I’m on day 3 of my liquid diet, I ended up eating yesterday, it was small but I got back on track. I’m struggling a bit with my Protein Drinks. I was so use to mixing it with my iced coffee, that now without it I hate it, and have a tropical punch Protein Powder but it’s not filling. I’m definitely on the struggle bus with this.

Try not to beat yourself up. The lack of variety, hunger and constantly thinking about food can make this liquid diet so tough mentally and physically. I was really struggling a few days ago so I get it.

I went to the store and bought a variety of broths--pho broth is a nice change over the standard veggie and chicken broth. Having something warm and savory made all the difference in hunger and feeling satisfied. I remember someone mentioned wonton broth too. Have you found any Protein Shakes you like? I have about 6 brands of shakes in as many flavors as I could find. It does give variety making this more tolerable.

Stay strong, you're almost there!

My surgery is scheduled for Jan 18. I am supposed to start my full liquid diet on the 4th. I decided to start on the today. I figured Starting today would give me the weekend to go through the possible side effects of not having any food before I have to go back to work on Tuesday. I am super excited for the future.

What are some success tips???

Another Jan 18th here! I wished it could be before the end of the year but the more I think about the timing the more I like the date. I can still enjoy holiday cooking and start my 2 week pre op diet just as I would have started a diet in any other year LOL. My birthday is a few days before surgery so I told my family we would Celebrate with a nice meal and small cake BEFORE I have to start the pre op diet. The surgery will be the perfect birthday present to myself!
Me too!

Hey everyone! I am scheduled for January 24th! I’m nervous because I don’t live in the US (I am in Prague, Czech Republic) and so I’m paying out of pocket. The experience is so different. I basically sent an email and they sent me a surgery date and a basic post-op meal plan. That’s it! No consultations, no pre-op anything. I’ve opted to roll out my own pre-op diet that I started on the 1st, and then I’m going to follow a 2 week liver shrinking diet leading up to surgery. The surgeon told me no diet needed, but from where I’m standing, it can only help me.

        Hello Joset, why haven't you been given a diet plan? Did you have your surgery in the UK? Every surgeon has a different diet, and no two people are on the same one. Weird I know. Contact your team if you can

        Mine was two weeks clear liquids

        Two weeks on soups, milk shakes and broths all with out lumps

        two weeks on pureed foods { I couldn't stomach this step }

        two weeks on soft foods like Protein yogurt, stewed mince and veg, soft scrambled eggs. Pate on hard crackers

        Then onto any food I fancied. If you struggle on any step or with any foods go back a step for a few days. Eggs, salmon and chicken are hard for beginners.

        Sorry I missed your original post, hope you are still on here.
