        Liquid Diet Shopping List Hi it’s Steph Wagner, Bariatric Dietitian on Food Coach Me. I often get asked for more liquid and soft diet recipes. I admit, it’s more fun to create dinners for postop living than it is to talk about the liquid and soft phases. I will try my best to support you in these phases if you are a new patient to weight loss surgery. If you are watching this, you are having or interested in having weight-loss surgery and I want to congratulate you on this exciting journey! You will quickly notice, if you haven’t already, that bariatric programs and their guidelines vary tremendously. That being said, I want to share with you my recommended shopping list for the liquid diet but will point out that my guidelines may be different from what you have heard. I will even include the reasons why I don’t support some things that other programs may in a liquid diet. But first let’s focus on what you CAN and SHOULD have during the liquid diet phase. Most programs will have you on a bariatric liquid diet for the first two weeks after the operation. The biggest focus during this time frame is on staying adequately hydrated. Dehydrating is the number one cause of readmission to the hospital for bariatric patients. Do everything in your will to stay on top of hydrating fluids. The goal is to get 96 ounces of fluids every day. The standard guideline for 64 ounces a day is assuming you’re a 140 pound adult. Because we have more the hydrate than the “average” adult, aim for a closer to 96 ounces which is the equivalent of 6 bottles of water. You can count anything that is not caffeinated, not carbonated and under 15 calories for 8 ounces. I call this, the rule of the three C’s. Each program is different in terms of caffeine, regardless, caffeinated beverages cannot count towards hydration. There are SO many things that fit underneath the three C’s. PowerAde Zero, Propel. Crystal Light, Herbal decaf teas, decaf coffee (as long creamer is under 15 calories), SOBE LifeWater Zero, Aquafina Flavor Splash Water, Fruit20 flavored water and the list goes on. Therein lies the bulk of your shopping list for the liquid diet. Load up on a variety of sugar-free, non-carbonated beverages. Tastes changes are common so it’s important to have a big variety in case you like one something one day and you don’t the next. Very common. What I do not recommend which some programs may list on their diet information is fruit juices or milk. I do not recommend fruit juice, not even diluted, as it’s a high concentration of sugar in your fluid. Juice will cause a spike in blood sugar and can even cause GI upset such as diarrhea (this is true for sleeve or bypass patients.) Even the hospital I work in will send patients a diluted juice on their tray. It’s a struggle to always control what comes on the tray, so even for patients in our program we recommend packing Crystal Light and avoiding the juice on the tray. I don’t recommend milk because it is common for postop patients to have a lactose intolerance after surgery. It also contains a good amount of carbs which turns to sugar which leads to the same issues with juices. Instead focus on protein shakes if you need added energy. My personal baraitric guidelines do allow patients to have protein shakes as soon as they discharge from the hospital. As long as the shake has at least 15 grams of protein and less than 5 grams of carbs. I don’t count shakes towards the 96 ounces of water, because it is going to be above 15 calories for 8 ounces. You do want to check with your bariatric surgeon to make sure he or she agrees you can introduce protein shakes in your liquid diet. In terms of a grocery list for protein drinks, there are way more protein shakes options than there used to be. Patients often prefer warm and savory drinks and get very sick of sweet tasting shakes. I will link below to some great websites that sell protein soups like Tomato Bouillon or Chicken Broth that contain 15 grams of protein. Some bariatric programs will sell these items in the clinic. You can also get an unflavored protein powder and add it to a broth of your choice. Maybe you make your own or these new flavored broths they have out there like Chicken Tortilla Soup- it’s just the broth, so no chunks at all. I know this is a lot of information and the video transcript is below along with a grocery list and links to protein shakes. The biggest focus in the liquid diet is to sip fluids all day and to get in protein shakes for energy when you need them. This keeps stress of your stomach pouch and allows you to heal before advancing to the next phase. Thanks for following Food Coach Me, stay tuned for more bariatric living advice and bookmark this page as a resource for your journey.
