Good Luck tomorrow
My plan allowed 4 a day , 3 for meal replacement and one for snack . Broth , Sf jello black coffee and diet pop . I am on day 19 , surgery is at 8 am Tuesday morning !
I can tell you that I have only had all 4 shakes maybe 4 or 5 days out of the 19 . Just the way my days are , I've really only managed to get in the 3 , I could have had one sitting down late at night but I kind of got into the routine of having an OXO drink and my diet Pepsi at night. Consequently I now have about a box and a half left of Opti . It will come in handy for after tho . When is your surgery ??
Good luck xx

I was denied surgery :(
I started my liquid diet a week early. Today is day 7 of 23. I was not told I had to have a certain number of shakes, I was told I have to have 100gm of protein in liquid form. I bought a big tub of whey protein powder and I mix it with different "liquids" to be right at 100gm for the day.
Here is what I had today:
12oz non fat milk with two scoops of powder = 52gm I drink that in sips all morning.
Then for lunch I had 1 cup of non fat plain yogurt with one more scoop of powder for another 31gm of protein.
Tonight I fudged a little and had 5oz of tuna drained, right from the can. Yummy! That's roughly 25gm. I won't be fudging beyond the two week point.
This is a grand total of 108gm.
I also drank about 80oz of water.
