Protein with highest protein:carb ratio



Recommended Posts

I am 3 weeks out from sleeve surgery and struggling to get all of my Protein for the day so I'm hoping some of you on here can help.

There is so much information about Proteins on this site and the number of choices is overwhelming, so I thought I would just ask a very specific question.

What are the Protein powders or ready to drink products with the highest protein levels and higher protein to carb ratios? I am specifically looking for drinks that are less sweet or unflavored.

Premier Protein is the highest I've encountered at 30 grams per serving.

If you are looking for less sweet, try an unflavored Protein powder. I use Isopure, others like unjury or Syntrax. It's 100% whey isolates and nothing else. 110 calories, 26 gms of Protein per scoop. I add it to Soups, yogurts, sauces. I also used the Nocarb clear drinks. 160 calories in a 20 ounce bottle, 40gms of protein. I add mine to my Water so they aren't as sweet.

I noticed I was very content with Syntrax Nectar (good quality high Protein uber low carb) in the early months...but now that I am years post op, I need a drink with a bit more substance to satiate me. My favorite by far is the Premier Protein (premade) that I buy from costco. 160 cal/30 g. of protein, under 5 carbs.

No Protein Bars are really low carb and I believe should be used in moderation.

Am I understanding you want high Protein and low carb? If that's the case Isopure whey protein isolate (unflavored) has 110 cal, 26g protein and 0 carbs per serving. You would need to add flavorings in it if you wanted a shake. This is what I used back in my weight lifting days and definitely will be using it now. I'm not sure if the company gives samples.< /p>

All of the Protein products I use (Muscle Milk, Unjury, Syntrax, premier, quest) have 20-40g protein and less than 3G sugar. As for sweetness, I use twice as much Water or milk to mix them so they aren't so sweet. I dilute the RTD 1/2 and 1/2 with milk. Or, you can use unflavored whey protein and tailor the sweetness and flavor to your liking.

Another good way to cut the sweetness is to use ¼ - ½ cup of plain greek yogurt. I use the FAGE 0%. A ¼ cup is 33 calories, 2 carbs and 6 grms of Protein.< /p>

Honestly Protein is such a personal preference. I found that I simply could not tolerate the majority of the powders, they are gritty regardless of whether you mix them with a shaker ball or put them in a bullet.

Post surgery I simply could not take the whey Protein and grit taste at all. I would gag and vomit. My Bariatric team recommended Premier Protein ready made shakes. There is no grit, 160 calories, 1g sugar and 30g of protein in 1 11 oz. shake.

In the beginning I had to milk them down by half because they are a little heavier but they taste great, fill you up and keep you full for hours.

To this day they are really the only protein I buy. If I had to pick a powder I could live with I would choose syntax.

      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!
