Its been really hard for me also. What I have been doing is my fitness pal, and logging everything I eat and trying to stay in the calorie range it set for me. It has helped me quite a bit, plus you know you have to log it, so you think before you eat. That is the only thing helping me so far. will be glad for the surgery, and get this part over with. Sometimes all I eat is 2 protein shakes and soup for supper. Surprisingly I havent been that hungry and when I get hungry I just eat. Good luck and if you come up with some other good stuff let me know, ok?

I began making small changes at first. I stopped late night snacking and I began to exercise. I made sure I was eating nuts protein vegetables and made one meal a protein shake. Do follow all instructions from your Dr. Prior to surgery. It is for a short period of time change your habits read instead of watching TV lift weights when you get bored instead of going for food. You can do it!

  • Thanks for responding I am going to start a new regimen where I eat at scheduled times and add exercise into my daily routines. I am taking all of the recommended vitamins and supplements required after surgey too get use to them, and I use the unjury protein shakes three times a week my nutritionist told me not to do them eeryday so I dont burn out on them before surgery. I also just got a new food log so hopefully I will start making changes for the better. Unjuy protein shake mix is really good with V8 fusion drinks with ice added perfect for the summer time.

I went back to weight watchers about 6 weeks before surgery, which was 4 weeks befor the pre-op diet and it helped me "de-tox" before going on the stringent liquid diet- lost some weight pre-op and I was glad I did this. I still go actually to help me stay accountable to the scale. I alos dring at least 64 oz of water and log every bite of food that goes in my mouth.
