Mine is the 27th.

I have a question for you all. I was thinking of starting my pre-op VLCD diet on the 1st, but really hate those Meal Replacement shakes. The sweetener in them gives me diarea and my face breaks out. Do you think it work it/be able to plan a pre-op diet with normal food? Something like taking Multivitamins, breakfast: protein/smoothie, lunch: weight watchers Soup or modifast soup, supper: chicken breast/salmon and veg (no starchy one). I may even have enough calories to put in a Protein pudding snack for the evening or Protein Shake.

I've been lucky enough to find a Protein Powder that has no sugar added and free from sweetner. It has only slightly more calories (40) than other ones and I really like the taste.

So what do you guys think? Eat like I described or suck it up from the 1st until the 27th? or just do VLCD for the two weeks that my surgeon has asked for? (Of course, I am going to ask for approval from my nutritionist, but dont want to bother them if im being stupid.)

You’re not being stupid, but if I were you I’d follow the exact diet given by your team. And certainly not for longer than they say, because it sucks (currently on my pre op). If you hate the taste, then there probably isn’t any harm in doing the Protein Shakes that you like, but make sure you have the same amount calorie wise. So yeah, if they told you to do liquid, do liquid. You can do it! :)

*quietly slips back into the forums* Apologies for my absence. Some stuff came up (not WLS related) that sent me into a bit of a funk and I didn't feel very much like chatting to anyone. I've tried to stay focused on my pre-op diet, with limited success.

But Thursday begins phase two of the diet... 5-6 glucerna shakes, and 200 calories of veg per day. Hopefully it will knock out the last three pounds I need to lose before surgery.

I hope everyone is doing well and not feeling too overwhelmed as your dates draw near.

Never had whataburger (don't have them here), but popcorn is my weakness and it's not on my pre-op diet at all. That hasn't stopped me from having some a couple of times in the last couple of weeks though. Thankfully the only popcorn we have left in our house is a package of microwave popcorn, which I find revolting.

Today is my last day on my hybrid diet. No more food funerals for me. Time to buckle down.

      I can now buy clothes in normal stores again. Admittedly the first time when I started trying on clothes, I really had to keep myself calm. Normally trying on clothes causes me to become SOOO depressed that it take weeks just to get over it. Now, I have to keep myself from not wanting to buy everything!

      Hi, congrats on your surgery!  Saw you went to Dr. Pleatman.  I've been between doing the Lap Band and sleeve.  I was suppose to have a consultation with Dr. Pleatman this month.  So far great experience with his office coordinator Carrie (sp?).   Feeling really scared and nervous about getting the sleeve.  If you can share...how was your experience with Dr. Pleatman's office and the surgery?   Thanks!
