Does Vegetable Broth count as a clear liquid?



Recommended Posts

I am 5 days post op and feel pretty darn good. I've been living on chicken broth with a bit of hot sauce added, diluted apple juice, and jell-o. I would love to have some warm vegetable broth but it's not technically 'clear'. However it is the same thinness and consistency as the chicken broth.

I only have a few more days of this phase so it's no biggie if i can't sip the veggie broth...but it sounds really wonderful right now.

I have a call in to my nut but am really curious as to what other's have sipped on in the clear liquid phase.

I'm pretty sure veggie broth is fine.

So are chicken and beef broth. If you can see through it, it is a clear liquid!

If your unsure you can always pour it through a strainer.

Absolutley. Just watch the salt. I felt like a salt lick after 2 days on broth.< /p>

make your own. add whatever vegetable you want to your liquid and cook away. strain the vegetables and drink to your hearts desire. I loved vegetable stock or broth cooked this way.

I usually do have freezer bags full of chicken, beef, and vegetable broth. But I fell way behind the ball in getting that stuff ready for post-surgery.

I bought some low-sodium organic vegetable broth and it is just what I needed! I measure out 4 oz of Water, chicken broth, diluted apple juice, and now veggie broth in these tiny little Tupperware's in the morning and then get busy cycling through them all day long. Adding the vegetable broth has made getting in more fluids today SO much better.

Thanks all!

Yes, all the broths qualify. Add some seasoning to it if it's too bland.

      I just looked through all my old pants after my pre-op pants started getting to big. Keep in mind that I wear men's pants (usually cargos) because I am so tall 5'10"/5'11" ish. I also find that men's baggies tend to fit me better.
      I started out at a 44 in waist pant and quickly found that I was back down to my 42's. So even when thise got to be too big, I had to start pulling old clothes out of storage. After finding my 38's, I thought that these would not yet fit, but when I tried them on, they fit perfectly. I also found some older pants that now fit better than I remembered. What a relief! It's not like I can pop down to the store like I could do in the US and the styles here in Sweden are all skinnt jeans which I cant stand. I also found some 36's, but I'm not mentally ready to try those on yet. The biggest challenge will be buying women's clothing again.

      slow and steady wins the race.  don't get discouraged and just keep at it. Let your sleeve do its job and try not to stress yourself out.
      hope you are all having a great summer and enjoying what your sleeve has given you.

        Great reminder about how fast you can lose weight. The mind games we play with ourselves are the worst.
