    What can I do to help my mom get on a heathy diet. It as been a year sence she had the gastric bypas

    My mom had this gastric bypass just over a year ago. She got it done in OK. She is not on regular food all she eats is crackers, protine bars, and coffee and water. Well sometimes she gets a little fruit in there but not much. I am trying to help her get on a heathy diet but she dont like to listen to know one. Any advice would help alot. She is doing this the wrong way. HELP PLEASE!!

    Encourage her to for her health and your love for her and go on it with her. Make a day together figuring it all out and stress how much it will improve things.

    It sounds like your mom is a bit stubborn. It may prove hard to convince her to change her diet. Maybe you could ask her why she is so reluctant to give up her cracker and protein bars diet. That might help you understand where she is coming from and she might feel listened to instead of lectured.

    Understanding why she is eating the way she is now may give you the argument you need to convince her that her current diet is unhealthy.

    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  smile  you wouldnt I know. Good luck and tell your Mom Keep At It and Congratulations!
