Did anyone loose weight on their pre-op diet



Recommended Posts

Lost 30 lbs on 2 week preop liquid diet. My Doc uses only Bariatric Advantage (nasty, I refer to as Franken-Shakes). I could only do 3 a day.

But great way to jump start weight loss.

When I had my surgery 15 years ago, the only shakes my doc used were 70 calorie HMR shakes with a huge Vitamin pill. It tasted very badly and the pill was nasty and made the shake in the am very gritty and vitaminnnnnny! Yuk!!!! There are so many more available now, thank God! I use Isopure zero carb, GNC pro performance whey isolate 28, and SEI Nutritionals Max Protein powder. If you use Torani s/f flavored syrups and ice you can make them taste great! Good luck all you new ops!!! ️ Congratulations on starting your new life!

No, they take your weight at the time of application and consultation and use that. The pre-op weight loss is to help you form a sense of commitment and serious intention, to shrink your liver to make surgery easier and to help jump start your weight loss journey! Good luck! We're rooting for you!????????????????????

I've only lost 5 lbs so far and my surgery is on Wednesday (in 4 days). That loss was in the first week, and I haven't lost anything since then. I started at 221 in April, then was at 213 at the start of my preop. I went to 208 lbs, then back up to 210, then down to 208 again. Not sure whats happening. I am allowed two shakes and one meal per day, consisting of a salad/vegies and fish or chicken. I am drinking a lot of Water. I am going to step up my exercise today. Maybe that will help...

I don't have a certain amount I am supposed to lose, just the pre-op diet restrictions. I am allowed to have a light Breakfast the day before surgery, then only clear fluids after that.

Its frustrating when I read about others losing 10-30 lbs, although I know that many are on shakes/water only. But, I still see others are losing a lot more than me and they are on a very similar diet.

To make sugar-free pudding, you still need milk, which does have needed Protein, but also some calories of its own. I have tried making it with almond milk and just don't get acceptable results. I have not tried soy milk or Water.

Yeah sugar free pudding was not allowed. Just sugar free Jello. They were very clear about that.

DH is currently finishing week 1 of his 2 week pre-op diet. He's on Protein drinks, sf Jello, broth, and a small amount of chicken or fish daily. He's down almost 10 pounds! I start my pre-op diet in 3 weeks. I have a feeling that sf Jello will be my best friend as I'm not to thrilled with the taste of the Protein shakes.

Also I thought u can't use a straw after surgery because of the air put into the stomach. I'm so anxious for this surgery and the start of my new life.
