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.

      Ok I had surgery on Jan 27 2020 so I am 3 weeks out and have lost 32 lbs  I wish I had this done sooner. Now just trying to figure out different things to eat so I am not eating the same thing over and over. I did order some stuff today from the Bariatric Store and that stuff should be here in time for my next phase. I have a goal of 50 lbs by the first of June hope that is attainable. Good luck to every one on this journey

      So went to my surgeon today for one month follow-up. Last time I was there he wanted me to put on 4kgs but oops I’ve lost another 2kgs. Told him it was intended, was trying to maintain, upped my food intake, was stable for almost 3 weeks but last weekend broke it.
      Mum turned 80. Drinks at neighbours, a couple of crackers & dip, home late, no dinner. Out all morning, followed by celebratory family lunch, home late, no dinner. Whole dietary routine out the window. Did have a protein bar & tuna frittata muffin in between but didn’t eat much at all those two days.
      What dumbfounded me was he was ok with it. I told him I didn’t want to put on his 4kg because of the weight gain many experience in the 12+months in maintenance. He agreed with me. What the??? Invasion of the body snatchers??? Totally opposite position from last month. 
      He was also ok with my stopping my multivitamins. Agreed with my thinking that is better to feel ok & eat then be nauseated & not eat. He’ll just monitor my bloods to ensure no problems which is what they do anyway.
      Not complaining.

      Just came from my GPs office. He would want me upping to 1500kcals a day. Have no idea on how I'm gonna do this - a year ago it would been an issue to come _down_ to 1500 kcals 😂
