Minimal loss on pre-op diet!



Recommended Posts

People I'm having a little panic attack. I started the mostly liquid diet a week ago and I've only lost a couple of pounds.

The month prior I was doing 1000 calories, 65-75 grams of Protein, 100 grams of carbs and 30 grams of fat. That month I lost 20 pounds.

I know I'm getting enough protein, maybe 30 grams of carbs and less than 5 grams of fat, and really reaching only 600/ 700 calories a day.

Maybe I've hit some plateau, but surgery is on Monday, 3/11, and I'm afraid the surgeon is going to say you haven't lost enough weight.

Has anyone else experienced this?

If you weren't given a specific amount to loose like 5% or 10% in my case, you shouldn't have anything to worry about.

I hope you are right. I'm waiting to hear from the Dr. office to see if there will be a problem.

I only lost about three pounds on the pre-op liquid diet, and they did my surgery without question. Then again, this might be one of those surgeon-by-surgeon things. Keep us posted!

Update, got a call back from the Dr. office. They'd be happy if I lost 5, but as long as I've lost since I started the process (I have - 30 pounds), I am just fine!

Phew! Bullet dodged.

And forward March resolutely towards surgery, because your day of Glory is coming and I am very excited for you. Less than a week, these last few do move fast, but you're ready , steady, forward now!

        I haven't pooped in a weed and I'd love a 4 pound poo right now lol

      2. ms.sss

        Lol, yeah, I've been known to drop 3-ish lbs after a good (and long awaited) poop.

        .....or even after a moderate to severe dumping episode. yikes.
