Phase 1b: Full Liquids

Full liquids are fluids & foods that turn back into a liquid when at room temperature, e.g. ice cream (unless thickened with starches, e.g. puddings). This is also where daily Protein goals must be consistently met. Follow the protein & fluid goals set by your Bariatric program. To aid with fluid planning,  we recommend 4+ ounces of liquids an hour to get to >64 ounces daily. 

Choose sugar free options (less than 10 grams Sugar per serving) to avoid Dumping Syndrome!

Caffeine pulls fluids & can cause dehydration,

Alcohol can cause ulcers, &

Carbonation can stretch the stomach causing damage!

  • Strained Cream Soups (tomato, cream of mushroom, cream of whatever, strain all solids out, liquid only!)
