It can be tough! Two weeks of just shakes can be dull. Check out opticook for some great pre-op friendly recipes!

Im having my op tomorrow and I didnt have to do the pre op diet. I didnt have to do it before my band either. I think its because I'm a relatively low BMI patient - just 30 now, and 33 when I was banded 13 years ago  I lost my band a year ago, but had been at a BMI of about 24 for years.  Have gained a stack of weight in the past six months which is why I've been approved at such a low BMI, but I guess that means my liver is unlikely to be problematically large.

However I do often have an optifast shake for breakfast. The way I do it is to make the shake and freeze in an ice cube container, then I add a bit of hot water and blend it when I want it. Makes it thick and creamy like a thick shake. Because I am just using them as a healthy breakfast, I blend frozen fruit in too. A favourite is the chocolate flavour blended with black coffee.
