a. Clear Liquid Diet. This diet is indicated for the postoperative patient's first
feeding when it is necessary to fully ascertain return of gastrointestinal function. It may
also be used during periods of acute illness, in cases of food intolerance, and to reduce
colon fecal matter for diagnostic procedures.
(1)  The diet is limited to fat-free broth or bouillon, flavored gelatin, water, fruit
drinks without pulp, fruit ice, Popsicles, tea, coffee or coffee substitutes, and sugar. No
cream or creamers are used. Carbonated beverages may be included when ordered by
the physician; however, they are often contraindicated.
(2)  The standard menu mat (DA Form 2902-15R) provides approximately

nutrients tabulated except for Vitamin C (ascorbic acid). If the patient is to be on clear
liquids for an extended period of time, the portion sizes should be increased or an
accepted enteral formula may be provided.
b. Full Liquid Diet. This diet is used when a patient is unable to chew or swallow
solid food because of extensive oral surgery, facial injuries, esophageal strictures, and
carcinomas of the mouth and esophagus. It may be used to transition between a clear
liquid and a regular diet for the post-surgical patient.
