In 5 days I start a 4 week liquid diet. I get 4 Protein Shakes a day and raw veggies only. I'm a little nervous but... mostly excited! Nervous because that's a long time of not eating a real meal... excited because I'm one step closer to surgery!

Any tips for the liquid diet? I'm a little scared that I'll cheat. What helped you during this stage?

I only had to do two weeks of the diet and my first 3 days was the hardest. It will most likely be the hardest for you too. However, after that hump, you get used to the diet.

A little trick I did was add vinegar to my veggies with some pepper to give it a little kick. It was like there was meat there lol.

I did a 2 week liquid diet. Strictly liquid. I lived on shakes, sugar free Jello, chicken and beef broth. First couple days were tough and i stayed closed up in my bedroom at dinner time and at work I told everyone not to come around me with food or ask me what I was doing at lunch. By the 2nd week it was a breeze. I even cooked dinner for my family a couple times. Good luck with your surgery. It’s been the best thing I have ever done for myself.

This may be a dumb question but what. temprature should you drink your shakes at? Should theynbe room temperature, chilled in the refrigerator, over ice or even half-frozen? . Should they be mixed with unsweetened yogurt or flavorings added? Please veterans give me your input or are clear fruit tasting Protein liquids better?

I drink mine out of the fridge. If I use a powder one I mix it and then add ice after. Only thing I add to mine is coffee in my vanilla or caramel to make a latte.

Protein Shakes are best when they are COOOOLD. You really want to stay away from adding any extra calories to those shakes, so yogurt isn't a great idea pre-op. For clear liquid Proteins, Isopure Zero Carb RTD are amazing. Again, best served ice cold. You can totally blend them into an thick shake using ice cubes, really ups the experience overall.

Also, Protein will cook if it gets too hot, so you can "curdle" it if you try to heat it up too hot.

Seasonings for the veggies will save you from boredom. Check with your surgeon of course, but pretty much any salt free seasoning is typically given the thumbs up. Don't be afraid to spice things up with some added flavor!

      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!
