Start Liquids tommorow any suggestions?
Im allowed 3 protein shakes a day mixed with low fat milk, skim milk or water,plain water, crystal light or sugar free koolaid, caffeen free coffee/ tea with sweetner no cream, chicken broth and sugar free jello... :(
Is it hard to comply with? I know no matter what I have to do this, but just wanting to know how hard it is.
Drink a LOT. For some reason, sometimes I find warm drinks more satisfying, so try some tea or broth if you feel really hungry.
You should be able to have sugar free popsicles as well, so eat a lot of those and a lot of jello.
Stay focused on your goal. Remind yourself this is only two weeks. You can do anything for just two weeks.

I found broth with a sprinkle of Mrs. Dash in it helped a lot. Felt more like actual soup with all the little Mrs. Dash tidbits in there. And it was more satisfying than the sweet shakes.
Sugar free popsicles are also very helpful.
Good Luck! One day at a time and you will make it.
Popsicles will be a lifesaver. Congratulations and Good Luck!!
The thing that has saved me though are the popcicles. It is like having a sweet little snack everyday, and if you want a second.
Hang in there and the cravings just sort of went away after the 3rd day.
