Anyone cheated on pre op diet prior to their surgery?



Recommended Posts

You’re not the only one. Not saying it’s right or wrong but whether you do it again is up to you. This is just the beginning of big changes to how & what you eat. Take it one day at a time. The first week is usually the hardest because your breaking habits & addictions.

All the best.

Of course we did, it part of the reason we were in the position we are in. No self control . Me my last meal was burger 🍔 king along with a few other sneaky treats but in saying that I was at the lower end of the scale my surgeon didn't require me to liquid diet but My dietitian insisted

I was anal retentive about following everything to the letter pre-op and for the first six months post-op. Be careful to follow your ore-op diet as much as possible because you need to shrink your liver before WLS and it helps you prefer for the two weeks liquid diet post-op.

I didn’t cheat but my pre op diet was a little easier than most it was meat and low carb veggies plus I had free foods like Jello, lettuce and pickles (had a few pickle salads though, lol). I have heard of people that did and they were okay but I would try not to anymore. Post op, assuming no real hunger pains it is a little easier so you just have to get through these next few days. You can do it. Just think about all the reasons why you want this surgery and when you want to eat read threads on here such as “weirdest non scale victories” or “what is your why” (I think that’s it) to remind you of all the changes you are working towards.

      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 .
