Hey all!

I have an appointment Friday to start my 3 month supervised diet prior to surgery! I'm excited but nervous at the same time. What should I expect during this next three months? What sort of diet were you asked to follow?

Thanks!

Low carb low fat high Protein but not Keto. Veggies, fruits, etc.

Each doctor's office will have slightly different plans, some will be calorie restrictions like < 1500 calories/day, some will be focus on Protein. But you can bet it's cut out fat and processed foods.

mine had me eating 2300 calories, logging my food intake, exercising at least 4-5 times a week, weaning myself off of caffeine, and gradually increasing my Protein and decreasing my carbs. In essence, making a gradual transition to what life would be like post-op. But the above poster is right - plans can vary between clinics and dietitians.

Thanks everyone! I assume there would be some variability. My insurance isn't requiring it at all, but the office wanted me to do so. I'm pretty thankful for that, because as you mentioned, I would assume it would help with the transition into the new post-op lifestyle!

Good luck! It should help you to get in the mindset you will need to keep off the weight.

I am not restricted with any food, but we set a few goals each month, such as getting off caffeine ( hard to do), giving up alcohol ( easy to do), increase Water to 60 oz ( I started at 30 and at 50 oz now), start exercising and maintain it, try out different Protein Shakes, add fruit and veggie into my diet consistently, add multi vit and the calcium citrate pills to lunch and dinner. And to not drink for 30minutes before and 30 minutes after each meal. This is very hard to do, but I'm trying.

Why no Keto?

Why no Keto?
My doctor doesn't believe in Keto as a long term successful way to eat. I agree with him and enjoy fruits and veggies and feel they are nourishing to my body.

        Mostly alright. Of course we're scared about COVID and we're getting more and more patients that tested positive.

        It's kind of draining to see only the severe cases. It kind of makes you blind to the milder cases that never show up at the hospital and in the end that's the majority of SARS-CoV-2-positive people.

        I agree

      The dogs have finally figured out the new schedule for walking twice a day...and keep bugging me at the appropriate times to go out. For those of you who dont't have dogs, they have no snooze function. So they have really held up the bargain of being my personal trainers. Who's a good boi?!?
