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>

      I hate these Lovenox shots.  That is all! LOL
      Feeling like a pin cushion.
      I know they are needed and it's only 10 days worth but I really hate giving myself shots. It's one of the reasons I want to be healthy because diabetes runs in my family

      Yas, I am HOME! Traveling back home was interesting but I made it.
      For the first time in my flying life we had NO drink service due to the turbulence! It was crazy. I had to call the steward to bring me water. You CAN NOT let yourself get behind on drinking! That would be dangerous.

        yeahhhhhh we are only 3 months apart on the sleeve journey. I found it has been way easier to lose with the sleeve than it was with the band...... although i loved my band. Sleeve was the easiest SX i ever had too.....

        @bayougirlmrss I was told this is the fastest weight loss surgery, but I am not really looking for extremely fast. I want it to be healthy. This is our new tool and we can use it wisely for sure. Are you taking your biotin and vitamins?

      TOMORROW IS MY DAY! (note this did not post properly so I am still  posting it after the fact)
      I am so very excited! My sister is here with me and my son. I am so excited. My anesthesiologist called me tonight to discuss our plans for tomorrow. I am not feeling nervous at all. Just excited for the future!
      I did buy a few bottles of CFpreop which is really suppose to help you stay hydrated. It's pricey but I feel it's worth it. I tried the Watermelon tonight. I have to stop all liquids after midnight and I go into the hospital at 5:30am for check in. My surgery is at 8am.
      SO HAPPY for this journey!
      You can get the CFpreop on Amazon if anyone is interested. It comes in Watermelon and White Grape.

      Today I said I’m an XS or size 8 (Aust) at a clothing store. I never thought I’d say those words and say them with confidence. And when I commented a dress was too big on me I was told it was the smallest size. As was the belt I wanted. 
       
      I tried on a slim fitting singlet dress yesterday & was shocked to realise the lumpy bits on the dress were my hip bones. I have an hour glass shape so I always had hips but never ones that stuck out on the front of my body! 

      I’ve been a size 10 before - for about 5 minutes. While I am now confident about saying I’m an 8, clothes shopping is all still a bit freaky for me. It’s not that I’m focussed on the size on the label. I’m well aware the cut/line of the clothes and the designer’s style will dictate what size I need or if it will suit my body shape. The size is the starting point & it’s starting at an 8/XS/38 which is a big mind set change. It’s thinking a pair of pants will be too small & discovering they are almost too big. 

      While I’m still coming to terms with my actual new body shape and size, I’m very happy to be in this new reality.

        ...ah! I see you are from Brisbane! We lived there for a year when Mr. got a work contract there.

        I have fond (and not-so-fond, lol) memories of the weather there this time of year. It it crazy hot yet?

        Hit 42degress last weekend but this week has been in the rather pleasant low 30s (relatively of course😜). Could still wear jeans but thank goodness for air conditioning. Worse is the drought. Everything is dying or dead. Very sad & depressing.

      4. ms.sss

        I feel ya.
