My surgery is june 29th and will be starting my liquid diet soon, any recommendations of how i can plan out my day? I work in an office environment if that makes a difference. Any suggestions are appreciated!

I work in a call center and started it on Thursday, honestly it's been easier at work than at home :blush:

Spread them out evenly and drink it even if you aren't hungry because I've noticed that if I wait then the one 11oz shake doesn't put a dent in my hanger lol

Did they recommend a number of shakes per day? My plan is up to 5 shakes a day plus Water and broth. So I think I’ll be doing a shake for Breakfast, lunch, snack, dinner, before bed snack. And then other liquids throughout the day.

I was told to drink 5 Protein Shakes a day which was a bit much for me so I usually drank 3. Breakfast, lunch and dinner. In between If I got hungry I would sugar free popsicles

Start drinking a lot of Water, sip all day to get into the habit for post op.

Try and stick to your plan, but don’t derail all your progress if you slip.

From what I understand my doctors have 2 different ones. 1 is all liquid, the other is a shake for breakfsst. Protein Bar for lunch, 3 oz lean Protein, 1 cup veggies and a small piece of fruit for dinner. broth and sf Jello and popcicles if needed. Obviously im hoping to qualify for the second option...lol

Scheduled for July 21, started pre-op diet the 11th, 3 shakes and a light dinner but I’ve been on vacation since the 7th 🙄 so trying to be as good as possible with a shake for breakfast everyday and not going as nuts with food as usually would have but REALLY nervous what I’ll find when I get home Sat and weigh in for first time in 10 days. If I’ve gained any I’ll have just 3.5 days to lose it before dr appt on the 20th. I’ll probably be doing the 5 shake a day liquid diet others are on and saying a lot of prayers!
