I have recently had my initial consultation at Luton and Dunstable, I am due to see the consultant on 22nd Feb and then the nurse on 13th March to discuss a milk diet. Can anyone tell me what to expect?
Honestly the milk diet, once you get over the initial shock of it, isn't too bad. The first week for me was difficult in that I still have to fix meals for my family. It made me mad and frustrated that I couldn't join them. Also, my brain kind of freaked out by not eating solid foods, but once I started realizing the difference between genuine hunger pains and head hunger that eased off considerably. I have been shocked at how infrequently I actually experience genuine hunger. Also, drinking lots of water helps a lot. The milk diet takes out any need to really think about food, which in some ways is nice and makes things easier.Hi thanks for your reply, especially the bit about the milk diet that I am dreading!
I am from Essex so I did my tier 2 here and my
first appointment at L&D to start my tier 3 sounds pretty much the same as yours Bling but it looks as though I’m seeing the consultant before being out on the milk diet? I do have other health conditions so that could be why?
What happens when the milk diet is finished?(okiegirl ...8 weeks???? OMG! )
Are we given another plan to follow after that? I was given a good diary but the dietician told me to fill it out for the 2 weeks before going back to see her and I don’t know when that will be. I can imagine the consultant will be interested in seeing it! Xx
Hope your son is better now xxWell, what a fortnight. My 15 year old was rushed in with appendicitis and my weight exceeded to max weight to sleep on the put up bed to stay over night. So I spent 2 nights in a chair pretending to be comfortable.
My surgery cannot come quick enough... I’m am so done with my weight affecting EVERYTHING!!!
