Yes, Doc Gave Go Ahead On Salads.

Recommended Posts

Well saw the Doc Friday and received the news on my pre op diet. I have to do 3 weeks on the liver shrink diet. Man that will be hard. I did do a liquid only boot camp diet this month just to do a body cleanse. Lost 15 lbs. and feel much better. Anyways I thought the 3 weeks would be liquids only and it was going to be extreme but my Doc came through and said I could have lettuce, radishes, celery and such also. So, viola! A salad and This will be my filler and help out greatly.

this all sounds great. having done all liquids, now you can have a few things to make a nice salad

i hadn't had a salad til recently - measured 1/3 cup of lettuce, then 1/3 cup of other "goodies"

NUT kindof laughed and told me i don't need to measure the lettuce since it is mainly wather. did i feel silly, of course count the calories for the "extras in the salad :rolleyes:

back to you - ;)

congrats on losing those 15 lbs prior to WLS

luck to you


not to nitpick, maybe i am though :mellow:

IMO - per your name, you are/shoud be doing this WL initially for you - family next ;)

see you in sleeveland

      Having another blah food day today.  My lunch has been sitting here with me for almost two hours and all I've managed to eat was maybe 1/2 oz of grilled chicken and 2 cucumber slices.  Eff it, I'm done.

      This video is an excerpt from the same, larger video. In this video, I pull out only the Food Addiction portion. Its such an important revelation for me and it may help someone else, thus I think it warrants its own video. 🙂
