I’m not physically hungry, but my mind is trying to tell me that I’m hungry (if that makes sense).
Absolutely makes sense.

It's MY time!

All surgeons really are different aren't they? My doctor had us go on a two week pre-op diet, but it didn't have to be straight up liquid. We were allowed all the veggies we wanted. Only a half cup of fruit a day and our Protein and dairy was limited as well as our healthy fats. I ate a 1/4 cup of nuts every day during that two week diet lol. Also made giant pots of vegetable Soup to tide me over. Lost almost twenty pounds in that two week period so... it DID work. Also, the surgeon said my liver looked really good so... it did it's job! It's just funny how different all the surgeons do things...

Hang in there!! Just keep thinking about your surgery date and the new start of the rest of your life! I lost 12 lbs on the liquid diet, which was a great jump start too!

you just have to white knuckle it. A lot of us have been there.. I was allowed to eat sugar free popsicles and sugar free Jello (everything else was liquid), so I ate both of those with abandon since they were the only things that somewhat resembled real food. I remember making Jello and then eating half of it (or more!) in one sitting. As someone else said, it does seem to get better by about day 4.

I feel your pain. Today is Day 4 of my pre-op diet and mentally it is getting better, but man am I hungry!!! I am not tempted though. I’m super focused and I’m happy about that. Best of luck to you!

My pre-op diet is 2 weeks of 2 Protein Shake “meals” per day and one meal of a lean Protein and veggies, per day. That’s it. It’s crazy to me how different each facility is with their pre-op diet guidelines.
