Has any one tried these? Do you like them? I somehow bought them through Amazon and thought I had deleted them, but I still received them in the mail. So I thought I might try them. I hope I can get some good feedback about them. If they are not so good, I will return them to the sender. Thanks everyone!

Last weekend, I found them on sale at GNC and tried the apple melon flavor. I found it to be all right. I didn't find it to be any great taste sensation, but it was quite all right.

I've used the ready to drink and the powdered Isopure. I can taste the Protein in the RTD but it's not terrible and you should try different flavors. The powdered isopure is the only protein i'll use! It's the only one I can't smell. If I can smell the protein it makes me sick so isopure works for me.

i have to take one a day and i'll say get one of each flavor because you kind of get tired of it once you finish a bottle haha

and the crazy candy colored ones like purple and blue are good!

I tried a few flavors from GNC and did not like any of them -- AT ALL. The RTD Protein made my tongue and mouth feel weird, almost like there was a coating of sawdust in my mouth. My husband tried it, said the same thing. Makes my mouth pucker as well and I felt sick drinking it. Personally, I do well with the Unjury and nectar powders mixed with Water. My doctor told me the body doesn't like to absorb more than 25-30g protein in any two hour period anyhow -- so the Isopure seemed like overkill.

I have been getting very nauseous in the afternoons after drinking the Protein Shakes. Almost to the point of unbearable. Yesterday, I found the clear liquid Isopure zero carb and I think they are going to work, crossing my fingers. I am wondering why the others make me do sick? Referring to the comment above about the doctor saying that the body does not like to take in more than 25 Proteins at a time might just be what is the matter with me. I am a little worried over it and if anyone out there has an answer let me know. I personally like the isopure zero.

I had sugery on 2/27 and it is hard for me to drink milk based Protein Shakes right now. I bought 2 bottles of Isopure the blue one, and it taste good. Not anything extravagant., but it goes down without burning or hurting.

I liked the taste because it was light. Right after surgery any heavy flavors made me quesy. And I can't stand the smells either. However, the Isopure gave me horrible cotton mouth. I had to take 4 sips of Water for every sip of the IsoPure. It took 2 days to drink half a bottle then I just gave up.

I initially liked it so I bought a case (pre-op). First few weeks after surgery I couldn't stand the smell or taste! However I am now back to drinking them, but it has to be poured into a mug/cup with a small spout so I can't smell it. Another thing I do is add a squirt or 3 of the Walmart "Mio" to it (Alpine Punch-Isopure and strawberry watermelon-Mio) and ice. The biggest advantage is not only the high Protein content, but the 20 oz of Fluid at the same time. 2 birds 1 stone!

My dr wouldn't even allow me to leave the hospital until I drank 3 bottles of Isopure....once I got home I don't think I was able to finish even one in a day because I just couldn't stand them anymore. There is a reason some people refer to them as Isopuke!! :)

Isopure PLUS zero carbs was my "go to" Protein drink from my surgery date until now. I still keep them on hand. I really like the "lightness" of the flavors compared to so many of the others available. I drink the punch flavor and the grape frost. I ordered the 8 ounce bottles from Amazon. I live in the middle of nowhere, so that was the easiest way for me to get them.

I use them now after a workout. It is an easy source of Protein.< /p>

      Went to see the Star Wars movie yesterday. (Glad I waited as no one else was in the cinema for the midday session - yes!) Hadn’t been to the cinema for a few months and OMG I suffered the most terrible butt pain.  So uncomfortable. Started after 30 mins. Was in the premium cinema so grabbed a cushion to sit on but it didn’t help. Ended up sitting sideways in the chair, stretched out on an ottoman. Soooo super glad no one else was there. Sometimes I do miss my old butt fat cushioning... but not really.

      I have a surgery date, I have my next doctor appointment on Wed and then Thursday I start my 2 week liquid pre-op diet. I am very nervous right now. I know it's going to be a tough mind game.

      Week 5 Post Op Report

      What a journey! I am 5 weeks from surgery and a total of 24.4 pounds down!

      I feel amazing! I’ve incorporated a ton of walking and I’m using my Apple Watch to help me along! I have closed all three of my fitness rings for 11 days straight! Ok, so I am in LOVE with my Apple Watch. I've had it for almost a year and I am just now tapping into it's fitness power!

      I keep on top of my protein, vitamins and biotin!

      I struggle with water but I average about 50 ounces a day. I have only had one day where I had to “purge” because something did not agree with me. Tuna and my Tiny Tummy still do not agree so I’m going to leave it alone for a while!

      I walk on average a little more than 3 miles a day for my exercise but manage to get in at least 13,000-17,000 steps a day depending on how my schedule goes.

      I get up every hour and walk around for at least five minutes. Then if I’m watching a show I get up and walk in place during the commercials!

      I meet with my doc this week for a progress report.

      I have one more week before I graduate from soft foods to the final phase!

      I’ve got my cookbooks ready, my food scale ready and my measuring plates ready!

      I could NOT be more happy with my progress! I feel amazing and I’m grateful to have this tool!

      None Scale Victory: My rings on my finger are spinning!

        Sabrina, you are doing so well. I'm truly inspired and equally excited for you. The view you shared is breathtaking and relaxing, I'm in love with the ocean. Please keep sharing. Where did you find the trackers and how do I access them? My date is approaching the 31st, I'm in liquid diet mode. I see my surgeon on the 17th. Any advice?

      2. SabrinaGoddess

        You got this sis! You totally do.
        The ocean is so peaceful. Some days I get blessed with seeing whales, dolphins and seals. It is truly amazing.

        You can go to under our name at the top left section and click "TICKERS" you can create them there. Then when you lose weight you just go to "my surgery" and change your weight and they will adjust.

        On the liquids, do sugar free pop-cycles. They are more like a treat than a liquid and they count as 2 ounces each! Liquids not the funnest part of our journey but who cares....LOL. I do like the IsoPure clear liquid protein drinks, you can get them at GNC. The flavors are ok. I also LOVED Kettle and FIre Broth and Epic Broths so I drank them all the time, it's good for you. It's BONE BROTH. Kinda pricey but the good stuff usually is.

      3. Krimsonbutterflies

        Thank you for the encouragement/positivity!!! I'm going to conquer this liquid phase, moment by moment. I also appreciate the mini tutorial of how to get the ticker. I'm thinking of starting status updates after my pre-op visit with the surgeon on Friday. I really enjoy the personal perspective and experience being shared, without feeling like the thread is being dominated. I look forward to how each person is approaching the wls lifestyle. Thank you lady, good night. Happy Whale watching. I love seeing the dolphins at Hermosa Beach.
