So, I have been stalking lapbandtalk and a bunch of blogs for 4 months....pre-op diets are all over the board! There is no consistency. This makes it real confusing, but as a good faithful bander...I will follow my doctors orders.
Here it is.
2 weeks pre-surgical diet(notice the name is slightly different)
Protein Shakes no limit (my WLS center sells it its 19 grams of protein, 6 grams of fiber, <1 gram of sugar and 116 calories a serving) Remember I won 5 lbs so I will be using that first.
Other protein sources
Plain chicken breast no sauce or skin
egg whites(or egg beaters)
water packed tuna
Seasoning-herbs,salt and pepper
Other acceptable foods/beverages
Low calorie drink mixes(crystal light)
Skim or soy milk
Torani sugar-free syrups
So this means to me...no vege's or fruit. I am going to clarify with my nutrionist because I technically could go without the shakes and just eat the protein and I am not sure on portions either.
What I see.....a whole lotta blockage...I better get me a laxative!
I also need to rule-out caffeine, so starting Thursday...no more loaded coffee...it will be decaf. I like that its not completely liquid but I am a little confused about what a typical food day should look like. I meet with my nutrionist Saturday right before the support group.
Meanwhile, I have a cold..sucks, stuffed runny nose and cough. I sound lovely, so I am staying home and working. I pretty much did that all weekend...boring...I think I may go stir crazy soon.
Hope you all have a lovely week!
