Does Kaiser Require Pre-Op Diet?



Recommended Posts

Hi, I began the WLS process with Kaiser in the beginning of August. I'm still a long ways off from surgery, but was wondering if Kaiser requires a pre-op diet? I need to lose 7 lbs. I was able to lose 2 pounds last month, but stress eating has got me putting the weight back on and then some. Is it a requirement to lose the weight prior to the surgery?

I had my surgery at Kaiser South San Francisco and my surgeon required me to lose 20 pounds before he would schedule a date. I didn't have to do a liquid diet but they did give me a pre-op diet plan. It may seem like the process takes a long time but it's over before you know it! Best to you.

I have kaiser. And during the options class they want you to lose 20% of your weight when you start the class..you are put on the scale before every class.

They want you to lose 20% of your weight. Many times the surgeon will NOT do the the surgery if you gain. They want to see that you are serious about weight loss. You should be able to lose some while you take the options class. I only lost 15 during options class but should have lost 45. Like I said, as long as you dont gain any weight you should be ok...but ultimately it is up to the surgeon.

        Hello Joset, why haven't you been given a diet plan? Did you have your surgery in the UK? Every surgeon has a different diet, and no two people are on the same one. Weird I know. Contact your team if you can

        Mine was two weeks clear liquids

        Two weeks on soups, milk shakes and broths all with out lumps

        two weeks on pureed foods { I couldn't stomach this step }

        two weeks on soft foods like Protein yogurt, stewed mince and veg, soft scrambled eggs. Pate on hard crackers

        Then onto any food I fancied. If you struggle on any step or with any foods go back a step for a few days. Eggs, salmon and chicken are hard for beginners.

        Sorry I missed your original post, hope you are still on here.
