Pre-op diet prior to liquid diet



Recommended Posts

I have my consultation appointment coming up and know I will have appointments with a dietician and be tracking my food for at least 4 months. What type of plan do they put you on? Do they go ahead and put you on a plan similar to an eating plan post op?

I wasn't given a specific plan pre-op or even for the 2 weeks leading up to surgery. Personally I did low-carb high Protein and that worked well enough to get me to my pre-op weight needed in time.

So they will likely have a goal weight they want me at prior to the surgery? How much is typically required to lose prior to surgery?

Yes, absolutely. They want to make sure you can stick to something before surgery. Mine was 5% of my weight. I was 335 and needed to hit 318. I went to Europe and came back at 352 and only had 3 months to get down to 318 but I did it.

20 lbs over 2 months. No white flower products / no sugary crap either. High Protein verry low carbs is the ticket. I lost 60 lbs.

      I am now 10 days post op and I am down 16lbs. I had an allergic reaction to the glue my doctor used so I am still sore and trying to keep moving to not get stiff.

        Hello congratulations on your new journey I am 5 days post op and still trying to get the hang of things. I’m supposed to return back to work in a few days but still sore as well. Do you have any advice for me being 5 days post opt?

      Hello,  I am brand new on here. 
      The doctor qualified me yesterday for the surgery, so now I have to take 12 weeks of education classes and then he said they will schedule the surgery 4-6 weeks after I complete the classes. 
      I am excited to start this new journey.

      Am at the half-way mark of the six month pre-op program.  So excited!  Got clearance from psychologist this morning, so I scheduled my surgery consult for early March.  It is becoming more real now.  Have lost 18 pounds so far, since I began this journey on 12/18/19.

      So months ago, the Kid thought it would be funny to create an account on here and troll me with it.  Figured out it was her a few days later, and had a laugh about it.  She's been trolling me on it ever since.
      This morning I went on to post something and realized after the fact that I posted using her account as she was on my laptop last night 🙄
      Trolling over, Kid.
