    Morning all, so today is my last day of eating anything... tomorrow is the first day of my liver shrinking diet, I’m on it for 3 weeks, any tips? Advise? I know the liver shrinking varies , I’ve been told to have 2-3 pints of semi skimmed milk, 2 yoghurts, sugar free jelly, 2 portions of fruit and 2 portions of veg a day.... now I’d rather stick to the same thing so I’m thinking of knocking the fruit and veg on the head... bit of mixed advise from my end e.g 2 portions of veg (make a mixed veg curry) sooo id rather not over step the mark and get the same thing everyday then I know I’m on the right path x

    I would personally have the fruit and veg as it will help you stop getting constipated, which it common with LRD diets. Making a curry is a good idea, as long as you only use curry powder and not out of a jar. Also make sure you space your food out during the day evenly so you don't get hungry and keep yourself topped up. I put a chicken oxo cube in a pint if milk with a little curry powder and herbs, it tastes like cuppoa soup, that was my saviour as I was only allowed milk and SF jelly. You can make your jelly with milk instead of water too. Good luck. x

    I agree with @Sarnie. Don't miss your fruit and veg, everything they tell you to eat if important for a reason so it's best to follow the plan as closely as possible.
    I start mine Wednesday but I'm doing food as I figure I'll be having enough liquid stuff post op lol

    Unfortunately for me they said they don’t give us the option up here you have to do the milk diet, I’ll give it a whirl but I’d rather keep it simple..

    I had no choice either, at Luton we have to do the milk, 4 pints semi skimmed, 1 sachet sugar free jelly or 3 pots, 1 OXO drink and that’s it.. no fruit allowed, it’s surprisingly easy to be honest but as others have said the fruit will help with your bowels so if your allowed it I’d have it, also drink plenty of water, at least 2 litres more if you can.
    I set my alarm for every few hours to drink half a pint, I used some of my allowance to make a milky coffe, some to make a milk jelly and I use some with a chicken OXO too which is delicious.
    Very good luck, keep in touch, so exciting for you xxx

    Nerves are perfectly normal, it’s a huge change to our life and it’s for life but your going to just fine, you’ll have good days and you’ll have bad days but the good far outweigh the bad. I’m excited for you xx

    Apparently the milk diet gets much easier after day 3/4 so hopefully your excitement will get you through the worst of it xx

    Day one is almost over I’ve not felt hungry once, the more annoying side of it is my body around 3:30pmish started feeling crappy and dizzy and this has continued going to head off to bed shortly and try rest

    Breakfast:- banana milkshake (1 banana 1 pint milk)

    Lunch:- pint of milk and a low fat yoghurt

    Tea :- veg medley (kale,spinach asparagus) 1 pint of milk and a yoghurt

    Pre bed :- one small pot sugar free jelly
