Need unflavored protein that isn't weird



Recommended Posts

Hey all-

I am 5 weeks post op, and most of the time I drink 8 oz of skim with 1 scoop of Jay Robb strawberry Protein powder. The thing is, that gets old after a while (even though it is quite good), and sometimes I don't want to use almost 200 calories for a Protein shake. I still want to get all of my Protein in (my nut says 60-70 grams) but I would like to have an option where I have unflavored protein I can add to SF pink lemonade or something along those lines. I purchased powders?utm_source=BariatricPal&utm_medium=Affiliate&utm_campaign=CommentLink" target="_ad" data-id="1" >unjury (which everyone says is the best, flavorless etc), and I can sometimes taste it and ALWAYS smell it. The smell is so weird/bad that I can't bring myself to drink it really. Sometimes in desperation I just pinch my nose and chug it, but gross. Can anyone suggest an unflavored whey protein isolate (it has to be whey protein isolate, nut says) that isn't disgusting or smelly?!

Thanks!

Good luck, I'm interested to hear opinions on this. I've tried the Unjury unflavored and Optimum nutrition any whey unflavored Protein. They do ok if I'm cooking with it. Like if I make protein pancakes with cottage cheese in them, I throw in a scoop of Protein Powder and then I can't taste it. But every time I mix it in a drink I can taste and smell it.

I thought that the Protein powder wasn't supposed to be heated? On the Unjury it says 'Don't heat over 100 degrees' or something along those lines. You've been cooking with it and eating it and it's okay?

Hmm, I never noticed that on the Unjury container, but I believe you I never really looked. I only tried the sample. The ON seems to be fine. I've never had trouble. I know alot of people throw a scoop into their coffee too. The container for the optimum nutrition one says it's great for baking and lists beverages that it can be mixed into including coffee and hot chocolate so I would assume that is fine. I guess they all just vary.

I tried Unjury and didn't like it at all. It had a weird smell and taste to me. I love Any Whey from Optimum Nutrition. I put it in my coffee every morning (after I stir in some liquid Creamer from the fridge to cool it down). You can tell there is a little something in there but it's not bad at all. I've also mixed it in Soup and other foods and can't tell it's there. I order it online. You should definitely try it.

I definitely agree ... this was the best. I added it to yogurt, pudding, oatmeal, warm cocoa, etc. I ordered it from Amazon at a good price.

      Currently waiting on a surgery date. Hope to hear soon. I have been fighting for the sleeve surgery for 10 years. I am so ready!

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

        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
