How Much?

  1. Derinda
    Hi All,

    I found this group to be loaded with information and I think I need some more.

    I am one week out from surgery and doing fine. I feel great. The only issue is my sugar continues to drop.

    My question is how much to eat. I am told that I can have low fat cream soup broth, oatmeal watery, cream of wheat, 100% juice diluted. I think I get it. But how much at a time.

    My thoughts are 1/4 cup of say cream soup for lunch. That the measurement should be 1/4 cup to start.

    What does the group think? Am I ok with this or way off? I DO NOT want to stretch my new stomach.

    Any help would be greatly appreciated.

    Dennis can you help?

    Thank you all for any advise you may have.

    I used the little bathroom cups which are about 3oz each. My Dr. Says 3 to 4oz every 2-3 hours. Good luck and hope this helps!

    I am at 2 oz. There's no way I could hold 4 oz.

    I am a diabetic and my sugar level drops. When that happens all hell breaks loose. I will be visiting a dr about that issue.
