Clear Liquids Only Stage?



Recommended Posts

If anyone else is having this problem... I use the whey Protein vials at Walmart... they are fruit punch flavored and have 24 grams of Protein per vial. While the taste of them alone is absolutely revolting, I mix them with sugar free cherry or grape koolaide and I can't even taste it. This is the easiest way I can think of to get my 60-80 gms of protein a day. Hope this helps!!

Great idea, thanks. I'm trying different things now, before sugery!! I have one of those bullets in my frig right now!!! I'll get some kool aid this afternoon and try it. How much do you mix one of the bullets with, 24 oz is what I have in mind, then sip, sip, sip. Thank you again!

I bought a 16oz Water bottle at Wal-Mart too and I just dump the full vial in the bottle and then fill to the top with koolaide, shake and sip... Yumms!!

Just remember to get sugar free koolaide!! :confused1:

I used those Whey Protein vials (a few of them) as well. They were far too sweet, which is why I cut them with Water. But I could choke it down, so that worked out. :smile:

I just called GNC to see what kind of clear Protein they had and he said Isopure or puke lol from what I hear. He also said that he had some liquid Protein that was clear that you mix with stuff. I was wondering if anyone was familar and knew if it was gross or what?

Dont use the New Whey Protein Vials they are not a good source of protein. It is a collegen protein it is made out of things you do not even want to know about. On the protein scale they have it is one of the lowest forms of protein.

I used the NOW Whey Unflavored Protein and Syntrax Matrix (after day 5). Isopure gives me cotton mouth.

Let me back Kathy up on those Protein vials, unfortunately I have a box of 30 on my fridge, but seriously the sickest I have ever been! I have read of others on this board who reported getting really hot and nauseated with them. Just be careful.

I am pre-sleeve but I like the Isopure plus alpine punch--I hope I still do post sleeve. Its zero carb so its a mild taste--not too sweet or fake punch tasting. I could tell that if you added more Water to the mix the taste would be very little twinge of flavoring if you thought the straight punch was strong for you.

I have the unflavored powder on the way so I will test that with Water first then try to add lemon or tea to it. By the way I buy so many different things off of Amazon that I get the amazon prime (free 2 day shipping on amazon shipped products) this has paid for itself three fold because I order allot of heavy shipped items this last year (bulk liquids/powders, cooking supplies, etc.) the amount you save from no sales tax and no shipping are great.

I have since been informed that those Protein vials are not the most healthy way to get your protein. Please accept my apology for those of you that I led astray. I have since returned the vials and use Unjury chocolate for my protein. I am going to buy some of the Protein Powder at Wal-Mart when that runs out.

No need to apologize! This is a rough learning curve and sometimes the only way to learn is trial and error. You are lucky they were returnable. I have tons of em in and on my fridge that I have no idea what to do with.

Okay! I would feel good not wasting it. PM me your address. I'm glad if it works for you that is a quick way to get your Protein needs!

Don't invest too much money on Protein powders pre-op since a lot of people experience a change in taste. I bought the GNC unflavored Protein powder and now post-op am unable to stomach it. It dissolves but it also has a strong smell and taste. :thumbup1:

Check with your doctor to see if you can use other protein powders (flavored) with Water during the 2nd part of the clear liquid phase.

If you are within 30 days of purchase you can return things to GNC
