Pre-Op Liquid Diet



Recommended Posts

I was provided the Robard diet by my doctor but it feels like it's overpriced and pointless when there are others like the other one posted. Could I do that liquid diet or should I stick closer to the one I was given. It just feels like I'm being taken for a ride because my doctor sells the Robards products.

If it isn't mandated I would be using something else. I understand the need for revenue streams but not when there are much cheaper options and not at the patient's expense.

I had a look at the Robard site and their weight loss management system is advertised as a profit stream for private practices. https://robard.com/

My dietician who was aligned with my surgeon provided my options for pre-op and none that needed to be purchased from either of them.

In my opinion i feel it was wrong for your Dr to attempt to make a profit from a patient outside of surgery.

my surgeon didn't use Robard (or any other commercial diet), but it looked about the same as yours otherwise - 4-5 Protein Shakes a day, plus all the zero (or near-zero) clear liquid beverages I wanted (which included sugar free Jello and sugar free popsicles). I was also allowed to have Tomato juice/V8 and plain broth (like chicken broth) - but I'm pretty sure I was only allowed to have like a cup of each of those a day because of the sodium.

You don't have to use specific products. Use your common sense and make it a liquid diet of your own choosing.

I figure if you can achieve the same macros with less expensive and equivalent/similar products then its all good. I am not familiar with Robard products but it is in all liklihood that it DOESN’T provide any extra benefits from other similarly manufactured products.
