My surgery date is May 12 but I won't start my diet until April 28th. Mine is only 2 weeks. Do you have to do liquids only, or do you have food built in as well? Mine will be a mix of Protein Shakes and high Protein Snacks and one meal.

I'm on day 8 of what will be 17 day pre op liver shrink diet. LSG 4/27. Protein Shakes, raw veggies and 1 low fat low carb meal. Day 3 was my low point, starting to get a little easier! You got this.

Mannnn I feel really bad, you guys are doing so well with the liver shrink diet.
I'm trying but I'm struggling!!!!
I am praying but this is harder than I thought.
My surgery is Tuesday 4/27 and I think I may have started behind. My pre Op consultation was last Friday.
Anyway I'm praying and praying for you all!!!

Today is day 2 of my preop diet and I'm feeling HANGRY.

I woke up this morning with a splitting headache and I'm also feeling tired and I'm cold, when usually I'm hot. Not sure if those are related to preop but I'll place the blame there anyway.

This afternoon I've been sitting thinking about food 'what if I just had a salad? ' 'Maybe I'll make scrambled eggs when I get home... surely they wouldn't be able to tell?". Sigh. I'm going to stay on plan but boy is my mind working overtime today!

Yes, feeling cold is common if you're not eating. I did intermittent fasting and that was the worst thing about it. I was always cold during fast days. And the headache is common too.

You'll come through it! Drink some hot tea if you can, or broth. Maybe go for a brisk (short) walk to warm up.

My surgery is May 7. Today is technically day 3 of my 2 week liver shrink diet. I’ve been practicing getting to this point since Easter and decided I could start a day early to hopefully get rid of the hunger block before Monday. It’s not easy. I’m hitting a wall today but mentally I am strong.

My pre-op is Monday and I’ve officially lost 15.6% of my beginning weight. Started in Oct. the surgery is coming up fast after what felt like a lifetime waiting for the approval process. Good luck to everyone!

Day 3 was so hard for me, but by day 5 there really is a breakthrough. Amazing that you lost 15% pre op... I lost nothing until the liver shrink started. My surgery is Tuesday... Good luck to you! You've already come so far - you totally got this.

Surgery date is May 10th (YAY!), so I start my two week pre-op diet tomorrow. Nervous, but VERY excited!
