I was on a 10 day liquid diet. 4 Protein Shakes a day and Clear Liquids only. I lost 11lbs in 10 days. It did not even bother me after day 4. I drank a lot of good chicken broth because I got so sick of the sweet Protein Drinks.< /p>

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 found the liquid stage hard too but I found that the more liquid I drank and the busier I stayed the easier it got. I also chewed sugar free gum...

Stay busy. Clear food from your home if possible. I live with my boyfriend and he committed to the liquid only stage with me. We sent all our perishable food to my moms house and kept only approved food for our diet in the house everything else went into the freezer. If there's nothing available that you're not supposed to eat, then you can't it eat it.

On my lunch breaks at work I ran errands. At easter while everyone was eating i hid the eggs for the kids to hunt after dinner.

What should I pack for the hospital? My doctor said I will be in the hospital for 4-5 days. Is that right? Is just preparing me for worst case scenario?

My surgery was on a Monday afternoon and I was released from hospital the next afternoon. Back to work the following monday. Everyone is different and every surgeon is different.

My surgery date is March 23rd. My surgeon requires a two week pre-op diet which consists of four Protein drinks daily and only clear liquids. Well I have three days till I start and let me just say I am eating anything and everything I can. I'm so excited for this life changing surgery and I'm scared. I know I will be able to eat things I want in moderation again someday. I just feel like this is the time to eat whatever guilt free! Anyone else experiencing this "last supper syndrome" ?

I went to every restaurant and had all of my favourite foods without guilt. I had surgery on April 2nd and right now am craving chips and salsa from lone star. are you from Canada?

I just went to a consultation and have started the psych eval, nutritionist, etc and I'm already having the last supper syndrome! I know once I have the surgery there are things I can never eat again, I'm like an addict, a little and I'm hooked again. I can't eat sweets or I'll eat them again to the point I will gain weight. I know I won't be able to eat much after surgery and my appetite won't be good after the surgery so that is my chance to change my eating habits. Some things I am just going to have to give up forever or I'll be eating them again to much!

      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.
