Why is my pre-op diet so much more strict than others'?



Recommended Posts

I started my pre-op diet today, which consists of light Protein Shakes, 2 cups of vegetables, 2 tbsp. fat free dressing, sugar free Jello, gum, and popsicles, low sodium broth, and coffee or tea with skim milk and Splenda. I feel like this is a lot more strict than others' diets. I've heard of many being able to eat lean meats and fish and fruit. Any idea why this is?

If I add 3 oz of lean Protein do you think I'd screw up my surgery?

Sounds exactly like my pre-op diet... just stick with it, it's only for a couple weeks.

Mine is 2 shakes a day, one meal with 1tbsp olive oil or sf dressing veggies and 6 oz of Protein. It is 3 weeks long. At first really hard but now it's nothing to me.

Nope.....it's not.

I'm in total agreement with @@rking

I'd have done dog tricks if I'd been allowed some steamed broccoli, mushrooms and other type vegetables.

Fetch.......roll over.......bark......you name it.

So far it hasn't been bad. The Protein Shakes fill me so I don't really feel hungry. I woke up with a bad headache this morning so hopefully that stops. Thanks for the feedback everyone! I'll hang in there :)

Mine will be the same as this.

I've been drinking Isopure Protein Water, and honestly, it really helps with appetite.

Now that I'm on day 11, it's a walk in the park. I don't even think about it anymore. It's just what I do.

      I hit my stall ALREADY 🤷🏽‍♀️ been at 300 for almost a week. I’m not worried about it though, because I know that my body is healing. I’m not in a rush, I loss 30 pounds since surgery which was 3 weeks ago. I’m just going with the flow and staying positive. 😁

        It's very common. Give your body a chance to "catch up" with its new reality and the weight loss will start again. Hang in there, I know it can be frustrating!

      First Orangetheory class back after surgery! #347 for me. Determined to take things easy- especially those ab exercises. Looking forward to hitting #350 this week.

      I loss 19 pounds my first 7 days post op 🙌🏽 (Water weight or real weight.. weight is weight to me.. I’ll take it lol) I make sure I keep my water with me 24.7 and I walk every chance I get. I cook dinner for my kids with no problems. I have zero cravings!  By next week I should be in the 200’s. Haven’t been there since high school 🥲

        I had my surgery 11/17 and hit 299 this morning! :) Rooting for you!

      Well, starting day 2 after surgery. Felling hunger pains again this morning and nausea, no vomiting. I think the hunger pains are coming from my stomach and not my pouch. Think I will call their hotline and speak with them about it. It is not terribly bad but it is uncomfortable. I do not regret getting the surgery though. I expected some discomfort right after, I just didn't expect the hunger pains.
