as a nurse this is exactly what I have seen most people eat after ariactric bypass...they never get past the second stage of their diet...the reason is usually nausea or diarrhhea. it is very difficult to get to the solid food stage of gastric bypass diet.
here is something good that I found...
"About 55 percent of surgeons instruct their patients to follow the pureed phase with a soft diet for 14 days, says Aills. The others allow soft foods during the third stage and regular foods in the fourth stage. If your surgeon orders a soft diet, appropriate foods include ground or chopped meats, canned fruits and vegetables, soft fresh fruits and grains. By the eighth week after surgery, most patients may eat a low sugar, low fat, high protein diet of regular foods. Foods that you may not digest well include nuts, popcorn, doughy bread, and tough, string meats and vegetables.

the hardest thing is trying to understand your Mommas diet...shoot, she cant understand it! all she knows is the bars, liquids and crackers are all she can tolerate
the best thing you can do is get her some carnation instant breakfast and whole/sweet milk! even if all she does is sip it and only gets in a few ounces a ay wouldnt that be great? just a tablespoon of powder and a splash of milk, stir it up and let her sip it...start with vanilla (easiest to digest) and good luck! and you can tie the bag off and keep right on using it day after day...absolutely do not give her a big glass right off :) you wouldnt I know. Good luck and tell your Mom Keep At It and Congratulations!
