Two Week Liquid Diet before LapBand Surgery
What happens if you don't stick to just liquids during the two week liquid diet before your surgery?
The purpose of the low calorie, high protein pre-surgery diet
is to shrink your liver.
Often surgeons prescribe an all-liquid diet pre surgery in order to take the guesswork out of what to eat.
If you get sick of liquids and find yourself nibbling on a few solid "real" foods, nothing bad will happen. However, you should make sure whatever "real" food you're eating is low in calories!
Avoid "the last supper" mentality and binge eating on high fat, high calorie foods pre surgery!
