  1. First off I don't like Quest bars. I do however love the chocolate chip cookie dough bars from Slim 4 Life (I did that program a few years ago with limited temporary success). So I have a stash of those bars on standby when I crave a sweet something but I try to limit to one a week at most. The premier shakes are much lower carbs than the bars so I justify them as a breakfast easier than as a supplement or snack. I do think it's critical to meet at least 60g protein a day and an egg or yogurt for my breakfast always make me short at the end of the day. Thanks for the chat!
  2. Well your quote sounds straight out of my binder. I'm with KC Bariatric and our NUT Laura says I shouldn't lean on the shakes so much but as long as I'm not hungry and snacking before lunch it's ok. I get on avg between 60-70 grams of protein a day with half of that of course from my shake. On days I don't do a shake I usually eat a yogurt for breakfast which is less protein and more carbs.
  3. I should add my stats. HW 295, SW 275, CW 220. Age 46 5'8".
  4. I still drink a ready to drink Premier shake for my easy grab and go breakfast at least 5 days a week. I don't hate them like some people do. It's easy way to get 30g of protein with only 5g carbs to start my day on a good balance. I'm never hungry in morning and I'm good until lunch. But many say that at this point I should be getting my calories and protein from solid foods only to improve satiety. Thoughts? Others at 5 months in same boat?
  5. So the gallbladder thing. Is that something you need to do or is it elective and why? Just curious.

    What can you share about your experience? Anything unique about it that I should know? I've only met him one on one in that first consult. He presented at the seminar I attended and I liked him then. Since then it's just been the nutritionist, psych doc, and my case worker (via email only). I won't see Hamilton again until my 2 week pre op appt.
