Default Pre-Op Diet

Some other sergeons in BC make you do a full liquid diet, Dr. Sampath and Dr. Nguyen, together with Nooshin (the Dietician) at Garret Wellness create a pre-op diet for you, mine looks like this and is for 14 days:

Breakfast:
1/3c Oatmeal (150cals)
1 Glucerna (230cals?)

Snack:
1 Source Greek Yogurt (50cals)
10 grapes (99cals)

Lunch:
Pre-Made Safeway Salad (Safeway Farms, Mediteranian, 180 cals)

Snack:
1 Small Apple

Dinner:
3c of Low Sodium Chicken Broth
1c Onions, Carrots, Celery
4oz Chicken

Snack:
Jello Sugar Free Butterscotch pudding cup (60cals)
3tbsp Light Cool Whip (30 Cals)

Because the Garrett Wellness program is a process that helps you make life changes well in advance of surgery, many of these items are standard for me. As a matter of fact, the only change is my dinner which is usually slightly bigger and I do not have a glucerna at all right now. As a matter of fact, my dietician stuggled to make me eat more :| This is about 1150 calories and I've been consistantly eating 1200-1300 calories a day right now for the past 2 months
