Sleeve 8/15- Hate This Liquid Diet!



Recommended Posts

My surgery is 8/15 also, the liquid diet is hard. I also was told I could do any of the following 1 egg, or salad with petite shrimp, 5oz chicken breast, it really has helped I have that in the am after I have had 1 Protein drink earlier. I have not been able to drink 5 Protein drinks a day. I get 2 or 2 1/2 down. but sticking to my guns. I was shocked I had lost weight the last week. I did not think I had lost anything. Good Luck!!

I have surgery on the 15th too. I bought Yasso smoothie packs at costco. They have bananna/strawberry with little frozen pieces of greek yogurt. With 1 scoup of vanilla protien, 1 cup nonfat milk or vanilla soy and 1/2 a package of the Yasso in the blender, its really filling and tastes really good. Not a commercial for powders?utm_source=BariatricPal&utm_medium=Affiliate&utm_campaign=CommentLink" target="_ad" data-id="1" >unjury, but I have tried alot of protien powders and this is the best.

I hope everything goes well on the 15th for you, Im at 10:30 ET and just cant wait to get it done!!!

Hi, everyone! My surgery's on the 20th, so a few days after most of you. This pre op liquid diet is THE. PITS. Now that it's the weekend, I dont' trust myself to be out with friends (dinners and bars) and resist temptation. I have 9 more days to go.

My NUT recommended the low carb SlimFast shakes and it is horrendous. I've found other shakes that are better, but if I never have one of those again, it'll be too soon. I'm jealous of those of you that get an egg and cheese a day! I'm all liquid for 14 days. The headaches of days 1 and 2 are definitely gone but on day 5, I still would just love a sandwich.

I love that the silver lining (for most it seems) is that this is one of the hardest things of the whole journey which in itself is a comfort. Every day on this pre op diet is an absolute struggle for me - one day at a time!!

Are there caloric restrictions on the pre-op liquid diet?

This was the worst part of my whole sleeve journey. The preop diet was such an emotional and physical experience for me. I wish you the best of luck!

      Hey October Surgery friends...how are you doing? I've lost 15 lbs since surgery on 18th.42 lbs overall. Wearing clothes that feel great. Had a bout of cold and stomach flu and still having some nausea off and on after that but getting better, I think. 
      Seems like I fill up and have minor pain quicker when I eat hot foods rather than cold. Anyone else notice this?
      Still sooo glad I did this.
