Do you know that she is being asked to follow a liquid diet? I know some surgeons require it for two weeks, some ten days, and some like mine, that do not believe in the liquid diet pre surgery. They require people not to eat the day prior to surgery, but they think it is more important to start losing weight the way one will after surgery. Not IMMEDIATELY after surgery, but the eating healthier, getting proteins in first, fruits and veggies, cutting bad carbs, and so on. My WLS team still requires weight to be loss before doing surgery, so I am guessing what is most important is that she loses the amount of weight required of her by her team.
