Isolate is best!!! I found minds at Walmart and most drug stores sell it too. Also do your surgeon have a store that sell supplies we need. Minds does in NC. You can also order online.

Yes it does matter. Walmart and GNC have many options. I got mine online from vitacost. I went with Jay Robb because I don't feel comfortable with artificial sweeteners and Jay Robb uses stevia.

Where are you seeing the word Whey? Are you looking at the ingredients or the front label?

Whey should be the first ingredient listed. Isolate is the best, but concentrate is perfectly fine as well.

Make sure the ingredients DO NOT include the woes Gelatin or collagen. These are Protein sources many manufacturers use to make their labels look impressive but are of ZERO benefit as these Proteins pass through the digestive system completely intact.

What is the product you are looking at?

The GNC product is the best of the 2 I can comment on.

The body fortress is also a good option although IMO it tastes horrible.

As for the 3rd option from Wal-Mart since I'm not sure which product it is I can't say much.

Whatever you do stay away from the protein shots.

Six star is another one of those good quality if you can handle the taste deals. I've got a jug of it but dread having to drink it.

They are completely useless. There is no upside.

Hello All:

I am in need of some help myself. I can't find a very good tasting Protein power, does anyone have any good suggestions. And from what my surgeon states it is very important to use the Whey Isolated, because it helps with the weight loss and builds muscle mass. I was using Unjury the chicken flavor, it's great and it taste like chicken noodle Soup, but it has a lot of sodium it in, but if you do not have high blood pressure it's a great way to get your protein in, and the weight melts off. I just can't use any of the products since my surgery, something is going on with my taste buds.

whey isolate is the best protein available. But there are definitely other good options. In the Whey category I recommend

1-Unjury (chocolate splendor or chicken soup)

2-Nectar by Syntrax (fuzzy navel, cherry, or truffle)

3- Chike (this is IMO the best tasting protein supplement

Then there are other good protein sources like:

Hemp protein (I buy Nutiva 15g)

Egg protein (Jay Robb)

I get approximately 1/3-1/2 of my protein from whey about the same from whole food items & the balance from egg or hemp powders.< /p>

      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.
