Week one is past and the clear liquid diet now has become full liquid. No real hunger, just some head hunger every now and then. Especially when a commercial comes on with something really tasty. It doesn't last long, though. I really don't want to eat anything. It's kind of weird. I never thought I could feel this way.
The creamy soups have added some flavour to my diet. Finally! And drinkable yogurts help. Still quite a few weeks to go before solid food but I know my stomach has to heal, so it's all good. It's all a learning process. i have to learn how to eat properly this time.
One of things I have learned is not to drink liquids with my meals. That flushes your food through you system and then you don't know when you have had enough to eat. It actually helps you to overeat. If I'm thirsty, suck on an ice cube, but wait at least 30 minutes to an hour before drinking.
Carbonated drinks are a thing of the past now. They make your stomach swell! So do bread, pasta and rice. Makes sense. They swell in water. No longer necessary!
I am excited about this new phase. And I am learning a lot. I can do this!
