Journey to weight loss surgery



Recommended Posts

I have not had my surgery yet, I am still currently getting things situated with my insurance and going through all the post tests and everything, if anyone can give me some insight on the pre and post of this, and the foods you used for the liquid and soft part of your beginning foods. Thank you

I recommend preparing by adopting today the nutrition plan you will have 6 weeks after surgery. Drop sugar sweetened beverages, fried foods, and most processed foods. This will make the pre and post op diet easier to follow.

Your pre and post op liquid diet may include Protein Shakes, sugar free or fat free versions of pudding, Jello, popsicles, Soup broth, gatorade, yogurt, and milk. Puree foods: eggs, melted cheese or string cheese, mashed potatoes, bananas, Peanut Butter, applesauce, lean ground meats like turkey, and cooked carrots.

Everyone is different, but I recommend building a sustainable nutrition plan after the puree / soft food stage that doesn't include Protein Bars or Protein shakes. I'm consuming 2070 calories daily with 112 g protein daily with no protein bars or shakes.

Thank you so much for the ideas and the pre and post op, my first apt is November 30th, she said I’ll do my testing and blood work then and maybe see my nutritionist. Is there any advice on when you see a nutritionist what to expect, and with the psychologist.

My nutritionist just said eat more Protein, protein, protein. My Dr is jamming my bldwk, counseling, & Dr appts all in 3mnths, so it's going pretty fast & then they said to join this appt, sign into another appt, keep track of ur meals..... blah,blah,blah! I hv no idea on what I'm doing. I DID hear .. "find some friends" so u don't hv to go alone in this. I'm still trying to figure out THIS app.

From what I'm told by my brother, who has gone through this a few yrs back said that the therapist wants to know y ur doing this? For good reasons, of course. And wants to c if ur mentally ready for the surgery. I know I sure am! Good luck oh & therapist is not to long after the nutrionist
