Love Power Crunch vanilla and also the chocolate mint (think Thin Mints) they are more "light" than Quest... but a nice change of taste... but the Quest bars are more filling for me for a "grab and go" meal... go someplace where you can buy bars in different flavors before you buy a box full... you have to find what works for you

I have yet to find a Protein Bar that I like....until now. Natures Valley Protein. There are 3 different flavors and easily found at Walgreens, grocery store, etc. It's not so much a super high protein bar as it is an easy snack for on the go that doesn't have tons of carbs....10g protein, 6 g sugar, 5 g Fiber and 190 calories. I travel all day for work, so it's hard to actually have lunch. I have a 1/2 for a mid-day snack almost every day. (Can't eat a whole one...get too full).

I like pure Protein Bars (at CVS/Waldbaums)….most have 20g Protein and about 200 calories….not bad on carbs and pretty low in sugar.

You can purchase the Quest Bars and Power Crunch at Allstar health. com. Very reasonable. Power crunch vanilla is my fav.

5 net carbs is great, but 340 calories is more than I tend to eat in a meal. Hard to balance.

Really? 340 cal for a meal is about right, for 3 meals a day that's only a little over a 1000 cal per day, any less than that and your body will go into starvation mode

Shmily, would you mind sharing your 400 calorie, 90 gr Protein menu. I'm running at 600 calories and can't seem to get more than 70 gr protein. I log every bite on myfitnesspal to be sure. I'm only 3 weeks post op though and actually expected to hit 800-900 calories minimum by week 5 so will probably get easier then.

I have a Premier Protein shake for Breakfast... 30 gr Protein and 170 cal. At lunch, I make protein ice cream with another shake, I add 1 scoop of a Protein powder which has 23 gr protein. That is 30 x 2 + 23. That is 83 grams. Then for my other meal I have either a small amount of bison which is loaded in protein, you have had a small amount of most any lean meat. The 3rd meal I have Greek Yogurt and cottage cheese, all low fat of course. I drink well over 100 oz of Water. I COULD have some soft veggies but I haven't wanted any and would rather have the yogurt and CC. The Greek yogurt is about 6-8 gr protein, depending on how much I eat, that is about 45 cal. The CC is high in protein and I use about 2 Tb maybe.

      I feel like I've finally gotten past the biggest hurdle. Surgery date is September 6th, the day after Labor Day, and yesterday I got my insurance approval letter. I've followed everything they've told me to do, and I've even lost 30 lbs on my own since hubby had to change his diet for diabetes. No worries now about having to do 4 weeks of the liver shrinking diet instead of 2. On my initial visit, if I had gained just 5lbs I would have had to do 4 weeks. It's getting closer. Just 2 more months to wait.

        Although the prep work took energy, I found the biggest hurdle was post-operative. The first 48 hrs were extremely uncomfortable. I did an overnight and trying to down the liquids, Tylenol, and especially the barium was rough. Thankfully though, I got away with only having to have 1 belly injection after surgery. Needless are not my thing.

      I am looking for people to connect with that are 4-5 years out. Many of the support sights I go to are all newbies. And while I enjoyed that when i first had my surgery and found it useful, I am looking to exchange ideas with folks that are out a few years. I am slowly gaining weight back and losing my excitement. I don't want that!
