Dr Mercola and whey protein shakes



Recommended Posts

Look what I just found out about in my mailbox today.

I really respects this man's advice in his newsletters - if you don't already get them try them out for yourself.

Anyway, he is offering a very superior whey Protein in 6 flavors: Here - read a bit about what they are:

For a Limited Time: Get FREE SHIPPING and HANDLING on your ENTIRE ORDER (US and Canada Orders Only). Expires soon!

Every day your body faces a range of stressors that constantly challenge your health and wellbeing... Everything from daily tensions to physical activity to your diet can strain your body's natural balance.

Stress, aging and exercise -- especially overtraining -- can break down your body's defenses.

That's where Miracle Whey? comes in. Made from all-natural grass fed cows' whey, Miracle Whey? provides more of nature's nutrients. Plus, it's certified GMO-, pesticide, and chemical-free, protecting you from ingesting chemicals and hormones*

Not only that, it:

  • Is rich in glutamic acid and branch chain amino acids which aid muscle-building and recovery*
  • Contains 25% or more glycomacropeptides for immune support, high energy, muscle building and recovery*
  • Promotes satiety, so compulsive craving for refined carbs and sweets is curbed*
  • Contains beta glucans, so you can be sure that your immune system is getting the boost it needs.*
  • Contains water-soluble Fiber, which supports healthy blood sugar levels and Prebiotic properties*

Miracle Whey?comes in your choice of six delicious flavors with no aftertaste like some powders on the market: vanilla, strawberry, chocolate, blueberry, banana and Peanut Butter (made from all-organic peanuts).

Protein powder Now

Needless to say they have much more written about it, too much for me to copy and paste here, but perhaps if you google his name you can subsribe to his newsletters and read for yourselves. Sounded so good, I ordered their 6 pk. Free shipping to me here in Canada? Why not!

I always have pampered myself when it comes to food and supplements, why stop now!

Check it out! 40 grams protein per serving, people!

Incredible!

I see this protein powder is really expensive. How much do I need to buy? I'm waiting for a surgery date, and want to be ready. Is this something I'll need from now on, to get my protien? I read that most use the shakes daily, to get the proper protein intake. Will I need this with the clear liquid diet during the 10 day post surgery? Please give me as much information abot what to do with the powder, how to mix it, what to mix it with, during the different stages of recovery. THank you

Judy, (I presume)

I don't know all the answers as I just ordered it, I will have it here next week, and then I can tell you more about that. I am assuming like most shakes it is with 4 oz or so of Water (I add ice) to one scoop of mix and shake in a tupperware type tall container (need a good seal)

I drank the Protein Shake I have now since day one. I am assuming that we may need the extra Protein for the 1st 6 months or so anyway, until out stomachs are capable of handliing a lot more food. It is just a tool to help us keep our muscles from deteriorating as they need the protein the most. afte a bit I will mix mine with skim milk, I think.

They look like declicious flavors, I ordered the 6 pks hoping that is all the protein powder I will need, as I still have some here from Walmart with a vanilla icecream flavor. I like it, but it is not this high of a quality that is for sure.

But hon, it is entirely up to you - just thinking this might be a great choice for many of this board.

Hope that helps,

cheers,

Donna

Donna, I'll be interested to know how they taste, the texture, and ever so importantly the smell. I've tried yet another 3 types of Protein powders, and took them all back to GNC. This time I went for soy Protein, and was absolutely disgusted. . .

I am now on my 20th brand and type. John used this one while he was overseas, and it's a whey protein. Fingers crossed this one works for me that we bought yesterday. The ladies at GNC are getting sick of me bringing crap back to them.

Have you tried Jay Robb whey Protein powder? I love the chocolate flavor, made with lactaid fat free milk and a few drops of banana extract. It's a treat for me.

Judy, during the clear stage I used GNC unflavored Protein powder and mixed it with crystal light, K20 Protein Water, and SF Hawaiin punch. There are the nectar drinks that are also allowable for the clear stage. You should check out the thread in the food section that shows where to order samples. If you can stand the taste, (the taste never bothered me) You should try to get protein in even during the clear stage.

My favorite for the full liquid stage is the PVL brand Whey Gourmet Peanut Butter and chocolate that you order from Netrition.com

I'm with you Tiff - tried again on Sunday - had diarrhea from 7 Sunday evening until about 2 on Monday ... they all have milk in them and I'm so lactose intolerant since the surgery -- noticed all the powders I have in the kitchen also contain milk ... so won't be using those ... wonder if there are any GOOD ones around that don't contain milk ... lactaid doesn't seem to work for me. I'll be interested to see what you think of these Stoongal.

Hmmmm it is my understanding that most whey IS a byproduct of milk, except soy whey, I believe, but yes, I will be sure to look for that when I get my order and let you know.

That such shocks are not so good for health are totally unfounded. These supplements, like other supplements are mere additions to your daily meals. You can eat like a meal after training or as a snack. This does not mean however that you depend on your overall nutrition. Include Protein shakes to your daily diet and you will surely maximum muscle growth. Be consistent with your training and you will definitely see results within a few weeks.

I purchased the 6-pack before my surgery - chocolate, vanilla, strawberry, Peanut Butter, banana, and grape.

So far I've only tried the strawberry and Peanut Butter and they were both very tasty! However, they have like 19g of carbs per serving so I think I'm going to save these for when I get my ice cream maker and just eat them for a treat and not as a meal/shake.

It says right on the container "Use this product as a food supplement only. Do not use for weight reduction."

It is from milk. It says on the container "Great Tasting whey Protein Mix from Grass Fed Cows".

Protein shakes, you can only get a lot of Protein at the same time without eating much food. In order to shake off, throw a ball or a multiple dose powder shaker bottle or blender. Mix in a blender if you decide to add other ingredients. These extra ingredients to add extra calories to your shake. It can also act on its own muscle building meal. Then, just add some more fruit or a glass of milk powder. Start the blender and blend and drink. Let stand in refrigerator for several hours, then cold.

      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:
      https://www.yourbariatricsurgeryguide.com/panniculectomy/ https://www.healthline.com/health/panniculectomy https://www.yourplasticsurgeryguide.com/tummy-tuck/panniculectomy/ https://www.plasticsurgery.org/reconstructive-procedures/panniculectomy/safety https://www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/books/NBK499822/ I hope you find this information helpful. I will provide updates periodically on my progress of this surgical recovery. Have a wonderful day!
