Soft and blended food (3rd Phase)If you had weight loss surgery and you just passed without any problem or discomfort the 1st phase (Clear liquids) and 2nd phase (Liquids), you may be ready to incorporate pureed, soft and blended food into your daily diet. The soft foods phase is followed 20 days post surgery. 

The soft food stage must be initiated with “baby food texture” choices; foods that can be easily crushed with a fork or mixed to a ‘slurry’ with almond milk, coconut milk, soy milk or water (Avoid the daily consumption of dairy products).

Deciding to have surgery in a hospital over a clinic is a no brainer!

A clinic is a private health/surgery center started by a practicing physician; a hospital can be a private or a government building where patients are admitted for treatment or any medical emergency. A clinic is usually run for about 3-8 hours when the doctor visits and examines the patient, prescribes medicines, gives the directions as to how to use the medication and then leave. A hospital is a 24/7 health center with several specialists, doctors and professional nurses attending upon the patient's. There will be separate rooms meant for patients that are admitted in a hospital. On the other hand, a clinic does not have several rooms meant for patient’s stay or recovery. A clinic normally does not have beds meant for patients. A hospital has plenty beds meant for patients; it’s also equipped with special beds for patients with high BMI. Last but not least…  if a patient develops a serious complication, the doctor at the clinic needs to quickly transfer him to a nearby hospital.
