Topic: What are you eating/doing today? (Thursday)

Good morning everyone. Having trouble falling asleep, so I thought I'd get the thread started.

Had a good giggle with my friend yesterday. I love catching up with old friends.

Today I am going swimming and then later to the gym. I have some errands to run after that, and maybe a nap this afternoon, lol.

B. Lots of decaf throughout the day. 1/2 of an egg sandwich, Burnbrae egg patty on Smarbun with 1 slice bacon.

S1. Protein shake while at the gym - Protein Iced Coffee

L. Costco rotisserie chicken salad on 1/2 of an avocado.

D. Grilled chicken skewers from Costco, a little Cajun spice, asparagus.

S2. SF Cocoa

I brought my forms with me when I met the surgeon. He filled them out and signed them no problem.

This is the post that everyone going on this journey should read. This is brilliant advice from a bonafide vet.

Everything that Dawn is saying is to help you be successful.

Dawn I love that you and the other vets unselfishly take the time to write out posts like this. So well said.

Topic: RE: is there anything you can substitute optfast with?

I had a bad reaction to the Optifast, so I ended up using Premier Protein and GNC Lean Shakes as substitutes and the surgeon was happy with the state of liver on surgery day. You definitely need to speak with your surgeon's office ahead of time though, they can cancel/reschedule the surgery if they aren't okay with the switch.
