Getting my mindset for pre-op diet

So I'm really getting nervous about starting my pre-op liquid diet 2 weeks before the surgery. I'm thinking it's not going to be all liquid, but mostly liquid. I'm trying to get ideas from people on youtube and the forums on I've already went to the Vitamin Store, and Target and bought one bottle of whey protein - chocolate, and one bottle of whey protein - cookies & cream. As far as anything else that I need to get, I'm probably not going to get those until right before the surgery.

My plan for the pre-op diet is to eat to protein shakes for breakfast and lunch possibly with some fruit, and then for dinner have some chicken broth.

I'm still trying to get ideas for meals for post-surgery.

I'm also going to have to find some good vitamins for me. However I'm not sure I'm gonna buy the "bariatric vitamins" -- I might just have the Flinstones Vitamins.

I can't believe it's coming soo close!!


  1. so glad you've got a blog, too! can't wait to hear more about your life and weightloss journey.

  2. So exciting for you! I just was banded on October 1st, so I'm right there with you. The Flintstones vitamins are awesome (just take 2 a day) and for Calcium I take 2 Tums a day (the other calciums were so gross tasting and you had to chew so many of them!)

    I'm also not a huge fan of protein powders, but I found one I love - Beneprotein. You can add it to hot or cold things and it doesn't change the texture or taste. It's fabulous! A little more expensive than other powders, but well worth it when you have to think of having it every day! :) You can buy it at

    Good luck with your surgery! Follow my blog if you want more tips and tricks for after surgery or email me with questions.

    Best Regards,
