Recommended Posts

yea I'll let you know cause if they do taste good I bought a case of them at Sams club for $20 and that is unfortunately cheaper then the lean Protein but I don't do the powder I do the premix.

I'm in love with GNC lean Protein Shakes and since I can still have the Atkins advantage ones i do the mocha latte one in the morning a chocolate one at lunch then I'm trying Premier Protein at night after dinner since it is 30g of Protein I'm hoping that I can starve off the hungry and attempt to go to bed early. although I seem to have insomnia and sleep and hour or two and wake up. so I get hungry!

Have you had this insomnia long? If so, you should have a sleep study done.

I have much of the same problem and I'm a diagnosed narcoleptic.

I too get hunger pangs throughout the night. I've learned that doing a few crunches puts enough pressure on my stomach to make them subside quick.

I am booked for January 7th with Dr. Ariel Ortiz! I fly in the 6th and out the 11th. I can't believe it's finally happening. I just bought some Protein Shakes and different broths just to start the ball rolling…. AHHHHH!

I am getting mine on January 3rd with Dr. Ramos Kelly in Tijuana. Can't wait! Anyone else going to be at Angeles on either Jan 2nd or 3rd, or staying at Hotel Lucerna Jan 4th or 5th? Any other Dr Kelly patients going to be sleeved on those dates?

@@mkw10 Hey tried that other shake and it was pretty good. I'm so worried that I will not like the same things after surgery so I'm trying not to buy too much before I go for my surgery. So I'm going to just buy this case and buy enough of the flavors I like til I try them all after surgery so I can see what I like and then just go buy by bulk.

@@Veronica Page That's the worst when you have an issue and no diagnosis. I had to do a test overnight and throughout the next day to get my narcolepsy diagnosis. It took 5 misdiagnoses from GPs/PCPs, an intro to psychology class, and moving cross country to get mine.

My biggest surgery day worry is the anesthesia. I've read that narcoleptic patients have a harder time regaining consciousness afterward. It may take hours for me to finally wake up. Still gotta talk to Dr. Ortiz about it.

Currently on Atkins, and mostly hate it. No carb cravings but I'm bored to death and my body resists losing weight. Sticking with it to the end of the semester and then onto "slim fast" diet.

Just depends I have been trying different ones I like advantedge strawberry and cream ready to drink ones found at Walmart I also love the GNC lean Protein ready to drink ones vanilla bean is my fav also core power light strawberry n banana is good too I also used whey vanilla Protein Powder with almond milk and it was ok.. There's few more I want to try just waiting to get paid

I started yesterday (because I wanted to see if I could do it. Not because I was told to) I'm having 2 shakes a day. I think I may move to three because I do get a little hungry between Breakfast and lunch. I have breakfast around 8 and lunch around 2!

Does the Premier Protein come in a variety pack or just one flavor? That's the one you got at Sam's Club right?

yikes...only came in one flavor! but I also purchased the 100 calorie snack size bottles too which are nice. I carry mine in my scrub pants and drink it when I just need it to tie me over but don't want the snack machine to tempt me!

      Hey October Surgery friends...how are you doing? I've lost 15 lbs since surgery on 18th.42 lbs overall. Wearing clothes that feel great. Had a bout of cold and stomach flu and still having some nausea off and on after that but getting better, I think. 
      Seems like I fill up and have minor pain quicker when I eat hot foods rather than cold. Anyone else notice this?
      Still sooo glad I did this.
