Liquid Diet

Wondering what I can have on my liquid diet?  

  • Carb free, sugar free protein shakes. There are about 17g of protein per shake.
  • Crystal light.  
  • Low sodium chicken broth
  • Low sodium beef broth
  • Diet Snapple
  • Water
  • Unsweet tea
  • Sugar free Jello
  • Small salads after day 3 (once a day)

My mother went through this in November of 2011.  Her band was placed in December of 2011.  Since then, she has lost almost 60 pounds!  I am going to be relying  on her to get me through this liquid diet phase.  I am thankful to have someone to support me.  

I know that the first few days will be difficult.  I will be working some of those days in the ER.  Someone is always having a birthday or a doctor is bringing donuts.  I will have to really keep control of myself.  I am serious about losing weight and I want to do whatever is necessary to accomplish my goal.   

I have heard that some people lose up to 15 pounds while on the 2 week liquid diet.  I think my mom did.  That would be nice to have a 15 pound head start on the band.  


  1. I lost 13 in my 2 weeks. I felt amazing just accomplishing that much!! Good Luck Wendy!! I know you can do it!!!

  2. I destroyed my body with a crash diet over a year ago. That summer I ended up with an abnormal heart beat, and chest inflammation, and fibromyalgia flaring more days than not to mention diabetic, a screwed up female cycle that is STILL not back to normal and a year after lost a pregnancy. I am a mess. All this to say, you know yourself best, just take care. I thought I knew what I could handle, I was wrong, so so wrong. Oh and one last thing... make sure all those sure free drinks are aspertame free ok! Thinking of you and your fabulous self!

  3. Kim, I am sorry you had such a hard time with it. I hope my experience goes smoother.
