Gaterade G3 protein water



Recommended Posts

Just picked up some Gatorade G3 at the supermarket. It has 16g Protein per bottle for 120 calories. At $2 per bottle (on special at Jewel) it is certainly cheaper than the GNC fruit flavored Protein Drinks. It seems like a good choice for me when I am out and don't have my Special K protein Water mix with me (or a bottle to mix it in).

How does it taste?

The flavors are lemon-lime/orange or strawberry/kiwi. I have only tried the lemon-lime/orange so far. It is sweetened with glucose so it tastes a little sweet to me. It is less "salty" and more sweet than regular gaterade.

I thought we were supposed to stay away from or highly limit sugar in our diets? At least that's what I remember them saying in the WLS class I had to take in order to be approved for surgery. Am I wrong in this?

Yes I was told the same thing too. I am not even supposed to have regular Slim Fast because it has too much sugar. I am just saying the Gatorade G3 is probably OK in a pinch if you cannot find anything else.

You have to check the sugar content out. I know this is a very easy way to get Protein but it could have negative effects on your weight loss.. I usually try to get just limited number of sugars..say under 5 grams. You have to also check the sodium content in them also. They will make you retain fluids.

You're right, at 14g carbs per container these should be avoided. I guess a carton of non-fat milk would be better if you can stand it.

        I haven't pooped in a weed and I'd love a 4 pound poo right now lol

      2. ms.sss

        Lol, yeah, I've been known to drop 3-ish lbs after a good (and long awaited) poop.

        .....or even after a moderate to severe dumping episode. yikes.

      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
