Meal Replacement with Stevia?



Recommended Posts

Hi I am new to this world... I have just jumped my last hoop and visited with the nutritionist. So, I was given two options for my pre-op diet. Here is my question though.. All the shakes that are listed as Meal Replacements have suralose (splenda) or aspertame. I get nasty Migraines from both, I like the dreamsicle by Jay Robb, but that is just a Protein Shake. Does anyone know of any Meal Replacement shakes that are made with stevia instead of splenda?

I tried googling. I didn't find anything, which is why I was hoping someone who had the surgery may have more experience finding a drink. What a nice warm welcome to this forum... thanks..

Thanks Mrs. B.

Since I wrote the original post here is what i have found as far as Stevia Protein.

Jay Robb

Nature's Plus Ultra Energy Shake- 25 g of progein 4 grms Fiber, 8 grms Carbs ( I love the chocolate), but add more milk then they list or else it is too sweet.

I found Power crunch bar are sweetened with stevia- but they don't have the best stats.

I have also tried Garden of Life Raw Protein- I had to put more stevia extract in it because it was a little bit lacking and took some effort swallowing down.

VEGA One- I would skip this one though- it did something aweful to my stomach, and has been recalled in some places.

Vega energy- Still haven't tried this one.

Designer Whey- Just bought it havent' tried it yet.

also have found

Tera's Whey Protein. Just bought it havent' tried it yet

Biochem Whey- Just bought it havent' tried it yet

Still haven't found one I LOVE love.. but some are more palatable then others

Thanks I went ahead and got 8 different samples packs (4 different flavors) with About Time. I loved that they didn't just offer chocolate, vanilla and strawberry.< /p>

I just purchased Jay Robb a bit pricey but I like also. I try to stay with stevia sweetened Proteins only.

I used Thorne Mediclear and I did the capsules, too. The product my surgeon's office recommended was just absurd -- I'd never put that crap in my body. I put the nutritionist through some extra work but it was worth it. I wanted a true liver cleanse for my pre-op, not artificial sweeteners or dairy, etc.

How about getting some without any sweetener and adding your Stevia when you make the up? I was thinking about doing something like that for at least part of the liquid diet. Found some good prices on Swanson's website. They have sections for non-GMO, too.
