Every doc/nut suggests very different plans. Although I plan on and have been following mine to a tee, mine seems a little extreme....Here's my plan, care to share yours for comparion??
**NO DRINKING for 90 MIN AFTER YOUR FIRST BITE OF FOOD!!!
Pre-op (2 wks before surgery)
2 protein shakes
dinner: 4 oz lean meat w/ 1/2 cup veggies
snack: sf jello/popsicle or chix broth
2 wks following surgery:
Puree protein diet (only JUCIY protein allowed soft meats, chesse, cottage cheese, eggs)
then next 2 weeks:
Soft, moist protein (only protein allowed soft meats, chesse, cottage cheese, eggs)
*no processed meats
1 month out:
ALL meat protein: meat, cheese, fish, beans
can have decaf coffee now :)
CAN ADD 1//2 C VEGGIE TO 1 MEAL WHEN 2 MONTHS OUT
CAN ADD 1/2 C FRUIT TO 1 MEAL WHEN 4 MONTHS OUT
CAN ADD YOUGURTS, DAIRY, AT LEAST 6 MONTHS OUT + 1 CARBONATED DRINK
NO CARBS UNTIL @ 75% OF GOAL WEIGHT
60-80g of protien, no mention of fat g or carbs. Snacks: sf jello/popsicles or chix broth but if I am low on my protein for the day I have another protein snack,,,,OMG I am so sick of meat/cheese already......
I'm only at 5 weeks, what a wouldn't give for some fresh fruits and veggies right now.......
bariatric chewable vitatim, klor con (nasty salty powder that is mixed in water for 4 months UGH!!!-truly the worst part of this experience), acid reducer, and Co-Q 10 (I credit this little pill for ALL my energy and feeling great during pre-op and post op).
Doc did NOT prescribe me any calcium citrate, B-12, or D (told me he's a medicaton minimalist) but I think he's waiting for my 3 month labs to see if there are any defiancies......
