Help, please! Premier Protein shakes taste awful to me.. Need recommendations!



Recommended Posts

i would cut them with other things. Try mixing the shake with cold coffee. Coffee was the one thing that got that chemical taste out of my mouth. I also blend the vanilla with fruit. A lot of times your taste changes after surgery so maybe it will taste better post op.

Your taste does change. Right after surgery I could not stand Premier....could not gag them down....too thick...too chalky. Tried one the other day and decided it wasn't too bad after all and ended up buying three cases (because they were on sale for $19.99..LOL). Since my surgery up to this time...I used GENEPRO...it is oderless and tasteless...I mix it with Crystal Light....30 grams of Protein....I get it from Amazon.< /p>

Someone just gave me a couple of Orgain's. I'm on the fence - they're not as sweet as Premier and I liked the taste of the first one, but the second one was a goopy lumpy mess and I'm scared to try it again!

Please read the GENEPRO thread on here. It doesn't have 30 g of Protein per scoop, it actually has 10g. They claim its 3x more bio available so it's EQUIVALENT to 30g of another brand, but the science is questionable or at least unverified by independent research.

Just FYI.

I can't do premier either before or after surgery. Tastes plastic to me. I use Syntrax and BSN powders and the occasional premade Atkins or GNC Lean.

GENEPRO works for me!!! Blood work right on target....life saver when I could not gag anything else down. I love it!....everyone has their right of opinion. ..I think it is great.

Sounds like you got a bad one. I use Orgain quite a bit and never had one that was goopy or lumpy.

Syntrax Nectars are my personal favorites. I use 1 and 1/2 scoops of product with 5 ounces of liquid that way you get 35 grams of Protein in a 5 to 6 pounce serving, no product can touch that.

If you are interested you can view my video taste tests of many brands and flavors on my blog at http://cuttingthefatwithaknife.blogspot.com

By the way the GENEPRO people have sent me a letter Texas lady showing that their product is only 10 grams of Protein per serving. as you cannot get 30 grams of protein product from a 15 gram serving size ( 1 tablespoon is 15 grams) Their study is a spreadsheet no actual study was done and the award they say they received was sponsored by musclegen which is the company that makes GENEPRO. Also your blood work doesn't show protein levels, serum protein, which is almost never looked at in blood does not show protein intake, only protein in the blood at that time, just so you know.

I find diluting with a little bit of milk and adding SF Hazelnut Syrup (1 tbsp) makes it really nice. Try adding some SF syrups?

Another company sent me some samples of ICONIC...It is pretty good tasting. You have to order it from Amazon. It has 20 grams of Protein. Don't be bashful about asking for samples!! I do....you would be surprise as to how many will send samples.

Try the Atkins shakes. They have 10-15 grams Protein. My other fav is six star. But my taste buds change a lot. That may change next week. Lol.

Give Bariatric Advantage Protein shakes a try. I especially like the Orange Creme flavor, which is very light. These are available online. You can also get the vanilla flavor and add 4-5 drops of Mio (Crystal Light) flavorings as you prefer...

      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
