The shakes make me sick too, since my surgery that is. There is a 15 fl.oz. drink called "Naked" it comes in a variety of flavors for different needs, although there are 3 or 4 that are high in Protein, 30g per 15oz bottle, I am only able to find one and it's called Protein zone; purple cap with a picture of fruit on the front Protein Zone | Naked juice | BevNET.com Product Review + Ordering.

Here is what you get inside the protien zone: 2.25 apples, 1 banana, 1/2 orange, hint of coconut, and pineapple, whey and soy protein. Calories per bottle are 220, no added sugar no added artificial sweetners. So your getting your protein and some good fresh nutrition. It is fruity delicious without that disgusting telltale taste of whey or whatever those protien powder mixed drinks taste like. Nothing like it. If you can get 2 bottles down you've got 60 grams. I buy mine at a local supermarket "Stop n Shop". It will be found in the specialty refridgerator drink section or the healthfood section but it has to be refridgerated. I was hoping to find a place online to purchase it but no luck so far. Here is the Naked website: Welcome to Naked Juice

*not cheap though a bit over $3.00 per bottle, but since this surgery I don't spend much on food and it's really very good nutrition. If you find a place online to order it please let me know.

Backtonew - Welcome to VST -and congratulations on having had your surgery.

I'm not able to drink the Protein Drinks since surgery - if you like cottage cheese, it has a lot of Protein. Also there is a ricotta bake recipe posted on here that has quite a bit of protein and is really good. Also I posted a recipe for egg drop Soup that is really easy and tasty. I'm sure others will have lots of ideas for you too.

How many carbs per serving Lan?

I believe it would be 34. I know that may sound high but these are not refined carbohydrates, their from fresh fruit. I am drinking this stuff as much as possible since early after my surgery, (thank God my daughter found it)...I am losing weight so fast it scares me.

I love the Naked drinks - I'll look for the Protein One. Thanks!

I tolerate the Jay Robb Whey Protein Shakes (chocolate) just fine, and I am lactose intolerant. I mix it with Lactaid Milk, 1 cup. I add a few drops of banana or coconut extract and the flavor is great...no nasty after taste. 33 grams Protein per shake (includes the milk)

Can you buy naked in any stores or just online?

(I almost wrote "can you get naked in any stores- lol - but I already knew that was a personal choice thing!)

LOL that would have been funny Attitude -- You can buy it pretty much anywhere - I know the grocery stores around here carry it - Sam's carries it too, but I don't think they have the Protein One with the purple lid. I don't know if GNC carries it or not. It's always in the refrigerated section, not on the shelves.

I'm sorry, but I have to laugh at that name. . . .reminds me of Hedonism, Jamaica!

Although this reviewer say 34 grams of Protein per bottle- the bottle says 30 grams protein. 30 grams for 2 servings...which is the entire 15 oz. bottle. Hope that clarifies. There is a picture of the protein zone by Naked here--just click. Protein Zone | Naked juice | BevNET.com Product Review + Ordering /The carbs are from the fruit in the drink. Right now at least I am getting in some nutrition by drinking this. Eating food no matter how much I chew is still not going smoothly for me.

        It will be interesting to watch as this theory develops. Thanks for posting!

      Feel like it's time for a status update, I haven't been on here regularly in a while and I need to keep my mindset focused on my goals.
      I haven't weighed myself in ~ 3 weeks.  I think I'm becoming the opposite of "obsessive" about tracking my progress and it could cause me some issues.  The good thing is that there have still been quite a number of NSV's happening that is telling me that I'm still progressing without knowing what the scale says.
      First one is that a belt I bought about 5 weeks ago because all my other belts were too big is also on the last hole so I'll have to buy yet another belt again.  second, I bought new jeans about a month ago and I have a lot more slack in the waist than I did when I purchased them.  I also boarded a plane and had about 8 inches of slack in the belt.  Finally, I hit my goal last week of being able to ride go-carts with my kids.  The last time I tried about 4 years ago, I had to leave because I couldn't fit in the harness.  This was sweet victory and I showed those two how it was done on the race course!!  😈

      I just looked through all my old pants after my pre-op pants started getting to big. Keep in mind that I wear men's pants (usually cargos) because I am so tall 5'10"/5'11" ish. I also find that men's baggies tend to fit me better.
      I started out at a 44 in waist pant and quickly found that I was back down to my 42's. So even when thise got to be too big, I had to start pulling old clothes out of storage. After finding my 38's, I thought that these would not yet fit, but when I tried them on, they fit perfectly. I also found some older pants that now fit better than I remembered. What a relief! It's not like I can pop down to the store like I could do in the US and the styles here in Sweden are all skinnt jeans which I cant stand. I also found some 36's, but I'm not mentally ready to try those on yet. The biggest challenge will be buying women's clothing again.

      slow and steady wins the race.  don't get discouraged and just keep at it. Let your sleeve do its job and try not to stress yourself out.
      hope you are all having a great summer and enjoying what your sleeve has given you.
      just got back from a wedding in OR. and man am i afraid to get on the scale

        Great reminder about how fast you can lose weight. The mind games we play with ourselves are the worst.
