Phase II Diet – Pureed Foods 1. For approximately two more weeks, your new pouch will be swollen because of the surgery. You will need to eat a pureed diet with a consistency of small curd cottage cheese, baby food or applesauce. “Mashing” certain foods or “chewing very well” does not produce the correct consistency; your food must be pureed. This diet will allow the swelling to subside and will minimize the chances of food particles lodging in your stomach opening. Note: Many patients choose not to puree their food but instead eat foods that are already a pureed consistency or considered acceptable by The Surgical Treatment for Obesity staff: Plain yogurt, drinkable yogurt, small curd cottage cheese, melted cheese, refried beans, plain quick/instant oatmeal, cream of wheat, grits, farina, plain scrambled egg, liver sausage, hummus, sugar-free pudding, stage I baby foods Tip: To save time and to avoid wasting food, many people puree food and then pour it into ice cube trays, let it freeze, and then place it into plastic bags. When it is time to eat, simply microwave a few cubes and you have a quick meal. 2. Each meal should contain no more than 2 oz. (1/4 cup) of food. 3. Eat only three meals daily. Liquids must be consumed between meals only. Drinking while eating may cause the food you have consumed to move through the pouch more quickly, and may lead to overeating. Always wait at least 60 minutes after you have finished eating to begin drinking.

This Meal Planning Guide is based on the Exchange System, which groups foods into categories such as starches, fruits, vegetables, milk, meats and meat substitutes, and fats. One serving in a group is called an “exchange.” An exchange has about the same amount of carbohydrates, protein, fat, and calories as a serving of every other food in that same group. So, for example, you could swap one small apple for 3/4 cup of blueberries for one fruit serving. Sometimes nutrient figures may seem to vary a bit from list to list due to rounding-off, different serving sizes, or different methods of preparation. But if you eat the specified number of servings of each group, you can be comfortable that you’ll have a diet rich in nutrients and low in fat and calories. At first it appears a bit tedious measuring out an ounce of this and a cup of that, and with some foods it can be hard to measure or estimate an exact serving size.
