Trouble staying on my pre-op diet



Recommended Posts

I can’t seem to stay on my low calorie pre op diet. It is soo restrictive in calories. Has anyone else had this problem. My pre op diet is super low calories (under 1000 calories) for two weeks and liquid the day before.

I think just cutting back to a 1000 calorie diet sounds harder than the 2 week liquid pre op I was made to do (I'm kinda all or nothing). Your diet seems like it would need a lot of will power while limiting real food intake. What kept me on point pre op was the fear of doing anything to mess up my surgery from happening. Do your best, wish I had some tips for you, but I would be struggling just like you. Just know that after surgery you'll be lucky to take in 600 cal a day, that includes Protein Shakes. Something to look forward to. Stay strong, you can do this.

I did a Protein Shake for Breakfast and a Lean Cuisine meal for lunch and dinner for a week pre-op. That's what my surgeon asked us to do. It was unpleasant but not terrible.

The pre-op diet is a tough one. I remember the day before my weigh-in...I had 2 more pounds to lose. So I just filled my tummy with Crystal Light drinks - no food. Yep, those 2 pounds were gone, just in time to qualify for surgery.

It's just two weeks - it'll pass soon enough.

Bite the bullet and stick to it - it'll make your liver pliable and your surgery safer.

My sleeve is in 3 months, and i asked my surgeon to give me a pre op Liquid menu so that i can see if i can follow it n loose a couple of Lbs before surgery. What he told me was that i donot need a pre op Liq. diet at all. just to stay away from fats and carbs. He did not limit my calories either.

I did a pre-op diet. It was not easy, but it's much easier than the first week after surgery. Try to eat more veggies if you can. I'm on day 6 of my clear liquid diet and I didn't miss food till last night. You'll do it! Good luck!

P.S. I wasn't perfect, but did what I could.

      Ok, now im getting old...my body gets me up at my normal 5am dog walk even when it's the weekend, vacation, and most importantly when I'm sick. So now that I have more energy, my body wants to make sure I suffer even longer during the day when I have a cold! Damn being healthy again! (:D)

      At my Primary Physician appt, the Doc said you know you lost a whole person. When you started seeing me you were 265lbs now you're 148lbs.
      She's right... I lost the fun me 😂 Joking Joking Joking. It's amazing who keeps track when you don't like insurance and browsers feeds

      Me: Hey Siri, Is it raining outside? (for my morning walks with the dogs)
      Siri: I don't think it's raining at the moment.
      Wet Dogs: Then why are we wet? This damn Siri person is more stupid than we are.
