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!

        You are doing this for YOU not anyone else!! Do not worry about what others think, it is how you think and feel about yourself that counts.

      Met with my surgeon yesterday and he said that he is so excited for me and the progress that will be made! Waiting for insurance pre-auth and then will get everything scheduled! 
       
      So excited to start this journey and become a new person!!
