Goals of Phase 2 – Pureed Food:
– Begin to incorporate real food into your diet
– Get the required amount of protein per day:
→ Women: >60 grams
→ Men: >75 grams
→ BPD/DS: >90 grams
– Continue taking Bari Life Powder Multivitamins
The pureed food phase is the first step towards introducing real food into your diet (as opposed to a supplemental diet). By focusing on nutritious food with a consistency that the GI tract can tolerate, you are able to get the nutrition you need without risking injury to suture lines and staple lines.
At this point, you are not ready for solid food but now is the time to start the path to whole food. Eventually, you need to learn how to get proper nutrition from whole foods; however, supplementing your meals with protein supplements will help you get enough protein.
