Prior to your weight loss procedure you will be asked to go on a Very Low Calorie Diet (VLCD). This involves substituting your current diet with Meal Replacements such as OPTIFAST or OPTISLIM.
The aim of this pre-operative diet is to reduce the size of your liver substantially, so that Dr Hatzifotis is able to perform your procedure safely for you. When performing SLEEVE GASTRECTOMY, or GASTRIC BANDING, or GASTRIC BYPASS, the liver, which normally lays on the front of the stomach, has to be lifted up off the stomach in order for the surgeon to see the stomach and then perform your surgery on the stomach. If the liver is too heavy or too large as a result of steatosis, then it may be impossible to see the stomach clearly and therefore perform the procedure safely. While on OPTIFAST or OPTISLIM you may have up to 2 cups of low-starch, low-carbohydrate vegetables per day. You are NOT allowed starchy vegetables (potato, sweet potato and pumpkin), legumes (baked beans and lentils), bread, fruit and yoghurt. Immediately following your weight loss procedure, Dr Hatzifotis and your dietician will instruct you to modify your diet for the first 4 weeks.
You will be asked to adhere to a LIQUID FOOD DIET for the first 2 weeks folllowing your procedure.
Once you have completed 2 weeks of a liquid diet following your procedure, you will upgrade to a PUREE FOOD DIET for the next 2 weeks. Your dietician will provide you with written instructions about every phase of your post operative diet. Following the 2 week liquid diet phase, your diet will be upgraded to puree food for the next two weeks.
Once again your dietician will guide you through this phase and provide you with written instructions about this phase of your diet. Usually 4 weeks after your weight loss procedure you will be instructed to upgrade onto solid foods. By this stage you are becoming familiar with your new eating patterns and behaviours and the new feeling and signals from your stomach. You will have less hunger between meals, and you will be satisfied for longer after a meal.
Your dietician will guide you through this final phase of your diet and provide you with useful information regarding eating slowly, chewing your food well, controlling your food portions, and maintaining a well balanced healthy, low fat, low sugar diet. By this phase of your diet, we aim to have you eating solid, nutritious food, but less of it. Debby Knox’s first weight loss motivation started in 1987 when she found her clothes too tight for her so she joined into Weight Watcher weight loss program instantly.

What we can learn: always find a workout pal with you or join into groups with people who can encourage each other and do workout with each other.
Debby’s plan was to lose 20 pounds, but the result is much better than she thought, so far she has lost 45 pounds and she prepared to lose another 5 pounds. The benefits of taking 100 grams protein per day is to get necessary protein taken in according to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention guideline, (amount of protein for women between the ages of 19 and 70 is 46 grams, take in more when actively doing workout) and another advantage is proteins keep you from being hungry by decreasing sugar cravings.
