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 lapbandtalk.com. 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!!
