Is there such a thing as too many liquids


Recommended Posts

I am drinking liquids and drinking soup all day long, am I over doing it?

What stage are you in? Clear liquids or creamy soups? Are you getting soup-logged?

I know we still have to watch the calorie intake while on the liquid/mushy phase of the pre-op diet. Supplement soup with yogurt, jello, popcicles, change it up a bit or you will just want to barf everytime you see soup!

Good luck, Cathy

I'm on the creamy soup stage

I can just image how hard that's going to be for me...I am not a big fan of creamy soups at the best of times.

I have surgery tommorrow...and look forward to jello and popcicles...and a bit of broth here and there for a few days. Do what you can to get through is my philosophy...make sure you take your vitamins too...I feel shaky if I don't.

Best of luck, ttys Cathy

Hi Sphynxmomma,

Just sip all day. I was worried I wasn't getting enough protein so I emailed Dr Miranda.

She said sip as much as you want especially as this time is for healing and if we happen to lose weight that is a bonus.

I ended up having a shake for breakfast, soup for lunch and another protein shake in the pm.

In between I also added popsicle, yop and water.

Hope this helps
