Thank you so much for your advice!
So this is the basic notes from my nutritionist;
Every 2-3h try to sip 50-75ml of protein shake or plain, low fat drinkable yogurt (soya also fits!), but rest of the time you should sip only water. You can also use ready made meal replacements with high protein content and maximally less fat and carbs.
Aim for this week is to get at ~ 1l of water per day.
If you feel dizzy, please have some juice diluted with water or small drinkable yogurt with added flavour (=sugar).
You can have a lukewarm tea, but please avoid really hot and cold drinks.
Strict no to all fizzy drinks and chewing gum for ever.
Regularly, every 2,5-3h
100-125ml each meal
~60g of protein daily
Breakfast - 100-125ml of smoothie made from 1tbsp oatmeal + 1/4 banana + 2-3 strawberries + protein powder and/or yogurt + water.
Second breakfast - 100-125ml protein shake.
Lunch - 100-125ml cream soup from lentils or silken tofu + 2-3 kind of vegetables (zucchini, carrot, onion; no salt or spices!!!). Other option is to make vegetable cream soup and add plain protein powder in it.
Afternoon snack - again 100-125ml smoothie
Dinner - again 100-125ml of cream soup
Evening snack - again 100-125ml of protein shake or just plain soya yogurt (+ you can add some more protein powder).
If thicker consistency is difficult to tolerate, please continue for 2-3 days only liquids and then try again with smoothies.
I’m currently taking iron, calcium, vit D, B12 and a multivitamin.
My hope is to have homemade soup 2x, 2x homemade smoothie (all with added protein if required) and 2x Huel shakes and/or hot and savoury blended - if that’s suitable.
No salt, spice, sugar allowed yet and was advised at this stage to keep carbs to a minimum as it’s already a struggle to get enough in… as she said (and it’s so true) it’s about conscious ‘eating’ and if I can incorporate the right Huel products into that, then in my mind that’s half the battle sorted!
