I went to the hospital today for my mandatory nutrition class. There were about twenty others in the class and one dietician. The dietician spoke on what we would need to do before, during and after surgery. Most of the attendees like myself were already on the OptiFast two-week diet. We learned that for several weeks after we would have to take protein supplements and eat “mushy”. Nothing I didn’t already know. I have heard and read all this before.
I have been prepared to give up food and do the “mushy” thing after surgery. I thought I was prepared to do the OptiFast… Let me tell you, it isn’t the greatest!
The day of the Nutrition class was my last day on regular food. I tried to make the best of it with a steak dinner served with some yummy snow crab legs. Honestly, I have been packing in all my favorites for about two weeks. I’m so sick of food that nothing tastes that great anymore.
