Mine wouldn't allow starchy vegetable including peas which I would not have considered starchy . Salads,1 meal at or below 300 calories, loved Lean Cuisine and it's cousins, otherwise. fluids , limited and approved fruits and Protein Shakes. Had my surgery in Columbus Ohio, the home of Abbott Labs so given a gangoozle of Ensure coupons,hey it helps when you're on a Social Security limited budget, really does! I lost 15 pounds on my 1 month Liver- shrinking diet, took my Hepatic Organ from NASH to smooth, sleek and healthy like a Baby calf, so worth the restrictions for the Greater good. And since he Didn't have to use the Industrial- sized liver retractor I didn't have the tummy pain many suffer! And A win- win for all concerned.

Holy Cow. I am only allowed: Clear Liquids, Protein Shakes, raw veggies and Tomato Soup. Mine is 2 weeks pre op. Just finished day 3. Not even steamed veggies..which I don't understand. Crazy how they vary so much with length, meats, small meals etc.

      So my surgery anniversary date is on the 24th of this month, but I had my 1-year follow up early with my surgeon this morning (I have another 1-year followup at the hospital on Monday to get my bloodwork and labs done).
      Anyhoo...my surgeon was very pleased with my results (and so where the office staff apparently, because 3 of the front desk ladies came by my exam room to give me props/high fives/generally gawk at me).
      But get this: he asked if I would be willing to come in for a future photoshoot so that I could be on a poster! And I was all, ummmm....no thanks, LOL.

      Today was a really tough day and I turned to food (and a watered down glass of wine). The interesting part was that I felt REALLY full after eating half my go to cheat snack, tortilla chips with cheese. So the GBP is doing its job!

      The only way I can tell that I'm losing weight is from the scale and my clothes "getting bigger".
