jhawkchick75 Posted September 3, 2008 Report Share Posted September 3, 2008 OK, so i'm doing a modified version of the pre op diet to get some weight off before I really start the pre-op in October. I'm doing 2 Atkins shakes a day then a sensible dinner and some healthy snacks. I also started doing fitday.com which I LOVE! I love the chart that shows you exactly how many calories you have eaten and the graph showing how many carbs/proteins/fat you have had. But here is my question - on this pre-op diet I feel I am getting WAY too many carbs - am I just looking at it wrong? When I bought the shakes I made sure and got the ones that had a lower amount of carbs in them too. That is why I went with Atkins. But it still shows me as having like 25-30 percent of my diet each day being carbs. Is this OK? Just seems like a lot to me. I know this is what they recommend so am I just being paranoid?! I want to make sure and lose enough weight before my procedure and I just don't see how i'm going to with that many carbs in my diet. I have to lose at least 10lbs before the surgery. Thanks!!!
