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 have to say, even more than 2 years out, it is so much easier to be good when your busy and so easy to go wrong when your bored.  Crappy weather and the wife is sick so i feel trapped in this house and i have to really watch myself.  At least the holiday leftovers are gone.
      Going to get out this week even if for only a few hours, maybe go see  Ford vs Ferrari that looks real good.
      Ok, whining over, I hope everyone is doing well and had a good thanksgiving.

        I hear ya. I notice the only time I ever "feel like eating" when I'm not actually hungry is when I'm watching TV for too long.

      Well yesterday I went bra shopping. Again. I could put pleats in the cups of the new ones I’d bought just three months ago so it was back to the department store. Foolishly I wore a dress so spent an hour in the fitting room wearing only my knickers as two fitters (yes it took two of them) ran back & forth with different bras to try. Those full length mirrors & fluorescent lights are super unflattering on the loose skin. Yikes! 
      Of course I’m between cup sizes & deflated at the top so only two of the most expensive brands around would fit me. At least a couple I bought were on sale.  Sigh. 
      So I’ve gone from a 18F to a 14F to now a 10FF/G.  At least I’m in two hook bras again and not the clumsy three & four hook ones. They are soooo much prettier (all lacy & fine mesh - ooh la la). 
      I really need to buy new knickers too - those old size 16 boy legs are like loose legged shorts now - but I’m just not sure what size. Plus after buying the new bras I can’t afford to buy knickers yet lol!
