Premeire Protein Drinks from Costco - BEST EVER



Recommended Posts

They will definitely make it so I can get my Protein in, I just have to tell the cheapskate in me it's ok that they're more expensive then the powder. :)

I put a lot of value on not gagging and wretching. If you look at it that way, the price isn't an issue ;)

I was the same way, I kept trying to find a cheap(ER) Protein that I could stand and it finally got to the point that I was either going to have to spend more and just get the premieres or not get enough Protein. One I my biggest fears about the surgery was looking like death warmed over once I started really losing and most say that is cause by lack of protein.. So wallet lost out to looking healthy. :)

Body by Vi is a multi level marketing hustle. They sell mediocre(at best) Meal Replacement shakes that are no better than buying ensure or slim fast.

As is typical around almost all MLM products there is a lot of hype & excitement. They really need this hype to get you to pay their ridiculous prices for their products.

Lets compare their product to another popular one many here use.

Premier Protein

12pk of shakes are 18.88

They have 30g Protein per shake

quick math that comes to 5.23cents per gram of protein

Body by Vi

30 serving bag is 49

It contains 12g protein per serving

Same quick math it's 13.6cents per gram

30 X 12 = 360

49 / 360 = 0.136

Just out of curiosity lets compare that to nectar protein, which uses micro filtered whey protein isolate. The highest quality protein you can get.

Syntrax® nectar

144 serving tub is 32.41

It contains 6g protein per serving

The math here comes out to 3.75cents per gram

144 X 6 =864

32.41/ 864 = 0.0375

So as you can easily see, Body by Vi is almost 4 times as expensive as the highest quality protein on the market. And is almost 2.5 times the cost of the more convenient RTD.

      Me: Hey Siri, Is it raining outside? (for my morning walks with the dogs)
      Siri: I don't think it's raining at the moment.
      Wet Dogs: Then why are we wet? This damn Siri person is more stupid than we are.

      I received my nutrition book and checklist today! I am so very excited (and a tad bit scared too) Each day this is becoming a reality!
      I created a new blog post about how BRAVE we all are for doing this. Because I think we are! Most of us know the horrors of people calling us nasty names, saying we can't control ourselves, we are easy targets for people's verbal attacks! But I feel we are BRAVE because we are taking control over our lives and creating a new world of happiness.

      Today I scheduled my mental evaluation and my nutritionist appointments. Yes, we are moving along quiet nice.  December 9th will be here before you know it.
      I have informed my inner circle of family about the surgery and I will be keeping it in my CORE!

      Well, it has been a while since I posted here, but my journey continues. As for breaking my stall, I was able to get down to 214 with the help of a friend via our Fitbit fitness trackers which has made me ecstatic! Since that has happened I was fortunate enough to have my insurance company approve a panniculectomy to remove the panniculus (THIS is the correct term, NOT pannus, see this reference: https://www.merriam-webster.com/medical/panniculus) that has been deviling me for years, even before I had bariatric surgery. It was to the point that it was hanging down far enough to cover my pubic area, covered half my thighs when I would sit, and also drooped between my legs which I could hardly manage to keep together when sitting. For any males that may read this, for a woman that is pretty uncivilized, not to mention, unladylike especially when wearing a dress or skirt - just looks slovenly to say the least. Despite the numerous skin issues I had the last couple of years, my health insurance insisted the procedure was cosmetic... 🤐 . I would guess no one that is saying so has been in the bariatric patient's shoes. The damn thing was just getting to be a self-esteem killer in addition to a medical nuisance requiring many visits to my primary care physician, and interfering with my mobility. Now, I realize there are folks with more egregious panniculus sag issues, but the fact that it interferes with mobility is an important consideration.
      One thing I have to say is that this surgery is drastically different from any other I've had. Things occur that are deemed routine, expected even, after a panniculectomy that would be downright unacceptable after any other procedure. This plastic surgery experience is definitely a learning experience that is still unfolding as I key this entry. For one thing, the swelling is a story all it's own, I had no clue my abdomen could get so large, so quickly, without causing my skin to just split open - it's crazy! So far, I'm pleased to have been able to get this procedure despite may be perceived as drawbacks, just to get the pendulous adipose tissue demon off of my person. Here are a few links to information about this procedure for anyone considering it in the future:

I will provide updates periodically on my progress of this surgical recovery. Have a wonderful day!
