    Morning I’m 12 days post surgery so milk diet still fresh in my mind. Must haves are sugar free milk shakes, sugar free jelly & oxo cubes. I have to say my favourite was lamb as it had a hint of mint. I always saved the oxo for dinner so whilst everyone else was eating I didn’t feel left out. It worked most nights. I got the Harley’s sugar free jelly easy to make up & if you want a slight change you can dissolve the granules in small amount of boiling water then add milk from you allowance for a milky jelly.
    I found the first couple of days difficult then it was fine. It really prepares you for both surgery & post op too.

    Wishing you all the very best x

    Perfect, perfect answer: thanks Treeza. I would add maybe take a multivitamin and mineral tablet but I’m not sure if it is recommended anymore? I did it because as I was having a bypass I would have to do it for the rest of my life anyway so thought what the heck – start now!

    In truth, I think they are all equally as good as each other. I have had Centrum, Sanatogen Gold and the one there is a current shortage of and I can’t remember the name because I’m too tired haha! They all do the job 😉

    There is a sugar free mega store which has some yummy sugar free milk shakes. I’m not sure how to attach the link. Doodah posted it on here for me a few weeks ago. Crusha do sugar free milk shake but I couldn’t find any! Good luck x

    Hi Daniegant,

    I start my Milk diet on 7th! :dance: I also came on to the forum to find out more about the milk diet. Does anyone know of any sugar free milk shakes that are not Nestles?

    Also, when reading nutrition labels, remember that they are for ‘per 100g’. In the early stages you most probably won’t be able to eat 100g of anything so you can adjust it accordingly.

    As a rule of thumb for wls: less than 3% fat and less than 5% sugar/carbs. I take these numbers in my head with me everywhere. I don’t always abide by them – holidays for instance – but most days I will not exceed them. It seems to keep me at a nice level weight which doesn’t waver too much. I have a benchmark of 5 lbs: if I gain more than that for whatever reason, I go back to fresh, homemade soup for a week or two and it comes off.

    Hope that is helpful xx
