I bought my unflavored Protein Powder at GNC for the clear stage which I mixed with crystal lite. I thought posting a spot where people could buy samples would be a good idea, since so many people end up buying tubs of stuff they end up not liking.

Good! Keep them coming. When new people are researching, it will be good

for them to have a place to go to get

samples. There is no sense in buying a big

tub and finding out you can't stand it.

Someone can recommend something,

but everyone has different taste.

Just new Info...

I ordered the Chike samples last week... shipping isn't $3 anymore..it's $6.95 ....samples were still worth it and I really enjoyed the Orange Creme...didn't care so much for the chocolate as it was really thick....probably would have been better in a blender with ice but I like my chocolate hot....(as in cocoa).

I'm going to try the banana today.

Buying these sample kits really gives you a great way to check out alot of products for minimal cost and gives you a great variety to prevent boredom too.

OregonDaisy, thanks for starting this post. As a pre-op I want to get a supply of samples. I understand that post-op my tastebuds may change and it will be great to have samples and not have to purchase big containers only to find that I don't like it.

You're welcome! That's why I put this here. I want people to have a variety to choose from so they are able to find a Protein they like for the post op diet. Getting in your Protein post op is important!

It keeps you from getting so hungry and helps so you don't lose muscle Losing muscle will cause saggy skin.

Hi, thanks for all the info, it's really great of you. I am post op, but no-one here seems to know what sort of protein supplements I need, sleeve surgery is very new to UK and I was just told to take a Multivitamin. Obviously since finding this site I now know better andhave even found a GNC uk site where I can buy it from. I am looking for a powder that is unflavoured and can be added to food as i cannot stomach shakes. Anyone know a brand name I can have a look at, all the Proteins look the same to me lol.

I used the GNC brand of unflavored Protein powder. It's not completely unflavored though. I didn't find it made food taste badly though.

Thanks for that, will see if i can get hold of some in the UK. I figure any Protein I can get in is better than none.

I found those protien shots at Walmart too I thought the fruit punch tasted very good. I heard somewhere that this is not a good source of protien....don't remember where I heard that. I forgot to ask my dr. about it. I'm realllllllllly confused about what protien is good and what is not! My surgery is in 2mos. Oh and thanks for all the info on samples I'm really excited now about ordering them!!!!!!!

Protein shots are made from collagen Protein not whey protein. Collagen is not a good form of protein, but most doctors will say a form of protein that is not a good quality protein is better than no protein at all.

      Siri: I don't think it's raining at the moment.
      Wet Dogs: Then why are we wet? This damn Siri person is more stupid than we are.

      I received my nutrition book and checklist today! I am so very excited (and a tad bit scared too) Each day this is becoming a reality!
      I created a new blog post about how BRAVE we all are for doing this. Because I think we are! Most of us know the horrors of people calling us nasty names, saying we can't control ourselves, we are easy targets for people's verbal attacks! But I feel we are BRAVE because we are taking control over our lives and creating a new world of happiness.

      Today I scheduled my mental evaluation and my nutritionist appointments. Yes, we are moving along quiet nice.  December 9th will be here before you know it.
      I have informed my inner circle of family about the surgery and I will be keeping it in my CORE!

      Well, it has been a while since I posted here, but my journey continues. As for breaking my stall, I was able to get down to 214 with the help of a friend via our Fitbit fitness trackers which has made me ecstatic! Since that has happened I was fortunate enough to have my insurance company approve a panniculectomy to remove the panniculus (THIS is the correct term, NOT pannus, see this reference: https://www.merriam-webster.com/medical/panniculus) that has been deviling me for years, even before I had bariatric surgery. It was to the point that it was hanging down far enough to cover my pubic area, covered half my thighs when I would sit, and also drooped between my legs which I could hardly manage to keep together when sitting. For any males that may read this, for a woman that is pretty uncivilized, not to mention, unladylike especially when wearing a dress or skirt - just looks slovenly to say the least. Despite the numerous skin issues I had the last couple of years, my health insurance insisted the procedure was cosmetic... 🤐 . I would guess no one that is saying so has been in the bariatric patient's shoes. The damn thing was just getting to be a self-esteem killer in addition to a medical nuisance requiring many visits to my primary care physician, and interfering with my mobility. Now, I realize there are folks with more egregious panniculus sag issues, but the fact that it interferes with mobility is an important consideration.
      One thing I have to say is that this surgery is drastically different from any other I've had. Things occur that are deemed routine, expected even, after a panniculectomy that would be downright unacceptable after any other procedure. This plastic surgery experience is definitely a learning experience that is still unfolding as I key this entry. For one thing, the swelling is a story all it's own, I had no clue my abdomen could get so large, so quickly, without causing my skin to just split open - it's crazy! So far, I'm pleased to have been able to get this procedure despite may be perceived as drawbacks, just to get the pendulous adipose tissue demon off of my person. Here are a few links to information about this procedure for anyone considering it in the future:

I will provide updates periodically on my progress of this surgical recovery. Have a wonderful day!
