I have tried it and it doesn't bother me. I put it in yogurt. Some people say it does have a weird taste, but I don't think it does.

Thanks for posting this! I'm pre WLS and I'm trying hard to find some good quality powders without any dangerous chemicals. I'll print this out so I can check out ingredients and Protein amounts.

I've been reading a lot about unjury and I just looked it up and I don't like what I see in the ingredients list at all:

UNJURY chocolate whey Protein supplement is specifically-designed by a clinical dietitian to deliver Medical Quality Protein.


Whey protein isolate

fructose (the most pro-diabetic sweetener we can consume. Do they really need this AND artificial chemical sweeteners?)

natural and artificial flavors (This could mean ANYTHING and it almost always means MSG or other dangerous additives.)

cocoa powder

soy lecithin

xanthan gum

aspartame (a dangerous chemical sweetener that is an excitotoxin that causes brain cancer / tumors and MS symptoms.)

acesulfame (ANOTHER dangerous chemical sweetener??)

I love the one that I use currently but when I posted about it on the obesityhelp web site I got accused of being a spammer and some girl said that this shake was no good for WLS patients at all. The more I learn, the more I think she was full of crap.

Thie shake I like has 14g of protein at 100 calories but I could add another 14g by adding two raw eggs to bring it to 250 calories and 28g of protien. That's a great meal post WLS, isn't it??

I personally will not eat or drink anything with aspertame in it . I think it's poison in my book!

Where's Jay Robb? His stuff is great and it's whey Protein isolate. I especially love the tropical dreamsicle flavor. I mix mine with part water/milk or part water/OJ. Sometimes I do OJ with Water and milk. I just use the part water to help disolve the powder a little before I add the milk or OJ. I usually let it sit over night in the fridge so the powder is totally disolved. It's yummy! You can also get chocolate, strawberry, vanilla and pina colada. Vitamin Shoppe sells the single serve packets that you can try out to see if you like it. I'm sure GNC has them too. It has 25 gm protein per serving, 1 gm carbs and 0gm sugar, and is made with Stevia.

Thanks for sharing.

I have a print out of all the different types of powders.. along with their ratings.

I was told to go for something as close to 1.0 as I can since it's the highest.

If I think about it, I'll scan it to show ya'll

I like the GNC Wheybolic Extreme chocolate. 60g of Protein for 280 calories (93 calories for 20g of protein). It tastes really great.

As for raw eggs in a post surgery shake - I am not supposed to have any eggs 6 weeks post surgery so that would be a big fat "No" from my surgeon's office on the Protein Shake enriched with 2 raw eggs.

As for "value", 28g of Protein for 250 calories is not really a good meal post WLS. IMHO, it doesn't have enough protein, too many calories and very high cholesterol.

i have issues with getting the right consistancy in my Protein Shakes. When I use Unjury and try and add yogurt or frozen fruit...my shake ends up entirely too thick.

I also bought the BSN Lean Desert Protein Powder--Chocolate Coconut and It is so thick i can hardly drink it... i mix it with soy milk in the blender on the liquid option and it gets so thick and bubbly I can't even drink it... people talk about adding yogurt and fruit to their shakes...but it has never worked for me.

It just goes to show you how everyone is different. I don't find the BSN

Choc. Coconut to be thick at all. I like it a lot. If you mix it with Water, it wouldn't be thick. Maybe it needs to stand after you have mixed it to

let the bubbles go down.

There are a lot of people who really like Jay Rob. I am going to try it this weekend. I am going out of town where there will be a Vitamin Shoppe.

Keep your reviews coming! We all need this great information!

i have the GNC pro-performance Cookies and cream and i dont particularly like it. I dont have money to waste on trial and error....my doc recommended the Boost Glucose Control and honestly i do like it, although it's Protein content isnt as high as some of the powders (16g) but i figure post op I will be drinking this for 3 weeks, so I stocked up yesterday.

I love reeses so I am considering the whey Gourmet PB chocolate. I hope it's good mellow.gif

You should have just returned it to GNC, they take it back without a problem. If you are thinking of the Gourmet Elite Peanut Butter chocolate, I didn't like that - I didn't like the COokies and Cream you have at all, but I LOVE the chocolate. Don't give up on the Wheybolic Extreme, because you don't like Cookies and Cream. Try the chocolate, I am using that since years, I am not getting tired of it and I love the flavor, texture...yum.

      I hate these Lovenox shots.  That is all! LOL
      Feeling like a pin cushion.
      I know they are needed and it's only 10 days worth but I really hate giving myself shots. It's one of the reasons I want to be healthy because diabetes runs in my family

      Yas, I am HOME! Traveling back home was interesting but I made it.
      For the first time in my flying life we had NO drink service due to the turbulence! It was crazy. I had to call the steward to bring me water. You CAN NOT let yourself get behind on drinking! That would be dangerous.

        @billybob I am thriving and breathing! That's a blessing!

        yeahhhhhh we are only 3 months apart on the sleeve journey. I found it has been way easier to lose with the sleeve than it was with the band...... although i loved my band. Sleeve was the easiest SX i ever had too.....

      5. SabrinaGoddess

        @bayougirlmrss I was told this is the fastest weight loss surgery, but I am not really looking for extremely fast. I want it to be healthy. This is our new tool and we can use it wisely for sure. Are you taking your biotin and vitamins?

      TOMORROW IS MY DAY! (note this did not post properly so I am still  posting it after the fact)
      I am so very excited! My sister is here with me and my son. I am so excited. My anesthesiologist called me tonight to discuss our plans for tomorrow. I am not feeling nervous at all. Just excited for the future!
      I did buy a few bottles of CFpreop which is really suppose to help you stay hydrated. It's pricey but I feel it's worth it. I tried the Watermelon tonight. I have to stop all liquids after midnight and I go into the hospital at 5:30am for check in. My surgery is at 8am.
      SO HAPPY for this journey!
      You can get the CFpreop on Amazon if anyone is interested. It comes in Watermelon and White Grape.

      Today I said I’m an XS or size 8 (Aust) at a clothing store. I never thought I’d say those words and say them with confidence. And when I commented a dress was too big on me I was told it was the smallest size. As was the belt I wanted. 
      I tried on a slim fitting singlet dress yesterday & was shocked to realise the lumpy bits on the dress were my hip bones. I have an hour glass shape so I always had hips but never ones that stuck out on the front of my body! 

      I’ve been a size 10 before - for about 5 minutes. While I am now confident about saying I’m an 8, clothes shopping is all still a bit freaky for me. It’s not that I’m focussed on the size on the label. I’m well aware the cut/line of the clothes and the designer’s style will dictate what size I need or if it will suit my body shape. The size is the starting point & it’s starting at an 8/XS/38 which is a big mind set change. It’s thinking a pair of pants will be too small & discovering they are almost too big. 

      While I’m still coming to terms with my actual new body shape and size, I’m very happy to be in this new reality.

        ...ah! I see you are from Brisbane! We lived there for a year when Mr. got a work contract there.

        I have fond (and not-so-fond, lol) memories of the weather there this time of year. It it crazy hot yet?

        Hit 42degress last weekend but this week has been in the rather pleasant low 30s (relatively of course😜). Could still wear jeans but thank goodness for air conditioning. Worse is the drought. Everything is dying or dead. Very sad & depressing.

      4. ms.sss

        I feel ya.
