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

      I can now buy clothes in normal stores again. Admittedly the first time when I started trying on clothes, I really had to keep myself calm. Normally trying on clothes causes me to become SOOO depressed that it take weeks just to get over it. Now, I have to keep myself from not wanting to buy everything!

      Hi, congrats on your surgery!  Saw you went to Dr. Pleatman.  I've been between doing the Lap Band and sleeve.  I was suppose to have a consultation with Dr. Pleatman this month.  So far great experience with his office coordinator Carrie (sp?).   Feeling really scared and nervous about getting the sleeve.  If you can share...how was your experience with Dr. Pleatman's office and the surgery?   Thanks!

      I'm not new, I was an active Lapbander from:

      February 6, 2017 Here I am on October 4, 2019 thinking back over my Lapband journey and how I thought I would be banded for life. Unfortunately, I have been sick for some time, and am on medications; and well my weight has constantly slowly increased. I was 225 pounds when I had my Lapband surgery on Dec. 17, 2010. At least my weight hasn't reached 210. I have been fluctuating between 202-206. For that, I'm grateful. I'm just excited to be able to have another tool to assist me with my weight loss journey. I'm not looking forward to the liquid stage, however.
