What are the best tasting Protein Shakes. I'm just getting started.

Try buying one of each different ones because ughh some are not so tasty also premier has 30g which is good some only have 20g or 15g.

Bariatric Advantage shakes are what my doctor requires. 3-4/ day on preop diet and no need to take Multivitamin. My favorite flavor is orange

I just had my first appointment and pre-op tests, and with such a huge lifestyle change coming in the next couple of months, I am already beginning to gather my materials for success. I understand that there is a fasting period of two weeks before surgery, and liquid diet for two weeks after surgery, plus the ongoing need for extra Protein.

A lot of the shakes carried in big chain stores concern me, as I am not only doing this to lose weight, but to gain radiant health, and a common sense element must be present in that. I realized that our bodies are nature, and the planet we live on naturally provides everything our bodis need to be strong and healthy. All my life I've been eating toxic highly-processed foods and GMOs. And it shows. So I am seeking non-GMO and organic alternatives that provide the high protein-low carb, low calorie shakes.< /p>

Here is what I ordered so far:

http://store.draxe.com/collections/supplements/products/healing-protein-chocolate

http://store.draxe.com/collections/supplements/products/probiotics

I am also already beginning to implement nutritional changes to my diet, so my body has as much nutritional support as possible before even going for surgery.

So grateful for this forum!

Hi I am new here. Just starting pre op diet. My surgeon suggests 2 shakes during day and one small meal at night. I have picked up the premier chocolate shakes but cannot stomach them. Actually gagged while drinking. I do not like anything vanilla flavored and very rarely strawberry either. So I have been looking up smoothies recipes and am wondering if blending those up with berries and other stuff such as PB2 and maybe adding unflavored Protein Powder in would be good enough? I think I can take those better than nasty premade shakes.

I use Atkins pre-made milk chocolate .... and I put a scoop of Jay Robb Protein powder in it ... I call it a Double-Shot !

Has to be cold though ...

There are SO MANY to choose from ... you will find "the one" :)

I like the Premier Protein, but sometimes the chocolate feels too strong to me. If you hate vanilla flavor, I suggest at least trying PP vanilla; you can add flavorings to it! I use "Mio" Water drops or similar things -- there are dozens of flavors. The orange flavor + vanilla makes a creamsicle flavor!

Right now I'm trying the Syntrax nectar flavors. I have liked the ones I've had so far, but they seem to make my tummy feel a little upset.

I wouldn't add berries for the pre-op diet. The intent of the pre-op diet is to shrink your liver so you have to avoid sugar and carbs.

I want to echo this. You start making smoothies with those things and you will defeat the purpose of the pre-op diet. I would suggest looking at the Syntrax nectar flavors: You can make "smoothies" out of them with ice and Water.

The thing about the approved shakes is that they have a really specific carb/protein count. Almost any smoothie you make will have more carbs. So, you need to stick to the diet as they've given it to you, unfortunately.
