5 Days Until Pre-op Diet Begins



So I have days until I begin my pre-op diet. I am scared I am going to be starving but look forward to losing the weight. I bought 3 cases of protein drinks and have a few cans of soup picked out. I noticed all of the doctors have different requirements for the preop diet. My doctor requires 14 days for the diet. Two protein shakes and one can of chunky soup. If you are really hunger and have to have a snack, he recomends only 2 snacks a day and it has to be sugar free...pudding, jello or popsicle. I have to do some more shopping to get ready. I also need to buy my vitamins. Not looking forward to this diet because I LOVE to eat.

I had a girl last week tell me that she had the surgery done a year ago and hated it. Said she has had all of the fluid removed from her band so she can eat. She said she felt nauseas all the time and could never eat anything. I know eveyone has their own opions and experiences with this surgery but I am not going to let the negativity discourage me. I am going to succeed at this.
