Hiya ive done a lot of pre-made taste tests, videos are available ( im repetitive) but i never found a premade that tasted like anything good. Not even the premier , i barfed first time i tried them. The problem with boost, ensure etc. is the sugar and carbs.

Boost contains 20 GRAMS OF SUGAR and 41 Grams of CARBS. That not far off from a Hershey bar or a twix!

You have to understand one basic fact. Protein shakes were not originally designed for weight loss, but were designed to replace a meal, or to add calories to muscle builder types. It is only recently that we see the advent of weight loss appropriate Protein Shakes. ALWAYS ALWAYS check the labels. Every special K, Boost, Atkins etc all are high in sugars and carv=bs, not one is fit for a bariatric patient. Even Muscle milk has a muscle milk light because the regular is high in sugar carbs and calories.

Heres a tip buy shaker cups, load it in the morning with your Protein mix inside, if you dont like that put a ziplock baggy with your daily protein mix powder in it inside the bottle. then just put it in your bag, at work pick up your 1% milk or Water from the cooler right into the bottle and shake shake youre having a shake.

Easy Peasy.

Heres a link to those taste tests if you like.

Boost is not a very good option for a ready-to-drink shake. There are much better options out there with more Protein and fewer carbs/sugars. I liked EAS AdvantEDGE Carb Control, which I bought at Walmart and Target. Others here swear by Premier Protein from costco.< /p>

I LOVE the chocolate Premier Protein shakes. I was just hoping to find a shake I could get down without holding my nose, I didn't think I'd find one that I actually enjoy, but I think the Premier Protein is actually really good! I look forward to my morning shakes. I wish I could find the strawberry but my store only has chocolate and vanilla.

I drink the Premier Protein shakes. I will even mix in some instant coffee to make it taste like a iced mocha. Premier only has 160 calories, 5 carbs and 30 grams of Protein. The point of the liquid diet is to shrink your liver. Fat and sugar are stored in your liver, so if you don't get rid of the fat and sugar from your diet, you won't shrink your liver. That will make your surgery unsafe, and could prevent the doctors from doing it at all.

thanks guys! i got the premier shakes! just a quick question how many a day is your nutrionist telling you to drink? what is your sample diet? the one mine gave me was

meal 1- 2 shakes

meal 2-16 oz non fat yogurt

meal 3- 2 shakes

meal 4- 16-20oz nonfat Tomato Soup

meal 5-16oz nonfat pudding

meal 6- skim milk blended with strawberries

is this about right?

You should go by whatever your nutritionist tells you, since every pre-op diet is different.

      Kind of nervous, as expected. One month out from surgery!

      😫 Hi, I’m new to bariatricpal! I am 8 days post op VSG. I am struggling very badly. I’ve been so emotional because I feel like I’m doing wrong. I’m afraid I’ll eat or drink to fast or eat the wrong thing. I’ve been on Pinterest and YouTube constantly for help. I have followed all of my surgeons and dieticians instructions. I just don’t know if my body is getting enough. Today, I am weak, sore, and just exhausted.

        It passes!! Everyone goes though it! It is a short term emotion! I'm almost five years post op! You made the right decision! Don't focus on the change right now. Try to entertain your mind. What your feeling only last about a week. It's related to your body adjusting and you mind adjusting. You got this!!

        I agree with Tara it's hard right now but it gets better do t forget your hormones will be all over the place you may even feel depressed. Be kind to yourself reach out and talk to people how you are feeling .
