I tried one as breakfast meal replacement and got super sick shortly after, any one else experience this??

I had the same thing happen in the weeks after surgery. I tolerate them just fine now, when I'm in a pinch and can't get to a meal.

I had no problem with Quest bars. They are good when you are on the go and cannot take your blender with you to mix up a Protein shake. They also have a lot of Fiber with helps with Constipation issues. Protein Bars become an option for a Protein supplement a few months after surgery. They cannot be used right away.

I'm 10 months out from surgery, so I figured it would be fine, I ate about half and felt super full and uncomfy, then got really sick :s Maybe they just aren't for me? Thanks for the input guys :)

I'm a little over 2 months and I love the Peanut Butter and jelly one. I can not eat the whole thing in one sitting. I do about half at a time. I also drink the premiere strawberry and creme shake. Again only half a day. It's a great way for me to boost my Protein intake. I've never gotten sick from either.

Quest Bars were my go-to bar prior to surgery. I still have a few boxes left, but am scared to try them since I'm only a little over 2 months out. Might try a few bites this week now that I think about it.

I love the Quest bars, and have never had a problem with them. I am 3 1/2 months out, and started eating them about a month ago. There are so many great flavors. I also recently learned a new trick from "The World According to Eggface" blog - you can cut these bars into 8 pieces, and bake them for a cookie-like treat! Check it out!! Good luck to finding a bar that works for you.

@@Jltambur I make the Cookies from 2 different bars at a time so I have variety. I cut them into 4 pieces instead of 8 and sprinkle them with a lil Splenda when they come out of the oven. They taste so much better this way. I usually eat 2 (half a bar) at a time as a snack while watching TV or I'll take them with me when I'm out and about shopping, etc. I like making Jello sugar free/fat free pudding with 16 oz. of Premier Protein. A half cup serving and 1 cookie make a wonderful 16g Protein snack as well :D It's all about making Protein #1 now!!!

@@Livincrimson it may be the sugar alcohol that makes you feel sick. They don't always sit well with everyone.

I've tried the Quest bars once-a Cookies and cream, and it was so disgusting I wanted to puke and I am pre-op! I have a very sensitive palate, but wow those are b-a-d! My kids won't even eat them and they eat everything! I'm really enjoying the Pure Protein Bars. There's anywhere from 20-23 grams of Protein per bar and relatively low sugar although the sugar alcohol in the one I had today was 8g! They taste good though. I usually have one for breakfast each morning.

      I have been waiting over a month to get into the nutritionist. I have an appointment, but I would love any advice on what to do diet-wise to lose weight before surgery. Like most of you, I have also struggled with my weight and have successfully yo-yo dieted myself into the above 300lb range. I feel like eating in a calorie deficit at my weight, it should come off, but it hasn't been and I have been tracking my food too.  Thank you

        Hi, Mindy G, I am new here too, my surgery will not be until July or August, but I could use a friend. I see yours is coming up soon. Are you doing the liquid diet before surgery? How's it going?

        I would take any advice on what to do for weight loss before the surgery, I have my first nutritionist appointment on Feb 9th (the soonest I could get in). But I was 12 lbs heavier than what my doctor submitted as my weight to my insurance, so I have to lose that plus at least 10 more pounds and I am struggling.

      WOW by the Grace of God 17 years ago I went to Mexico and had a lap band put on for weight loss and my waist was 64 inches and That’s more than 5 foot around and 18 stone  my weight was 375 pounds. Today I went shopping for not sweats and I succeeded. I found pants and a shirt at an awesome price at Burlington by the way. But the real story here is, today. My waist is 45 inches and my weight is 260. Both incredible numbers but think about this. My waist is almost 20 inches smaller around Wow that’s a brain wrecker.  Still, I love my band  I even celebrate it’s birthday 10-26-06 FYI-it’s kind of like choking yourself, and never letting go. And trying to eat. lol Life is good
