Foods you Can Eat During the Pre-op Stage Before Weight Loss Surgery
The pre-op diet for weight loss surgery can be extremely challenging. In my opinion, it is the most difficult stage of the entire journey. This is because you have to be on an extremely strict diet prior to the procedure and since you haven’t had the surgery yet, you are just as hungry as ever! You have to be able to resist foods and get control without the help of the surgery. It can be really difficult because you don’t have the tool of the surgery yet. However, it is important to follow the guidelines because the purpose of the pre-op diet is to shrink your liver prior to surgery. If you don’t do it, you could risk having complications.
