5 day pouch test

I have read lots of people mentioning the 5 day pouch test, but I am confused......

What is the 5 day pouch test?
How do you do the 5 day pouch test?
When do you do the 5 day pouch test?
What are the benefits to the 5 day pouch test?

I know, I know lots of questions but I am really confused.

It's a pouch reset rather than a test. It's only purpose is to allow you to break away from any poor food choices that you may have been making for five days. To give you a chance of getting back on track, and contrary to popular belief it will not shrink your pouch.

It's also only for those people who are say 18 months plus post op who might have been slipping back to poor eating habits.

Thank you it all makes sense now. I was starting to think I must be the only person on here that doesn't know what it is.

Really? You are kidding right? I've never read that on any forum, or heard any dietitian say that until now. In fact the medical advice given by a doctor on another forum I use said even twelve months out is far is too soon.

Anyone who needs to do a pouch reset after just six months is unlikely to get much benefit from it. If you are already making bad food choices after such a short period of time you're in real trouble.

That's according to the 5dpt book Karl. A lot of people need the kick up the backside earlier especially if they've fallen in to the 6 month carb and cr@p trap, were you can get away with eating carbs and junk in the first 6 months and still lose weight, but then after the golden period it doesn't work so easily!

I completely agree that you shouldn't need to do the 5dpt that early out, but unfortunately some do.

I understand that view, I read of people on here wanting to rush the liquid or puree stage and I really dispair for them, they are future failures in waiting, but the general (Including medical and dietry) advice is 18 months is the earliest time that the 5DPT should be considered. Think about it, if your weight loss has stalled, then entering a period of relatively low calorie consumption is likely to enforce any stall.


It also puts us right back on the futile cycle of eating crap then starvation dieting at a very early stage in our post op journey. Five days of strict dieting might cause some weight loss, (Though most of it would be fluid loss) so they celebrate with cup cakes and chcolate The same distructive cycle that got us huge in the first place.


I would suggest that the type of person who feels they need the pouch reset (I hate the term "pouch test" as it really tests the willpower not the pouch) at just six months out is the last person who should do it, why? well because it puts them right back where they were pre op; Yoyo dieting and eating crap. If they have failed to follow the plan at six months out they need to get back to their NUT and talk it through. I have friends in the USA who go through the test every couple of months and they fail it everytime because it's not the pouch that needs to be reset but their heads


My advice such as its worth, follow the post op plan, use the honeymoon period to break the hold food had on you and you will never need the reset. Not easy I know, in fact its chuffin hard, but its the key to lifelong success


OK I'm getting light headed now so I'm going to step off this lofty pedastal before I fall off

The pre op psychological assessments carried out in the UK are a joke. How many times do you see people on forums asking is it ok to eat eat pizza three weeks out if they only have one slice, or can I drink alcohol at week four

We had one idiot at a support group meeting who was boasting that he had eaten KFC crap at week three WLS is littered with people who are simply not mentally equipped to handle the rigours of post op life

Only NHS patients have the opportunity to seek advice from a psych. Private patients can choose to have the op and actually have the op within a month of that decision.

It's not a perfect system, but until the NHS acknowledges that bariatric surgery is life and money saving, that is how things will stay.

I went to two different trusts, with a BMI of over 50, but high cholesterol, high blood pressure and insulin resistance meant nothing so I had no choice but to go private.

I agree that the pouch test should not need to be completed early on, however I am certain that there are post oppers out there that would benefit from a proverbial kick up the butt.

Personally I know why I overeat and am lucky to have a low threshold for sugar. I physically cannot tolerate anything naughty. However I am not naive enough to think that this may not change.

Additionally I am not naive enough to assume that the bad habits that I have developed and used for over half my life will magically disappear following surgery. Therefore having a safety net such as the pouch test is a valuable tool in anyone's weight loss journey, if only for the aforementioned kick up the butt!

Sorry Karlos I thought I'd join you on the soap box.

I think that part of the problem is that people see it as just 5 days. Then back to 'normal' with, at best, good intentions. The point of it is that every day afterwards is day 5, but most people don't get that. Unfortunately a lot of people attempt it without having researched it and not really understanding the process.

Unfortunately the psychological side of wls is sorely lacking. I had absolutely no psycho assessment pre-op apart from a few questions about the way I eat with the dietician. I paid privately for cbt and that helped a lot and has enabled me to stay on track 18 months post op. Most of our problems are in the head with old patterns well established that need breaking and to not deal with this is like having an op without a pre-op assessment.
