Greetings, Having oral surgery on Monday. Will need to eat soft foods for a couple of days. Would be grateful for some suggestions on healthy/low-calorie foods. (Must admit the idea of living on Ben & Jerry's for a few days sounds scrumptious.)Thank You, Dylan Wink

Banana ice cream....
Peel & freeze a banana...put the broken up frozen banana in a food processor & process until it's creamy..if you like plain banana...that's it...if you'd like, add some cocoa powder or even throw in a strawberry.
I added some cinnamon & cayenne for a Mexican flavor...good luck with surgery...and if you have a magic bullet or nutribullet you can throw a lot of fruit and veg in there Smile

If you have a blender at home you can make vegetable soup. Trader Joes has relatively decent packaged soups. Greek yogurt and smothies are also good options. You can buy protein powder and add to smothies or apple sauce. Another trick that I used when I had oral surgery and did not have time for cooking - baby food. You have to add salt, but it Is OK and you can last on it for a few days. It is super easy to eat after the surgery and portable.

You can use shakes for a few days. I have used the Atkins shakes and they are very good tasting. Soups are good though as stated above you may have to puree them. You could puree or blend cottage cheese if it not smooth enough. Then there is yogurt.
Stay strong, stay focused.

I'm reading this while eating some absolutely delightful fresh melon for breakfast. If the melon isn't soft enough on its own you could add it to a fruit smoothie.

Weight loss stalled
Having 200 calories every 2 hours, for eg; like from 8am to 6pm should shake things up abit and hopefully get the ball rolling again.

High carb- Low protein and HUNGRY all the time???
You usually need to eat (at least) every 3 hours on a High carb diet to stop hunger. I find, with high carb dieting grazing is the best system. While with low carb dieting, a set 3 meals a day works ...

Upgraded to 8.0 on I-phone now app not working
Is there a way to reverse sync so my correct food entries from here are on my phone since it won't let me delete an entry in the wrong place?
