    Hi there
    I've to have a fairly minor operation on Tuesday but i'll be having a general anaesthetic for it, would it be dangerous or unwise for me to be in ketosis for this?

    Thanks

    Hiya
    I had a minor operation back in october ,it was only a little cycst taken from my forhead.I had decided to start ss a couple of weeks before,whe I got the appt through my CDC said I had to come of the diet immediatly and couldn't restart for a cuple of weeks after(which actually turned into 3mths but thats another story LOL)

    I am sure a CDC will be along soon with beter advise but I am sure you can't SS whilst having an op

    You should not be SSing if you have an op coming up, or for 3 months after.
    Does your CDC know about your operation?

    no operation that involves general anaesthetic is "minor" ... they may use that word to distinguish from "major" but all such operations have an element of risk. Eat some protein and some sensible carbs as soon as you can because you are going to have to avoid food before the anaesthetic for (??? how many is it again?) 12 hours. Try to get your glycogen levels up as soon as you can

    Don't diet anymore!
    Official guidance is that you should be on a higher programme than a VLCD before the operation and then no diet for 3 months after the operation.

    Hence you shouldn't and won't be in ketosis if you are on the 1500 programme.
