Premier Protein Shakes at Amazon.com $7/Case!



Recommended Posts

Hello Everyone!

I am new to these forums and just have a couple of question. My surgery is scheduled for March 11th and I started my Pre-Op diet. I am drink 3 of the premier 30g Protein Shakes a day but i add 3 ice cubes and fresh strawberries. Is this a bad thing? I have a hard time drinking them with out the fruit. Also, is 3 shakes enough? Should i be eating a low fat (small) meal too or is it just strickly shakes? I am also very concerned about loose skin or Hair loss so i want to make sure i am getting the right amount of nutrients and Vitamins possible. Since Premier is milk based - should i switch to something that is 100 percent whey? ? (dont taste as great) How about vitamins - how do you know how much of what should you be taking? I also found collagen pills -they are suppose to help with restoring and revitalizing your skin. Has anyone tried these or have any opinions on them?? I am not sure if any of this makes sense to you guys but any help/insight would be greatly appreciated. Thanks everyone.

Sounds like a misunderstanding of the PDCAAS scoring model. The PDCAAS doesn't go from 1-100' date=' it from 0.00-1.00. Looking at the ingredients of a premier shake, it is all milk based Proteins which score 1.0- the best score available.

I typically say that premier is a "good alternative" if you cannot tolerate pure whey Protein isolate or I'd you need the convenience.

The downside to Premier shakes is that they are mostly milk based rather than whey. Meaning they do contain much of the impurities found in milk and are not a good option for the lactose intolerant. Keep in mind that immediately after surgery we are much more likely to develop a lactose intolerance. Therefore I recommend them as a convenience but not as a regular "go to" Protein source.[/quote']

Thank you I thought that was the case, you explain it well I will paste your answer there!

OTR what Protein do you use??

I use several different Proteins. But the ones I use the most are:

Syntrax Nectar® (fuzzy navel, medical unflavored)

unjury (chicken Soup, chocolate splendor)

Premier (These are for convenience)

Jay Robb (egg protein)

Nutiva® hemp (15g)

I also try to eat Protein rich foods like Greek yogurt, peas, string cheese, etc

Forgot to put quote for OTR,

Only reason I can possibly come up both is that they have a relatively high glycemic index.

I'm not really a carb counter. I have all but eliminated white carbs from my diet, but am a believer that healthy carbs (the type in fruits & veggies) should never be avoided, only moderated.

All of these questions are better answered by your Dr. and you nutritionist. Every plan is different. It is hard to say what is "best". If you are on your pre-op diet, I would think that the Dr. didn't want you eating a meal but rather sticking with Protein only. Adding strawberries adds fructose to your diet and that might be something to consider (additional calories). Premiers work for me, but others use a lot of other flavors and brands, generally the makeup of the shakes won't make a ton of difference unless you have some types of intolerance or are hard core vegan. Your Dr should also be telling you what vitamins you should be taking and when. Most common are B12, Multi and D. Some folks also need xtra Iron. But again, with board such as this one you are going to get a myriad of answers. My suggestion is get with your nutrtionists and or your surgeon and get something written down, both for your pre-op and your post-op. Make sure you ask lots of questions That way you will be ensured that you are on the right track.

      I hate these Lovenox shots.  That is all! LOL
      Feeling like a pin cushion.
      I know they are needed and it's only 10 days worth but I really hate giving myself shots. It's one of the reasons I want to be healthy because diabetes runs in my family

      Yas, I am HOME! Traveling back home was interesting but I made it.
      For the first time in my flying life we had NO drink service due to the turbulence! It was crazy. I had to call the steward to bring me water. You CAN NOT let yourself get behind on drinking! That would be dangerous.

        yeahhhhhh we are only 3 months apart on the sleeve journey. I found it has been way easier to lose with the sleeve than it was with the band...... although i loved my band. Sleeve was the easiest SX i ever had too.....

      5. SabrinaGoddess

        @bayougirlmrss I was told this is the fastest weight loss surgery, but I am not really looking for extremely fast. I want it to be healthy. This is our new tool and we can use it wisely for sure. Are you taking your biotin and vitamins?

      TOMORROW IS MY DAY! (note this did not post properly so I am still  posting it after the fact)
      I am so very excited! My sister is here with me and my son. I am so excited. My anesthesiologist called me tonight to discuss our plans for tomorrow. I am not feeling nervous at all. Just excited for the future!
      I did buy a few bottles of CFpreop which is really suppose to help you stay hydrated. It's pricey but I feel it's worth it. I tried the Watermelon tonight. I have to stop all liquids after midnight and I go into the hospital at 5:30am for check in. My surgery is at 8am.
      SO HAPPY for this journey!
      You can get the CFpreop on Amazon if anyone is interested. It comes in Watermelon and White Grape.

      Today I said I’m an XS or size 8 (Aust) at a clothing store. I never thought I’d say those words and say them with confidence. And when I commented a dress was too big on me I was told it was the smallest size. As was the belt I wanted. 
       
      I tried on a slim fitting singlet dress yesterday & was shocked to realise the lumpy bits on the dress were my hip bones. I have an hour glass shape so I always had hips but never ones that stuck out on the front of my body! 

      I’ve been a size 10 before - for about 5 minutes. While I am now confident about saying I’m an 8, clothes shopping is all still a bit freaky for me. It’s not that I’m focussed on the size on the label. I’m well aware the cut/line of the clothes and the designer’s style will dictate what size I need or if it will suit my body shape. The size is the starting point & it’s starting at an 8/XS/38 which is a big mind set change. It’s thinking a pair of pants will be too small & discovering they are almost too big. 

      While I’m still coming to terms with my actual new body shape and size, I’m very happy to be in this new reality.

        ...ah! I see you are from Brisbane! We lived there for a year when Mr. got a work contract there.

        I have fond (and not-so-fond, lol) memories of the weather there this time of year. It it crazy hot yet?

      3. Arabesque

        Hit 42degress last weekend but this week has been in the rather pleasant low 30s (relatively of course😜). Could still wear jeans but thank goodness for air conditioning. Worse is the drought. Everything is dying or dead. Very sad & depressing.

      4. ms.sss

        I feel ya.
