Question I need some HELP over here

Okay new poster here with lots and lots of questions...First, a little info I am 24, about 60 pounds overweight and I need KNEE Surgery...So the surgeron told me that I needed to lose 30 pounds and then she would do the surgery...Surgery is scheduled December 18th and I need to have it off by December 1st for the pre-op stuff...
She then put me on a high protein very low carb diet which consists mostly of protein shakes 4x a day and then maybe a salad with some chicken or tuna with ranch or blue cheese if I am hungry (which I am not by the way)
I exercise about 4x a week not to hard cardio because of my knee but mostly resistance training..I have already lost 6 pounds...But, I don't want this to put me in startvation mode...I mean I am getting about 720 cals a day with about 6 grams of carbs if I just do the shakes a little more with the salad...I also drink about 100 oz of water a day...I take a multi-vitamin and also Mega L-Carnitine once a day...

Has anyone heard of trying to lose weight this way??? I don't want to hurt my body but, I need to have this surgery I have been in constant pain for almost 5 months...She says that she has had a lot of sucess with other patients even one who lost 40 pounds in 6 weeks!!!!!

Any info would be great thanks!!!

Hey, I have never tried the shakes so i cant say if that works or not. I have been on a low fat diet and exercising for about 2months now and i have lost 30 lbs. as of last Sunday. Havent weighed this week yet!Talk to your doctor and see if this would be a good idea for you.

Wow thanks for the info dietgirl!!! I though I was the only one on this type of diet and I have got a lot of people who say that it is really bad for you but, you know what...I feel better than I ever have...I exercise harder too....Well, keep me posted on your weight loss and I will do the same...How many shakes do you have a day???? How long did it take you to lose 20 pounds??? As of this morning I have lost 8 in about 3 weeks..Not as good as I had hoped but, in the beginning I cheated A LOT...but, know I am sticking to it shake for shake!!!! I do have a salad every once in a while...

Good Luck
DeeDee
