Question Why the different Pre-Op Diet?

Okay..so Ive been reading through the Pre-Op diet and according to my Dr. he wants me to do : 1 protein shake for breakfast, 1 protein shake for lunch and 1 green salad with 1 serving of lean meat and 1 serving of fat free dressing plus lots of water.

What I am confused about is: How come some people are on a 14 day diet like mine and how come others are on a complete liquid protein diet for 14 days to a month???

Also, I have the beginnings of non-alcoholic fatty liver disease and I have read that people who have that should try and lose as much weight as possible before surgery...so how come I am not on a more restricted diet like others???????

So confusing.
