Best pre-op diet before gastric sleeve?

Hello. I want to know what's the best pre-op diet to be on before my gastric sleeve surgery. I've heard low carb a lot or all vegetables and fruits. What diet do you recommend? Thank you.

There is no "best" diet before weight loss surgery

The best diet is the one you can stick with.  After your surgery, you will be on a high protein low carb diet, so it might make sense to start that now so you can get used to it.  But in general, I tell my patients to go on a diet that worked for them in the past.
