There have been ongoing campaigns in U.S. hospitals to force out the McDonald's and Subway restaurants which have taken up residence in some of that mighty expensive real estate. A great example of "do what I say, not what I do" but considering the SAD not that surprising.

I hope your wife's recovery is swift.

this is Day 6 post surgery for my wife. She has been home since noon on Day 2. They kept her until she was on phase 3 of her diet - full liquids including protien shakes, strained soups, jello, pudding, and plain greek yogurt. Milk has been replaced - by choice,not by doctor - with almond milk. Phase 3 lasts for 30 days, then gets reused from time to time to "reset" her diet.

I have been eating the same protein/almond smoothies, and I've been having some of the soups. The soups are a concern For me, most soups are two high in carbs for keto.I have to choose carefully and sparingly. Ussually that means 1/2 cup servings with bone broth and water. And, I've been adding plain whey protien to soup at the dining room table(adding before microwave causes a mess LOL). Hot sauce has been a wonderful way to spice up the soup.

I was cheating with additional keto type meals during the pre-op diet until my wife came home on day 2. The past 4 days I have not strayed from my full liquid diet.

Anyway, my bg is 6-7 ish, and I'm at the low end of my typical body weight for the past 4 weeks so this is definitely not hurting me.

My wife is down 50lbs from 8weeks ago when she started practising her new way eating. I am extremely happy and jealous for her.

I'm glad to see that things are going so well for Mrs. NSDad -- and appreciative of seeing how resourceful you've been in getting by on her way of eating...

Glad to hear NSMom is doing well and wishing for speed recovery. Congrats on the weight loss for both of you. I take it you are diluting the soups with a more keto friendly liquid options. Good move, what are your plans after the clear liquid phase?

Don't know what your carb needs are on soups, but these soups look really good, and claim they are low carb.....

my favorite soup so far is campbells cream of mushroom soup at 7 net carbs per 1/2 can.It doesn't need to be cut

many other soups are over 22 grams per cup, requiring me to cut back to a 1/2 cup serving that i can extend .

my basic strategy is to dilute things down with chicken bone broth, but out of convenience I'm finding that I will use the almond milk.

I've been limiting my almond milk to 1 cup or less per meal ( 30 cal. 2grams of carbs) but those numbers are so good, tonight I omited the plain whey protein from my soup and made a chocolate smoothy with an extra cup of almond milk.

I've been a fan of bone broth since I read keto clarity by jimmy moore. But now I'm an even bigger fan of it.

My wife has been mixing my home made bone broth with equal parts walmart bone broth. She says it makes the walmart bone broth taste better
Just reading about bone broth makes me crave a cookie.

i mentioned yesterday to nsmom that her soups are causing me carb issues. if i don't do the due diligence to dilute them down, I'm coming in at 40-65 grams and when I do I'm counting 18-25 gram with more that i'm not counting.

She suggested that I switch back to my regular keto meals.

I could do alot worse than listen to her so I think I will LOL
