Bariatric Fusion Meal Replacement Shakes - What flavor?



Recommended Posts

For my pre-op diet I am required to drink Bariatric fusion Meal Replacement shakes (I am not thrilled when they specify a kind but whatever). Anyway - what's your favorite flavor(s)? I have to drink 5 shakes a day (that's basically all I can have for 2 weeks) so I'll get a few different flavors to mix it up a bit. I was thinking Cappuccino as one.

Thanks in advance.

I don't know the product, but if they don't taste pretty, you can dress them up, a.k.a. disguise them, a bit with whatever complementary extracts, sugar free syrups, unsweetened cocoa powder, a smidge of instant coffee powder (I bought a tiny jar and still have most of it in the cabinet from 2009). Whatever else may come to mind. The Cappuccino may be a good bet.

With dim memory of the brand I used (Muscle Milk Light powder* -- the pre-mixed had a musty, used taste and odor), the chocolate was okay and the vanilla was second best. banana passed when I added something. I'm not suggesting you switch brands, just thinking that the "basic" flavors are safest. I'd avoid fruit flavors, expecting a hideous, artificial taste. I actually like the chocolate.< /p>

Remember, no matter what anyone responds, it's all a subjective crap shoot.

* I had perhaps three each day and a modest meal.

@@WLSResources/ClothingExch It appears Cinnamon Bun is a popular flavor - but that sounds sickeningly sweet to me. I think I'm going to stick with the good old chocolate, vanilla and Cappuccino. Thanks for the info! I have to do 5 shakes and 3 Snacks of broth, sf popsicles or Jello or watermelon. It's going to be a touch 2 weeks but as you said - I'll start to lose weight sooner. :-)

On Bariatric Fusions website you can buy an individual sample of all 9 flavors. I bought mine from them, and while the $3.00 a packet price is a little steep, I figured it was better than buying 2 lbs of a flavor I'll hate.

I haven't tried them yet, so I can't give input on that front. I'm working my way through my Syntrax nectar packets first, my Bariatric fusion packets are next.

For my pre-op diet I had to choose between Vanilla and chocolate. I bought both and got kind of creative with them. With the chocolate I added a sprinkle of unsweetened bakers cocoa powder. It makes it less super sweet. For both vanilla and chocolate I occasionally added a drop or two of real orange extract. I was thinking mint extract might have been good also but I never got around to trying it.

The one thing that really encouraged me to keep at it was that I lost over 10 lbs on the pre-op diet alone! Good luck!!

@@The New Kel I bought vanilla, chocolate and cappuccino. They're all pretty good (with skim milk). I added some PB2 to the chocolate and vanilla yesterday and that was a good change. I have dark chocolate and english toffee stevia drops to add too. I have lost a couple of pounds (on day 4) but gained from yesterday to today and wanted to throw the scale through the window. I reminded myself what I always tell others - weight fluctuates daily and not to pay attention.

@@SLH-A I bought the samples - they were good - I haven't tried the cinnamon bun one though - sounds too sweet for me. I have to do 4-5 shakes a day for 2 weeks so I bought 3 big tubs of it (each tub is supposed to last 4 1/2 days). I will probably buy more for post-op.

There's no after-taste or film like there is from other Protein shakes.

      Got my haircut today and its always amazing how much better i feel afterwards.
      i have always considered it an odd thing that i enjoy a haircut so much.
      The smell of the barbershop (no salons allowed) and the whole scissors and clippers feel and sound is so relaxing.
      I have had the same barber since 1987 and i am not sure how i will handle it if that guy ever dares to die on me. I am pretty sure that the magazines on the bottom of the stack are the same ones from my first visit.
      just started Ron Powers -Mark Twain Biography- enjoying it

      I have to say, even more than 2 years out, it is so much easier to be good when your busy and so easy to go wrong when your bored.  Crappy weather and the wife is sick so i feel trapped in this house and i have to really watch myself.  At least the holiday leftovers are gone.
      Going to get out this week even if for only a few hours, maybe go see  Ford vs Ferrari that looks real good.
      Ok, whining over, I hope everyone is doing well and had a good thanksgiving.

        I hear ya. I notice the only time I ever "feel like eating" when I'm not actually hungry is when I'm watching TV for too long.
