Needing to loose 10 pounds


32 posts in this topic

I'm pre-op and need to loose 10 pounds. My surgery should be within the next month or two and I'm freaking out they won't do the surgery. What would be the best way to loose this. I need HELP!!

While I'm reluctant to suggest another diet plan, the steak & eggs diet will induce rapid weight loss (a.k.a. fat loss) while ensuring you feel full and satisfied.

My suggestion is to cut out things you won't be having in the future anyway--soda, chips, etc. I'm assuming you'll have a pre-op diet, either all liquid or mostly liquid with one lean meal--assume you'll lose at least some of the weight then. Break it down into smaller goals--a pound or two a week. If you make progress and can show you've put in the effort, your chances of being approved for the surgery will be good. But at least part of the theory is that if you can't lose a bit of weight now, you're not ready for the post-surgical diet changes (and another part is the need to shrink your liver for the operation itself).

Good luck!

Did your doctor/nutritionist give you a food plan to follow? It seems that's the way to go...if not, I always get the best results with low carb, lean Protein and lots of veggies.

Eat less, move more... pretty simple.

If it was really pretty simple, we wouldn't need to have our stomachs surgically removed. ;-)

@DoodleLover203 it is that simple, we just don't have the discipline for it. Thus the knife wounds in our stomachs.

I also heard Meth is a great dietetic... (kidding obviously)

Well I have a very bad knee. I can't do a lot because my knee keeps popping outta place. That's the reason my knee doctor suggested I have this surgery to get some weight off my knees.
