Hey Everyone!

I just wanted to give a quick update on the pre-op diet. This is the first day of the second week and I have started all liquid this week. I am drinking the Premier Protein Chocolate protein drinks this, and I am ordering some different flavors from unjury and they will be here soon. The Premier chocolate is not that bad. I am suppose to have 5 shakes a day but since these have more protein than the bariatric advantage protein shakes I am drinking 3 per day. I will admit I messed up once last week, because I was so hungry but I have not messed up anymore since. I  have lost about 14pds so far since I have been on the diet. I am so proud of myself for that accomplishment even thou I mess up once. This week I know is going to be little harder because I don't have the one meal per day anymore, its just all liquid. Next Monday this time I will be officially sleeved. I just hope that I have done good enough on my pre-op diet so that I will be able to have surgery. Wish me luck everyone! I will keep everyone posted on my progress.

Good luck with your second week!  I just started my first day of 2 week pre-op liquid diet.  It has been tough!  Flying home from West Coast to NY with whole family all day.  Snacks, now stopping to get dinner on the drive home.  I am drinking my shakes ugh!  I know it is for a very good reason but still hard!

If you dont mind me asking what does your doctor require for your pre-op diet the 2weeks? My doctor did let me have one meal the first week, but it have to be all lean and green including 3 vegetables. This week is all liquids thou. Also which protein drinks are you drinking as well?

You are so lucky to have had that one meal per day. My surgeon says only liquids for two weeks.

My doctor has me drinking 4 optifast shakes a day and I can eat 2 optifast bars.  I can also have decaf coffee, tea and no cal beverages.  Then just clear liquids two days before surgery.

Way to go on the 14 pounds lost! Even with the mess up, sounds like you're doing pretty good! It's very tough to do, but you can make it! It's a very small amount of time compared to the lifetime of healthy living you are about to start. I had to do a 2 weeks liquid diet with no meals at all!! Good luck to you! One more week. You can do it!!
