Well I can only tell you from my experience. I had lost 30 Kgs. during my 1st surgery just in 5 days. I could not even get up on my own, forget about
walking. Was reduced to bare 45 Kgs. Besides this I could not tolerate any solids or semi solids as they would get stuck in stoma and cause blockage. I was on liquid diet for over 3 months. The doc told me that I need 2300 calories per day and he made a diet chart for me. I do not say that the same may hold good for everybody as everyone has a different body constitution, but still it may guide others.
5.00 A.M. Tea with High Protein Biscuits
7.00 A.M. Milk with lot of Jaggery or diet supplement like complan
8.00 A.M. Fresh Citrus Juice
9.00 A.M. Fresh Pomengrate Juice
10.00 A.M. Fresh home made green gram and tomattor soup.
11.00 A.M. Banana Shake
11.30 A.M. and in between every meal. chocolate. I would eat half a kg dairy milk (without nuts) chocolate everyday.
1.00 .P.M. a little rest
2.00 P.M. again juice
3.00 some yogurt with jaggery
4.00 Tea with biscuits
5.30 Banana / Pears shake
6.30 Pomengrate Juice
8.30 Milk with complan or diet supplement and Jaggery
10.00 Milk and jaggery
Can you believe I gained 9 kgs in just 6 days with the said diet and could walk on my own on the third day itself. It was like miracle.
