For me warm Water with bullion cubes went down well. I couldn't tolerate sweet very well after all the shakes. I added unflavored Protein as well.

Thanks for these great ideas and tips! Your advice can definitely help out other WLS patients who are struggling to get in their Fluid intake or who just need a change!

Thanks for pointing out the value of trying fluids at different temperatures – sometimes room temperature drinks are easiest to get down, while ice Water can work for some patients, and Hot Drinks and broth present a welcome change!

With all of these ideas, I think there is a great take-home message: keep trying, because there has to be something you can tolerate well enough to hit your Fluid recommendations! Keep them coming!

I also LOVE my coffee. Favorite is a venti hot dark roast from Starbucks....5 Splenda and cream.

Your NUT allows caffeine? I've been off the stuff since March.

My NUT doesn't allow much in life but a breath of fresh air.

My surgeon was cool with my coffee.< /p>

Water, coffee, tea, Water, tea, water, oh and more water...

occasionally I slip up and steal a like 1/12th of a cup from work of pepsi... mostly for the flavor since I swirl it around until no carbonation. In no way am I encouraging this btw... just admitting it.

but mostly... water... tea... and coffee, oh and more water... which reminds me I need to get someone to change the water jug thingy to put on a new one.

      Yesterday I "officially" eclipsed the 100 lb mark.  I'm sure if you're in any other country than the US, the 45.3 kg mark doesn't sound as much of a milestone, but it's very cathartic for me to post that I hit it. 
      I recently read back through both my BP status updates and my private journal and hitting this milestone makes all the things I "worried" about seem stupid, but I know they're not stupid because they were very real at the time.  Also, I think if I didn't give these fears my full attention, I may not have been as successful as I have been to date.
      I'm about 50 more pounds off my end goal and I know that will not be the end, I will continue to strive for bettering myself in both physical and emotional ways.  I have to hunker down and get this done. 
      I'm noticing if I don't exercise every day, the weight loss stalls quite a bit.  I'm not really into the 80/20 theory with diet and exercise, I think there's a genetic modifier that needs to be applied and it's different for everyone, just my opinion... don't hold it against me.

      RE: the running/training
      Honestly it started with me just doing laps around the kitchen that first post-op week.
      In a week, I graduated to walking up and down my street, then to walking around the block every day.
      The distance increased, then the speed.
      Then I started running little spurts during my walks, then to alternating 1km runs with 1km walks.
      And now I can do a continuous 10k (which I totally did for the first time this morning...so full of myself about it today, it’s disgusting.)
      Just do something everyday and slowly increase speed and duration, next thing you know you’ll be one of those odd “running people” (who I never understood pre-op, but now totally get, lol)
