Premier Protien Shakes Cross Post



Recommended Posts

I have been a huge promoter of Premier Protein shakes and I just want to post this as a *temporary* retraction of my promotion. Premier has changed their formula, upping the cholosterol to 25mg from 15 and decreasing potassium from 650 to 500 mg. Now that in it's self did not bother me, however the taste is horrible on the chocolate shake. I have been in contact with them and they are sending me a new cast free of charge and I will let you know if it was a fluke. The customer service rep was very responsive and concerned and assured me that my comments would be forwarded to higher ups, but he did admit he as gotten other complaints, not taste so much as thickness. I hope that means my box was just a fluke in taste as I really do not know what I would do without it in my daily routine.

Attached is a pic of the new container, I have to say that they missed the boat on that too, it has a cheap look and feel. The new one is the one on the left with the chocolate splash on it:

I have had both versions as well and the new ones are thicker and taste less chocolatey. I can't drink them straight anymore, have to pour them over 2 cups of ice to get them diluted and thinner. I think I'll call and complain, too. I don't care if they send me anything, I just want them to bring the old formula back.

Yes Please do call them!!!!!!!@!!888-836-8977 or write them at info@premiernutrition.com. Mention how the product is mentioned here, that seem to scare them a bit. They did not seem to know that WLS folks used their product.

Less chocolatey AND bad after taste!

OH NO!!!! Why did they change it!!! These were the only ones I liked!!! I have the old chocolate ones still. My mom just bought me the vanilla and I did notice the package was different, but I thought it was just because it was vanilla. I thought it taste okay, but it was the first time I had the vanilla, so I can't really compare. I hope they change it back before i need more chocolate ones!

Make sure you contact them and let them know. The only way to make them change is to hear from MANY consumers!

FYI: I went to costco today and bought the old formula (yay!). Apparently my Costco just put the new stock on top of the old; I noticed that some boxes on the bottom of the pile had the arrows and moved some of the boxes on top to get to them. They have an expiration date of Nov 11, 2011 and the new formula has a later expiration date and the changed box. I bought 2 cases and may be going back for more since these are the only shakes I like so far.

      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.....

        @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.
