are the delmonte no sugar added ice pops ok to eat afterwards? I'm assuming it's not ok for my 48 hr liquid prior to surgery but I didn't know about afterwards

Not sure about those. Are they made with real fruit? You might find that if they are still high in carbs because of natural fruit sugars, that you could dump, especially so soon after surgery. You should be able to make your own with SF Koolaid.

I don't know of a centre that allows fruit juice prior to surgery, but hopefully someone from your centre will speak up with their experience. Best to just avoid it otherwise. You'll be in ketosis by then and I suspect you'll have a lot less of a difficult time with the 48 hours than you're imagining you will. :)

As for post surgery, i can't see why not if they are sugar free. Bring a picture of the box (front, ingredients and nutrition label) to the hospital and ask the discharge nurse. Or post it here. Like the previous poster said, it may be high in carbs... but the nurse or we'd have to see it to know.

You got this! Planning is key. :)

I have not been able to find sugar free Koop aid. Does anyone know where it is sold? I have only found the squeeze bottles that are not sugar free.

I bought sugarfree koolaid at the dollar store in the summer...I can't remember if I've seen it since. I had a few left over that I've been adding to my routine to make life a bit easier and so I don't get bored of the same flavours!

It's likely called No Sugar Added in Canada. I have seen them in squeeze bottles all over with things like Mio and that.

I'm day 3 of 3 week Optifast and I haven't been able to find sugar free popsicles anywhere but realize it's not a great time of year for them. i was thinking of making some with Crystal Light but I figure they'd just be ice pops so not much advantage there. What I wouldn't give for something I could chew, and jello doesn't count.

After surgery you can certainly try them, they're 35 calories, 10 carbs and 1 sugar. They sit fine with me but you honestly never know what will and won't sit well with you post-op. You can also make your own with flavoured water too. It's a good way to get liquid in if/when you're having trouble with water.
