Phase 2: Purée

Puréed Diet is the consistency of apple sauce or thinned out mashed potatoes.  Baby food that you can season with herbs & spices. It's important not to introduce textures too soon following surgery. Additional pressure could cause a leak & be a big problem! Follow the diet recommendations 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 while healing!
