Pre-Op Liquid Diet Weight Loss



Recommended Posts

Ok everyone- I am doing a 3-week Pre-Op liquid diet followed by a 1 day Clear Liquids the day before surgery. So far I am down 14 lbs (still 11 days till before surgery).

What was your Pre-Op weight loss like?

Thank you so much! I am praying I can shed at least 5 more in the next 10 days!

I didn't lose anything, as we didn't have a pre-op diet (other than the day before thing) and I just kept on with the basic weight maintenance life that I had been on before.

A word of caution, though - we will typically experience a big loss of primarily Water weight when we first start a major caloric deficit program and then things slow down to a more sustainable rate as we get into drawing from our stored fat. So, if you see others reporting big number losses the first couple of weeks after surgery and you seem to be lagging that, just remember that you already had your big initial drop before surgery, and you are just running a little ahead of the others.

Good luck,

I will keep this in mind as I make it past this revisional surgery. BTW--- You have done amazing with your weight loss :) . Way to go.
