I'm less than three days away from being banded. I have been feeling hungry since last night. This is real hunger with a growling stomach. It's getting difficult to choke the shakes down. I've been online today looking for some better ones that don't cost a fortune to ship to Canada. If anyone has any recommendations let me know.


Thursday cannot come too soon!

Congratulations and good luck with the band and your new journey.

I only do chocolate shakes. I use 8 oz of unsweetened vanilla almond milk, 1 scoop of powder (I use Body Fortress-under $17.) about 1 tea. of decaf instant coffee, about 1 tea. of peppermint extract and lots of ice and my shakes are great and very very thick like McDonald's or Wendy's. I have a small Hamilton Beach blender (under $20.) that is also the drinking cup. I have been drinking these for breakfast for almost 2 years and love them.

For ice, I have small ice cube trays so that the cubes are extremely small. I bought them at Bed Bath and Beyond for around $3. I use 1 whole tray for every shake.

Good luck and enjoy your shakes.
