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 joined BariatricPal in 2008 & I FINALLY made the descision to have WLS!! I'm so excited & not sure what I need to do to get the ball rolling, but I made an appointment with my PCP for 7/19. It's a start I guess.

        I've been dreaming about it for 30 years or so. It's time to make it happen!

      I joined yesterday when I was struggling with this preop diet... 
      It typically comes and goes, the hard times and easier times. I'm on day 6 of 14  shakes, water, sf Popsicles and jello. And I might actually be losing my mind. But, oh dear lord has the fear set in. Not about the surgery itself, but life afterwards. If I feel this crappy on the preop diet, am I going to feel like this forever after? 
      I know most of the answers are no, not forever. It might be worse after for a while, then get better. I know it's a more of a mental challenge than physical after the first couple weeks of healing. I get all of that. But I'm starting to feel scared about losing myself afterwards. 
      It might be my hormones or desire to chew something salty talking.. It may go away soon or tomorrow.. I can hope, anyway. But right now.. The fear is real. 
       
      And this liquid diet can bite me.

        Fear is normal, but if it makes you feel any better, I'm 4.5 months post-op and the pre-op diet was by far the hardest part of the whole process. There will be challenges and a lot of new things to learn, but I can honestly say at this point I feel so much more "back to normal" and was even able to go on a week-long vacation with my kids without stressing over it. It's so worthwhile.

        @NickelChip This actually does make me feel better! Thank you so much! After the onslaught of Covid, we've all had to deal with a "new normal", so I know it's possible. It's just the fear and frustration in this moment that makes me question if I can find another "new normal" afterwards. The thought of just a few more months seems daunting some times, but I really do appreciate input and real experience. I'll use that to get me through for a few more hours! LOL. Thank you so much! And I'm glad everything is going so well for you! ❤️
