OMG how in the hell do people drink this?!?



Recommended Posts

I bought a couple of samples of is Isopure zero carb ready to drink- 2 alpine punch and 2 grape frost. I thought I should just try one for fun so I cracked open the alpine punch after leaving it in the fridge overnight and OMG! I threw up!!!!! ???? I heard there was an aftertaste and I was like "yeah none of this shyte tastes good anyway" but nothing, NOTHING prepared me for this aftertaste! I thought it would be more realistic for post op if I sipped it out of a shot glass(I've played post op surgery awhile now to prepare me not to gulp). At first, when it hit my tongue I was like "eh, that's not to bad" and then swallowed and OMG it was like rotten milk mixed with burnt hair consumed my mouth!!!!! The first sip I gagged and gagged but I thought to myself "ok, it's just because it's new, take a few more and I bet it gets better"(mainly because I have a very sensitive palette and over taste everything) but nooooooo that second sip caused violent retching! I literally threw up everything to the point of dry heaving! It was soooo bad!!! My husband just stared at me like I was in the exorcist or something! That is some nasty stuff! Please someone tell me the Syntrax Nectars are better and I didn't waste all that money buying this stuff! ????

@@Sajijoma lol! Th only one I could handle was the apple melon! I thought I'd hate that one because of the melon but it was alright. I like some of the Syntrax ...well Peanut Butter cookie and strawberry mouse. People like the orange one and I bought a tub of it.....wasted! I didn't like it at all.

Isn't it awful?!

Honestly, I think only 2-3 people I've ever read about can stand that stuff.

I'm 14 months post-op, and I still have a shelf of that s**t.

@@Sajijoma - nothing but Isopure wimps here...geeez. I actually like it. But only the green tea. How ever I do use the coconut with chocolate Protein shake to get me over my mounds cravings.


@@VSGAnn2014 - what flavors? Let's see if we can get some shipping deals ;-)

@AKCPirate ... none of my Isopure is green tea. Nothing nearly that lovely. ;)

I have Isopure chocolate and I put just a teaspoon Sugar Free Chocolate pudding mix and it tastes great. I also put GNC 100% whey Protein no flavor in my crystal lite and it doesn't taste at all

Elizabeth Regina can tell you anything, but it necessarily will be subjective. Ludwig may think Syntrax is wunderbar, but Vladimir will cry "Nyet!" Finding a product that is palatable is a hit-or-miss affair. Everyone has wasted money in pursuit of a not-loathsome product. The good news is that you won't be consigned to any of them forever. Blow your nose and pull up your socks, woman. WLS isn't for weaklings.

I love the Isopure ready made drink. I think it is way better than Premier Protein. I really like the grape and lemonade flavors.

I did not like the Orange flavor at all! But I read somewhere that it is random to which flavor people will like and to still try a different one. I love the Apple Melon and the pineapple banana ones. I hope that will stay the same post op!

      Me: Hey Siri, Is it raining outside? (for my morning walks with the dogs)
      Siri: I don't think it's raining at the moment.
      Wet Dogs: Then why are we wet? This damn Siri person is more stupid than we are.

      I received my nutrition book and checklist today! I am so very excited (and a tad bit scared too) Each day this is becoming a reality!
      I created a new blog post about how BRAVE we all are for doing this. Because I think we are! Most of us know the horrors of people calling us nasty names, saying we can't control ourselves, we are easy targets for people's verbal attacks! But I feel we are BRAVE because we are taking control over our lives and creating a new world of happiness.

      Today I scheduled my mental evaluation and my nutritionist appointments. Yes, we are moving along quiet nice.  December 9th will be here before you know it.
      I have informed my inner circle of family about the surgery and I will be keeping it in my CORE!

      Well, it has been a while since I posted here, but my journey continues. As for breaking my stall, I was able to get down to 214 with the help of a friend via our Fitbit fitness trackers which has made me ecstatic! Since that has happened I was fortunate enough to have my insurance company approve a panniculectomy to remove the panniculus (THIS is the correct term, NOT pannus, see this reference: https://www.merriam-webster.com/medical/panniculus) that has been deviling me for years, even before I had bariatric surgery. It was to the point that it was hanging down far enough to cover my pubic area, covered half my thighs when I would sit, and also drooped between my legs which I could hardly manage to keep together when sitting. For any males that may read this, for a woman that is pretty uncivilized, not to mention, unladylike especially when wearing a dress or skirt - just looks slovenly to say the least. Despite the numerous skin issues I had the last couple of years, my health insurance insisted the procedure was cosmetic... 🤐 . I would guess no one that is saying so has been in the bariatric patient's shoes. The damn thing was just getting to be a self-esteem killer in addition to a medical nuisance requiring many visits to my primary care physician, and interfering with my mobility. Now, I realize there are folks with more egregious panniculus sag issues, but the fact that it interferes with mobility is an important consideration.
      One thing I have to say is that this surgery is drastically different from any other I've had. Things occur that are deemed routine, expected even, after a panniculectomy that would be downright unacceptable after any other procedure. This plastic surgery experience is definitely a learning experience that is still unfolding as I key this entry. For one thing, the swelling is a story all it's own, I had no clue my abdomen could get so large, so quickly, without causing my skin to just split open - it's crazy! So far, I'm pleased to have been able to get this procedure despite may be perceived as drawbacks, just to get the pendulous adipose tissue demon off of my person. Here are a few links to information about this procedure for anyone considering it in the future:

I will provide updates periodically on my progress of this surgical recovery. Have a wonderful day!
