Protein shake, can't stand it!



Recommended Posts

I have been drinking the Premier Protein from costco. I need to get in 60g of Protein a day. I cannot drink another one of these shakes. Since the surgery, my gag reflexes have been on full force, including smells, yuk. My Dr. gave me the go ahead for bananas, now... I just need to GOOD vanilla, or unflavored, protein I can mix with yogurt and a banana. My problem is, I need a good Protein Powder, something that tastes good and doesn't smell. I know I'm looking for a miracle here, but I can't drink another chocolate shake again. Any help would be great. Thanks!

I've been loving my unjury Protein. I found the best price at Amazon.com

I like the chocolate mixed with skim milk or plain yogurt. I also am adding the unflavored to most everything. Try it, it's good.

We (preop meeting by RN) were told that if you absolutely can't stand the Protein then to buy some nonfat powdered milk and mix a scoop with your broth or skim milk. 1/4 c is 80 cal. 8 g protein and 13 carbs. It is not as good in numbers as the protein powders, but better than skipping.

Hi There...I have some GREAT news for you....Protien, at this stage of your recovery, as well as moving forward, is very important. The protien shake is the easiest, fastest and cleanest way to get protien into your body. Check out nectar protien shakes. The Peach/Coffee/Lemonade is very clean, and has no "protien" taste or chaulky feeling. You can order a sample pack from them, and they'll send you 12 flavours to check out. No kidding You won't regret it...trust me! It's probably one of the more expensive protien shakes on the market, but the price per serving is reasonable...and the biggest thing is you'll be able to drink it, no probs!

      I met with my surgeon on Friday.. I've completed all my tests and all my nutrition meetings as well as meeting the weight loss requirements for my insurance. We are officially submitting to insurance for approval and I was given a surgery date of January 16th 2020 (13 days before my birthday!) Fingers crossed all goes through

      Ok, now im getting old...my body gets me up at my normal 5am dog walk even when it's the weekend, vacation, and most importantly when I'm sick. So now that I have more energy, my body wants to make sure I suffer even longer during the day when I have a cold! Damn being healthy again! (:D)

      At my Primary Physician appt, the Doc said you know you lost a whole person. When you started seeing me you were 265lbs now you're 148lbs.
      She's right... I lost the fun me 😂 Joking Joking Joking. It's amazing who keeps track when you don't like insurance and browsers feeds
