Cheated every day of 7 day pre op diet



Recommended Posts

Stay with it. The worse cheating I did was suck the flavoring off a Dorito chip. Lol. But I didn't eat it! I lost 25 with the liquid pre-op. It does get better but you have to plan and have your shakes and vitanins planned for the day. I discretely had two to three powder servings ready to mix at my desk at work. Noone noticed.

@@BeautifullyCreated1982 ... have you had your surgery yet? Seems like it's getting pretty close.

And @ ... yeah, you should definitely not have any therapy.

I came to the board excited about surgery 3/9 until I read this. I have a 10 day pre op diet of 3 Bariatric Advantage shakes a day, 700-900 calories and Water each day. I had a few days I wasn't perfect. But I weighed myself today and have lost 16 pounds in 9 days. I'm good with that. I may not have been perfect but would not use that as a reason to delay surgery. And I wouldn't take advice off the internet of whether or not I should reschedule a surgery. While yes there is ownership over this pre op plan but in reality we have very different plans. My plan is not tailor made to me it comes from a preprinted manual. The doctor does it for everyone. Following a pre op diet exactly may be an indicator for future success but I don't believe that. I know what I'm going to need to do and realize that this surgery is a tool to that end which for me is what I need. My point is I think people need to be careful dispensing and listening to medical advice on the internet.

I was told by my surgeon if the pre opt diet was not followed they know if it wasn't. If the liver is still enlarged they will not proceed forward with the surgery. He said he will stop and not finish. Is it worth it to cheat on pre op?

Is not going to be on till March 30th. it had to be put off because I struggled so much with following the pre op diet in the whole preparatory program. however the good news is that I stuck to a two week pre op diet or liquid diet on my own and lost 14 pounds so I should be good to go on March 30th to have surgery, and I'll be doing another liquid 7 day liquid diet starting March 23rd

That's too bad that they postponed your date. I don't know how everyone did the 2 week liquids. We are the ones that could never stick to a diet to begin with. I'm so thankful that my surgeon didn't require a pre-op liquid diet

i am sorry, but....

happy that your surgery is being delaying for an additional 3 weeks :blink:

good for you on telling surgeon your concerns/problems pre-op :)

honesty is always good :)

he realized you needed to be more prepared for the surgery (mentally)

IMO surgeon was "correctly" hard on you (postponing WLS)

surgeon sounds like a keeper to me :)

you realized you must work hard and follow all the rules

if you can't do it in pre-op - PO will be quite an issue

there are people that don't do well pre-op and are successful - but that doesn't mean its right

you must continue this new lifestyle for the rest of your healthier, happier, longer life :)

you work with the sleeve - and it will work with/for you :)

14 lbs down pre-op

more pre-op to come

starting process again!!

that'll show you!! :lol:

actually it will!!!

i'm sure you'll be more committed to following plan

than when you were 1rst wrote this February 15th

got confidence in you kiddoo

good, good, good luck these next 3 weeks :)

happy surgery

speedy recovery

      I met with my surgeon on Friday.. I've completed all my tests and all my nutrition meetings as well as meeting the weight loss requirements for my insurance. We are officially submitting to insurance for approval and I was given a surgery date of January 16th 2020 (13 days before my birthday!) Fingers crossed all goes through

      Ok, now im getting old...my body gets me up at my normal 5am dog walk even when it's the weekend, vacation, and most importantly when I'm sick. So now that I have more energy, my body wants to make sure I suffer even longer during the day when I have a cold! Damn being healthy again! (:D)

      At my Primary Physician appt, the Doc said you know you lost a whole person. When you started seeing me you were 265lbs now you're 148lbs.
      She's right... I lost the fun me 😂 Joking Joking Joking. It's amazing who keeps track when you don't like insurance and browsers feeds
