Protein Shake Questions



Recommended Posts

Okay...I'm drinking my Protein Shakes for my pre-op diet. Trying to get my bmi down a bit before surgery. I am drinking the EAS advantage Protein Shake which are 19-20 grams Protein and about the same on carbs. Is the carb count too high or should I look for something else?? Just wondering. i'm doing liquid only diet. Thanks!!

As I was loosing weight on my own my doctor let me do my own diet. I did a shake for breakfast and dinner and a sensible meal for lunch. If you are using Protein Powder (my doctor requires whey Isolate) here's what I recommend. Make "milk cubes" with fat free milk. Sample recipe: two milk cubes, couple ice cubes, 2/3 cup fat free milk, tablespoon or more sugar/fat free pudding powder, Splendra (artificial sweetener) mix in blender. Comes out with a think milk shake texture. Depending on your Protein powder your shake could be 200 cal with 35 g protein.

I am almost 4 months into having my band and I still can only do shakes in the morning, mushies or Soup for lunch and a small healthy dinner. Not because it's what my doctor ordered for me, but because my band is so dang tight in the early parts of the day.

Anyway, I was worried about nutrition, but getting burned out on my shakes with fat free milk and started looking for other options.

The best thing I've come up with is mixing about half a cup of ice, two cups of orange juice and a big scoop of vanilla flavored Protein mix. It tastes sooooo good. Just like a Pushup™!

Charming in for the Premier Protein shake from costco. I love the taste - I drink one every morning. And the nutrition facts are great. If your doc doesn't require any particular shake, that's a great one to go with I think.

      Hey October Surgery friends...how are you doing? I've lost 15 lbs since surgery on 18th.42 lbs overall. Wearing clothes that feel great. Had a bout of cold and stomach flu and still having some nausea off and on after that but getting better, I think. 
      Seems like I fill up and have minor pain quicker when I eat hot foods rather than cold. Anyone else notice this?
      Still sooo glad I did this.
