    Sorry, but this is a tough one! I can't imagine a meal with no carbs whatsoever ---- that knocks out grains, veggies, fruits and dairy ---- what's left? I hope this is only a temporary thing!

    I can only sympathize with your G/F and hope that she is well soon. Have you tried posting this in the 'Special Diets, Food Allergies/Restrictions, Food Substitutions, and General Dieting Tips' forum:

    Hi. My sister had the roux and Y gastric bypass surgery in Jan., and so I know what a challenge those first 3 months are! (she's lost 80 lbs and looks great, by the way! icon_biggrin.gif ) At first, she'll be given some lists of things she can and can't have. And the really tough thing, will be for your friend to find a protein drink that's palatable, because she's going to need to drink them every day for the rest of her life! my sister bought SOOO many that tasted nasty!(and they're not cheap either!) Then she finally found one that she really likes. If you want, I could find out the name of it.
    There are three different stages of dietary lists for post gastric bypass surgery patients. I called my sister across country every single day in the early months, so I felt like I heard what she went through in those early months. ok, I'm rambling here. To start, in phase 1, your friend will be on liquids only, so broth, suguar free jello, sugar free popsicles and protein shakes. Then your friend will be advanced to phase 2 foods which include a bit more texture, but still limiting. A couple tablespoonsful of food at a meal is all they can have. I recall that half of one scrambled egg went down easy. It's imperative that your friend chew food VERY thoroughly. Trying to swallow even small chunks, and they'll get lodged and block the opening to the new stomach pouch. A few tablespoons of instant mashed potatoe (I know, I was surprised it was on her list, cause it does have some carbs, but we're talking really tiny amount of food) and she had to thin it out with a couple teaspoons of gravy to so it would be smooth enough to swallow. Later on during stage 3, your friend will be able to eat some refried beans with a bit of melted cheese. I can't remember the other things right now. But I found a website for gastric bypass patients, and there was a forum where you could ask questions, and that's where I got some ideas. You are a good friend and an essential supporter for your friend as she goes through this. The first three months are the toughest. If I find the website, I'll post it here for you.
    Sorry this is so long!
