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.

      2 Days Till Surgery!   It's time! Time to start my clear liquids! I am prepared! Tomorrow I will only take in clear protein, bone broth and jello for the next two days.   My surgery will be done on Monday, December 9th at 8:00 AM. I have to be at the hospital at 5:30 AM (EWWW) but who cares? LOL. Funny how you don't get all upset about doing things that are not so fun when you are doing it for a purpose! . I don't plan on doing much this weekend. I have one errand to do and after that is over I will return to my hotel room and go into prayer and meditation. Believer or not, you got to do what you need to do in order to get your heart and mind in a healthy place. . I have a Pre-Op drink I ordered that is supposed to really help your body hydrate before surgery. It's not in the photo just because I don't have it in my hands yet. I will put photos of it up when I get it. . All I can think about it how blessed I am to be able to get this done. I know how it feels to be healthy and happy then have it snatched away. It makes this all the more joyful for me. . So, it's time to lay it down and start letting my mind process what we are getting ready to do. . By the way...funny story. My doc said he had to cancel a surgery because his patient said she thought "Mashed Potatoes" was a clear food! Um, there will be no mashed potatoes for me! LOL This is HAPPENING! . Last thought for today: I knew when they drew my blood yesterday it was going to leave a nasty bruise and I was right. I am so sensitive to that kind of stuff.

      Cold no.2 since surgery. The funny part is now Ive lost my voice. I feel better in my sinuses now, but my voice is 90% gone. Losing your voice as a person who talks as a teacher for a living is so funny. You feel normal and when you speak, nothing comes out. I hope it goes over by Monday, but if it doesn't oh well. Ill be at school and cant talk to the students. Oh gee darn.

        I hope it gets better. I sing and I know how it is to lose your voice. I always get scared that it won't come back. LOL but it always does. Try Fisherman's Friend. It's nasty but it works. You can find it on amazon.

      Got my haircut today and its always amazing how much better i feel afterwards.
      i have always considered it an odd thing that i enjoy a haircut so much.
      The smell of the barbershop (no salons allowed) and the whole scissors and clippers feel and sound is so relaxing.
      I have had the same barber since 1987 and i am not sure how i will handle it if that guy ever dares to die on me. I am pretty sure that the magazines on the bottom of the stack are the same ones from my first visit.
      just started Ron Powers -Mark Twain Biography- enjoying it
