You will be on a very low calorie diet for a minimum of two weeks before your surgery. This diet reduces the size of your lives so that the surgeons have better access to your stomach.

Meditrim® is a very low calorie, high protein supplement that will be provided to you. You can have 3 products each day. Meditrim comes in powder form, which you will prepare with water following the instructions on the package. It comes in chocolate flavour. You may also add it to coffee or try this recipe:

Mocha Cooler

  • 1 packet Meditrim® Chocolate powder, powder form
  • 375 ml coffee, prepared and cooled
  • ½ cup (125 ml) chopped ice

Option 1 – Pour coffee into blender. Add contents of Meditrim® packet and ice. Blend on medium speed for 10 seconds.
Option 2 – Prepare as above without ice. Freeze 1 ½ to 2 hours or until semi-solid. Place in blender and blend until slush consistency.

Meditrim® also comes in bar form.

You will receive 2 shakes and one bar for every day that you are on this diet. If preferred, you may have 3 shakes and no bars. You may not receive only bars as they do not contain as much as protein as the shakes.

In the first 24 hours of surgery, you can take small amounts of clear liquids. You can try water, tea or coffee, and juice.

1 day to 2 weeks after surgery, you can try clear or cream soups with no noodles or chunks, and-yogurt.
