yes - it's pretty awful. You just have to white knuckle it. I was relieved the morning of surgery because it was O-V-E-R!! (it's not bad after surgery since most of us aren't hungry then...)

I had my surgery on June 3, too (of 2015)

I was allowed to have a limited amount of clear broth and Tomato juice/V8 every day (I think it was a cup of each), and I did have those every day - the sodium in them makes some people retain Water, which can make you feel more "full" (well, less hungry, anyway...). I notice my clinic now allows the patients to have pickles and Pickle Juice on the pre-op diet. Same thing - sodium. I was also allowed to have sugar free popsicles and sugar free Jello - I ate both with abandon (sometimes I'd eat the whole thing of Jello (4 servings or whatever) in one sitting, because it was the only thing I could have which somewhat resembled real food.

if you're one who's allowed one meal a day on the pre-op diet, consider yourself lucky. Many of us are on all liquid diets. It's tough - but we manage to get through it!!

Just drink so much Water and Gatorade zero that you can’t stand it anymore! That’s what I have been doing for almost a week now. I get soo liquid full that the sight of food makes me nauseated. It’s definitely not easy, but just keep telling your self it temporary!

Hey! I'm right there with ya! I started yesterday and I feel like I'm starving. I know that I'm obviously not but the liquid isn't cutting it for me. I was hoping seltzer would help fill me up but even thats not really helping. I think it's the fact that we can't actually chew anything that's messing with our heads. Anyways sorry I don't have any helpful tips but just wanted you to know you're not alone. Hang in there!

I hear you, Mary. Today is my 2nd day and I'm struggling. I ended up making a Greek salad (no cheese) but I had to add a boiled egg to it and I don't even know if that's allowed. Approximately 12 more days to go. Having this forum helps. It's nice to know others are on the same journey. And it's going to be the best journey ever.

You can always try freezing some Protein Shakes partially and eating with a spoon.
I’ve also blended one with ice so make it thicker to eat with a spoon.
Hang in there. For me it got easier the longer I did was on it.

That is an awesome idea! I wish someone had told me about this. I am actually going to do this now. It will seem like I am eating ice cream but healthy. Thanks

I just bought some silicone popsicle molds with little lids from Amazon- and filled them with my Protein Drinks and slowly had them. My plan after surgery is mix plain nonfat greek yogurt with 1/2 teaspoon of pureed blueberries (just for taste) and make frozen yogurt popsicles. Also- these were inexpensive for eight of them. They also say you can put any juice, or crystal light in them and they will freeze, thus making sugar free popsicles. I am scared for the pre-op all liquid diet for two weeks. I just cleaned out the entire refrigerator and freezer and either threw stuff out, or gave to a neighbor. I also made a huge batch of chicken broth (found 5 bags of bones from leftover chicken I made) and then got square containers at the dollar store, about 1.5 cup size- and they stack well. So I am stocked up for a while. I also made pea Soup (no meat) and pureed it silky smooth and have those when the time comes. I put plastic wrap on before the lid so no freezer burn. I live alone and have to have things easy for myself. Hope these ideas help someone.

Hi- thank you- and I just realized I received ten of them, not eight, lol. Also, I was just thinking you could put your smoothies or diet cranberry juice in them, etc. Lots of ways to freeze things. And because we have to eat slow, we can "squeeze up" whatever we are having slowly- and if we have to stop, just put the cap back on.

Thanks for the idea - I just ordered these. I plan to freeze some Water with drink mix added and some Protein Drinks for before surgery and when I'm on full liquids after surgery.

      I hit my stall ALREADY 🤷🏽‍♀️ been at 300 for almost a week. I’m not worried about it though, because I know that my body is healing. I’m not in a rush, I loss 30 pounds since surgery which was 3 weeks ago. I’m just going with the flow and staying positive. 😁

        It's very common. Give your body a chance to "catch up" with its new reality and the weight loss will start again. Hang in there, I know it can be frustrating!

      2. slink33

        Same with me. Lost 38 lbs from the week I started clear liquids prior to surgery. Did not lose an ounce for the last 10 days, woke up this morning and decreased 2 lbs. I think it is normal. Dont panic. Your body is in shock and trying to figure out how to readjust.

      First Orangetheory class back after surgery! #347 for me. Determined to take things easy- especially those ab exercises. Looking forward to hitting #350 this week.

        Hi, I have been having a look around the site, I cant find anywhere that you can delete your account yourself, However in the rules it indicates that staff can delete accounts so maybe use the "contact us" tab at the very bottom of the page and ask for assistance there.

    • UniquelyMe28

      I loss 19 pounds my first 7 days post op 🙌🏽 (Water weight or real weight.. weight is weight to me.. I’ll take it lol) I make sure I keep my water with me 24.7 and I walk every chance I get. I cook dinner for my kids with no problems. I have zero cravings!  By next week I should be in the 200’s. Haven’t been there since high school 🥲

        I had my surgery 11/17 and hit 299 this morning! :) Rooting for you!

      2. UniquelyMe28

        Congrats I’m at 289 now. Its a wonderful feeling, right!?

      Well, starting day 2 after surgery. Felling hunger pains again this morning and nausea, no vomiting. I think the hunger pains are coming from my stomach and not my pouch. Think I will call their hotline and speak with them about it. It is not terribly bad but it is uncomfortable. I do not regret getting the surgery though. I expected some discomfort right after, I just didn't expect the hunger pains.
