    TMJ Diet - how to eat protein?

    Hi all, new here.

    Got diagnosed Friday by my PCP so I requested a CT scan and PT. In the mean time I need to do something or I'll go bonkers.

    My pain is mostly in the bottom right molar. Like someone stuck a novocaine needle in it, that pinching and it never lets up.

    I wanted to try the no chew diet but I cannot figure out how to eat protein. I don't do soy at all. Does anyone have any ideas?

    Thanks

    I would rec drinking supplemental drinks such as Ensure or Boost. Boost has a high protein option that taste pretty good. Or you could also eat things like creamed spinach, black beans, and squash which can all be mashed up and swallowed without chewing.
    Hope this helps!

    Great idea but I don't know if I can eat it because I have IBS-C. Can't eat lots of things that would normally be ok. I'll have to give it a test run. Thanks
