CytoSport Muscle Milk Light?



Recommended Posts

I found the RTD Muscle Milk at my local grocery store & tried it. It was very good! :thumbup1: I know many of you do not like Protein with this many carbs, but...

Anyway, I've sent an email to Nina asking when I could drink those post op, but thought I'd pick the brains of the veteran sleevers here as well. :rolleyes: I've included a link so you can see the information on it. My question is for Dr. Aceves' patients, when would this drink be acceptable?

This has 11gms of carbs, that's not bad. You can't have it on clears but you can on full liquids.

The reason I am pro-low carb on liquids is because you can be hungry in more ways than just ghrelin. If you consume a lot of carbs it causes blood sugar spikes and that cycle can cause hunger. If you don't consume any other carbs and drink three of these daily it's fine. But anymore carbs and it might make you feel hungry and that's a bad bad thing on the post op diet. If you get too hungry you might be more likely to cheat.

But if you do three of these daily you get all your Protein and 33gms of carbs daily. That's absolutely fine. Just avoid juices, smoothies, etc. while on full liquids. It makes it easier on you.

Thanks, WasA! I don't plan to have juices & I think all of my carbs will come from the Protein drinks while on all liquids. I actually don't plan to drink 3 of the MMLight a day...I plan to do two of them & a nectar Protein Drink. So, I think my carb intake should be fine as well. I do feel hungrier when I consume a lot of carbs, so I do plan to limit my carbs as much as possible, especially during the liquid only phases.

I can see a light at the end of the tunnel now. I think I'll be okay on liquids. If I can just make it to the full liquid stage! :thumbup1: I think the clears will be the most difficult for me to get in the Protein. I guess I'm just gonna have to suck it up & get it done! :rolleyes:

Ohhhh, one other thing! Muscle Milk Light is verrrrry sweet tasting and you may not like it much after surgery. Just buy it in small quantities in case you have the ASS disease. AAAACCCKKKK Sweet Syndrome. ;o)))))

I love muscle milk. That and the Peanut Butter chocolate that your get from netrition.com are my favorites.

I live 100 miles from costco where I bought a case of muscle milk light here in Oregon. When I was in Arizona, I went to the costco there, and brought it home in my suitcase!

      Looks like I need people around to complete a 10K.  I tried to do one by myself this afternoon and I gave up at around the 7km mark.  Gonna try again on Friday, but I may have to look into joining a running club...

      My Surgeon asked me a question the other day and i didn't give it a lot of thought at the time.
      He asked "do you tell"
      we were talking about peoples reaction to seeing me since i lost such a large amount of me.
      I answered that i do tell if they ask but that it seems most everyone is afraid to mention it if they haven't seen me in a while or they decided they already know the answer so they don't need the truth from me (we all know those types)
      I have had exactly one family friend come right out and ask me how i lost so much weight this year and i told her i had Gastric Sleeve.
      I am sure family has passed it around to other family (you have that type family don't you? or is it just me)  
      So that left me wondering "do you tell" and i dont mean right at surgery time. more like a year or so down the road do you say how or do you just say cut out the sugar and carbs and WAALAA
      Its a real personal choice to open yourself up to that kind of criticism and we know all about how we took the "Easy" way and yada yada yada.
      hope everyone is having a great week

        If people ask, I am open about it

        I'm about 10 months post op, and my standard answer is I eat way less and exercise way more (oh, and I cut the carbs by a lot). The only people I told were Mr., the Kid, BFF and my Mom.

        People know cuz my sissies have big mouths. And when skinny peeps ask out of morbid curiousity and they are "related" somehow to me, I look at em and arch my eyebrow and smile like, WTF? Then I just shrug and say, "I can neither confirm nor deny." (I've practiced this in the mirror many times. LOL!)

        But today, I was talking to a lady in my oncologist's office and she said "Oh don't you love you Surgeon X - bariatric surgeon? I'm in her weigh loss program!" And so I really opened up to her and talked frankly about the program and the surgery and details and how I'm so much happier and healthier, etc. So there has to be a real genuine need and desire for comraderie--otherwise, "Bye Felicia..."
