Protein Drinks



Recommended Posts

I would recommend the Premier Protein shakes from costco. They come in vanilla, chocolate, and strawberry. You get a case of approximately 18 for $25, each one contains 30 grams of protein... make sure to drink them cold. The chocolate taste like chocolate milk to me!!!

All of my Premier shakes have been fine. Of course I drink them up so fast they don't have time to go bad. I like the Premier because they have 30 grams of Protein but if I was going for taste it would be Atkins Shakes, hands down. They taste like a rich vanilla milkshake, especially when really cold. I find its best to change it up and not stick to the same thing since that tends to cause food bordem. Also you can make your own shakes and add what ever flavors you want.

I have also had an issue with the premier shakes being abnormally thick. I took them back and exchanged em. Currently I am using a hydrolized Protein powder that is super easy to digest and taste ok.

My Doc. Told me to stay away from the ensure and Atkins because of the sugar content. But I had already bought a few so im am planning on using them up on my preop

Ensure, yes, it has like 25g carbs per shake.... But Atkins shakes have maybe 4 each!! They don't have as much Protein as other shakes but they def don't have sugar or high carb count...

I vote fit the Premier as will. Yummy but 30 g Protein. 160 cals. I didn't like the vanilla, but the chocolate IS like chocolate milk. Sometimes mine are thick too, but I still like them and drink them :)

If you have a decent blender at home, there are a ton of recipes for Protein Shakes using Protein Powder. I used, and sometimes still use pure Protein powder(25 g protein per scoop), either vanilla or chocolate, or for fruity drinks, I also used Syntrax Nectar, (23 g per scoop). Syntrax also makes unflavored protein powder that you can add to food & drinks. Personally, the ready made drinks tasted gross to me so I blended my own. My favorite shake was vanilla protein powder, 1/2 small frozen banana, 1/2 cup skim milk, Water & a tablespoon of PB2- yum!

costco had no problem at taking back a case of shakes, even if the case is half empty! I think it's a common problem but nothing else has that kind of Protein in such a small container with such low carbs. Very very cold is the only way I can drink it though :-) love it in a blender with some ice!

I tried the Premier shakes from costco and the chocolate ones got so thick it was like drinking gravy. I just tried the Pure Protein Shakes and those were SO much yummier! I got the frosty chocolate and vanilla creme flavors. There is also a Cookies and creme and strawberry creme I haven't tried. You can get these at Walmart. They have 35g Protein and 4carbs/1sugar. I highly recommend these over the Premier shakes.

        Hello Joset, why haven't you been given a diet plan? Did you have your surgery in the UK? Every surgeon has a different diet, and no two people are on the same one. Weird I know. Contact your team if you can

        Mine was two weeks clear liquids

        Two weeks on soups, milk shakes and broths all with out lumps

        two weeks on pureed foods { I couldn't stomach this step }

        two weeks on soft foods like Protein yogurt, stewed mince and veg, soft scrambled eggs. Pate on hard crackers

        Then onto any food I fancied. If you struggle on any step or with any foods go back a step for a few days. Eggs, salmon and chicken are hard for beginners.

        Sorry I missed your original post, hope you are still on here.
