I started my preop diet yesterday and it ain’t easy lol I stocked up on Protein Shakes and sugar free popsicles but nothing else. It is definitely doable but it’s hard not going to lie. Any one else feel this way?

It’s very tough, not going to lie. I’ll be cheering you on from the rhythm section ❤️

Yes! It’s the growling for me lol but I just drink more Water when that happens. I’m only eating about 650-700 calories per day, is that normal? It doesn’t really say how many calories to eat but it can’t be much more than that on a liquid diet...

Yep it does suck bigtime, no getting around it! I was on an all-liquid diet for two weeks, Protein Shakes and Clear Liquids only but I will say this: It absolutely helps prepare you for your new way of eating and thinking. I'm really glad I went through it because it brought up issues I didn't realize existed and I had to tackle them BEFORE entering the operating room. If you can get through the pre-op diet, you can do anything!

So True...I am on a liquid diet but have a good attitude and know this is only temporary. Looking forward to a new life a few months from now!

I was so fortunate my surgeon only required 2 days of clears. It was tough. The red white and blue popsicles were a life saver. Hang in there. You got this!

My surgeons pre-op diet only allows 1,000 calories a day of liquid only, so I think 650-700 would be okay.

Wow only in the 3’s? How many calories are in your Protein Shakes? Well also I can eat a little meat and vegetables. I was feeling light headed day 1 day 2 was a little better, today is day 3 and I don’t wake up starving so that’s a good thing. I lost 3lbs already so I’m happy about that.

Yes I’m gonna get some of those over the weekend and some sugar free Jello. I lost 3lbs already in two days so that was pretty motivating!

Glas to hear it is going better for you. Day 4 for me and I m so ready to move on to the next phase-surgery & recovery. When we get to the regulr diet fter this it will seem like a big deal insread of undoable. Good luck to you!

Yes I know I have an end goal so that makes it a lot easier! I’m so ready for this and I am just grateful that I was able to get this surgery because no everyone could. I am definitely not going to cheat!

Wishing you the very best and you have a wonderful attitude. I will be thinking of you everyday and you got this!😎
