Depends on what you are allowed on your liquid diet. I was allowed vegetables so I am eating a lot. I am trying to switch up the Protein Shakes so I'll have Protein popsicles and hot chocolate shakes, for instance. If I get too hungry, I drink Water and look at before/afters. Keep busy, sleep a lot and take it one day at a time. I have 5 left to go ! You got this :)

Hey guys!

June 28th here! I’m starting to freak myself out! Pre op diet begins on June 21st.

I haven’t told anyone I’ll be having this done besides my boyfriend. Work doesn’t even know. They just think I’ll be out of town for awhile. I haven’t told a soul because I don’t want to hear any backlash.

My preop diet has been a bit of a disaster. My surgery is on Monday @1pm. So all Protein Shakes and Protein Water for the weekend. I’m looking forward to being on the other side when I’m all tooled up

Mine is June 7th. I have been doing low carb high Protein mod fat diet. I was not required to do anything other than maintain carbs under 50 best I can for ten days. Today I will start liquid. And I think I will avoid coffee also. I had gained 10 pounds a month ago. Eating what I wanted. I have not had carb cravings like thought. I have lost probably 5 pounds n inches. Now I am nervous.

Hi everyone I have surgery on the 27 of this month. Getting ready to start my pre op diet in 6 days, the last 3 days is a liquid diet not looking forward to that. Any tips would be great. Hope everyone is well and happy.

Hello. I’m in Australia so I went to the local private hospital. It’s been good so far, I was well hydrated before the procedure and have been on drips since. I’m going home tonight. My surgeon likes to keep people a few days post to up your fluids before they send you home.

If I keep drinking as well as I have been I will be good, now the focus is Protein. I’m one of the lucky ones, I can still drink, and enjoy, Water.

My weight gain was due to bad food choices, overeating and neglecting my health. My nutritionist has told me to stay on liquids for another week and then purée/soft for 4 weeks. I’ve been told to stick to 1/2 cup per meal of food rich in protein.

      RE: the running/training
      Honestly it started with me just doing laps around the kitchen that first post-op week.
      In a week, I graduated to walking up and down my street, then to walking around the block every day.
      The distance increased, then the speed.
      Then I started running little spurts during my walks, then to alternating 1km runs with 1km walks.
      And now I can do a continuous 10k (which I totally did for the first time this morning...so full of myself about it today, it’s disgusting.)
      Just do something everyday and slowly increase speed and duration, next thing you know you’ll be one of those odd “running people” (who I never understood pre-op, but now totally get, lol)

        Happy Sunday! I like weird people. Normal people are boring! :) I began following you and wanted to know if there are any other members you would recommend? My surgery is 8/29/19 and I want to learn as much as possible. Have a great day and thanks so much for the website.
