Yeah I am 32 and shes 28 but its all in fun. We constantly pick at each other. Its been like that since 2003.

Circa i didnt see those at sams. Imma look around. My stomach is still pretty swollen I would say. Each day gets easier to drink. I dont rush things at all. I just try a little at a time just to see how it goes.

The sleeve is an experience for sure. I love that I am never hungry. I also noticed my taste buds changed. Grape juice taste like muscadine wine lol gross. But time is what it takes to heal so imma give it just that.

Yes maam. Isopure made me sick preop. Before I just cut it 1:1 with a Powerade of the same flavor. But now I would rather not even try. I just know I would be sick lol. But I do have alot extra but I am saving it for my wifes preop and post op in Nov

Yea, it is a little icky. My husband says the aftertaste is like dog food. :lol: I agree, the EAS is the most palatable I've found so far. I like the chocolate. Syntha 6 powder is REALLY tasty too. the calories and carbs are a little higher, but ok for someone who can't meet daily requirements of anything.

GNC has LEAN SHAKE: 25g Protein, lactose free, 6 carbs, 170 calories. Flavors Strawberries n Cream and vanilla Bean are delicious especially when they're ice cold!! They have premade shakes or the powder. I've only tried premade and hope my taste buds don't change afterwards because i really like them! NO AFTER TASTE AT ALL!!

I heard Isopure (chocolate) is good, my surgery is on 3/13/12. So I don't want to say to much, it might be good the first day but after a couple of days I might think their Gross. :wacko:

I feel relieved to know that Im not the only one with a problem getting things down. Im 2 weeks post op today and my dad is getting on me so hard that Im not eating enough calories. I go to school and its so straining on me I can barely come home and do my homework and studying, he is convinced its because I dont eat enough.

I manage to get down 3 Protein Shakes a day 2 of which have some lactose free milk which adds some calories but Im at about 90g Protein a day but less than 500 calories sometimes. I try to do a couple spoons of mashed refried Beans, natural no sugar added Peanut Butter, or unsweetened applesauce. Those things get old fast. Im so tired of protein it took me 4 hours to drink my morning shake!

Does anyone know of any good Soups that are low in carbs and sugar? Or even something I can put in the blender thats not a "cream" Soup. Those are too dense for some reason and they hurt going down.

Thanx =P

Ok whomever is sick of me for saying it, my apologies, but I can't stomach the Isopure - I tried the purple, which is supposed to be wonderful. It just wasn't my cup o' tea, so's to speak.

I DID find Cytomax Pure Protein/Performance drinks at Vitamin Shoppe (3.79 a piece) and I love them. Tropical flavor (it's green - tastes like pineapple and coconut a bit) and then Tangerine (it's orange). They are made up of whey Protein isolate and have 40 g of Protein in 20 oz. I highly recommend them as they were and are the only things that so far do not make me wretch for protein intake.

Before my leak, I loved Premier Protein Drinks. Since I think that was what was mostly in my abscess, so far I'm having a hard time sipping them. I tried the strawberry ones I ordered yesterday and they are super sweet :( grrr .... I don't really do chocolate but vanilla I love, so they will be what I try for lunch today.

I'm gonna hafta try those Lean shakes vsg30815! Ty for the tip!

I have the same problem with the Protein drinks! I have the Gladiator from smoothie king in powder and instead of mixing with Water, I mix with skim milk. The first few days it tasted soooo good because it actually had taste, but now im just so tired of it. I have a hard time drinking as much as im supposed to because i cant seem to just drink drink drink... also ive started eating SOME semi solids like puree tuna and fish but it hurts soooo bad after i swallow i get chest pains... im just ready to be 2 mo post-op and not 10 days!

Cytomax Pure Performance Protein is at Vitamin Shoppe. They are undergoing a change on the bottles right now and it's being rebranded to Cytomax's whey isolate or Cytomax's whey Protein (black bottle, white writing). I LOVE LOVE LOVE them. Try the cytomax if you are low on protein, doesn't matter which diet you've progressed to either, they are Clear Liquids. Make sure you get the ones that say 160 cals on the side, there is another kind that they make and those aren't the ones I'm referring to. These have 40 g of protein and little else in them.

For the full liquid dieters and mushies and regular eaters, they make protein puddings that you can get at GNC or Vitamin Shoppe that are good. I like the chocolate (and I usually don't do chocolate). It's Power Pak Protein pudding. I think a case is 17 usd and each can comes with a pull back lid (like the old bottles of beer, remember? the flip back tab and you peel it back) and has a plastic lid for each pudding in the box/case. They are 8 oz ea. so you cannot eat it all in one sitting (well I can't, yet) but they have 30 g of protein in them. I don't remember how much if you buy them as a single item, but Vitamin Shoppe sells these and the Cytomax drinks in a refrigerated bin and you should only buy one or two, try them and see if you can "live" with them.

Here's a tip that I shoulda known better: DO NOT BUY by the case of anything until you KNOW you can deal with it for a while (i.e. protein powders, drinks, puddings, anything....etc.). Don't waste your money ok?

Premier Protein shakes are awesome. They are sold at costco (not Sam's) and are 25 usd a case. They come in chocolate and Vanilla at costco. I was a dummy and ordered a case online - strawberry - and those are super sweet. I don't like them at all. So remember what I said pls on do not buy until you know what you are getting and can you "live" with it.

I saw the lean shakes at Smoothie Factory tonight VSG! (I took my son after I went to the gym so he could have a "treat") I totally forgot to look into trying them... do you know if they sell them individually? I'll check my gym next go too. Note to self, note to self, note to self.....

Hope this post helps anyone that might need it. Good luck to you all... :) xoxo

      So my surgery anniversary date is on the 24th of this month, but I had my 1-year follow up early with my surgeon this morning (I have another 1-year followup at the hospital on Monday to get my bloodwork and labs done).
      Anyhoo...my surgeon was very pleased with my results (and so where the office staff apparently, because 3 of the front desk ladies came by my exam room to give me props/high fives/generally gawk at me).
      But get this: he asked if I would be willing to come in for a future photoshoot so that I could be on a poster! And I was all, ummmm....no thanks, LOL.

      Today was a really tough day and I turned to food (and a watered down glass of wine). The interesting part was that I felt REALLY full after eating half my go to cheat snack, tortilla chips with cheese. So the GBP is doing its job!

        Click on your pic/name. A list will pop up and scroll down to “my surgery”. You can change Surgery specifics there.

        To adjust weight stay on that same page, look left and click on progress. Voila!

      The only way I can tell that I'm losing weight is from the scale and my clothes "getting bigger".
