2 week diet

I was shocked that my surgeon didn't tell me I have to do one. I only have to do a liquid diet for the 2 days before surgery.

That's not unusual Steph.

The main reason(s) for a pre-op liquid diet is that your liver is enlarged (your surgeon can easily tell by feeling your tummy) and/or your on the heavier side (which you are not).

I didn't have to do a pre-op liquid diet but I did have to lose weight pre-op AND keep it off until my WLS (I lost just over 35lb).  I was able to eat a normal diet until midnight the day before my WLS.

I also had to lose weight before surgery. My last weigh in is on the 21st and I'm struggling to get to my goal weight.

You can do this Steph.  You're on the home stretch now.
