How Much Weight Did You Lose On Preop Diet?



Recommended Posts

I'm just trying to figure out what the norm is. I have a friend who's lost over 20 pounds in 2 weeks, but I've only lost 10 (in 1 1/2 weeks). I hope this doesn't mean I'm going to be a slow loser! :(

I believe it all depends on what type of pre op diet you are on? I am on only liquids, Jello and a salad. I started last Monday and have already lost 10lbs

During my pre-op class at Kaiser Permanente the surgeons wanted us to lose 10% in order for them to do the surgery. I didn't reach that goal and I still was ok'd for the surgery by the surgeon. I'm sure you'll be just fine.

I'm on a 2 week liquid only including Protein Shakes, broth, sf Jello. I can tell I'm smaller (how my clothes fit) but I was just worried I was slow. I'll probably hit 11 or 12 pounds lost by Friday.

I was sleeved on Tuesday the 24th.

I started my pre op diet on the 9th.

I had 3 EAS carb control shakes a day, and one awesome spinach and grilled chicken salad at night. I lost 16 pounds, and my Doctor said my liver was beautiful, he said good job!!

Leaving the hospital today, my girls and the nurses told me, you barely have any weight to lose! LOL!! I still have 60 pounds to get to my personal goal!!!

Good Luck to you pre op sleevers, I will save a spot for you on the Loser's Bench!!!

How much weight you will lose will depend on how much you weigh, how much weight you lost pre-liquid diet, because sometimes you stall. Depends on how much excess Water weight you are carrying and how much exercise you get in during this time.

I had surgery on Friday and I lost 16 pounds! I was very happy with that and my surgeon said I did awesome. :)

Piercedphoenix, I read that you are having surgery May 7th, so that's a 16 day pre-op liquid diet? I heard some people have 3 days, I was told two weeks, so I am not sure if that is 10 days or 14 days, hopefully I'll find out more this week.

Good luck to you and 16 pounds is a good amount of weight! Good for you and good luck!

Mina - every doc is different & some doctors have different rules for different patients. My doc has 2 plans - one for people w/ fatty liver & one for people w/o a fatty liver. Both have to stick to the same amount of calories - 650 cal, 70 g Protein, 60 g carbs, 10 g fat - for a full 14 days before surgery.

@mina- the doc wanted me to start right away when I did my pre op class. It comes out to 16 days. I have co-morbid conditions (PCOS and type 2 diabetes), and before I started the liquid diet I was 347. My doc felt it was best to do the liquids to minimize any liver damage and to try and reduce any fatty liver issues. I met someone else here in St. Louis that had the same surgery, same doc, an she didn't have to do liquids. I have seen ppl do 3 days, 7 days, 14 days, and even 21 days!
