Ask Steph – I want to do a reset

 

What are the options for a post-op reset diet plan?

This blog is in response to a recent email I received. I knew she wasn’t alone in this question so I wanted to share my response for all to see!

Can you tell me where to find more info on Post-op diet…I want to do the “reset”

Great question! There are a few approaches to “reset” type of diets. The main goal, whichever direction you take, is to rid the body of starches (bread/pasta/rice) and sweets.

Some patients prefer to do the “Pouch Test” type of diet which is typically a 5 day routine starting with 2 days of protein shakes, 2 days of really soft protein foods like scrambled eggs and then back to solid protein.

Other reset diets are longer on shakes such as two weeks. I’ve had patients do a pattern of 3 shakes and 2 protein bars per day and did a small frequent eating pattern for two weeks.

I have other patients that cannot stand shakes and they make a clear meal plan focusing on protein and vegetables.

The first 5 days of getting starches and sweets out of your diet are the hardest. Tired, hungry, craving things. That’s part of the process so even if you have to eat some low fat cheese or shaved lunch meat to stay on it, it’s okay because at the end of the week your hunger comes way down and you feel back in control again.

It’s all about what you do next.

Whichever way you go, the biggest key of all is transitioning off the “reset” and on to a healthy post-op daily plan. 3 meals per day, protein and vegetables and water in between meals. This is really where the results pay off, the consistency in the long run.

I would even go as far as to say I wouldn’t weigh during a reset and focus more on clearing out the mind and the cravings. I hope that helps a little!

I do have a “Back on Track” video course for members to my website. You can watch the first video here – one of the videos talks about the different approaches to reset diet and includes some meal plans and shopping lists.

  2. @Lisa I hope I am following your question correctly. When you are in a video course on the main “course” page you will click the button that says “Start Taking this Course.” Then you click on a lesson to view. When you feel you’ve completed the lesson you click on “Complete Lesson” and it will automatically take you to the next lesson. Click these buttons will move the progress bar to show where you are and what’s been completed.

    If you have further questions please let me know!
