    Default Gaining weight on liquid pre op diet?!?!?

    My surgery is scheduled on Tuesday (June 18). I started my liquid pre-op diet on the 4th. I have been strict with it and have not veered off at all. I eat 200-800 calories per day through the meal replacement shakes, soups, puddings I purchased from drs clinic. I drink my 64 Oz minimum of water each day. And to top it off, Iíve been working my butt off around the house remodeling the kitchen AND chasing a three year old everywhere.
    The first week went very smooth. I dropped about 8 pounds. But the past 4 days, I have actually been gaining weight. I am nearly back up to the weight I was before my diet started. Iím not taking any new medications. I donít know what to think.
    Has anyone experienced this? My dr even cut my blood thinner shots Iíll have to take to one a day bc he thought I would be much less weight. Iím just at a loss

    Hi there

    This is probably very frustrating for you. Our bodies react to different things all the time - bodily functions and cycles can really mess with the scales.
    Stick to what your surgeon has planned for you. I'm sure everything will be ok.

    I lost during the pre-op diet, yet I'm the "slow loser type" and gain with almost every meds I take.
    But I was having 3 shakes and one low carb dinner (fish or chicken with green veggies) per day.

    what's your carb intake per day? it's not only about calories, it's also about carbs and some shakes and protein bars are way to high in carbs for some people like me.
    The lowest I could find was 15gr per shake, the one my clinic was selling was much higher and I knew my metabolism doen't do good with carbs so I got the other one online.
    I was in Asia for my surgery and my fellow sleevers didn't have my issues with carbs...

    I also did not use the shakes from the hospital, they were way too high in sugar and carbs.
    The ones I bought were (are, I still take them) 1,4 gram carbs per shake and 1,2 grams of sugars.
    22.4 grams of protein.
    English is not my first language anymore, so I may and do make mistakes in my spelling, or say things oddly. Please ask me, if you want any clarifications.

    I'm not sure you can buy it outside of the Netherlands, but it is the Whey Perfection from the Body&Fit shop.
    It comes in 22 flavors.
    https://www.bodyenfitshop.nl/whey-perfection/
    They may ship to the rest of Europe.

    Thanks for the link!
    Sounds great!! too bad I can't have whey...that's why I can't find those great low carbs, I have to go vegan, and it's always higher because of the peas..

    I just checked it is sold in France...hum....might want to try again!! I tried so many whey shakes, but who knows!!

    The shakes are 27g protein and 10g carbs... less than a gram of sugar.
    The past week I have only had 2-3 per day.

    I did however lose weight (according to the scale today), so hopefully I’m back on the downward slide again!
