This protein is horrible

Sign in to follow this  


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.
