One word for Optifast = VILE
So I started my preop on the 20th and optifast is just gross. I chug it down as fast as I can and hold my nose at the same time. I did put decaf coffee in the chocolate one after the first one had me gagging and that was a little better. I am so thankful that I only have 5 days of this. Surgery is next week on the 27th due to a cancellation. I was originally set up to do two weeks. I really feel for everyone that had to do this for more than a week.
I am also so glad I get to have sf popsicles, jello, broth, and 2 cups of veggies a day or I would never make it.What did you do to make the opti taste better or is there even a way to do that? LOL yes I'm being dramatic but oh my giggles that stuff is just gross. Now of course I'm extremely anxious because it's all real now and so close after waiting for so long. Wish me luck :)

Try adding some peppermint extract. I found that really help me get it down.
