Sounds like alot of people have trouble with the protein shakes. Keep trying different brands and flavors until you find one you can tolerate.

I use EAS vanilla soy protein mix, 8oz lowfat milk and 1 tblespn Hill Bros Cappuccino-french vanilla, and 1 tblespn lowfat natural peanut butter. This makes two or three meals for me, and I love the flavor.

I have had the same problem. I drank Pure Protein 100% Whey Frosty Chocolate for about 7 months pre-op. Every day for breakfast and sometimes for lunch. NO problem. During the pre-op phase, I was put on "New Direction" and they were horrendous to me. I bought a few "Muscle Milk Light" to switch out for them and it was tolerable.

After surgery I was on the Isopure, (they are not that great). The Green Tea was doable if I added MIO to it.

When released back to Protein shakes I was so happy & excited. As it slid down it would come back. The taste changed, it became like drinking the most horrible thing, almost like a disgusting chocolate Elmers Glue to me. Even brushing my teeth made me sick. I tried GNC Protein Shakes, I tried, Unjury chicken stuff, Unjury Unflavored and made my own shakes, I tried every muscle milk light or non-light. I tried stuff called Lean and each one, was horrible to me.

I just started being able to tolerate (barely) the Pure Protein Shakes. My taste buds changed, something changed, but I understand.

Right after surgery it got the point I was in tears because I can't really afford to keep buying and hating new Protein Shakes. I have two HUGE tubs of the Pure Protein. It's disheartening.

I am hoping eventually I'll start liking them again. As I can, I'll just buy small amounts of different brands until I can find something that doesn't make me gag. Sad but true, I used love my shakes so much and I never thought my tastes would change that much.

You might try the protein shakes that GNC carries... they have quite a few low carb / zero carb types and RTD's. And they have a 30 day money back guarantee. I like the Isopure Zero Carb... and they have lots of flavors.

We want you to be fully satisfied with every item that you purchase from www.gnc.com. If you are not satisfied with an item that you have purchased, you may return the item within 30 days from the order date for a full refund of the purchase price, minus the shipping, handling, gift wrap, or other charges.

The item must be returned, unused or used, in good condition, in original boxes (whenever possible), and with all paperwork and accessories to ensure full credit.I

Hi if you are near a Sams stores there is a great whey protein you can mix it with your favorite fruit and a lot of ice. This might help and hang in there. I use lots of strawberries and 1/2 of a banana and its really good.
