How much water/liquid



Recommended Posts

There are no guidlines on any of my tubs and i am struggling to get a decent consistency.

Also should i use all milk or must i use half milk/half Water? Water on its owm is not doing it for me!

Thanks as always

I usually mixed mine (fruit flavored) with crystal lite single serve stick so I used more Water. about 24 ounces Water with one scoop and one pack crystal lite.

For the choc and vanilla mixes, I finally had to give up on them. I didn't like them in water. It took too long to drink with milk setting out that long. They got thicker the longer they sat making me gag.

I don't think it matters how much you use. Find what works for you, what you can take in in a reasonable amount of time, and what you can stand drinking.

A friend of mine took the bullets and cut them in half with kool-aide.

Good luck

i like to use milk for my chocolate Protein. i just hate the foam/froth and sometimes i don't have the time to let them settle. i would like to have the consistency of a Wendy's frosty, but i haven't mastered that yet.

As for my vanilla shakes, i would use fruit, yogurt or coffee with milk to flavor, along with syrups. but now that i'm on my all liquid diet pre-op, i use Water with a pack of crystal light for flavor. gives it a creamsicle like flavor. i may just start freezing them and making creamsicle pop lol.

i never tried milk half and Water half.

Thanks for that, im doing some experimenting in the kitcken at the min.

I am trying a bullet today, yuck! I dont like it but im taking drinks every now and again as i need to get some decent Protein in!

Have you tried just taking milk and adding a scoop of powdered milk to boost the Protein? Might be what you need since the protein's make you gag. It may not be as high amount of protein as a Protein shake would be, but it would be more palatable. You could also add a tbsp of Torani sugar free Syrup (insert your favourite flavour here).

Hope you find something you like.

        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
