April 15th...I am struggling with the liquid diet as well. If it were more savory than sweet I'd be better. Only 4 days left, Clear Liquids and then surgery. I'm actually looking forward to the full liquid diet vs what I've been on.

@@TXMissy and anyone else having issues with the liquid diet, I have found that the flavored chicken broths have helped me a lot. I believe it is swanson brand. They have flavors like Tuscan Chicken, Louisiana Cajun, and Thai Ginger, etc. Also, my doctor gave me the option to make the Protein Drink at home. 1 qt. skim or 1% milk and 1 1/3 cup of powdered milk. The only "sweet " foods I consume would be sugar free Jello, juice or popsicle. I choose not to eat those too often. I simply enjoy a shake a snack ( popsicle or jello) a shake for, some Soup, another shake, and then maybe a popsiclein the evening. Hope this helps. The struggle is real, but no of us are alone.

My date is April 23rd. Is anyone having a hard time with this liquid diet? I have been drinking Unjury, Isopure, different kinds of shakes and I am tired of everything already. I just started yesterday and I cheated today. It wasn't really bad but I had hard boiled egg whites and a small piece of boneless skinless chicken. Any suggestion??

I just started my 2 weeks liquid diet and my surgery is April 23rd. Question? My friend had bypass done in February and she told me that was ate hard boiled egg whites (no yolk) throughout the 2 week liquid diet. She said her surgery was fine and the doctor said everything looked good. Has anyone else tried egg whites or other alternatives?

My nut told me today some egg whites were allowable, but not every day.

Thanks jevinity. I have had a couple of days where the broth saved me. They didn't tell I could have it. I'm just not big on sweet stuff and that's it. I need food or at least food flavored stuff. Almost there though. Today has been the best day. I am finding it harder to finish the shakes.< /p>

Day 14 of my liquid diet!! I made it and didn't cheat once. Kind of proud of myself. Surgery is tomorrow morning and I have to be at hospital at 5:30. Good thing I'll get to sleep some tomorrow as I'm sure I'll not sleep much tonight. Not anxious or afraid, just excited.!!

Having trouble with the liquid diet? ?? I was!!! but I am almost there! Thursday!!! Super excited! What saved me.... broth, but not just any broth. I bought wonton Soup from my favorite Chinese restaurant and asked for no wontons. It is so much better than the broth I have made at home. It cost about the same as well. It's clear and delicious! I actually feel like I am eating a tasty meal? I also like the onion soup from bennihana and found a copy cat recipe online. Its a combo of chicken and beef broth. I simply strain out the onion and omit the mushroom.

      Hey October Surgery friends...how are you doing? I've lost 15 lbs since surgery on 18th.42 lbs overall. Wearing clothes that feel great. Had a bout of cold and stomach flu and still having some nausea off and on after that but getting better, I think. 
      Seems like I fill up and have minor pain quicker when I eat hot foods rather than cold. Anyone else notice this?
      Still sooo glad I did this.
