I think you'll find a lot of variation - and some people aren't required to do a pre-op diet at all! I had to do two weeks of just Protein shakes (I think 4-5 a day) plus unlimited no- (or very low) calorie Clear Liquids. Water, Crystal Light, broth, sugar free popsicles, sugar free Jello

Yes, I think that it will definitely vary from person to person, because some people's pre-op diet consists of liquids only, some are allowed to eat food.

On my 2 week pre-op diet, I was allowed to eat food. I had to have smaller portions of everything that I ate, no starches at all, only chicken or fish and it was always a smaller portion (2-3 oz). No fats and also had to wean myself off of caffeine and carbonation.

I usually wound up doing fat free/sugar free oatmeal for Breakfast, a salad for lunch with chicken on it (about 1 cup salad) and 2-3 oz chicken. A no-fat Salad Dressing. For dinner I usually did a 2-3 oz fish or chicken portion, with 1 cup of cooked non-starchy vegetables. I was also allowed a little bit of fruit.< /p>

So that was my 2 week pre op diet. But then the day before surgery, it was a clear liquid diet only.

As was said before everyone's Surgeon has their own guidelines to follow. My Preop diet was 2 weeks of Protein drinks and my Postop was 4 weeks of Protein Drinks.

When I had my band I had to follow the sugar busters plan. It was a high Protein low carb diet but food was allowed. Now that I'm getting ready for a revision to a DS I'm on one week of two shakes a day, two snack bars a day, and one lean Protein with veggies meal per day. Next week is five shakes per day. Total of two week pre-op diet.

I'm on my pre-op diet and I can have shakes and one small meal a day of lean Protein and veggies. Today I had grilled chicken on a salad with salsa as my dressing. Yesterday I had chicken meatballs with roasted peppers and onions, let's see I also did a taco Soup with ground turkey, tomatoes, onions and Beans. Basically I have taken my typical dinners and reduced the portions and cut out the carbs and fats as much as I can. Good luck with your last week

      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
