@ jrsmanatee - you want Protein Shakes, not Meal Replacements, those are for people who need the calories, not necessarily the Protein. Protein shakes are specifically high protein, low carb, and reasonably low calorie.

I have been using Smart Protein by Complete Nutrition in Vanilla and mixing it with 4oz Water and 4oz coconut milk and its wonderful. I haven't seen it mentioned here though?

I've not seen anyone mention smart Protein at complete nutrition. My dr referred me to use it because its so low in sugar and sodium. I mix it with 4 oz Water and 4oz vanilla coconut milk and its awesome!

Never heard of it Brandy, sounds great! I just started using True Athlete and it is the BEST Protein powder I HAVE HAD IN THREE YEARS as a sleever! I got the vanilla and it is filling, rich, no additives, awesome!

I will never shop GNC, or the Bariatric sites stuff is marked up too high it's outrageous. GoD this list is long I'm told to get 90 grams a day and Isopure has always done it for me $50 right to my door from Amazon 21 50 G Protein serving hard to beat. These watered down things have 12 grams so I need 8 shakes a day this way I do 2 day day get 100 grams (the extra can't hurt)

I just finished a Jay Robb orange...like a creamsicle. I also like the pina colada flavor, but not as good.

My all time favorite is Chocorite - Peanut Butter & chocolate and also the Cappuccino - very good.

Click is also good for an iced coffee experience. I tried java pro but that is really a strong coffee flavor, even when I only use half, and not whey Protein. I have been combining one scoop with a scoop of vanilla Isopure, that is OK until I use it up.

Also, I really like Matrix strawberry cream.

I go to costco and buy the Muscle Pharm Combat Protein Pwdr, in the Cookies and Cream Flavor its awesome with Water otherwise it gets way to sweet for me. It has 25 grams of protein and 5 Total Carbohydrates and 140 calories per one scoop. So mixing a scoop and a half with 18oz of water 3x a day is a great way to get your protein and water in at the same time. :)

Unjury unflavored is my go-to, but I'm going to start trying others as well.

I have to say, I'm sticking with my Ensure High Protein (now Ensure Active) 25g protein and it's ready made in individual to go bottles. So easy to take with me when I travel or just to grab and go every morning. And, they taste good!! I watch for sales in grocery stores and CVS, so I keep a nice stock of them at home. Walmart seems to be cheapest place though. They are honestly the only Protein Shakes I like and a year and a half later I'm still enjoying one every morning.

I didn't know that Jay Robb makes a pb/chocolate . I will have to look for it.

I could not find PVL whey Gourmet or my Gaspari Myofusion pb/choc. They have both apparently been taken off the market.

I had to order Optimum Nutrition PB/choc . I will let everyone know if it's not good. If it's not, I'll try the Jay Robb.

I just have to say, I tried my first unjury Protein mix - the strawberry Sorbet - and I really like it. I have tried so many (Jay Robb, 365, Nutracore just to name a few), and while I can get them down for the first day or two, it doesn't take long before I wretch at the thought of them. I have found that after my sleeve, not only do I not like that taste of artificial sweeteners (which I never did), but I just can't tolerate them. I was so leary of yet another Protein powder that I received my starter pack shipment from Unjury 4 days ago and just now convinced myself to try one. I squeezed a bit of fresh lemon juice into 8 oz of cold Water in my shaker cup, added the Protein Powder - and it really is great! Now we shall see what the other flavors are like . . .

      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.

        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.
