This protein is horrible

So..a woman at my mother's job had samples for me to try months ago. They were fine with milk...

 

But with water and food? Disgusting.

 

I have a tub of vanilla & cinnamon bun.(Mixed together because it looked like i have less to take this way, lol) I put it in a small glass now and hold my nose, trying to choke it down. If i don't take it, i'm out $30.

 

I'm waiting on unflavored UNJURY to come in, for my clear liquid stage next week.

 

5 more days until surgery.

I guess I was lucky at my 1st try with tasting protein shakes. I got a 4 pack of EAS carb control chocolate at Walmart - and if you like chocolate, they are pretty good, just a little thinner than I like. So I tossed in a scoop of some powdered chocolate protein I already had and made it a little thicker and chocolatier (is chocolatier a word? :-P)

Anyway, later on I tried Premier Protein chocolate shakes - I had to buy a 12 pack to test them out - and they are even better than EAS, but I still throw in a scoop of the powdered chocolate protein - I just like the thicker feeling. I tried not to go too overboard with my purchasing and just stuck with the basics. I had previously counted on the reduced food bills as part of recovering the cost of surgery over the next 3 to 5 years.

Try not to get too caught up in the excitement of trying new flavors of protein shakes or you may wind up with a bunch of product that you don't eat, wasted money, and get discouraged. You'll only be on the shakes for a short time before your doctor is going to want you to get your nutrition from solid food.

I have a list of proteins, and those two are on the list. I've been writing down a lot of stuff from the forums here and from chat. I wish i found this place before i bought protein, lol.
