I am a sleeve from 9/19/16.  I am having a hard time figuring out what I should be eating.  I know I am on a soft diet.  Every morning I have a shake made with 8 oz skim milk and JBN protein powder.  Lately I am using 4oz water and 4 oz milk to use calories in other areas. I put my calcium powder in it.  I drink it for the protein boost.  I've been eating chicken salad, ham salad, egg salad, (i use a medicine cup to measure the salads.  The ones they gave us at the hospital) melba toast, cheese, yogurt, scrambled egg.  Some cream soups.   I drink a Low Sodium V8 every day as I have not added veges or fruits (should I be eating veges and fruit at this point?)  I have had mashed potatoes.  I take medicine with applesauce.  I keep my calories most days ~600, some days less, one day more.  I keep a food diary on my fitness pal.  I drink water and take my Bariatric Fusion chewable vitamins.  I have only lost 5 pounds since I saw Dr. Claros, and a total of 14 since my surgery.  I lost ~18  on the liquid diet prior.  The scale has been stuck for days now.

I am actually lost when it comes to what I should be eating.

Am I doing something wrong?
