    Post Surgery Diet

    Hey guys. I undergoing surgery this wednesday and I'm trying ot figure out a good diet that I can use so I don't lose a lot of weight in the weeks that I cannot lift or eat solid foods.

    I can't eat solid foods for at least 1 wk afterwards. I'm thinking a weightgainer will be my best frienbd during this time period. I like N-Large so I'm definitely going that direction.

    Can anyone recommend a liquid source of healthy fats? Olive oil comes to mind. Any other ideas?

    Other than that cottage cheese/milk/yogurt will be mainstays. All this dairy is gonna make me feel like ****.

    Oh and lastly, I'm looking for a good fiber source so all the protein can move efficiently through my body.

    hmm...I wonder if I'll be able to take a multi...

    Well, what you've got there is actually pretty good.

    In terms of fiber, you will probably have to supplement with it for that 1 week.

    Other than that, it's just gonna be about getting in the right number of cals from those sources.

So it is best to keep an open mind and be agnostic. At first sight that seems an unassailable position, at least in the weak sense of Pascal's wager. But on second thought it seems a cop-out, because the same could be said of Father Christmas and tooth fairies. There may be fairies at the bottom of the garden. There is no evidence for it, but you can't prove that there aren't any, so shouldn't we be agnostic with respect to fairies?"

This is an unmistakable fact; nobody could seriously deny it. Yet people with full knowledge of the arbitrary nature of this heredity, somehow manage to go on believing in their religion, often with such fanaticism that they are prepared to murder people who follow a different one."

    Dairy an regualr over the counter fiber supps can really bloat you; leaving you w/ a horrible feeling.Esp if your surgery will be on in the abdominal/chest area; I know from 1st hand experiance.

    UniFiber by Niche Pharmaceuticals Inc. is a fiber that is ultra fine. It was made to prevent bloating/gas prevent inteferance w/ absorption of any medication.It doesn't gel or clump & can be mixed in w/ soft foods an liquids w/o effecting the taste.

    Hope this helps any.

    Food: Weight gainer, protein powders, home-made MRPs, etc.

    Liquid fats: Olive oil, Flax oil, Peanut butter (sort of solid, hehe), Udo's Choice, etc.

    Fiber: Metamucil or whatever other fiber supplements are out there.

    Just go to a health food store.

    You want to keep Udo's refridgerated.
