Soups/full Liquids?

Recommended Posts

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.

I did a quick internet search because I love lurking here and picking up tips, and found that you can order the Premier products directly from their website. Good luck, and full steam ahead!

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' date=' 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[/quote']

Thanks for the tips! Yes, Lean shake are sold individualy at GNC ~ make sure it's cold when you drink it! I've also been experimenting with nectar protein. I tried the Twisted cherry and added a Great Value Cherry Limeade Drink Mix (crystal light knock off from Walmart) and it was GREAT!! Keep the suggestions coming ~ my day is TUESDAY!!

        It will be interesting to watch as this theory develops. Thanks for posting!

      Feel like it's time for a status update, I haven't been on here regularly in a while and I need to keep my mindset focused on my goals.
      I haven't weighed myself in ~ 3 weeks.  I think I'm becoming the opposite of "obsessive" about tracking my progress and it could cause me some issues.  The good thing is that there have still been quite a number of NSV's happening that is telling me that I'm still progressing without knowing what the scale says.
      First one is that a belt I bought about 5 weeks ago because all my other belts were too big is also on the last hole so I'll have to buy yet another belt again.  second, I bought new jeans about a month ago and I have a lot more slack in the waist than I did when I purchased them.  I also boarded a plane and had about 8 inches of slack in the belt.  Finally, I hit my goal last week of being able to ride go-carts with my kids.  The last time I tried about 4 years ago, I had to leave because I couldn't fit in the harness.  This was sweet victory and I showed those two how it was done on the race course!!  😈

      I just looked through all my old pants after my pre-op pants started getting to big. Keep in mind that I wear men's pants (usually cargos) because I am so tall 5'10"/5'11" ish. I also find that men's baggies tend to fit me better.
      I started out at a 44 in waist pant and quickly found that I was back down to my 42's. So even when thise got to be too big, I had to start pulling old clothes out of storage. After finding my 38's, I thought that these would not yet fit, but when I tried them on, they fit perfectly. I also found some older pants that now fit better than I remembered. What a relief! It's not like I can pop down to the store like I could do in the US and the styles here in Sweden are all skinnt jeans which I cant stand. I also found some 36's, but I'm not mentally ready to try those on yet. The biggest challenge will be buying women's clothing again.

      slow and steady wins the race.  don't get discouraged and just keep at it. Let your sleeve do its job and try not to stress yourself out.
      hope you are all having a great summer and enjoying what your sleeve has given you.
      just got back from a wedding in OR. and man am i afraid to get on the scale

        Great reminder about how fast you can lose weight. The mind games we play with ourselves are the worst.
