Phase 2B: High Protein Liquid Meal Plan

You will be on this diet for 2 weeks after your surgery. 

​The Phase 2B meal plan is to be followed by all sleeve and gastric bypass patients for the 2-3 weeks following surgery. This meal plan includes liquids that are a good source of protein. The protein will allow you to lose body fat while preserving your muscle mass, which is the powerhouse of the body. 

The protein goal for Phase 2B is lower than for Phase 2A. After surgery, your stomach volume will be smaller and you may feel less hungry, so a higher protein goal may not be reasonable to achieve. 

Protein Goal: 40-60 grams/day 
Fluid Goal: 6-8 cups liquid/day
