For those that had to do a 2-week liquid diet before surgery, how much weight did you lose on the liquid diet?

I lost 18 lbs in the 2 weeks prior to my surgery.  i am now 15 months out and I am down a total of 200 lbs.  Good luck on your journey.

I only did five days of liquids before surgery.  I don't know how much I lost, I didn't get on the scale.

I lost 20 lbs preop on the 2wk liquid diet.  I didn't cheat at all as I didn't want to risk an open surgery vs. a laparascopic procedure.

That is one reason I havent strayed from my liquid diet. I had open surgery for my gall bladder removal and it was like a shark attack. i have a huge, terrible scar and it took 5 weeks to return to work. Since i started the 2-week liquid diet arounf 330 lbs, I think 16-20 pounds is possible if i stay focused.

First time I lost around 8 lbs, second time I lost around 4. I only had to do a 10 day pre-op diet instead of 2 weeks.
