Weight Loss on Pre-Op Diet



Recommended Posts

I started my 3 week pre-op diet this past Monday (Jan. 20th). I am allowed up to 250 cal of low glycemic veggies and can add some spices/vinegar if desired. I'm also supposed to have 3 Protein Shakes, and can have some caffeine free black coffee/tea with artificial sweetener. So far, I have lost 12 pounds in 5 days. Is this normal? I haven't been any more active than usual.

yes. My pre-op diet was two weeks long and I lost 20 lbs, and I do remember losing a little more the first week than I did the second week - so 12 lbs for week 1 sounds about right.

Yes, I had one week liquid diet with 1 cup of fruit or vegetables twice a day and I lost 12 pounds.

Yes, it's normal (although everyone is different). I also find that the heavier a person is, the more they lose on these types of diets. I've noticed this not only on sites like this, but also when I was a part of weight watchers. People who were morbidly obese had very large drops of weight on any kind of restricted diet (10 pound or more a week), where as that would be both unusual and alarming for anyone who was within a normal BMI range. The first time I did this I lost 21 pounds in 21 days during my pre-op diet (of course it was not one pound a day, it stalled and dropped over 3-5 days usually, but the end result was this). I'll be starting my pre-op for my revision surgery in February, so hopefully I can get similar numbers.

        You are doing this for YOU not anyone else!! Do not worry about what others think, it is how you think and feel about yourself that counts.
