Eating While On 2 week Liquid Diet



Recommended Posts

Hello, I'm scheduled for surgery on Monday, just wondering has anyone messed up on their 2 week liquid diet? . I came home to prepair for surgery and now I want blue crabs. I know my doctor told me I can have a Protein and veggie in place of dinner Protein Shake but are the blue crabs acceptable to eat with surgery on a few days away?..

I was supposed to have surgery Monday 8/12/19 also but mines being pushed back 1 week due to thyroid levels. I’m a little relieved because I haven’t been great on my pre-op diet. My drs require for my 1 meal low carb , low fat & high Protein & veggie . Crabs are protein just don’t add fats like butter etc to them.

crabs have some carbs in them I think. Go look them up on MFP. Don't over eat. It's not an "all you can eat" thing cuz that can also be bad on your liver. But I'd think that a small 3-4oz serving of picked crab + a low carb salad or veg would be ok.

I wasn't allowed to have any food at all (just zero (or nearly zero) calorie fluids, 4-5 Protein Shakes, a limited amount of broth and Tomato juice/V8, sugar free popsicles, and sugar free Jello. So....consider yourself lucky your surgeon allows a little food! I would think crab would be OK, but check if you're not sure.

Yeah, me either. But I was glad about that, cuz it made the post op period SO much easier! Cuz I was already adapted to only Protein Drinks and went through any carb withdrawal, or caffeine withdrawal BEFORE I also had to recover from the surgery!

It's fascinating how many variations there are of the "pre-op" diet :) And I agree, everyone should follow exactly what THEIR doctor tells them... my doc is on the "two weeks, 3-5 Protein Shakes and Clear Liquids ONLY" team...the nutritionist told us if there was ANY food in our stomach or intestines they would cancel the surgery because it isn't safe...that's kind of kept me on the straight and narrow these first few days when I'm SO hungry!!

Try to stick to the pre-op diet because you're going to be eating on a "diet" for the rest of your life and have to get used to a new way of thinking and eating.

Since you’ve been told you can have Protein and veggies for your dinner, looks like crab could be a good option if you stick to a small amount as others mentioned 💜 I was told I could have 3-4oz of a lean protein like chicken or fish. Phoning your doctor and checking with them might be best though

      Looks like I need people around to complete a 10K.  I tried to do one by myself this afternoon and I gave up at around the 7km mark.  Gonna try again on Friday, but I may have to look into joining a running club...

      My Surgeon asked me a question the other day and i didn't give it a lot of thought at the time.
      He asked "do you tell"
      we were talking about peoples reaction to seeing me since i lost such a large amount of me.
      I answered that i do tell if they ask but that it seems most everyone is afraid to mention it if they haven't seen me in a while or they decided they already know the answer so they don't need the truth from me (we all know those types)
      I have had exactly one family friend come right out and ask me how i lost so much weight this year and i told her i had Gastric Sleeve.
      I am sure family has passed it around to other family (you have that type family don't you? or is it just me)  
      So that left me wondering "do you tell" and i dont mean right at surgery time. more like a year or so down the road do you say how or do you just say cut out the sugar and carbs and WAALAA
      Its a real personal choice to open yourself up to that kind of criticism and we know all about how we took the "Easy" way and yada yada yada.
      hope everyone is having a great week

        If people ask, I am open about it

        I'm about 10 months post op, and my standard answer is I eat way less and exercise way more (oh, and I cut the carbs by a lot). The only people I told were Mr., the Kid, BFF and my Mom.

        People know cuz my sissies have big mouths. And when skinny peeps ask out of morbid curiousity and they are "related" somehow to me, I look at em and arch my eyebrow and smile like, WTF? Then I just shrug and say, "I can neither confirm nor deny." (I've practiced this in the mirror many times. LOL!)

        But today, I was talking to a lady in my oncologist's office and she said "Oh don't you love you Surgeon X - bariatric surgeon? I'm in her weigh loss program!" And so I really opened up to her and talked frankly about the program and the surgery and details and how I'm so much happier and healthier, etc. So there has to be a real genuine need and desire for comraderie--otherwise, "Bye Felicia..."
