I had my wisdom teeth taken out today, so I won't be able to eat solid foods for 2 weeks. I need a list of soft foods that I can eat, because I want to prevent as much weight loss as possible. (I already have a low body fat, so I will be losing muscle)
Well, in dietetics, we have what's called a mechanical-soft or chopped diet. Just chop your food, then eat it. You can also go with puree, which is even better. Put every god-damned thing you eat in a food processor and turn it into baby food. I once tried pureed liver for a test-tray audit in a nursing home. It was wonderful.
Dude, you already know what's soft: mashed and boiled potatoes, oatmeal, grits, apple sauce, bananas, boiled chicken, high-quality cold cuts, cheese, nut butters, yogurt, sauteed and steamed vegetables.
2 weeks? bullshit. I trained the same day I got my teeth pulled out. But I didnt stop spitting blood for 3 days. Then ,maybe because my immune system was attacked and weak, I got a gastro and vommitted for 1week. I lost 3 month of training in 1 week
I would also suggest possibly looking into a gainer of some sort (that is, if you're looking for more calories) you can easily drink a shake. FYI don't use a straw for a while, you could possibly get dry socket.
just had a throat surgery, took out tonsils, uvula, soft palette. Percocet is your friend. Anyway, couldn't drink the Metabolic Drive, something in it irritated. No citrus, no smoothies with fruit, no solid food for the first week at least.
Lived on popsicles, gatorade, water, iced coffee. eventually boiled some veggies then blenderized them and cooked them again with some soy sauce to make a broth/soup, so added all kinds of soups, but not tomato or anything with citric acid (no katsup on your potatoes. Yogurt, cottage cheese mixed together goes down pretty good too. Plain isopure protein was ok.
X2 no infection from trying to tough it out. You will lose weight, period. it will come back.
I feel your pain, good luck buddy. It will be over soon.
