There are a lot of Protein shakes out there. My advice to you is to buy samples first BEFORE you invest in a huge tub or giant package. Quite a few people buy Isopure from GNC or Premier from Costo/sam's club and bring it right back or give it away. Additionally, there are some people who really do like these brands.

I prefer powders?utm_source=BariatricPal&utm_medium=Affiliate&utm_campaign=CommentLink" target="_ad" data-id="1" >unjury or Syntrax's nectar because it mixes well, is palatable, and I like the flavors. Both of these you can get sample for too!

For rtd shakes, i like pure Protein vanilla, chocolate, banana and strawberry. Also, GNC rtd lean shakes.

For powders, GNC orange cream total lean is the best so far.

I'm wanting to try Isopure dutch chocolate.< /p>

The best advice any of us can give you is get a variety. If you only get one type of Protein shake you may get tired of it real quick.

Fiddleman... I saw the cake batter one how is it? I have the banana cream one and it goes really well with a scoop of PB and milk.

Cake batter is good for me. I will try out banana cream light next.

Yup - the Amped Wheybolic 60 is a really nice recovery Protein shake. I have been a sucker for the cookie and cream flavor, but am going to branch out and try some other flavors.

Chike Banana Magic' date=' 46 g of Protein in a shake

Sent from my iPhone using VST[/quote']

46 g is a lot of Protein to consume in a single serving. The body usually cannot process more an 30 g in a sitting where the remainder is converted to fat or passes through. Do you know anything special about the Chike Protein Shake that would make it easier to process more than 30 g in a sitting? Banana flavor sounds awesome. I love banana creme flavor.

      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!
