Magnesium Citrate Bowel Prep Weight Loss



Recommended Posts

Okay, I have searched and searched for an answer, but can't find one. Wondering if anyone had to do the Magnesium Citrate bowel prep 2 days before surgery, and if so, did you and how much weight was lost?

My surgeon didn't require this step but I did it anyway. Don't know how much weight I lost though, sorry.

No sorry I can't help because my surgeon didn't make me do it so I didn't.

It's not really to make you lose weight. It's just to clear the bowels. I've had alot of surgeries and trust me. Do it. the more you can empty the pipes, the less issues you will have post. Some pain meds along with surgical trauma to the bod and no real food intake, will play hell with your digestive tract. constipation is miserable. My doc didn't even require it, but I used mag- cit the day before surgery anyway. Glad I did. No problems after. I even take Colace post surgery for some added assistance in that area as well. After using the Mag-cit, don't wander far from a bathroom. (usually within a couple of hours) ;)

I plan to use it as well pre-op. My doctor is not requiring it but I have done it before. Much better than an enema. I just have to take it about 72 hours before because I have a very slow metabolism. It's not bad tasting but sometimes you can get orange flavor at costco. Put it in the fridge and it's honestly similar to soda.

I had to do it the night before surgery. It wasn't for weight loss, though. Pouring it over ice helped it go down. Don't wander far from your own bathroom after drinking it!

      Hide and Seek? No....   If you have noticed, it’s been a little bit of stretch between posts. It’s not because I am not interested in blogging. I absolutely love sharing my journey with you.   You see, my world has changed! I now exercise every single morning with a 3 to 4-mile walk. I also now meal prep so I don’t fall into old habits.   I am also a bit hooked on closing my Apple Watch Fitness Rings! In fact, I am obsessed with doubling and tripling most of them.   So this does take up a lot of time and by the time you add work into the mix and family time, it becomes a shorter day.   Priorities are in order for me and I could not be happier.   So in the last week, I’ve been hitting goals that I never thought I would be able to hit again. I weigh myself on Sunday’s now. It’s just easier to do before I get dressed for church. It just feels good. I refuse to constantly get on the scale when I see everyday victories. Like getting back into clothes I never thought I could, or taking the time to just breathe and be grateful for the blessings I have in my life right now.   Continued on www.SabrinaGoddess.com

      6 Weeks Post Op!

      My world is drastically different! I now walk 3 to 4 miles a day and I’m constantly getting up to move my body! .

      I close my Apple Watch rings daily and about 4 to 6 days a week I double or triple them!

      I have been released to have all foods. When I reintroduce some I need to start at 1 ounce to see how “Tiny Tummy” likes it!

      I am not reintroducing sugars, coffee or junk! I did not pay close to $13,000 to fail! .

      I went to get follow up bloodwork done this week and my numbers are all in the perfect range! .

      This is my new world and I am happy it!

        I didn’t see it either but I wish I had now for both the battle on court & the ball tampering accusations flying around everywhere now.
