So had my 1 month check and NUT said I don't have to use Protein Powder anymore. Do I'm trying eggs, cheese, chicken, fish, lean steak for all 3 meals. I'm also drinking Protein milk which I actually like. Just joined a gym today focusing on swimming at the moment I'm 30 lbs down but I'm still jst over 23 stone ;(

I'm really going to struggle with afterwards, I hate those Protein shakes, I don't like any shakes full stop. I'm also allergic to egg and fish.

Greetings one and all.

Got sleeved on Oct 14th at Kings in Denmark Hill.

Things are a tad different to how they used to be :-)

As many have said, Protein shakes are pretty awful and given that my taste buds are on strike re sweet things it's proving to be a bit of a headache :-)

Hi good luck with Fluid diet I had my bypass 3 years ago and after a failed band. You will do great just follow your surgeons advice and you dietician. I lost 12 stone in all have 10 off currently recently diagnosis with thyroid problem. But don’t regret having the surgery

That's great news on your wait loss... I had to fight 18months for this surgery. As I had the band done privately surprising after when you pay so much m9ney the surgeon don't want to know or even admit when it goes wrong. I would never recommend band myself . I have not heard from dietician. So started the Fluid diet myself knowing that it will give me the best chance .

I'm a year post-op and eat real food. However, on the days when I am working, I have a Protein Shake for lunch (for convenience and because I don't have enough time to eat solid food during the lunch hour).

I use these Protein Shakes. The sachets are not cheap, but they are very palatable. The chocolate, mint chocolate, lemon meringue, cinnamon latte and gingerbread ones are particularly yummy.
