Hello everyone, What brands and flavors of Protein Shakes do you use and like? I know we all have different tastes but, it would be interesting to know the brands that are most popular. Where did you purchase them?

I used before and right after, and occasional now, the EAS carbadvantage. You can get them at Walgreens, Walmart, and sam's club. I found they are cheaper at Walmart than Walgreens and then even cheaper in bulk at sam's club. I love the ready to drink vs powder because I always thought that the powder was gritty. These are smooth and taste good. vanilla and chocolate. I also bought a "flavorless" Protein at Vitamin Shoppe. I did put it in Jello and what not but it does change the flavor completely. Hope this helps!

I used to buy from GNC and get amplified whey Protein but that costs like 50 bucks the GNC person said its better and absorbs better but can't afford that so I get just whey generic kind at target for 16 bucks!! I drink a shake and just get vanilla!! At GNC they have crazy good favors. I had my surgery 10 months ago and still losing 1.5 pounds a week total of 113 pounds good luck

Oh the GNC and generic aren't as greedy

Gritty

Just be careful if you're going to try Protein shots. My surgeon said that the collagen based protein is not nearly as good for you as the whey. Even though there is whey usually it's not enough to do any good.

Oh yeah, I personally like EAS and Atkins. But I recommend trying several kinds and flavors. My surgeon recommends Unjury but I'm not a big fan of it. She likes mixing strawberry powder with lemonade crystal light. It's actually pretty good.

I just tried the Pure Protein chocolate and really like that one. They have Vanilla also. Each has 25G of protein. I got it at Walmart. I also tried Matrix Mint Choc cookie and it was good too but, more for an afternoon shake for me.

My favorite is GNC Amplified. It goes cost more but I think it is worth it. It mixes up better and not gritty. My favorite flavor is Cookies and cream and then banana cream is my second choice.

I just picked up two containers of Syntrax Nectar...hoping they'll be good for a fruity flavored Protein. I don't want all chocolate so need to mix it up. I also bought the unflavored in hopes to mix it with chicken broth or other foods like oatmeal, cream of wheat etc when it's allowed.

        I haven't pooped in a weed and I'd love a 4 pound poo right now lol

      2. ms.sss

        Lol, yeah, I've been known to drop 3-ish lbs after a good (and long awaited) poop.

        .....or even after a moderate to severe dumping episode. yikes.

        Those are championship cups for both you guys! :) I personally came up a 1.4lb winner this morning. ;) hehehehe.

      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
