Has anyone started the pre op diet yet?



Recommended Posts

I'm being banded Sept 13th. Has anyone started the preop diet? I'm not sure about choosing between pre made shakes and mixing my own, which brand to drink. My nutritionist gave me a list of brands but I have a friend who uses Carnation Instant Breskfast sugar free. A lot of decisions and I'm excited and nervous at the same time!

Look at the Protein number, you want one which is high in protein and low in carbs. I purchase EAS whey at Walmart, it's cheaper there. Slim fast has too many carbs. Mix with Water only. Milk has too many carbs. You'll see results and won't be hungry. Good luck

I have bought both powder and pre mix premier Protein they come in vanilla and chocolate from Walmart and SAMs club (get more for the money) I like the pre mixed I could never Seem to get the powder all the way dissolved

My nutritionalist wants me to start a 10 day pre op diet before I go for my last Ins required weigh in on the 19th of Aug so Friday I will be starting it.

I'm scheduled for Surgery Sept 27th and will have a 3wk pre op diet of two shakes and a healthy meal (Atkins frozen meals).

Hi All,

I am only days away from surgery! I have started my pre-op yesterday. My doctor wants me to do 2 shakes a day and 4 oz. Protein, 1 cup veggies and 1 cup of fruit for dinner. I am using Bariatric Advantage shakes. I still need to get my supplements. Any brand recomendations?

      I just had a teaspoon of hummus with a teaspoon of avocado topped with a teaspoon of greek yogurt and it. was. GLORIOUS. I'm four days out and my surgeon gave me the greenlight to work in small amounts of pureed food.

      😫 Hi, I’m new to bariatricpal! I am 8 days post op VSG. I am struggling very badly. I’ve been so emotional because I feel like I’m doing wrong. I’m afraid I’ll eat or drink to fast or eat the wrong thing. I’ve been on Pinterest and YouTube constantly for help. I have followed all of my surgeons and dieticians instructions. I just don’t know if my body is getting enough. Today, I am weak, sore, and just exhausted.

        It passes!! Everyone goes though it! It is a short term emotion! I'm almost five years post op! You made the right decision! Don't focus on the change right now. Try to entertain your mind. What your feeling only last about a week. It's related to your body adjusting and you mind adjusting. You got this!!

        I agree with Tara it's hard right now but it gets better do t forget your hormones will be all over the place you may even feel depressed. Be kind to yourself reach out and talk to people how you are feeling .
