Water soluble diet of lettuce, celery, broccoli, green pepper and no sugar jello. For the veggies it is only 2 cups a day. We have to follow this with 6-8 glasses of water a day. This is our one month prep for surgery. She has had surgery before and been on optifast before..why is she gaining and what can be done to get her back on track?

Veggies are good, but 2 cups a day with lots of water is depleting body of vitamins and minerals. So the body is in starvation mode and holding on to everything it can. Better to do recipes on Biggest Loser, or see certified nutritionist - NOT dietician.
