Looks like your menu would be way more enjoyable with the yogurt and hot cereals. I start mine Wednesday I hope its not too difficult.20211226_060953.jpg

Oh wow yours is strictly liquid! I was told no slimfast because it has too much sugar in it. Good luck with you diet and surgery! I'm sure you will be able to get through it!

Yes it funny how different they are. My dietitian said Protein Shakes need to be under 5 grams of sugar, under 200 calories and high Protein. I've been doing the Premier Protein. Good luck to you too.

I take my hat off to all who are on the pre-op diet during Christmas and New Years. I am nervous about the pre op diet all by itself let alone during the holidays which are usually centered around food. CONGRATULATIONS rather you realize it or not that is no small task and just wanted to encourage all keep it up. I start Jan 4th😬

Mine is as follows:

Starting on January 4th, avoiding carbs, no fruit, no yogurt. I will be using a Protein Shake for 2 of my meals, and my other meal will be lean Protein and vegetables. The day before surgery (1/10) I will be on a liquid diet. 3-4 Protein Shakes a day and sugar-free Clear Liquids.

My surgery is Jan 11 (with luck as long as I don't get cancelled)

      I just had a teaspoon of hummus with a teaspoon of avocado topped with a teaspoon of greek yogurt and it. was. GLORIOUS. I'm four days out and my surgeon gave me the greenlight to work in small amounts of pureed food.

      Kind of nervous, as expected. One month out from surgery!

      😫 Hi, I’m new to bariatricpal! I am 8 days post op VSG. I am struggling very badly. I’ve been so emotional because I feel like I’m doing wrong. I’m afraid I’ll eat or drink to fast or eat the wrong thing. I’ve been on Pinterest and YouTube constantly for help. I have followed all of my surgeons and dieticians instructions. I just don’t know if my body is getting enough. Today, I am weak, sore, and just exhausted.

        It passes!! Everyone goes though it! It is a short term emotion! I'm almost five years post op! You made the right decision! Don't focus on the change right now. Try to entertain your mind. What your feeling only last about a week. It's related to your body adjusting and you mind adjusting. You got this!!

        I agree with Tara it's hard right now but it gets better do t forget your hormones will be all over the place you may even feel depressed. Be kind to yourself reach out and talk to people how you are feeling .
