Default surgery count down: Need to stay away from salt, sugar, fat, caffeine.

I'm having surgery on Tuesday and I have been struggling with the junk food for the last 2 weeks really badly. For the best results, I need to stay away from salt, sugar, fat, caffeine. I thought maybe creating a count down thread would help keep me away from it. Right now I want to have
Possible Trigger
I have means, mode, and a plan of acquisition of said food. I need to not execute said plan.

I did just finish eating about 2 hours ago a full meal, so I am not hungry.

47 hours and counting

real foods

No things like burgers/fries, candy, milkshake, soda, coffee....chips

Can haves.. fruits, veggies, meat, rice, water... lots and lots of water

I didn't make it though, had a slice of cake last night. I didn't have jack in the box and really the salt would be the worse of the 4, followed by caffeine. It's all about managing inflammation/swelling. I'm going to have 4 drains and I will have to keep them as long as my body keeps producing fluids - so any retained water.

The sugar just doesn't help the healing and encourages bad bacteria.

25 hours and counting.
