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

      OMG! I dreamt of cake!!
      As of late, my dreams have been food obsessed. Last night I dreamed of gorging on good old American sheet cake with chocolate frosting. There was white frosting as well. Good thing we can't get that in Sweden! I just hope that I haven't become too engrossed in food. BUT they are only dreams after all.

      Feel like it's time for a status update, I haven't been on here regularly in a while and I need to keep my mindset focused on my goals.
      I haven't weighed myself in ~ 3 weeks.  I think I'm becoming the opposite of "obsessive" about tracking my progress and it could cause me some issues.  The good thing is that there have still been quite a number of NSV's happening that is telling me that I'm still progressing without knowing what the scale says.
      First one is that a belt I bought about 5 weeks ago because all my other belts were too big is also on the last hole so I'll have to buy yet another belt again.  second, I bought new jeans about a month ago and I have a lot more slack in the waist than I did when I purchased them.  I also boarded a plane and had about 8 inches of slack in the belt.  Finally, I hit my goal last week of being able to ride go-carts with my kids.  The last time I tried about 4 years ago, I had to leave because I couldn't fit in the harness.  This was sweet victory and I showed those two how it was done on the race course!!  😈
