Stopped losing weight on Optifast



Recommended Posts

Good morning,

I go in for MGB on Thursday this week. I've been on the shakes for 11 days but only lost 8 lbs. I did cheat with one Pizza Crust and some potato chips. (just this in the 11 days) I drink more than enough Water throughout the day. I am getting scared that if 'm not losing on Optifast, what if I don't lose anything after surgery? Has anyone else gone through this? Is this normal? I've seen where other people have lost twice this in the same amount of time.

Everyone loses as different rates...stick to plan and we all pretty much end up at the same place in the end (barring any complications)

P.S. I lost 11 lbs in my liquid pre-op diet (which was for 2 weeks). I ended up losing more than 1/2 my total body weight.

Thank you for this response. It makes me feel so much better.

I agree, everyone loses at different rates. Presently on liquid pre-op diet, surgery this Friday 28th. Just want this over with and start the healthy journey. I am ready.

I used shakes on and off for years and I’m petite build 5’1” and I have a hard time loosing on them. I loose the first 10 easily but after that it’s a real struggle. I lost maybe 6 pounds on my 2 week liquid diet. I had bypass on 7/16 and I’m down 22lbs! 42 with my presurgery loss.
