My doctor is not requiring that I do any sort of pre-op diet, but I decided that I would do one on my own so that my liver is not "inflamed" before surgery (they prefer that you lose 10 lbs before surgery for that reason). It.Sucks.
After gorging myself on about 58 lbs of steak and chicken yesterday at TdB (my "Last Supper" as my husband and friend put it), protein shakes leave a lot to be desired. However the shakes I am trying today aren't too shabby. I was super excited to find one in Dark Chocolate flavor. I am taste testing this week to figure out which ones I actually like before I live on them for 2 weeks post-op. See my lunch below.
Now, I know that it will be much easier once the band is in place and I have restriction, but dang. Thank heavens for the blog to get my food frustration out.
