Sooo Sick Of Protein Shakes!



Recommended Posts

I found Bariatric Advantage unflavored on Amazon but trying to figure out whar to put it in. Maybe Soup? Baratric advantage chocolate is best so far. Try adding blueberries or cinnamon or Peanut Butter. Helps. I made pumpkin pie shakes the other day.

I love the Bariatric Advantage iced latte. But I am sure I am going to be sick of it before long. I have read people using unflavored Protein. Just wondering where I can get that.

Go to unjury.com for unflavored protein... I mix mine in broth... The only problem is it can't be too hot or the Protein will clump.

This post was perfect timing for me. I am 8 days in to my 10 day preop and am sooooooooooo sick of the taste in my mouth and of those protien shakes......It is helpful to know I am not alone. I have heard that if you blend the shakes with some ice and eat with a spoon it at least changes the consistency. Might give that a try!!

LOL! GeauxForIt - If I could have chicken salad, Beans and tuna, I wouldn't be half as miserable! I am ONLY allowed liquid Protein and broth until Nov 12...

I'm in the same boat with y'all! At 2 weeks post op I have been on shakes and broth for a month. Reading how people can start purée at 3 weeks out bums me out cuz I can't start them till week 4. I was thinking about getting some Greek yogurt and trying a small bit early. I won't go as far as puréed meals until my doc says ok tho.

Donny please follow your surgeons advice. I TOTALLY understand the frustration!!! I am on day 5 of a 2 week liquid preop. I trust my Dr and wish I was one of the ones that didn't have to worry about this liquid stuff. But I think the ketosis finally kicked in and I am not hungry anymore. Just choking down the shakes. So glad you are postop and doing well. YOU CAN DO THIS!!!

My surgery center gave me all kinds of different smoothie recepes...blend strawberry injury with crystal lite and ice cubes, or put chocolate into a cup of Decaf coffee/steamed skim milk (skinny latte at Starbucks) and its like a mocha that was great to have a hot beverage. U can put the unflavored mixed into Jello, or put in hot broth. You cant just drink with milk only, I was going crazy!

      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.
