Just wondering why you are starting the liquid diet if you don't have a surgery date yet. Until you get a date, you can still prepare by eliminating foods you cannot/should not have after surgery, such as sugar, refined carbs, soda, caffeine, and alcohol. Cleaning up the general diet even before the official pre-op diet is very helpful so you don't go through withdrawal while dealing with the hard parts of liquid diet and recovery.

I’m on day 6 of my preop liquid diet. Things I have learned.

liquid in means liquid out. Be aware.
chicken broth makes this even worse!
Don’t trust farts
You’ll be tempted to cheat. Don’t do it. Find something else to distract you.
Plan on hiding from people. It’s too hard to be around food.
Stock up before your diet starts. It’s too are to be in the grocery store.
Good luck!!!! You can do this!

Azhiker reason being is that my doc wants 4 weeks on the pre op diet and as I stated I’m just easing into it. I’m just waiting til my appointment on the tenth to set a date...I’ve already cut out the other foods, soda, alcohol and caffeine and just want to be successful. Thank you.☺️

Are you expecting a surgery date soon? My preop diet was only 10 days and I definitely wasn't starting any earlier lol but that's just me. I get it though, it could be good to get a jump start so that if you "cheat" now it won't effect the actual preop time.

Stock up on as much as you can now. Nothing worse than running out of the few things that you can have lol

      6 Weeks Post Op!

      My world is drastically different! I now walk 3 to 4 miles a day and I’m constantly getting up to move my body! .

      I close my Apple Watch rings daily and about 4 to 6 days a week I double or triple them!

      I have been released to have all foods. When I reintroduce some I need to start at 1 ounce to see how “Tiny Tummy” likes it!

      I am not reintroducing sugars, coffee or junk! I did not pay close to $13,000 to fail! .

      I went to get follow up bloodwork done this week and my numbers are all in the perfect range! .

      This is my new world and I am happy it!

        Congratulations. It’s a great feeling when the weight disappears & you can start to do so much more. 😁

        I didn’t see it either but I wish I had now for both the battle on court & the ball tampering accusations flying around everywhere now.

      Went to see the Star Wars movie yesterday. (Glad I waited as no one else was in the cinema for the midday session - yes!) Hadn’t been to the cinema for a few months and OMG I suffered the most terrible butt pain.  So uncomfortable. Started after 30 mins. Was in the premium cinema so grabbed a cushion to sit on but it didn’t help. Ended up sitting sideways in the chair, stretched out on an ottoman. Soooo super glad no one else was there. Sometimes I do miss my old butt fat cushioning... but not really.
