Dr. Nowzaradan's Diet Pre Surgery?



Recommended Posts

I am totally into 600lb life featuring Dr. Nowzaradan so I was curious if anyone knows or has a copy of the diet plan he sends home with his patients after he sees them for the first time. He expects large weight loss, in a month or two so I am curious as to what the diet plan consists of.

If you do it right then you will have large weight losses right after surgery. Plus, the bigger you are the more weight you will lose. I lost over a 100 lbs in the first 6 months after my surgery. Now, I'm not even a full year out and have lost a total of 176 lbs.

The problem with the people on the show is that most of them do not follow the diet and just eat whatever they want. They show them eating crap they should not be eating after the surgery. So it's no shocker when they end up losing so very little. The past one I watched with "Betty Jo" was a joke. She was celebrating her success when it was obvious she was still dangerously obese and then got pregnant on top of it. Sad.

I don't have his specific diet and would love to see it, too.

Just from watching random shoes it sounds like he focuses on calories but requires a high Protein, no starches, very low calorie diet.

I haven't looked online to see if there is any more info.

Also, keep in mind that the first people on the show had surgery 10 years ago, so his program has hopefully changed over time. He still seems sort of old school.

I remember seeing it online somewhere because I was curious too lol. I would have to look it back up for specifics, but I know he has them on 1200 calorie diet with no snacking in between. And I believe 3 meals a day

      Today was a really tough day and I turned to food (and a watered down glass of wine). The interesting part was that I felt REALLY full after eating half my go to cheat snack, tortilla chips with cheese. So the GBP is doing its job!

      The only way I can tell that I'm losing weight is from the scale and my clothes "getting bigger".

      I can now buy clothes in normal stores again. Admittedly the first time when I started trying on clothes, I really had to keep myself calm. Normally trying on clothes causes me to become SOOO depressed that it take weeks just to get over it. Now, I have to keep myself from not wanting to buy everything!
