way up to yogurt and blended soups.. Good Luck! .. this guide book will tell you everything you Dr. didnt.. it's pretty standard stuff...

Cottage cheese and greek yogurt (plain, fat free) - loaded with protein, allowed by my program during my 10 day post-op "clear-liquid" phase. I agree with Lu on soups ... I ate lentil and cream of somethings from the start..

Get some protein powders ... I ordered some samples online from places like bariatric panty and bariatric advantage so I could see what I liked..

Skim milk. Even if you are having problems getting in any other source of protein, you can have some skim milk and get protein in..

The first few weeks fly by ... my first six have just completely disappeared. Follow your program - I've learned from these boards that every program is different, TAKE YOUR VITAMINS, WALK, and love losing weight...

Now they'll tell you you can't but I say the sooner you can eat blended soups the faster you'll get your strength back..

FYI I blended pea, bean and lentil based soups from DAY1..

And never looked back..

Protein, fiber natural B vitamins. They are a prefect Medifast food for a butchered pouch. I promise Micheal you will tolerate them well from day 1. BLENDED!.

Good luck Lu..
