Having trouble reaching 800 calories on clear liquids only



Recommended Posts

I know this sounds crazy but I just started the clear liquid phase of my pre op diet and am on Clear Liquids until my surgery on October 17. I am so sick of liquids, and at this point I genuinely don’t know how I’m supposed to reach 800 calories on clear liquids only. It’s not that I’m not hungry (man I would kill for a single piece of buttered sourdough toast), but I feel bloated (hormone related) and just exhausted of these liquids to the point where I don’t even want to eat more Soup broth. Has anyone else had these issues?

Why do you need to be at 800 cals? Is that the goal you were told to always meet? Ask your team for advice on how to reach it, if they set it.

I agree, that seems unrealistic, and unnecessary on Clear Liquids.

800 calories on clear liquids is impossible?! There's no calories in pretty much any of that stuff.

I am on Protein Shakes and one frozen meal and supposed to be around 800ish calories. And that's with actual food.

      What's your experience w/the Dumping Syndrome?
      How long did it last?
      How did you cope w/it?
      Has the dumping syndrome gotten worse each time more as the years go by?
       
      I had the Gastric Bypass in 7/2015. The last couple of times i got the Dumping Syndrome twice last year, and once this year have been the worst. My last one was on Easter Sunday. I felt Fatigue, nauseous, gagging, shortness of breath, laid down holding my tummy, wanting to cry, feeling desperate, it got to a point where i basically was unconscious. Is it normal to fall asleep without no warning and waking up out of nowhere to "wth happened, how long was i out for"? It's gotten scary, and don't know if this is part of the dumping syndrome. I've had more times but not as bad as the last couple of times. 😢

      When I get my surgery and lose weight I might write a book about my weight loss surgery so I can help anyone who started at my weight, or who think about getting the surgery.
