Liquid dirt



Recommended Posts

Didn't your doc give you a plan in advance with a list of what you can and cannot have? We all get told different things and doctors have their own way of doing things. Some were allowed lean meats, others (like myself) were not. liquids diets generally mean broth, speciality bariatric/protein Soups, shakes, and maybe things like Jello. The liquid diet isn't going to be tons of fun no matter how you cut it. It's a short bit of suffering for a lot of long term good.

Main thing is that you should be getting a solid answer from your clinic and not this website. Go with what your doc tells you to do.

I got a very small list Jello, broth, shakes and of course Water and tea. But I was just looking for others who were on liquids only! I stated it’s liquids only

Does anyone have any tricks or tips for a 10 day pre-op liquid only diet.

I’m so confused where to even start besides broth and shakes!

Thanks in advance!

Premier Protein shakes! Best price at costco & Orgain powder on sale at Costco right now. Garden of Life plant based Protein is delicious. liquid diet means liquid. DRINK UP MY FRIEND! No cheating!

Yes, I can read. There's only so much you can do with liquids...lol. Honestly outside of getting some different flavors of jell-o, broth, popsicles, drinks like no calorie Powerade or Propel, and Protein Shakes there's not much else you can do. Comes down to just having to make the best of it and tough it out. The first few days can be tough, but after the third or fourth day you kind of settle into it and just ride it out.

I had switched to Decaf coffee a few weeks before my liquid diet so I would have that with the caramel premiere Protein as a Creamer. There are also ways you can freeze the Protein Shakes like ice cream. My doc had a Protein Bar that I could eat once a day. I would also chew on tangerines and spit out the flesh. To me by the 4th day it’s was pretty easygoing

I am at day 7 of 14 of the liquid diet and my surgery is scheduled for 1st March. So far so good. I had been having a Protein Shake for breakfast and lunch and a regular meal often with seconds and (zero snacking) for the past 6 months and so far the liquid diet has been pretty easy. My strategy, which I expect is not for everyone was really effective and I am down 93lb since last April.

The only difference I am doing for the liquid diet is I have replaced dinner with a creamy Soup. My NUT suggested Pacific or Imagine Brand low fat Soups. The Pacific Organic Creamy Tomato and Roasted Pepper and Tomato are pretty good. They are about 100 calories per cup.

      OMG! I dreamt of cake!!
      As of late, my dreams have been food obsessed. Last night I dreamed of gorging on good old American sheet cake with chocolate frosting. There was white frosting as well. Good thing we can't get that in Sweden! I just hope that I haven't become too engrossed in food. BUT they are only dreams after all.

        That's wonderful! I have trouble sitting still in the movies now. (I even fidgeted through the last John Wick, and it was awesome) I can't imagine sitting still this soon after surgery. More power to ya! Have fun!

        It will be interesting to watch as this theory develops. Thanks for posting!

      Feel like it's time for a status update, I haven't been on here regularly in a while and I need to keep my mindset focused on my goals.
      I haven't weighed myself in ~ 3 weeks.  I think I'm becoming the opposite of "obsessive" about tracking my progress and it could cause me some issues.  The good thing is that there have still been quite a number of NSV's happening that is telling me that I'm still progressing without knowing what the scale says.
      First one is that a belt I bought about 5 weeks ago because all my other belts were too big is also on the last hole so I'll have to buy yet another belt again.  second, I bought new jeans about a month ago and I have a lot more slack in the waist than I did when I purchased them.  I also boarded a plane and had about 8 inches of slack in the belt.  Finally, I hit my goal last week of being able to ride go-carts with my kids.  The last time I tried about 4 years ago, I had to leave because I couldn't fit in the harness.  This was sweet victory and I showed those two how it was done on the race course!!  😈

      I just looked through all my old pants after my pre-op pants started getting to big. Keep in mind that I wear men's pants (usually cargos) because I am so tall 5'10"/5'11" ish. I also find that men's baggies tend to fit me better.
      I started out at a 44 in waist pant and quickly found that I was back down to my 42's. So even when thise got to be too big, I had to start pulling old clothes out of storage. After finding my 38's, I thought that these would not yet fit, but when I tried them on, they fit perfectly. I also found some older pants that now fit better than I remembered. What a relief! It's not like I can pop down to the store like I could do in the US and the styles here in Sweden are all skinnt jeans which I cant stand. I also found some 36's, but I'm not mentally ready to try those on yet. The biggest challenge will be buying women's clothing again.
