So, I’m supposed to start my pre op diet on August 26th but I’m not going to lie.... I have been living my fat girl life and put on some weight. I wanted to start my pre op early, as in tomorrow. Maybe not as intense, but definitely start getting used to my Protein Shakes and smaller portions. Do you guys think that’s okay? I know the whole reason of the diet is to reduce the size of your liver, I don’t want that to affect it. What do y’all think?

Many people start it early to boost weight loss & get mentally prepared for surgery 🏆

Give it a try!

BUT

If its too restrictive and causes more harm than good (bingeing, anxiety, etc) then you may want to just stick to the plan/schedule that your Surgeon suggests

Good Luck💜

I’ve seen others mention starting earlier ... my dietician advised me not to do anything too intense because she wanted me as motivated as possible for the time she set (two weeks pre-op) have you asked your nutritionist or surgeon? great idea on wanting to kick start things .... i’m focusing on Water, Vitamins and exercise currently to get in better habits there. all the best to you
