Fruit, tuna and beans are healthy. What about other lean pork or beef if chicken isn't an option. How about some fresh veggies in addition to the fruit?

We need more information. Is he obese? How is his cholesteral?

I'd suggest eggs, but if his cholersteral is through the roof, then those are out. Beans are a great suggestion. Lean red meat is also good. Ground turkey is also very healthy (and cheap).

If he lost the weight and is healthy and not obese anymore, have them remove the band, or adjust it so he can eat food.

Sounds like torture though.

there's a really good/easy ground turkey chili recipe in the recipes section. You should try it out.

Guys... please only respond in this thread if you have information specific to gastric bypass surgery. I was very close with someone who went through this exact surgery and it is very tough on them. They are limited because many foods will not digest propery and also cause indigestion (spicey foods are out, a lot of dairy is out, sweets will go against what they are trying to accomplish, etc.)

My advice is to do some research online for articles on this actual surgery and also to check some of the weight loss forums that are out there where the members have gone through similar procedures. There is plenty of information around as this became popular about 5 years ago.

From my personal experience my friend who had the surgery would eat ice pops, protein bars, small protein shakes, fruit, small portions of lean meats, fish, natural peanut butter, etc.

Hope this helps and I wish your Father the best of luck with his recovery.
