Can't drink Protein, HELP!



Recommended Posts

I use Syntrax Nectar, it mixes with Water. (I'm in pre-op/phase)...surgery shortly. Anyway, tried many others, and I was so grateful to find this. Like it so much better than the other ones. This is more like a juice/than shake. Hope I can still drink it okay after surgery!

I had to buy the Isopure "juice" red, blue, green, orange and purple. 40g Protein. I couldn't hold any other kind of thing down!!! Purple tastes like grape kool-aid!

Does this have the protein after taste? Are they overly sweet?

I am 6 days post-op and I am struggling BIG TIME. My doc wants me getting 60g of Protein every day and a total of 64oz of liquid every day. I've slowly been better with Water, Gatorade, but still no where near the 64oz. My main concern though is Protein. Any type of Protein Drink I can't keep down (i throw it up). I've tried different kinds of premade shakes, Isopure ready to drink, protein Water. One sip of any of those and I feel SO sick. The only thing I've found that I keep down that contains protein is a small amount of skim milk or kefir.
What can i do?!?!

I am having a difficult time tolerating protein as well. Before surgery (gastric bypass 7 days ago) I was easily drinking Premier Protein and Isopure. After surgery, I had trouble tolerating the protein Jello in the hospital and anything I mixed my Unjury powder with. I had a constant bad taste in my mouth, a coating on my teeth and tongue, and when I burped it left a rotten taste. I also experienced dumping. Turns out I can no longer tolerate the whey protein. Dr. told me to switch to soy protein. Now I am trying to figure out the best way to use the unflavored soy and not have to deal with the taste.

gummies generally aren't digested well. Look for chews or powders.

      Feel like it's time for a status update, I haven't been on here regularly in a while and I need to keep my mindset focused on my goals.
      I haven't weighed myself in ~ 3 weeks.  I think I'm becoming the opposite of "obsessive" about tracking my progress and it could cause me some issues.  The good thing is that there have still been quite a number of NSV's happening that is telling me that I'm still progressing without knowing what the scale says.
      First one is that a belt I bought about 5 weeks ago because all my other belts were too big is also on the last hole so I'll have to buy yet another belt again.  second, I bought new jeans about a month ago and I have a lot more slack in the waist than I did when I purchased them.  I also boarded a plane and had about 8 inches of slack in the belt.  Finally, I hit my goal last week of being able to ride go-carts with my kids.  The last time I tried about 4 years ago, I had to leave because I couldn't fit in the harness.  This was sweet victory and I showed those two how it was done on the race course!!  😈

      I just looked through all my old pants after my pre-op pants started getting to big. Keep in mind that I wear men's pants (usually cargos) because I am so tall 5'10"/5'11" ish. I also find that men's baggies tend to fit me better.
      I started out at a 44 in waist pant and quickly found that I was back down to my 42's. So even when thise got to be too big, I had to start pulling old clothes out of storage. After finding my 38's, I thought that these would not yet fit, but when I tried them on, they fit perfectly. I also found some older pants that now fit better than I remembered. What a relief! It's not like I can pop down to the store like I could do in the US and the styles here in Sweden are all skinnt jeans which I cant stand. I also found some 36's, but I'm not mentally ready to try those on yet. The biggest challenge will be buying women's clothing again.

      slow and steady wins the race.  don't get discouraged and just keep at it. Let your sleeve do its job and try not to stress yourself out.
      hope you are all having a great summer and enjoying what your sleeve has given you.
      just got back from a wedding in OR. and man am i afraid to get on the scale

        Great reminder about how fast you can lose weight. The mind games we play with ourselves are the worst.
