I'm a vegetarian: pre-op & post-op HELP!?

Recommended Posts

You didn't have a pre-op diet?

I'm on the very low end of the weight spectrum (31 bmi), I work out daily, and my Dr. still requires a week of pre-op dieting and 3 days of pure liquids. Lucky you!

Though I find myself adding Protein (a bit) right now, I'm fearful of actually cheating on the pre-op thing, as I want my liver to be as small as possible for him. If I can't stand it at night, I have one hard boiled egg. I am hoping this is not going to cause any major harm.

I have experimented with agar gel (I work in an Asian area, lots of brands of the agar flakes and super cheap!) and it's not pleasant but it does give the illusion of being fuller!
