Hi everyone! I am so excited to share with you all that I just got a call from my advocate, and my surgery has been approved for August 20th!!!! YAY!!!!!! I am so blessed! So, starting today I am on a one week pre op diet until my surgery date. Can anyone share ways they made their shakes taste better? I am drinking the Bariatric Advantage vanilla and chocolate shakes. The consistency is awful. Any suggestions would be so helpful! Thanks yall!

Congrats! It's nice that you don't have a long wait before the surgery.

I like to mix mine with sugar-free hot cocoa (not too hot or it will get clumpy) or with leftover coffee (usually over ice for the coffee/protein powder mixture). You can also get unflavored Protein powder and add to crystal lite.

I switched from Bariatric Advantage to powders?utm_source=BariatricPal&utm_medium=Affiliate&utm_campaign=CommentLink" target="_ad" data-id="1" >unjury. I found the Bariatric Advantage too sweet and chemically tasting. I also made the shakes with skim milk plus and a few ice cubes in the blender it definitely helped.

Congrats & Good Luck!

Unfortunately, my doctor has Instructed that I only mix my shakes with water...booorring! I tried mixing 6 oz of coffee with two scoops of vanilla flavored Protein this morning. The taste was ok, but the texture is what I'm going to have to figure out. I have a feeling I will be sticking to broths more than shakes at this point. I've heard a lot about Unjury. I will have to try it. Thanks yall!

I had to switch to Unjury from BA also, I tried the vanilla and it was like trying to suck back shots of cake frosting. Gross! I really enjoy the unjury chicken Soup with just Water. I've been pretty much living off it since surgery 8 days ago. I'm getting some unjury chocolate splendor today to break up the routine. I tried it with water before and it wasn't so great, but I will use it with skim milk so I can add the 8g of protein!

I bought coconut, root beer, cinnamon and almond extract. I tried the cinnamon with vanilla I liked it. I have to Water mine down cause it's a little to thick for my liking. I will be trying coconut and root beer tomorrow.

You have a blender, right? If no, buy a Magic Bullet ($50). Grind up some ice, then add the Protein shake. Makes it taste like a milkshake! Also coconut and pineapple flavorings make a great piña colada. I even added Hershey's Cocoa to the chocolate flavored for a richer taste.

unjury has a strawberry Sorbet flavor that can be added to sugar-free Jello if you want something with some substance.

Good luck in your journey. It's going to be amazing!

      I met with my surgeon on Friday.. I've completed all my tests and all my nutrition meetings as well as meeting the weight loss requirements for my insurance. We are officially submitting to insurance for approval and I was given a surgery date of January 16th 2020 (13 days before my birthday!) Fingers crossed all goes through

      Ok, now im getting old...my body gets me up at my normal 5am dog walk even when it's the weekend, vacation, and most importantly when I'm sick. So now that I have more energy, my body wants to make sure I suffer even longer during the day when I have a cold! Damn being healthy again! (:D)

      At my Primary Physician appt, the Doc said you know you lost a whole person. When you started seeing me you were 265lbs now you're 148lbs.
      She's right... I lost the fun me 😂 Joking Joking Joking. It's amazing who keeps track when you don't like insurance and browsers feeds
