    Premier Protein – Not Premier for Bariatric Patients!

    We need to use whey protein ISOLATE not CONCENTRATE.
  2. Weighed 274 when starting two week preop liquids. Sleeved 8-22-18, weighed 251.3 on op day and yesterday weighed 241.8, YAY!! Saw the surgeon and dietitian today and received a good report from both. Have been able to stop 4 medications for diabetes (3) and elevated cholesterol (1). I get to start having some stage 3 soft foods. Im really grateful for this progress and for all the sharing that takes place here! You go girl and guys!! Keep up the good work! Anybody know if Miralax is ok for sleevers? Got a little constipated...
  3. So sorry Megan!! I’ve had some sugar free Jello and tolerated it well. Guess it just depends on the person. Mel I’m only 2 wks. post op so can’t say I’ve had that happen yet. No problem with water, has to have ice though. So sorry for saygrace😟😧. Going for my first post op tomorrow...hopefully will be able to have some more foods. Blessings to all🙏🏻🎚😇

    August 2018 sleeve surgery!!

    My sleeve date is 8-22-18. Have waited soooooo looooong to get this done. I know it’s going to be hard but was thinking that it cannot be any where near as hard as living all these years as an obese person. Living through the bullying, shame, humiliation, rejection, physical problems, lack of good clothing and footwear choices, self recriminations, and....and.... Good job all! Fight the good fight! Get Gas X, walk a lot, ask for your pain meds, drink water. BTW- Premier protein is NOT a source of protein ISOLATE, it is a protein concentrate. We NEED the protein ISOLATE...better source of amino acids. I just learned about that. Have been using the Premier for a while 😩. Looking forward to our new selves!

    Protein Isolates vs Concentrates

    I just read about that too and saw that Premier protein is the concentrate form not the isolate. The isolate has better amino acids which are the building blocks of protein. I do not remember the science difference between the two but it’s significant. I have 2 Premier shakes left and I’m switching forevermore and AMEN!! BTW-the nutritionist I see was ok with Premier but I think I’ll bring it up now that I know about it.

    Help!!

    Would it be ok to use peppermint tea? I’ve found for myself in the past, peppermint is soothing to my stomach. Surgery date 8-22. Love all the experiences, tips and encouragement on here!! Thanks to all.
