Bariatric Surgery Pre-Op Meal Plan

  • This meal plan should be followed for two weeks prior to your operation.
  • This meal plan consists of four meal replacements and one solid food meal per day (except for the day before surgery). The one meal should consist of protein and vegetables.
  • Space your meal replacement shakes and one solid food meal evenly throughout the day. Have your meal or a shake every 3-4 hours.
  • Take one multi-vitamin daily.
  • Drink 64 ounces of calorie-free/very low-calorie (less than five calories per serving) sugar-free fluids daily.
  • Avoid caloric beverages such as alcohol, juice, regular soda, Gatorade, and sweet tea.
  • Do not add fruit or milk to any of the meal replacements.
  • If you are using powdered shake mix, use water to mix your shakes (not milk or juice).
