1 week to go and feeling slightly lost



Recommended Posts

So I have one week to go until my revision from Band to RNY. I have been toldnot to do a preop diet but just to stick to clean eating!!

I am extremely happy about that and could have kissed the NUT when she told me that as I remember how awful the preop was before my band. But do you know how confusing clean eating is?

Yes I know I need to steer away from processed foods and added sugars but apart from that there are so many different variations. I haven’t been told no carbs but I am trying to keep those to a minimum ( except veg). I’ve also given up alcohol. Hopefully that is enough!

Sounds pretty good - I'd go completely keto (no sugar, carbs) a couple of days before the surgery because depleting the liver of sugar stores is what makes it flexible and easier for the surgeon. But other than that sounds good. Good luck hon!!

I always think of clean eating as eating things that don't have ingredients but that ARE ingredients. Lean meats, fruits and veggies, milk and unprocessed *real* cheeses. Things you find on the perimeter of the grocery store and not in the aisles.

I also had no pre op diet, but your girl did one anyways!!!! I needed a jump-start, a transition and I felt a little more accomplished (but... I was not a revision)

Countdown time!!!!

Yay!!!!🎉🎉🎉

Congrats on your surgery. It will be here before you know it!! Wooot!!

So clean eating...I'd TOTALLY drop all white things (sugar, rice, potatoes, Pasta, carby breads) and caffeine/diet drinks. I would rather have a week of misery now before I deal with pain than doing it all at the same time. I'd do keto/low carb. I probably would have started that 3 weeks ago, but you can still make a difference in 1 week.

Good luck girl!!!
