Tomorrow morning I start my 6 week pre-op liquid diet. It is sort of my own private Lent. I will be abstaining from the sinful pleasures of delicious and appealing food for the next 42 days. That’s two days more than Lent.
My primary food source is Optifast: 3 shakes, 2 nutrition bars and 2 bowls of soup. The photo on the left is a week’s supply. I get to supplement this with 2 servings of sugar free Jell-O and a sugar free Popsicle. I round this off with at least 8 cups of water. I somehow think this is going to become pretty boring. As Brett has told me, I will lose my taste for Jell-O and popsicles for a long time.
