Gaining Weight On Pre-Op Diet



Recommended Posts

WTF! I am on the pre-op diet to shrink my liver and have gained a pound. How is this possible when I am not eating crap. Could the fact I have eaten more Protein than I usually would be the issue? I already have low BMI 30, should I stop the pre-op diet? My surgery is Monday.

Im sorry, I know this isnt answering your question but, your bmi is only 30??? Wow! I would love for my bmi to be 30.

But lets see if I can help. I think if you're following your diet, you'll be ok. Don't get discouraged. We all went and go through ups and downs on the scale. Just keep doing what you're doing. You'll be fine.

Yes Vampsy, BMI of 30. I have about 40 pounds to lose. Lose being the main word...not gain. Maybe it is just Water weight.

you shouldn't be thinking about the scale now... just do what you're suppose to do. One pound could be Water weight. It's more important to shirk your liver so it can be out of the way for surgery.

Good advice msoper, I think I will put the scale away. Out of sight out of mind, hopefully.

Just do what the surgeon directed you to do. You will be fine. CONGRATS!

Where are you having your surgery? With only 40 pounds to lose you should be at target pretty quick after surgery.

      OMG! My time is quickly approaching! I can't believe in 5 days, my life will be changed forever (for the better!). I have thought about this surgery for years, but kept telling myself I didn't need it. Now that I can view it as a tool and not a solution, I realize I do need this tool. This tool will not only help me physically, but mentally as well!

      Getting close - 196 lbs as of this week.  Goal is 195.  Actually, I'm thinking of adjusting my goal.  I'd like to get down to 185 to get rid of this scraggly belly jiggle, then try to build back up to 200 with muscle instead.

      I’m a complete novice on forums but I think my experience I’ve had so far following a gastric balloon insertion will be interesting to someone…
      I had my obera 365 inserted on 31/08/21.
