Clear Liquid Diet For All Procedures

Consume only a clear liquid diet the day before your procedure unless you are instructed by your physician to do otherwise.
A clear liquid is one you can see through, these include:

  • Black coffee, tea, you may use sugar, sugar substitute, honey, lemon, but no milk or non-dairy creamers.
  • Clear fruit juices, apple, apple combinations, cranberry, cranberry combinations, dark or white grape juice. NO citrus juice.
  • Beef, chicken, vegetable broth or consomm√©, NO bouillon cubes.
  • All sodas, non-carbonated beverages such as ice tea, crystal light lemonade, seltzer, and sport drinks such as Gatorade.
  • Jell-O, Italian ices, Popsicles and hard candy such as lifesaver.
  • PLEASE avoid all RED flavors of any of the items listed above other than cranberry juice. Cranberry juice is a natural red and does not tint the bowel a color that might raise alarm.
  • Drink, drink, drink! The better hydrated you keep yourself the better you will feel.
