Hi Val if I can find my pre op diet sheets I will share them with you. My pre op diet was different from most I actually got to eat real food. It was a lot of tuna, chicken and eggs but for seven days you had your meal planned. I had to do it for two weeks and it wasn't too bad. I was also aloud to substitute things as long as it was with something along the same lines of what I didn't want. Example would be a banana swapped for an apple or baked beans with garbanzo beans. Never mind I did find it so instead of rewriting this I will just post it here.
Day 1: Breakfast- 1 scoop protein powder and 8 oz skim milk (was a loud 1%)
Lunch- 1 and a half hard-boiled eggs, 1tablespoon of low fat mayo, and 1 small banana. I always added pickles and onions to this.

So this was my pre surgery fast as they called it I did this for the two weeks before my surgery. I lost 15 lbs during those weeks. I did substitute a few things because of issue I have with the foods but I stayed with in the calories and the same food group. Also the protein powder guide my Dr. used was Unjury protein powder which has 20 grams of protein per scoop. The first three days were the hardest but after that it wasn't too bad and I would check with your Dr. to see if this would work for you. Also I don't know you medical history and this might not be ok with your medical needs so please check with your Dr. before following.
