    I had a problem with any powdered form of protein. They all seemed to have an after taste? I like EAS drinks and they are cheap but only if really cold; prefer the vanilla but the strawberry is not bad.

    You can do it! Just remember the reason for the pre-op diet. Not only so your liver won't be harmed during the operation, but think of the diet as a dress-rehearsal for the important post op diet. I'm almost two weeks post op and can tell you that it is sooo worth it! Good luck to you and let us know how it goes.

    My first day was hard. My liquid diet is 1 Premire Protein for breakfast and 1 for lunch. Dinner I can have soup. Lots and Lots of water in between. This was very hard for me because I was used to just eating anything and everything. My 2nd day was better not by much but I know as the days pass it will be better. Today is my day 3 and I'm feeling great! Jumped on the scale this morning and lost 4 lbs. I know its only 4 lbs but I'm headed in the right directions. Keep Strong and best of luck to you!!!
