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:

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

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

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

1 Small Apple

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

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
