Pre op diet (liquid only)cheats: one night I had 6 crackers and a mushroom, another day I had a kids meal of chicken and broccoli from PF Chang’s. The final cheat was a slice of cauliflower crust pizza.

I lost 15 pounds on my pre op diet but my surgeon said my liver was still fatty. I am down 6 pounds since my surgery on Wednesday.

I guess my post op cheats have been eating soft foods (well cooked, flaky fish that literally melts in my mouth and scrambled eggs) when I havent been cleared to do so. So far stomach has handled it well but I know it’s bad. But the energy boost I get almost instantly from the Protein is hard to deny.

I went to Texas Roadhouse on day 2 and ate cheese fries, a 20 oz ribeye, mushrooms, onions, a baked potato, and a side salad with ranch. On the last day I ate Arby’s. I kept to the diet for most of it. I only lost 10 lbs. I’ve lost 40 lbs now and it was worth it.

I’ve been to lots of fancy corporate meals lately and brought back leftovers and tried to clear the remainer out of the fridge by eating them throughout today. This was a terrible idea and I knew it all along but it pained me to throw away really delicious fancy food

So I have eaten WAY, WAY too much and now I feel grim. Ugh.

I figured it would be nice to have a section where we could just confess to some of the potentially dumb things we've done, pre or post op. Just so others can see we are all human. I want this to be kept as civil as possible, where people can own up to things without anyone else chiming in with anything negative, we all know what we did wasn't "right" but I'm sure we ALL have done something we shouldn't have.

I'll start.

I cheated on my pre-op diet a few times. I also like to find loop holes and exploit the crap out of them. I drank beer for a week+ on my pre-op, because it didn't say I couldn't. I only stopped after I was forced to, because my wife asked my surgeon and of course they said "no"... boo. I also ate a whole slice of French meat Pie at my Dad's 60th birthday luncheon.

I cheated on my post-op diet/puree stage a bit too. I ate rice cakes and Protein chips or other veggie chips. Not a lot, but it happened. I "pureed" a steak and cheese sandwich once. I ate a few fried ravioli on my puree stage as well.

This past weekend, I had a beer. My wife and I took my parents out to dinner at a local casino, it's Restaurant week, so we found a good looking location and went out to eat, part of the deal was that you got a draft beer with your meal. So, I had a shipyard summer ale with my grilled chicken parm sandwich (only ended up eating 3 bites of the chicken and none of the bread).

I did all that thus far and nothing bad happened.
I understand the changes are to ensure we stick to our diets, but understanding that we are all human and WILL either slip up or just stray from our diets on purpose like I did. It's good to see that, it's possible to still live and be able to enjoy a few things we "shouldn't" without any negatives happening.

So, what's your WLS confession?
I and only 6 days out from surgery and I am really having a had time of resisting Chips and dip that my every so supportive husband brought into the house last night! HELP!!!!

This is the best post/thread ever! I am 12 days post-op (gastric sleeve) and tonight I blended some chicken tortilla Soup - even though I’m not on puréed foods yet. It was so good and it didn’t bother me at all - but I do feel a bit guilty!

I love this posting idea. I’m glad to know I’m not the only one who has broken the rules. So, after surgery I went too fast on stages and had CARBS, which I’m not supposed to eat for six months. I ended up back in the hospital and went back to clear liquids. Now I’m 6 weeks post op and over the past two weeks I have had a couple things I am not supposed to- 1 mozzarella stick, 2 buffalo chicken bites. My body seems to know that eating “off plan” is not good, as I generally throw up what I’ve eaten pretty quickly after. I had champagne on an international business flight- that went down with no problems. And when I am sick, I drink a little diet sprite. And I’ve eaten chocolate. Wow, that is actually quite a bit. And while I haven’t purposely cheated on taking them- I HATE the (what feels like) millions of Vitamins and pills I have to take everyday.

Not so much a cheat - Indulging while maintaining

Ordered the mile high mud pie at the ram. Only 1,593 calories for half a piece. Shared it with my hubby.

So glad this is here! I need to confess!!!! Lol I didn’t have a two week liquid diet pre surgery but I had to fast 24 hours before and nothing after 10 am that morning but liquids and nothing at all including Water after midnight. I can say I had a lot of food funerals the weeks before and I actually gained 4 lbs the day of weigh in for surgery :(. So the first week about day five or six when I could do clear liquids I consumed 2 32oz bluebell vanilla ice cream cups....& I got soooooooo sick! I did not and currently do not want ice cream anymore blah! You think I learned my lesson then, right? NOPE. So second week into full liquids...I found I could suck and chew down Doritos chips and spit it out...I just needed to chew something!! Then I ventured to find Cheetos white cheddar puffs and did the same thing except I learned I could swallow a little bit with no sickness. So glad to could get that off my chest. Now I’m on soft foods and I honestly have found three recipes on the Baritastic app that has helped me so far. I am using a kids spoon and measuring out two tablespoons of food at a time. TBH I am scared that I will fail at this keeping up with Protein and eating enough. Thanks for forum post :).

Pft this thread. Yeah... um... I gained 15lbs during my "food funerals" between my first appointment and the last one I had (June 6th - mid-September) and after finding out that I hadn't lost a single pound in 7 days on my pre-op diet, I went and got Burger King AND Taco Bell yesterday sooooo. Yeah. Actually feel pretty ashamed about it since I didn't even make it a solid 7 days without slipping up. I'm sure post-op NEXT WEEK will be peachy..

I absolutely love the thread.

My godson is staying w/ us for a week. I picked him up earlier today. He's 4 and of course he wanted McDonald's. I had 3-4 of his fries. They were heavenly!

I'm 2 1/2 weeks post-op and had no ill affects!
