    6 month diet before approval

    Thanks everyone. Your comment have convinced me I've misunderstood! I'm so glad I found this sight.

    6 month diet before approval

    I agree with the concept of dieting to get ready for this life change and if I was told to eat 4-6 small meals a day, no problem. My concern is how low cal this diet is and there is actually only eating one time a day. I looked through all of my paperwork again and I think there is a step missing. I will be calling the Doctor on Monday. Thanks for the encouragement!

    It's the diet they gave me during my consultation. 3 of their or comparable protein shakes and one meal of 3oz lean meat and 1 cup of approved veggies. I will talk to my Insurance co. Thanks
  4. I am at the very beginning of my insurance required 6 mo medically monitored diet. It is 700-1000 calories a day. I'm so hungry, I can't imagine being able to keep it up for 6 months. I'm afraid if I really keep on track that I won't qualify for the surgery if I lose too much. Then, because this is a crash diet, I will gain it all back. Frustrated and nauseous
