I just tried the Premium Protein...I liked it :) But am going to try the GNC's AMP WHeybolic Extreme 60 chocolate since it was rated so highly on here!

Something to think of is that even though some shakes may be 30-46gm of Protein per serving, sometimes these servings call for 12-16 oz prepared. This is quite a lot to drink in the beginning.

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.

Each 8oz serving of our Meal Replacement is fortified with 28 grams of medical-grade whey protein, complex carbohydrates, dietary Fiber, essential fatty acids, and 23 Vitamins and minerals. It can be used as a healthy alternative to Breakfast, a midday snack, or a smart way to indulge a late-night craving. This also makes it an ideal pre-operative weight loss shake or post-operative meal replacement for weight loss surgery patients. Add 2 scoops for 46 g of protein

It might be 8 oz or 10 oz of Water, whatever suits you. Adding gelled chia seeds really brings out the flavor and taste, even when using only 1 scoop.

No problem. 3 scoops is 60 g of Protein for the GNC shakes. It is definitely over kill to try and consume 60 g of Protein as here is how it breaks down :

1. 15-20 g protein, average amount for average adult to consume.

2. 20-25 g protein, average amount for WLS adult to consume.

3. 25-30 g protein, average amount for athletic adult to consume

Adults typically cannot process more then the upper values on these ranges above. Eating more will result in storage of protein or elimination, neither which are ideal.

A friend just sent me some Proasis Protein bullets in the mail, they are casein, whey, and collagenic protein isolate, so 2 goods and 1 useless. 50g protein each. Opinions?

Most collagen is considered useless, but not all. Please consider the following research on hydrolyzed collagen:

      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!
