    Jesse. Be gentle to yourself! The first 3 days absolutely sucked, and my pre op was 3 shakes 2 soups and one bar for 10 days, then just shakes and soups. They were Optifast, so 800 cal total per day. The soups helped! I also ordered "bone broth" on Amazon - it is high in protein. I hated the lemon grass chicken broth, but the other ones were tasty.

    After day 3 it was easier, but that's because the sugar war was over in my head. And I agree - the sweet gets yucky. Best to you!

I've still had my favs but just bites of it instead of huge servings. And, for the most part, that's been sufficient. I haven't (until the liquid diet started) felt depraved.
    I'm 10 months out -- I now have 1/2 slice thin crust mushroom pizza with light cheese -- and it's enough. I had 1/4 of a scone - screwed with my blood sugar, but I still make sure I get my protein grams in, and don't go over where my calories seem to be stable. I cook for my family/husband a lot -- and I "taste" as I cook, but seldom eat any when its time to sit down. I've learned the social part wasn't the eating.

    But I would be a bit afraid of a bag of anything! I think I'm best not tempting myself !

    I'm on day 3 of a 14 day liquid diet..preop. Like Jesse, I am REPULSED by the shakes, am exhausted, and very frustrated. I despise shakes and wish to God we could just do the protein bars...I'm sure I'd get sick of those too but you can gobble one up much faster! The shakes are SO NASTY...SO NASTY!!! Well, that's enough feeling sorry for myself I suppose. I only had one so far today and it's nearly 6pm...keep trying to power through but they make me gag. Called the doc and they said "suck it up"...well not exactly that, but they might as well have! LOL
