Hey Fellow sleeves. I am starting my liquid diet I'm two weeks. I REALLY want to start to loose weight then. Does anyone have dome advice besides a whole lot of exercise on a good daily plan where I won't be hungry?

I wanna hear these suggestions too, cuz I hope to have surgery very soon and am worried most about preop liquid diet and how to avoid eating my arm off. :)

GOOD LUCK with your surgery. :) :)

There's really no magic answer to this you just have to do it it sucks a little and I got whiny sometimes... But a girl has to do what a girl has to do! Oh and exercise and liquid diet at the same time?? Hell no, I was not going to starve and move!!

I totally agree! I am on it now, day 4. I have to say today was really easy. Went grocery shopping, watched my daughter eat Chick-fil-a and did not want any and came home and made Spaghetti. I could not have done that day 1. It gets easier. Its all psychological, I learned that today. Good luck

Really??? I've been freaking out thinking about when I have to do my one week liquid diet prior to surgery & how am I going to cook for my family & smell food? I get HUNGRY even eating breakfast/lunch/dinner & a snack around 3-ish! So does the liquid Protein stuff fill you up? Is that what you're drinking?

I think that's my biggest fear is hunger! I l0ve food! But who doesn't. Eating consumes my day, I feel like I can eat all day & still be hungry, so I'm extremely nervous for this pre op diet! I'm trying now to cut down my food consumption, & I'm trying to wean myself if off of soda ( coke, my addiction!!). I already have the lack_of caffeine headache which is horrible, & I'm down to 2 cans a day! I'm really trying to stay motivated and follow everything, the fear of the unknown is horrible! I'm trying now to start to exercise a bit and hope to slowly continue into my pre op diet. A friend of mine did her liquid pre op diet and took an hour walk a day and lost almost 35 pounds in two weeks!

I am the same way. I love food!! I had a 2 week food funeral and gained 5 pounds. It really helped cause there is nothing I crave right now. I thought it would be harder. Dont get me wrong its not easy. I drink a Protein Shake for Breakfast and dinner. sugar free Jello and broth through out the day. I love the broth from a bouillon cube, not can or box. Crystal light is my bff. You can do it!!

I was also a HEAVY Coke drinker. No headaches or withdrawals. I never realized there was so much other stuff to drink. Good luck.

I hear ya. I love coke from morning until night I drink it. This sucks. But it will be worth it.

I've been through the liquid diet before, so am DOUBLE dreading it this time. The first couple days suck the most. Have tons of Jello on hand, I ate it like there was no tomorrow. And popsicles. (sugar free, of course!). When you get really hungry and/or shaky, consider adding more Protein.< /p>

I didn't have to do a pre-op diet, but I will tell you Once you are home from surgery and your in a liquid diet you will still have to cook for your family and smell yummy food. There has to be a lot of mental self talk sometimes. I am 12 days post op and just started my full liquids. Today I will be making cup cakes and potato salad for Easter tomorrow. It's very difficult to make things you love and not be able to taste your product. While everyone is enjoying Easter dinner, I will be sip sip sipping on some Soup and Water. You have to get past the me mental, and sometimes that's the hardest.
