Am I just a giant baby?

This full liquid diet is horrible. I just feel hungry all the time. Today is day 5 and I went to Target and all of the sudden got flushed and sweat and dizzy and thought I was gonna faint. I just had a Protein Shake and broth and Powerade and I’m still hungry.

The nutritionist told me you lose your appetite after 4 days but that hasn’t happened to me.

I feel like I’m losing my mind.

Did the Powerade have sugar? What happened at Target sounds awful! I'm sorry. [emoji31] It does get better once you can eat yogurt and things of that thickness. Try and distract yourself, I guess, and hang in there!

Ah! I thought you were Post-op! Yes, the pre-op diet was really tough! I wasn't totally on liquids though. I had a Protein Shake for Breakfast and lunch, then something like steamed broccoli and chicken for dinner.

At least the pre-op diet is short, but oh so necessary, so please continue to follow it to the letter and good luck on your WLS.

For myself, that pre-op liquid diet was really the worst part of my whole journey so far. It sucks, but it does pass.

Stick with it and hang in there! You got this. :)

Thanks!! My dietician did say that most people consider it to be the hardest part of the whole thing as well. So good to know I’m not a complete baby.

Pre-Op I only had a day of liquid. Post op I had two weeks of Protein Shakes & Soup and I was nearly out of my mind. It's SO MUCH better on real food. I was hungry that first two weeks. Hungry & annoyed. Once real food was added, the hunger is sooooo much easier to control.

The pre-op is by far the worst. But take comfort from knowing you are doing a big part of your carb withdrawal now rather than after your operation! Score!! Try adding a cup of full sodium bouillon to your day if you are feeling extra hungry or faint/headachy/flu-ish. It passes quickly. The 2nd week I think is easier physically, but a lot of us have insulin reactions to the Protein Drinks. Hang in there. You can do it.
