Fantastic Calorie-Free Drinks in Pre-Op Bariatric Diet

Pre op Liquid Diet Drink Ideas

Would love your thoughts, please comment at the end of the post!

Some calorie-free options for drinks in the clear liquid pre-op bariatric diet are:

“Try some light or diet juices, zero calorie Powerade, Gatorade, decaf tea, decaf coffee, infused waters, crystal light.” – Katelyn JM (US-RD Nutritionist)

  • Vita Rain is a good option. It has 0 calories, 0 sugar, 0 carbs and some of our clients report it tastes much better than vitamin water zero.
  • Other options are Crystal Light and Propel.
  • You could also drink some water or mix one-fourth part orange juice with three-fourth parts water.
  • You could also have mint tea with zero calorie sweetener.

Nutritionist Suggests- Liquid Diet Drinks Before Bariatric Surgery

Our US-registered bariatric nutritionist recommends:

  • Decaf tea
  • Coffee
  • Diluted juice
  • Broth
  • Sugar-Free Jell-O
  • Sugar-Free Popsicles

You may not be able to find an actual “sugar-free” juice but avoid any sugar added varieties. Try to keep calories to less than 60 calories per cup (8oz).

Pre-gastric Sleeve Liquid Diet Ideas

In the pre-op gastric sleeve diet, you can do a low-calorie Gatorade (G2), Powerade 0, Crystal Light, diet juice (juice that has less than 30 calories for an 8 oz serving). Ocean Spray makes several varieties of diet juice, and many of theirs have five calories for an 8 oz serving.

According to pre-op diet guidelines by Oxford Radcliffe Hospitals, you should drink more in the hot weather. Remember, you aim to drink at least 2 liters of fluid on a daily basis, and you need to drink at regular intervals throughout the day.
