Question re: Dr. Aceves post-opt diet

Recommended Posts

I am on day 7/8 (not sure if I count the day of surgery) and I see that I allowed to have Protein Drinks (mixed with water). I dont have access to isopure..but I have Atkins shakes..I also have something called "High Alpha whey Protein and whey isolate Protein Powder. Would any of these work during this phase of the diet? I am really struggling with getting my protein in. :scared0:

I'm told you count the day after surgery as day one. And the following is directly copied and pasted from the info Dr. Aceves sent me to prepare for post op.

"1) For the first 10 days following surgery, nothing other than Clear liquids and a Protein supplement should be consumed. ABSOLUTELY no solid food!!! Clear Liquids consist of Jell-O, sugar-free Crystal light, Water, and broth. A high quality Protein supplement such as Isopure or Whey protein should be used in order to obtain approximately 70 grams of protein per day."

Since it specifically mentions whey protein as being acceptable, it should be fine if added to Water and not in a milk based shake. You could flavor it up with some Crystal Light if you need to.

Enjoy.. (lol)

      Kind of nervous, as expected. One month out from surgery!

      😫 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 .
