Isopure "mouth coating" fix?



Recommended Posts

I am a couple months out from surgery (not scheduled yet) but I am trying out different Protein Drinks to see what is out there and what is palatable, at least for now.

I've gotten some of the Isopure Zero Carbs (40g of protein!). The taste isn't too bad but i feel like they create a coating in my mouth. Any suggestions on how to lessen this feeling?

Thanks!

I love that stuff. Drank it right after I was cleared for liquids and I think that is why my energy level never dropped when I had restrictions on my eating. The residue always goes away when I take a swig of Water.

If you can handle the extra, can you dilute with Water? They are so sweet to me so I really need the dilution.

I'm really glad i tried it. It tastes good and has so much Protein.

Thanks for the suggestion. I may try that.

I made a mix with mine. 8oz of Isopure, 8oz of Powerade Zero - same color, and 8oz of Water. I drank 2 of those a day every day in the first few weeks.

I couldn't deal with the chalky feeling it left in my mouth.

I did what Kranky813 did - diluted it with a bit of Powerade zero. I just love the grape powerade. I do drink Isopure occasionally, but not as much as I used to.

Those drinks actually caused the "skin" of my mouth and throat to slough off. It was so funky. I drank them for three days then had to move on to something else.

      I met with my surgeon on Friday.. I've completed all my tests and all my nutrition meetings as well as meeting the weight loss requirements for my insurance. We are officially submitting to insurance for approval and I was given a surgery date of January 16th 2020 (13 days before my birthday!) Fingers crossed all goes through

      Ok, now im getting old...my body gets me up at my normal 5am dog walk even when it's the weekend, vacation, and most importantly when I'm sick. So now that I have more energy, my body wants to make sure I suffer even longer during the day when I have a cold! Damn being healthy again! (:D)

      At my Primary Physician appt, the Doc said you know you lost a whole person. When you started seeing me you were 265lbs now you're 148lbs.
      She's right... I lost the fun me 😂 Joking Joking Joking. It's amazing who keeps track when you don't like insurance and browsers feeds
