Everyone told me that by day 4 the liquid diet would be easier. I did not believe them! I should have! I have not experienced true hunger today. I have been sipping on my Water in between shakes (I have had two so far today, will fit a third in before I leave work) with 2 cups of chicken broth, and one green Jello. I am literally amazed by how quickly our bodies can adapt to something!

If you are starting the pre-op diet today or in the near future my advice to you is stay hydrated! Have something (protein, jello, broth) every 2 hours. It makes a difference! I am following instruction from my surgeon and it truly is working.

Started my two week liquid diet today...I know the next two or three days will be tough, but mentally I'm just glad it's finally here!






Ditto!!! For some reason yesterday was a little mentally tough on me. Maybe Knowing I wouldn’t be having solid food for awhile LOL

Started my liver shrinking diet yesterday. solid food, low carb, 70+g Protein, lots of Water, and no more than 800 calories. My doc does this until the day before the surgery when it is one day of clear liquid diet.

August 26! Just got moved up a day! On my liquid diet as of yesterday, please tell me it gets easier lol. Any tips from people who have had their surgeries already this month?
I just finished day 8 today. Some time around day 6 it got a tiny bit easier bc I really started focusing on timing my shakes religiously. Once I was on a schedule I felt less hangry. It’s not easy, though.

Yesterday was my first day - I only managed two Protein Shakes, but I went back over my list from my doctor and saw that clear broth was allowed, so I had beef broth for dinner...ate it with a spoon from a bowl, and it felt like I was having dinner. I just "felt" better mentally after that!

I have a little bit of a headache this morning, but I'm powering through :) Have my pre-op with Dr Mehta this afternoon, and then I'll know what time on the 21st my surgery will be, and all the details!
