Default Surgery Diet

Hey folks,

my wife has qualified to have the stomach surgery to try and help her lose weight. Before she has the surgery she will spend 3-4 weeks on a fasting diet where she has nothing but "Optifast" drinks. They are a prescription only drink.

I myself have about 85lbs to lose and need to get back on track. I want to do everything that I can possibly do to help out my wife on her journey so for the 3-4 weeks I would also like to do the fasting diet.

I have read online that "Boost Plus" is basically the same thing as Optifast, it was developed by the same company and does not require a prescription.

I am looking to get some more information on doing this and any advice? During the week I eat lunch at work so I could modify it slightly to have a meal and snacks at work, but I would like to keep it as close to hers as possible so we are going through it together.

Thanks in advance for information on this!
