    Try 2oz at a time. Protein ever hour on the hour and then 2 oz water, crystal light, broth, every 15 minutes. Believe me it helps… of course only when your awake

    Believe it or not that 2 week liquid diet helped me prepare for after surgery. I’m 2 days post op….. in pain but I’m doing well over all. 2oz of protein every hour on the hour and water or tea every 15 minutes. Is not an easy task… I feel full constantly but I have to get that protein and water in… you’ve got this !

    One day at time …glad to hear your feel a little better. if I may recommend what my doctor recommended drinking 2oz. Of protein shake ever hour on the hour and then every 15 minutes within the hour drink 2 oz of acceptable liquid, for3 weeks.
  13. Two more days before my gastric sleeve surgery! I’ve been on the Pre-Op Diet for 12 days now, this is the beginning of my journey and I’m so excited, This support group is awesome. Thank you all. The last time I was in a gym I was in my 20’s…. I found a gastric sleeve buddy who I went to high school with…she has lost over 150! She is going to show me the ropes at the local gym (planet fitness). Tomorrow I start my full liquid diet and SURGERY is Monday morning……

    September surgery buddies!!

    I’ve bought premier protein vanilla and add a teaspoon of my extract flavors…. My favorite is almond. On Amazon you can find almost any flavor imaginable. I’m on day nine of full liquid… three shakes and some sf jello, pudding, or low sodium tomato juice. Add some of those extracts to your water too. Keep strong you got this
