Liquid Diet Pre Op-only broth



Recommended Posts

Hi everyone. I have to do a liquid diet for a week, as I have a fatty liver and the liquid diet will put me in ketosis. My surgeon told me to drink five Protein Shakes a day but I am worried that is too much. This is my first day and I’m thinking about just drinking chicken broth, eating sugar free Jello, and drinking Gatorade zero. I have to stay under 1000 calories. Will those foods still put me in ketosis?

I'd strongly advise just doing what the surgeon says. I know you want it all to happen right now, but don't worry. WLS is unlike any diet you've tried before; you get over the rush of crash dieting and start a new life of just following the plan. Why not start right now doing just that?

Hugs.

they will, but your body needs the Protein. You need to drink the shakes. You'll get sick pretty fast if your body doesn't have enough protein.

You've received great advice from OAGBpal and catwoman7. They're right that you need the Protein. I especially love this:

My dietitian gave me other options as I am lactose intolerant and the shakes have lactose, basically the same macro amounts as having the shakes but in food form, so I can have about a quarter cup of carbs or 1 slice bread, 150g raw weight meat or fish (100g cooked weight), plus vegetables, 3 times a day. With the final day before surgery being only clear Fluid.
