Oddball here - dislike Premiere - Thoughts?



Recommended Posts

When I was cleared to have Protein shakes I bought a bunch of single serving Protein Powder samples. I tolerated most of them and continue to try different brands. My least favorite to date was the unjury chicken Soup flavored Protein powder.< /p>

I use the protein powder to make Protein Bars and currently have Wegman's brand chocolate. costco has Optimum Nutrition Gold Standard on sale now, and I will give that a try next.

If you don't like preimer then don't drink it lol. There's Bariatric Advantage, unjury, Protein milkshake bar, Isopure, Syntrax, even GNC lean 25 are ok. Just find one that you do like the taste of that's under 200 calories and less than 5g of sugar. It should have at least 20g of Protein. Because once you are post op it will be a struggle to get down more than two shakes. So the more protein in one, the better.

Also, try ready to drink varieties and see how you like it because your taste will change after surgery.

Thats where i currently find myself post surgery trying different shakes and not having a lot of luck. I have tried GNC unflavored not bad but i keep getting a severe aftertaste. Tried premier mix it is okay but not for everyday the already mixed were too chalky and thick. The one i really liked was GENEPRO but that one has alot of controversey behind it and i am not sure i want to bet my health on it. So ultimately it is Syntrax tried alot flavors and found some that are tolerable. Plus they have lots of flavors that i can interchange through the week. I actually liked the grapefruit and road side lemonade the best but there was nothing wrong with the other flavors either.

As for unflavored fixing to try the Unjury medical grade hmm we shall see.

I bought a lot of Premier and like the chocolate. To me the strawberry banana was too sweet. Haven't tried my caramel or pure banana. I can say they make you feel full. The colder the better. I have not been able to drink 3 a day. I wish the chocolate was more a dark chocolate so it would not be sweet. I love Bariatric Cream Soups (15 gram protein)for the savory taste at dinner and add 4 Oz of precooked boneless chicken to it. Makes a good dinner. I have coffee on the morning at sip on the shakes all day. Had a sf popsicle th tonight and may have half a shake before bed. Had to buy listening strips because the shakes do leave a bad taste in your mouth. I must say it's freeing not to of cook and not having to blend shakes.

I can handle Premier but only in a pinch, my favorite has been the Syntrax Matrix, some of the nectar naturals were good too like Peach but some were very artificial tasting to me. Now I make my own mostly

      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!
