Hey everyone!

I am 5 days post op. I have to be on my full liquid diet for 2 weeks. I'm getting tired of the health wise Protein drinks my Bari center gave me, and they are gross!! Can I get any suggestions of where to get more? What are the best with the most Protein? Where can I get them?

Premier Protein chocolate has my ENTIRE family now using them for a meal - reasonably close in taste/texture to chocolate milk.

unjury - it's made with a Protein isolate, which is suggested by my doc. I think it's absorbed better, but don't quote me on that.

You can order it on line at www.unjury.com

I like the chocolate Splendor, vanilla and strawberry.

If you prefer the ones made with Water, order a Syntrax Nectar sample pack (or two):

You mix most of them with water. Or you can pick out individual flavors of Syntrax nectar to buy here:

I mixed each packet with 8 oz. of ice water, and the numbers were 100 calories, 24 grams Protein, 0 grams carbs. My favorite flavors are the Roadside Lemonade, Lemon Tea, Grapefuit, Fuzzy Navel, and Twisted cherry.< /p>

We don't have a costco here. I'm talking about watery Protein drinks. The Unjury chocolate and strawberry is good, just tired of the flavor.

What about a SAMs club? I love both choco and vanilla. U can get on Amazon too

My favorite is GNC's Wheybolic Extreme 60. The Protein is a little pricy, but it gives you 60 grams of protein for three scoops. It tastes like HI C fruit punch.

We have tried many Protein powders. Premier Protein shakes are the favorite. Also, be sure and check out SF Torani syrups, or adding Crystal Light powder or SF pudding powder to flavor your shakes. So many choices!

Walmart sells EAS powder and it was okayed by our nutritionist. It does not have the awful chalky taste of Bariatric Advantage powder.

It's also on sale B1G1 and 10% off right now!

It tastes like chocolate milk (when made with milk) and has 30 grams of Protein per scoop.

I also like Premier Protein, vanilla and chocolate. I bought the first ones at BJ's, then ordered them on Amazon. Also, I like Muscle Milk and Carnation Instant Breakfast. Good luck.

Ideal Protein chocolate shakes are amazing. However they are $4 each!

I see you're in Michigan too. Premier Protein is also sold at Meijer. Haven't tried it yet as I haven't gotten over being sick of the ones I had.

      New found appreciation for you all!
      So Im back in the US to take care of my aging father and it seems like more than ever that being bigger is the norm everywhere here. I cant say that Ive been the best, healthiest me at the moment, but I think you all Americans are doing GREAT to even be working towards the goal of getting healthier in face of all this temptation (even if you are a "slow loser"). So give all yourselves a pat on the back!

      Hello,  I am brand new on here. 
      The doctor qualified me yesterday for the surgery, so now I have to take 12 weeks of education classes and then he said they will schedule the surgery 4-6 weeks after I complete the classes. 
      I am excited to start this new journey.

      Am at the half-way mark of the six month pre-op program.  So excited!  Got clearance from psychologist this morning, so I scheduled my surgery consult for early March.  It is becoming more real now.  Have lost 18 pounds so far, since I began this journey on 12/18/19.
