Calorie intake during pre op diet



Recommended Posts

What does your pre op diet amount to calorie wise? I’m halfway through second week, I’m glad for most after 3 days it gets better for most, I’ve only started feeling something like myself in the last 24 hours. I’ve been averaging around 600ish calories per day, though yesterday was 1000 and today just under 800.

Hi Marvy,

I have 4 Optifast shakes per day which amounts to 900 calories. I'm on Day 3 and starting to feel less hungry. I have to do this for 3 weeks.

Good luck on your journey

I was on Optifast too...had to do 3 a day for two weeks, my daily totals from this were about 600 cals. Though I remember the last maybe 4-5 days I only had 2 a day (was getting Protein Shake burnout).

I had two flavours: chocolate and vanilla. The vanilla was way too sweet for my liking so I ended up adding twice the amount of Water to the powder packet (I still have a few vanillas in my pantry that I never ended up using...i really should throw those out.) The chocolate was better, though I added 2 tsp of Decaf instant coffee crystals to it to make it more palatable.

Oh, and I blended them up with a bunch of ice when I drank them.

I like the Optifast shakes. To the vanilla I have added Mio Water enhancers so if I want something a little fruity it is great. I just had blueberry/raspberry and it was good.

I like the idea about adding instant coffee to the chocolate. Someone else told me to add mint extract.

Day 4 for me!
