I am really struggling with this while liquid diet thing! I have to do it for 2 weeks and I barely made it through day 1!

Are there any tips and tricks that you all have tried that help get through this time!

Just stick with it. The first few days suck really badly. DO NOT CHEAT! Cheating just makes it worse in most cases. Just struggle through it and just keep reminding yourself of why you are doing this. IT IS WORTH IT!

Drink lots and lots of Water. I'm talking over 128oz a day. This will help limit the "thirsty" signals that confused for hunger. Stick to your diet sheet.

Just stay strong. After a few days it gets easier. Try to avoid any and all temptations if you don't think you have the will power to resist. You can do this!

If you are allowed sugar-free Jello - eat it without chewing very well. The lumps slide down into your stomach just fine, but they take a little longer to break down and can give you a bit of a "full" feeling, or at least not an "empy, echoing cavern" feeling. Good luck, this gets a bit easier over time as you develop some distance between yourself and food.

I'm on my fifth day and was skeptical when people say it gets better, but it really does! After three days it's not so bad and soon you'll be like "oh I'm almost halfway there"

sugar free popsicles helps me a ton

I can't believe I forgot the most important part! The thing that really helped me from an emotional breakdown is remembering to take it a day at a time. Focus on only what hurdles you have to face today. If you look at the mountain of the two weeks you will get overwhelmed.

Okay, I’ve only done two days of the liquid and then surgery got pushed back BUT I didn’t lose any weight. Not even Water weight which confused me. So I took measurements and I had lost an inch on my waist. It totally made me feel awesome! So take some measurements!
