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.

        I haven't pooped in a weed and I'd love a 4 pound poo right now lol

      2. ms.sss

        Lol, yeah, I've been known to drop 3-ish lbs after a good (and long awaited) poop.

        .....or even after a moderate to severe dumping episode. yikes.

      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
