*sigh* Just grit your teeth. I have surgery tomorrow and have only managed 30grams of Protein via these awful, awful shakes today.

Some people only feel like this for a couple of days into the liquid diet. Unfortunately, l have been hungry and miserable the whole time.

Every night I have dreams of either a hard boiled egg, a plum, or a real NYC-Italian sub sandwich. I can't imagine I will eat the sub again, but I will dance a little dance when I can eat an egg, fruit and salads!

Thanks good luck with your surgery. I’ve got seven more days
I was the same way as you are now. Pre op was honestly the worst part for me. I was on a liquid diet for 7 days pre op and I did break down and buy a few of those tuna creations pack and for a few days I would substitute that for one of my drinks. Just make sure they're very high Protein and low sugar and carbs (the flavors have different amounts). I'm not trying to tempt you, just letting you know I was there too and it ended up working out for me, I had surgery on schedule and lost 11 lbs on the 7 day pre op diet. Best of luck, hang in there.

I am day 5 of my liquid diet and I dont care for my Protein Shakes. So i started adding ice to them and blending them to be "milkshake" consistancy. I also found flavors that would be good with PB Fit and add those for extra Protein. My nutrionist told me I can add liquid consistency baby food in as long as there is no added sugar for the in between times.

You can do this! I am down 14 lbs in 5 days doing this.

Thank you! We shall get through this. By this time next month, both you and I can have my favorite tuna salad:

1 can tuna packed in Water, 1 slice red onion, 2 tbsp of low fat cream cheese, couple of dashes of liquid smoke and salt and pepper to taste. Do not drain tuna and put everything together in blender or food processor until very smooth.

I have made this for parties as a cracker spread! It's delish.
