    Pre op diet question

    Thanks. So what I was getting at or thinking is that the liquid is not a liver shrinking requirement it’s a “getting use to it” requirement. Shrinking your liver requires low calorie and low carb. A non-wls diet to shrink a fatty liver is not a liquid diet. For those having wls making the liver diet a liquid diet is to prepare them for the liquid phase after surgery. Before I decided on wls I was told I had a fatty liver. The suggested diet was not liquid. So I was wondering why liquid for wls.

    Pre op diet question

    I guess I’m trying to understand why an equally low carb low calorie meal can’t be used instead of liquids. Why are some pre op plans all liquid? I’d rather get my protein from real food.

    Calling March Sleevers

    Yeah, those videos are LIES!! Lol! I watched them to prepare myself and everyone seemed calm and relaxed. No way, I coughed, gagged and belched all over the dr. . Biggest belch ever - sounded like Barney on the Simpsons.

    It's so close.... had my pre-op appointment today and everything went well. Also had my transnasal endoscopy... It was an option to do it in the office and I chose it because I didn't want to have to go to the hospital to get a 'procedure' done. I have never been in the hospital for anything so I figured I'd let the surgery itself be my first visit. That transnasal endo is no joke. It was the most uncomfortable thing I have ever experienced but fortunately it did not last that long. I figured if I planned to make it through sleeve surgery then I should be able to handle a peep at my stomach. I did handle it, but I'd like to never have to do it again. Best part though, no issues at all so I'm going to move forward with my sleeve next week. yay!!

    Halo top ice cream

    Halo Top is actually on my NUTS list of snack options. Birthday Cake and Peanut Butter Chocolate are my fave.

    Day 7/21 - not too bad. I am getting bored with the protein drinks 2x but pushing through. The lean meal and veggies are a sanity saver! I can also have 2-3 snacks. I’ve been consuming 700-900 calories a day. 2 more weeks and then the real fun starts!

    March 14th here! BMI 62.5 3 week semi liquid diet (changed from 2 weeks). I can have one meal of lean protein and veggies. I’m excited to lose some additional pounds pre-op. I’m taking everything I can get.

    March 14th here and I have a much longer way to go. I need to lose over 200lbs. I know I can do it, just ready to get the surgery done. Start my preop diet on 2/28 and I'm trying out protein drinks now. Most powders have been fine but extremely sweet. Had an apple melon Isopure today.... horrible! Hehehe
