I'm officially two weeks post-op as of 11/7/13.

I'm struggling with finding things that are low calorie/low sugar to drink.

I understand Water with crystal light, but I've gotten sick of the taste.

I've also drank my share of zero calorie/sugar sports drinks.< /p>

Any suggestions?

Maybe if you like hot chocolate, there is Swiss Miss Sensible Sweets Diet Hot Cocoa mix for 25 calories per serving.

I've done hot chocolate once or twice, but I'm looking for cooler beverages.

Thank you for input, though. C:

I don't know if these are low calorie but there's Tomato or V-8 juice and skim milk...

I love Sobe Life Water - zero calories and they come in 20 ounce bottles so 2 a day plus tea and plain water helps me reach my water goals. costco has a 12 pack at reasonable price.

Thing is, Water is making me sick.

Both in taste and in my stomach.

I forgot to mention I am 2 weeks and 3 days out so we are almost surgery twins :) LOL Getting the fluids in is definitely one of my bigger struggles.

I've been forcing myself to drink fluids, usually getting around 40 oz a day.

I just would like to get the recommended 64 oz.

Congrats on getting sugery. Hopefully it'll benefit you in the long run, and you'll be happier and healthier as a result. :)

Diluted apple juice....I find it is much easier to drink than plain Water

Can't have apple juice. It causes kidney stones and I can be very prone to them.

Thank you for the suggestion. I appreciate it. ^^

I developed an aversion to regular Water post surgery. For me, the life saver was herbal teas. I have never been a big tea drinker, but the herbal teas are not made from black or green tea leaves, but rather other herbs and spices. I find them to be warming, tummy soothing and all around a great supplement to the sweet cool drinks,

Some of my favorites:

Celestialseasonings - Safari Spice Rooibos Tea

Celestialseasonings - Sleepy Time

Yogi - Get Regular

I like many others too - licorice, several of the rooibos based ones etc.

Aside from Water, the only other thing I drink is Diet Peak Tea (found in the refrigerated section at the store) with a packet of True Lemon. It's delish!

ETA: This is the brand http://www.goldpeaktea.com/Flavors#/diet. The diet tea can be hard to find, but Walmart and Super Target carry it. Kroger is hit or miss.

They have smaller bottles that are not refrigerated, but they have a weird flavor that I don't like.

      I feel like I've finally gotten past the biggest hurdle. Surgery date is September 6th, the day after Labor Day, and yesterday I got my insurance approval letter. I've followed everything they've told me to do, and I've even lost 30 lbs on my own since hubby had to change his diet for diabetes. No worries now about having to do 4 weeks of the liver shrinking diet instead of 2. On my initial visit, if I had gained just 5lbs I would have had to do 4 weeks. It's getting closer. Just 2 more months to wait.

      I am looking for people to connect with that are 4-5 years out. Many of the support sights I go to are all newbies. And while I enjoyed that when i first had my surgery and found it useful, I am looking to exchange ideas with folks that are out a few years. I am slowly gaining weight back and losing my excitement. I don't want that!

      How do you stay focused? I'm struggling a bit the past three days.  All I want is sweets and carbs.  I have no clue what changed but for some reason I'm craving hard.  I'm literally dreaming about food and when I wake up, I'm thinking about my next meal.  I'm not "hungry" but so munchy.  I'm trying to stay focused, busy, exercise and the likes but this looking struggle is getting to be so hard.  I meet with my nutritionist tomorrow and I'm so hopeful she has some advice.  My protein intake is great, liquids on point, even throwing in some raw veggies and berries to curb the sweet/carb craving.  Thoughts?
