I am desperately needing to get Protein in, shakes just sit heavy in my sleeve. What flavors of the Isopure have you tried and liked?

My husband loves the Black or Green Ice Tea Isopures. They're a little hard to find, but he says those are his favorites. Good luck!!

Grape is the only one I truly like. The others I tolerate, although they are all better than thick, sweet milky shakes.< /p>

The two flavors I used steadily the first three months after surgery were the fruit punch and pineapply/orange/banana flavors. Be sure they are ICE cold when you drink them. They pack a dry tartness but the colder they are the less you will notice it. (at least that's my opinion) My favorite thing about the Isopure drinks was they counted toward my Protein AND Fluid intake. I am not sure where everyone else is located but I purchase them at GNC and as a member if you purchase them during the first week of the month you can receive a special buy 2 get 1 free. Doesn't sound like much until you purchase a months supply at once. You can really save a lot this way. Good luck to everyone on your journey to a new you!

GNC has them. I also found them at HEB but only one flavor. My gym (24hour) sells them too.

Just a heads up. It's like drinking a sponge. You will get instant dry mouth and a weird feeling on your teeth but its normal.

I sent my husband to get me some, I tried the pineapple banana one, yuck. It reminded me if the test for diabetes when I was pregnant. At over $5 a pop I'm afraid to try the others. How do you get all the Protein in and Water needed? Protein shakes fill me up after 3 swallows. .

Grape was the only one I could drink. I didn't mind the taste of it, and for 40g of Protein you can't really beat it.

You have to play with the flavors and find which you can stomach. The apple melon (green) isn't too bad but it's tart. The grape (purple) is the most mild IMO. The blue raspberry isn't bad but it's tart. I couldn't stand the punch, or the peach mango. The orange wasn't too bad but it didn't smell good in the bottle. How far out are you? The shakes don't fill me. I can get in all my Protein but at times I struggle with my fluids. Water doesn't go down well for me but I can drink g2 like its air and I can't do crystal light it's too sweet for me. It does get better. Just keep sipping. Good luck.

I was 2 weeks yesterday, it takes me half a day to drink a 6 oz shake. I'm the same with Water which makes me sad because I love just plain Water, I have gotten used adding the g2 to it but only rain berry sits well. This is definitely a hit and miss, I just hate spending 5 dollars on a drink I can't stomach.

I was sleeved 1/17 so we are 2 weeks apart. It will get better. I love plan Water and would drink it all day but its hard. I can't do the red g2 but the blue and purple no problem. I'm to the point where I am going to set a timer on my phone every 15 min to sip. Have you tried to thin your shake some maybe it will go down better. I know some here said they put the Isopure into a big cup of ice like sonic use and it waters down and they sip all day.

      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.

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