What does the pre-surgery diet consist of?
Pre surgery diet
Prior to having the operation we recommend that you follow our pre-operative very low calorie diet (also commonly known as the liver reducing diet) to minimise risk and to prepare you for the lifestyle change required after the surgery. We have a food-based, calorie and portion controlled diet option or a meal replacement (Optifast) option. Our dietitian will be happy to support you through this period of preparation.
Check out our ‘Pre-Op’ Pinterest board for lots of great recipe ideas for the low starch vegetables included as part of this plan.
