I am having to do the pre op diet for 3 weeks (yuck) but I do understand the importance of it! Saying that my Dr offers the Bariatric Advantage nutritional supplement to be purchased. Has anyone tried these products ( Meal Replacement drinks and bars) and if so what did you think of them?? It is quite a bit of money to spend. Some suggestions would be greatly appreciated!!

Thanks

costco has premier Protein shakes for about $17.00 a case which is not a bad price. They are pretty good. I prefer them over the muscle milk light. (though they aren't bad either) It might be cheaper to go your own way. They also have chewable multi Vitamins (kirkland childrens) which are not bad. You can also try for some samples from Bariatric Advantage before investing a lot of money. I have found for myself that I cannot stomach chicken broth or bouillon. I have been using the premier shakes and vitaminzero Water. :svengo:

This coupon is expired but it shows the premier shake box. :confused1:

p.s. It gets easier each day on the liquid diet. The first couple days were really rough for me because I also gave up caffeine. You can do it!!! hell if I can do it, anyone can! :)

I tried them. I ordered them from Diet Direct and I am sure they are same thing. I actually ordered about $75 worth. I can't stand them, they make me gag. :(

I've tried both the strawberry and chocolate Bariatric Advantage Protein Shakes and really like them. Pre-op I used a blender, added ice and they were delicious! I'm only 3 days post-op so today I tried my first one, not blended. Not as good as that big frothy drink from the blender but I know I wouldn't be able to drink it all now. It took me over an hour to finish the 6 oz version.
