Anyone tried this stuff?



Recommended Posts

BSN Lean Dessert Protein powder? Anyone? Its not a bad price and their flavors sound good. But at the end of the days it still a Protein Powder, so I'd love some input from anyone that has tried it.

Also, what is your favorite Syntax nectar flavor?

I actually had some of the chocolate Fudge pudding flavor mixed with skim and a few frozen strawberries for Breakfast today and it was de-vine!

I have the fuzzy navel flavor of the nectar which is good but I have a hard time mixing it with anything but oj. Mixing it in Water makes it taste like tang. Oj + nectar + frozen strawberries = nummy but easily tiresome (at least for me).

Hope this helps!

I haven't tried any of that stuff. The shakes make me sick on my stomach because of the consistancy...this a pre-surgery issue. I've been going to The Vitamin Shoppe and Vitamin World and gettting their Potein drinks that are like Gatorade. I really like them and they are a great option if you are sick of shakes. They can get expensive, but if you get a membership card to either of those stores you automatically get a discount from that point on.

I got a sample pack of Syntrax Nectar and I hate them! Maybe mixed with juice they would be better, but mixed with Water thay are horrible! I was so disappointed because they sounded like a good alternative to always drinking the other kinds of shakes.

I did like the cappuchino and vanilla creme flavors that were sent with the fruit flavored shakes.

I'm with you. I too, ordered the sample pack. Couldn't stand any of them.

I had a sample of this in the Peanut Butter and banana flavour, it just about made me vomit. It was really thick and gluggy and hideously sweet. I cannot for the life of me see the point of making a supposed "health supplement" taste so sweet.

I dont like Protein shakes as a general rule though, apart from one Musashi one you can get here, which I will very occasionally have for Breakfast.< /p>

I got two samples of the Lean Dessert with my Bariatric Eating sample pack. My husband tried the chocolate coconut one and said it was nasty. I haven't gotten the courage up to eat the cinnamon roll one yet. I hope it's not as bad as he made it out to be, because that sounds like a flavor that has a lot of potential.

I like the cinnamon roll and the banana nut bread. Vita coast has the best price.. like 14 bucks for a 18 scoop container. I love them... But some of the other flavors I tried are nasty... they seem bitter... I would go to Bariatric Eating and buy the sample pack.. they send me a ton of flavors to try...

I have the cinnamon roll. It is ok. Everyone's taste is different. I use more milk or Water if it seems too thick or sweet also crushed or shaved ice helps. I agree with getting the samples, if you can find them. Some people on here love the Protein Shakes that I hate and vice versa.

      What I've learned this last 2 weeks is consistent. That's I've been able to lose a pound here and there. This morning sucked it was 48 degrees but I am working on being consistent and sticking to it. Am perfectly sticking to it? Hell no but I'm working my ass off!

      A bit frustrated with my surgeon's office currently. Feeling like they are leaving everyone in the dark about when surgeries will start again. Told one thing, then told to do another. GRRR! I just want to be scheduled already! 😫🤬

      I'm losing more than weight. Ran labs to prep for my annual exam and since my pre-op labs in September (sleeved 10/13), I've lost:
      39pts off my Total Cholesterol including... 29pts off LDL 33pts off Triglycerides 18pts off fasting glucose & almost normal range A1C is lower on low end of "pre-diabetic" range My surgeon does labs at 6 months, so this is cool info to have in the meantime!

        Hello! I m 3 weeks post op and I just went through the worst constipation of my life
        I was severely impacted for 4 days (it was at the door) it was the worst experience ever!
        within 2 hrs I did 2 suppositories and 2 enemas, it did nothing! I always had the urge to go but it wouldn't come out, with the enemas the urge was greater but still nothing! the following morning I did another enema and nothing. I ended up going to the ER and got IV hydration but they recommended to manually scoop some out which I did but girl it was not enough for relief. My MD recommended: stop protein shakes and go back to liquids only like during week 1 and oral exlax pills, 1 dose and if no bowel movement within 4 hrs then another dose. I needed the 2nd dose by the next day I finally started to get relief.

        my advise before you get so constipated like me, is drink smooth move tea and
        if you get impacted like i was maybe try the exlax after you contact your surgeon and let him know they may advise to stop the protein shakes until you have a bowel movement.

        I know you are only day 4 so maybe not to worry right now. I had my first bowel movement on day 5 post surg. BUT BEWARE of not drinking water!
        I struggle with my water intake too, which is why i became so constipated. all that protein but no water, I know its really hard but we have to try. for me that whole experience has been so bad I am afraid to eat anything! Drinking teas really helps me with the water. I like chamomile and the smooth move tastes pretty good. I also try to ALWAYS have a water bottle in my hand. that is a good reminder to drink it. right now i am assuming you are at home mostly resting so its easy to just have it in your hand at all times.
        and I know its prob bad but I havent had a protein shake in a week. I'm barely recuperating from all that impaction trauma, lol.

      2. Uniquely Me

        I hadn’t pooped in a week also. I was taking benefiber everyday and nothing. I finally decided to take a laxative and went. I’m 9 1/2 weeks post op DS.
