You can do this girl!! Congrats on taking the first step! The high Protein Drinks help curb the hunger. I used to use Carnation instant Breakfast mix with skim milk, some Splenda (it wasn't sweet enough for me), a little Protein Powder (Unjury to boost the protein) , a half of a banana and lots of ice. Blend it into a shake. It made me feel like I was having a chocolate shake and it was so yummy and satisfying. I also made lots of broth Soups with veggies for times I was really hungry. Good luck on your journey!

I start mine tomorrow. I am liquids only for 5 days. I get banded on 8-4. I tried Truvia today on my strawberries. Tomorrow I will put them in the blinder w/ my shakes. Truvia was better than I thought it would be. Good luck with your journey.

That's a lot of water!! Good job! I was proud of my 128 ounces... Haha you liked my butt! Good job! I've been on my pre-op diet for over 3 weeks now...(mine isn't quite as strict as yours, thank goodness). It's been going well! Surgery is Tuesday! Ahhh!

Good luck! Hope you stay full!

I'm day 4 on my liquid diet.... No fruits, no veggies, no meat... All I'm allowed to have is sugar free popsicles/italian ice, sugar free Jello, chicken/beef broth, strained cream Soup, Water, Protein shakes... that's about it.

I'm starving and feel weak. And I'm a nurse and have to work the next 2 days, feel like I won't make it.

I have just finished day 3 of the pre-surgery diet. I am allowed to eat, but I have to count grams of carbs and Protein, and keep it under 1000 calories. I am drinking Protein Shakes for two meals and having one regular meal. Today's lunch was a lobster I had steamed while I grocery shopped and a tossed salad. So far it has not been too bad. Only a couple of times I felt hungry and I lost 4 pounds in the first 2 days. Now in day 4

and I have lost 6 pounds already.

This is the same diet I am on and I too feel so tired , not sure if that is normal but after hearing you I guess it is. Sugar free Jello and my homemade broths are my main stay, but I also love the Special K drinks because the fill me for a little longer. Hope all goes well. When is your banding, mine is 8/11

        I ended up having the surgery on March 1st.

      June 17th is almost here. Picked up everything I need for my after surgery needs. After work will go home and finish packing a light overnight bag to make sure I don't forget anything. And the final countdown begins. Not nervous at all just looking forward to the call for my arrival time.

      I am 19 days post op and I am still struggling to drink the fluids. I am not even able to drink the protein shakes their now nasty to me , I tried the protein bars & it didn’t end well. I have chest pains & I can barely eat. I am weak & my mouth is always dry, and feeling nauseous. Can anyone provide any advise. At least I doing the vitamins. Recently my chest & stomach have a burning sensation.

        I had a very difficult time finding protein shakes that tasted okay and didn't make me sick. I ended up drinking FairLife Core Power protein shakes. I love the chocolate (tastes like chocolate milk to me). I like to blend it with some ice and PB2 powder (or real PB) to give the smoothie consistency. I also found that if I put Panera's Turkey Vegetable soup through the blender, I could eat it. I survived off those two things. My chest pains were from the gas, which was incredibly bad and took so much longer than I expected to resolve. I'd definitely stay away from bars or anything solid until you've conquered liquids. I'd love to tell you the dry mouth will get better soon, but it didn't for me for a very long time (months). The plus to that was that I drank a ton of water. The good new is I suspect you are close to the light at the end of the tunnel on this first and hardest part of the journey. It gets SO much easier after this part.

        I am 2 days post-op and really struggling with everything. My depression isn't helping any. I couldn't even finish one shake today and swallowing meds is just excruciating.

      I am a week post op and I honestly feel like crap! I keep feeling so nauseous and I can’t get my self to drink a good amount of water. I honestly feel very regretful today. When does it get better?

        By the third week you will feel some relief. Don't push yourself too much with quantity that first week. I just made sure to keep sipping and walking which helped me feel better.

        I hear you. This has been the hardest day for me so far (2 days post-op).
