Started the pre-op diet today. Tried breakfast with cream of wheat. Not happening. I gagged big time and I used to love cream of wheat. Had to give it to the dogs and get a small bowl of cereal. So far thats my only hiccup on the pre-op diet.
breakfast is cereal hot or cold with 8 oz of milk
Lunch is cottage cheese, crackers of my choice(wheat thins) and a small fruit
Dinner is grilled chicken, 1 serving of hot vegetable, 1 serving pasta or rice or potato.
The vegetable is a either or with salad(don't really care for them) or two servings of cold vegetables. The chicken can be swapped out for a lean meat. The cottage cheese for half a sandwich.
Then 5 days before surgery I am to switch to the liquid diet.
Does anyone know why the chicken has to be grilled? I love mine baked.
