I LOVE Quest Bars but they are definitely a trigger for me. But then after surgery it might be different.

I just went to my 3 Month follow up and my doc said no Protein bars.. They are a mushy food : ( so I have dropped them altogether.

What in the world is a "mushy" food? And why is it bad?

Very strange. Both my NUT and dr say these are fine for my diet. I only eat 1/2 bar but it does help when I need to get Protein in before end of the day.

I'm not saying I agree with the doc but she said basically it isn't dense enough to keep you satisfied. I was having one as a Meal Replacement and I was feeling mighty full for a while after!! So I just listened and didn't argue... : / she said she wants me to get Protein from dense meats that will help keep me full longer. Which I do eat a lot of meats!! Sandwich meat.. Thin and trim mostly.. Salmon... Turkey burgers.... It isn't like I down one for every meal!! I have one maybe every third day... They also curb my craving for chocolate! It was strange to me cause in one breath she said no Protein Bars and in another she said you're doing great just keep doing what you're doing! Hahahaha (Eyeroll)

.Yesterday I ordered a 12 bar variety pack from Quest Nutrition's website, so that I would have something for the road. Some of my doctor appointments are not close to home. I hope I like them. And I like the idea of the class experiment, too

I really like the Quest bars. I was doing Bariatric Advantage, but grew tired of them because they tasted like cardboard. The Quest bars are wonderful and cheaper. I love all the flavors especially the Cookies and cream and the strawberry cheesecake. They can be addictive, only eat if have no other form of Protein in house like yogurt or cheese.< /p>

I use my Quest Bars for meal replacement like on the weekend if we are going riding around and my husband wants something I can't eat I will eat my bar. I love the different recipes you can do with the bars. Also if you like chips their new Quest Chips are great with 20g of Protein.

      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
