Are you looking for the BariatricPal Store? Go now!

Recommended Posts

I don't know about free samples, but the BariatricPal Store sells a sampler variety bag so you can try all of the flavors. I also found a variety pack on mybariatricpantry.com.

So far they're the only Protein Drink I've been able to tolerate without gagging (and I've tried A LOT), but everyone is so different regarding what they do and do not like, so it's hard to say. The variety pack from My bariatric pantry was less expensive than here (Only $20 - although it only came with 10 packs), and I think I've seen a 7 pack sampler elsewhere online for under $15.

I think pretty much all 100% whey Protein isolate powders are expensive. But if you're early out, whey protein isolate is probably your best choice as it's well-absorbed. Syntrax Nectar and Unjury products are my favorite - they don't have that "protein taste" that a lot of others do.

Nectars are the only Protein drink I have ever been able to stomach, and I am almost 2 years post op. I bought mine online at nashuanutrition.com because I could get 1 packet of the flavors to try. I like most of them, but there are a couple I didn't care for. I know they are expensive (most are) but since it was the only one I could get down it was well worth it to me!

The company that makes it actually is offering a sampler special on their homepage at https://www.si03.com/

I just called in and ordered. It was $16.99 w/shipping and the nice thing is, you get a packet of each flavor to try. I think that's a fair price. That's the cheapest I've seen for the sampler pack.

I've read a ton of reviews and other WLS patients say that this Syntrax brand is one of the best on the market for quality Protein and it tastes good and is easy to mix. I'm going to give it a try!

Are they worth the cost? Seems very expensive




Honestly, I bought the sampler tried one and the rest is still sitting in the pantry for October :/

I love them - they've been my go-to Protein Powder since I started with my pre-op diet. They mix really well (no clumping) and have natural flavours. That said, since surgery, there are a couple of flavours that don't taste quite the same for me (but not all of them).

Get the Sampler Pack (Variety Pack?) and try it out. Go to the webpage (si03.com) and hover your mouse over the upper right quadrant where is says "Special Offer" or something like that. For $16.99 you'll get 15 samples, all different flavors, so you can try them out before making a major purchase. Syntrax Nectars are the only powders I drink. Some I mix with Water (juicy ones, tea) and some with unsweetened almond milk (regular or vanilla) as I can't tolerate skim milk. I mix them in a shaker bottle I bought at Walmart for about $10; it has a coiled wire ball inside and it mixes the Protein powder very well/easily! Luckyvitamin.com is the cheapest source I've found for the 2.2 bottles of Syntrax Nectars.

      I hate these Lovenox shots.  That is all! LOL
      Feeling like a pin cushion.
      I know they are needed and it's only 10 days worth but I really hate giving myself shots. It's one of the reasons I want to be healthy because diabetes runs in my family

      Yas, I am HOME! Traveling back home was interesting but I made it.
      For the first time in my flying life we had NO drink service due to the turbulence! It was crazy. I had to call the steward to bring me water. You CAN NOT let yourself get behind on drinking! That would be dangerous.

        yeahhhhhh we are only 3 months apart on the sleeve journey. I found it has been way easier to lose with the sleeve than it was with the band...... although i loved my band. Sleeve was the easiest SX i ever had too.....

        @bayougirlmrss I was told this is the fastest weight loss surgery, but I am not really looking for extremely fast. I want it to be healthy. This is our new tool and we can use it wisely for sure. Are you taking your biotin and vitamins?

      TOMORROW IS MY DAY! (note this did not post properly so I am still  posting it after the fact)
      I am so very excited! My sister is here with me and my son. I am so excited. My anesthesiologist called me tonight to discuss our plans for tomorrow. I am not feeling nervous at all. Just excited for the future!
      I did buy a few bottles of CFpreop which is really suppose to help you stay hydrated. It's pricey but I feel it's worth it. I tried the Watermelon tonight. I have to stop all liquids after midnight and I go into the hospital at 5:30am for check in. My surgery is at 8am.
      SO HAPPY for this journey!
      You can get the CFpreop on Amazon if anyone is interested. It comes in Watermelon and White Grape.

      Today I said I’m an XS or size 8 (Aust) at a clothing store. I never thought I’d say those words and say them with confidence. And when I commented a dress was too big on me I was told it was the smallest size. As was the belt I wanted. 
       
      I tried on a slim fitting singlet dress yesterday & was shocked to realise the lumpy bits on the dress were my hip bones. I have an hour glass shape so I always had hips but never ones that stuck out on the front of my body! 

      I’ve been a size 10 before - for about 5 minutes. While I am now confident about saying I’m an 8, clothes shopping is all still a bit freaky for me. It’s not that I’m focussed on the size on the label. I’m well aware the cut/line of the clothes and the designer’s style will dictate what size I need or if it will suit my body shape. The size is the starting point & it’s starting at an 8/XS/38 which is a big mind set change. It’s thinking a pair of pants will be too small & discovering they are almost too big. 

      While I’m still coming to terms with my actual new body shape and size, I’m very happy to be in this new reality.

        ...ah! I see you are from Brisbane! We lived there for a year when Mr. got a work contract there.

        I have fond (and not-so-fond, lol) memories of the weather there this time of year. It it crazy hot yet?

        Hit 42degress last weekend but this week has been in the rather pleasant low 30s (relatively of course😜). Could still wear jeans but thank goodness for air conditioning. Worse is the drought. Everything is dying or dead. Very sad & depressing.

      4. ms.sss

        I feel ya.
