Liquid Diet Or Atkins Diet 2 Weekl Diet



Recommended Posts

I had mysurgury consult yesterday. I was told Atkins diet 2 weeks or longer before the vsg. I am curious of other input on what their doctor recommended and possibly why? My doctor said the atkins with no carbs and sugar will reduce the size for the operation. I would think maybe atkins and then maybe two days before the operation switch to liquid so the system is cleaned out of all food. Curious to hear replies. I'm in greenville NCand the doctor is Dr. Nazeri of Sothern Surgical.

My DR put me on Protein Drink (premixed or powder mix) for morning and lunch, then lean Protein with a sald or veggies for dinner. I only have to have all liquids day before surgery. First day of the diet was hard, I had head hunger and felt weird to drink my meal. I coped by chewing sugar free gum and increased my Water intake. But I am 4 days in and 9lbs down, have 10 days to go.

I was able to eat normally all the way till 6pm the night before surgery, no problems orcomplications.

My doctor required the liquid diet, but Atkins makes sense. It is very similar to how we are supposed to eat after we start eating real food.< /p>

My doctor had me do an Atkins type for 2 weeks prior to surgery and just liquid from 6pm night before surgery. He said it will reduce the size of the liver and make the liver more pliable just as much as a liquid diet would. And my surgery went just fine and I was told my liver was very healthy and pliable during surgery. Every surgeon has different methods and thoughts though.

I think that's a great idea. Love the way you're thinking.

I was told liquid only for the 2 weeks. I haven't really been able to do just liquid :( This is just day 3 of the 'liquid only' But when I talked with my aunt she said her surgeon only had her do a liquid diet for 3 days. Obviously different surgeons but same procedure.

      It's Saturday!!! My fiance and I are out doing yard work and I made the mistake of not staying hydrated before going out so now my body is shaking and weak. I have my pre-op appointment Tuesday, the 2nd and I am trying my hardest to lose another 2 lbs by then.

        You got this!! When I had the sleeve I cried every day during the liquid phase, It was during the super-bowl! I was sooo hungry I sucked on a piece of pork rind. LOL
