12 days post need ideas for low sugar drinks



Recommended Posts

I had my sleeve done 1/18/16 I'm doing pretty well so far. No nausea or vomiting yet. Started my puree diet Friday and would like some ideas for low sugar drinks. I'm so scared to upset my stomach or do anything wrong. I tried crystal light, but I really don't like it so I've only been drinking Water. Anyone find another drink that's they enjoyed?

I had my sleeve on 1/15. Diluted apple juice has been my saving grace. I do a 1:1 ratio for 8 oz, and that winds up being only 29 calories which isn't too bad.

Ocean Spray makes a line of "Diet" cranberry variations that I like a lot - Cran Pomegranate, Cran Mango, etc. They are zero sugar. At your stage I drank a lot of G2, Powerade Zero, hot tea with splenda and a splash of light cream, all kinds of broth, sugar free hot chocolate (made with 50/50 Water & unsweetened cashew milk), and V-8.

I couldn't tolerate plain Water or artificial sweeteners for 4 months, so I did Decaf herbal tea, broths, Bai5, diluted 100% fruit juice, milk, drinkable yogurt like Siggis or Kefir, diluted Vitamin water and Lifewater, pedialyte, coconut water, and added sweet-leaf flavor drops to my water. Not to mention all of the Protein Shakes, including Raw Fit, Raw Protein, Spirutein, and Syntrax Nectar Naturals.

There are a variety of Water enhancers. I don't know if you will have different reactions than you did with crystal light but you could try some other brands. I like Mio.

Try herbal or Decaf tea, either hot or iced.

I also like ProtiDiet liquid beverage concentrates: there are a variety of flavors.

You can try infusing your Water with something like mint and/or cucumber, etc.

V8 is also one of my favorites.

Thanks for all the ideas. I am a big Water drinker, but with minimal selections it would be nice to drink something different.

I use Propel lemon flavor. They have a bit of fizz to them so I open all of them, let them sit on the counter for a couple of hours so they go flat and put them in the fridge. They are great over ice but remember - no straws. Good Luck

      WOW by the Grace of God 17 years ago I went to Mexico and had a lap band put on for weight loss and my waist was 64 inches and That’s more than 5 foot around and 18 stone  my weight was 375 pounds. Today I went shopping for not sweats and I succeeded. I found pants and a shirt at an awesome price at Burlington by the way. But the real story here is, today. My waist is 45 inches and my weight is 260. Both incredible numbers but think about this. My waist is almost 20 inches smaller around Wow that’s a brain wrecker.  Still, I love my band  I even celebrate it’s birthday 10-26-06 FYI-it’s kind of like choking yourself, and never letting go. And trying to eat. lol Life is good

      Hi all! I’m Heidi, a Canadian ex-Pat living in Sydney, Australia. I’m doing this surgery because my mom died 10 years ago from obesity, she lived her own 600lbs life.  So at 116kg, it’s time to make sure my daughters don’t lose their mom to obesity.

      Drinking my favorite Premier Protein Shake for breakfast, and planned a nice healthy lunch today. Protein first, Veg second, then fruit, and carbs last.  💪
