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.

Might be too late, but I was allowed sugar free Jello, and they also suggestef Oikos Triple Zero yogurt, it had 15 grams Protein. Another is Unjury chicken broth protein mix.

      Ok...so keeping my daily weight updated on here is getting tedious due to the the daily 0-3 lbs fluctuations.  Soooo...I figure I'm just going to update every 1-2 weeks moving forward.

        Yeah, I kinda do it when I see a new low. Then it fluctuates up and down up and down until I finally see a new low. Mine went down to 131 on Saturday but is now back to 133, lol. So I won't log it till I see 131 for a second time.

        I do my daily weight graph in My Fitness Pal. Much easier and it keeps a cool graph!!

      2. ms.sss

        Me too (sort of). I gifted myself a fancy-shmancy smart scale back in January and it wirelessly updates the data to Apple Health in my phone, which in turn automatically updates MFP (among other apps I have). Very hands off on my part. Updating BP was the only manual weight updating I was doing, which has stopped being fun and instead become a job, now that the weight goes up and down so much.

      3. FluffyChix

        LOL the joys of maintenance! ;) NOT!

      4. sillykitty

        Like @FluffyChix I updated at every new low, consequently I'm now listed as my lowest weight. I should probably update it to where I've been maintaining, which is +3 lbs or so from that weight.

      5. FluffyChix

        Nah, keep your low and stay aware of your upper threshold so you don't hit it. :D ;)

      7 days post revision... I am wiped out! I forgot about the energy depletion stage 
      Logically I know there is some fat left for use... But not much
