I'm eight days in and down 4 lbs. I've been drinking around 100 oz of water a day. This diet makes me thirsty.
Surgery is this coming Friday! I can't wait to eat some carbs again!
I just finished... and in 13 1/2 days I lost 27 pounds. We did the sugar free clear liquid diet. Ours included anything clear & SF (sugar free clear soda, crystal ligh****ER.. and tons of it!!) Sugar free jello, sugar free popsicles & broth. All vitamins that we are to take post-op and 2 - 30g proteins shakes daily. I was afraid that I was going to be a raving "B" while doing it! But, I was so pleasantly surprised at how easy it was. And I could totally tell a difference in how my body was moving. (with the 13 pounds I'd already lost, 40 pounds down makes moving around a LOT easier!!)
Best of luck on what you're doing. My surgeon said that following his SFCLD made his job yestersay MUCH easier on him.. and it went perfectly! Hooooray!!
