4 Week Liquid Diet - Need Encouragement!



Recommended Posts

Howdy,

I’m scheduled for surgery on 1/30/19 and am on day 9 of my 4 week liquid diet. The diet consists of 4 Bariatric Advantage shakes, 2 Bariatric Advantage Protein Bars, and either a small banana or 1 cup of skim milk per day. It’s been hard, but I’ve stuck to it and found I’m not hungry or hangry like I was the first 4-5 days. I lost 14lbs in the first week, yay!

However, both yesterday and today I’ve gained a pound back. I’ve been told it could be Water weight or a number of things, but it is so dang frustrating! Has anyone else encountered this?

To try and help myself from going crazy I’ve decided to stop weighing myself everyday. But I’m worried if I gain anymore I’m going to mentally snap and go binge on nachos!

Any advice, support, or encouragement would be greatly appreciated!!

4 shakes , 2 bars and a banana that sounds like quite a generous allowance. If you have got through the first 9 days then the rest should be easy. Just keep that endgoal in sight
