Meal Replacement Protein Powder



Recommended Posts

My doctor is requiring every patient to purchase Bariatric Advantage Meal Replacement powder. From what I've read it has why Protein in it. My team knows I am vegan. I'm going to call my dietician, she's just not very informative on a vegan diet. I have read about many protien powders that are vegan but i don't think they are the same as a meal replacement powder. I also have stomach issues when I eat dairy. I'm not sure if the whey protein would affect me the same way. Does anyone know of specifically a meal replacement powder?

VegaOne nutritional shake supplement! It's delicious. 20g a scoop. I don't care for whey (health wise) but I will be using it temporarily since I've got Protein premier covered by my insurance. After I'm cleared food wise, definitely back to VegaOne products.

I have used the vega one chocolate. I thought it was too chalky. I use soy milk since it has more Protein. I am going to use it for flavor with other ingredients in my smoothies. I will try to find the others at whole foods or online in some single palettes first. The texture may just be something I need to get used to. Thank you all so much for the help.

Jay Robb is whey Protein so it's not vegan but the sun warrior protein looks great. They have a ton of recipes too! Thx

FYI - Muscle Milk is not vegan [emoji19], but they do have a new line of plant-based/vegan shakes called Evolve. I found them at Target. They are just about as good as any other I've tried.

And as far as meal replacement powders, there are several vegan options, though you may likely need to head to a health food store or order from Amazon. Vega & Garden of Life come to mind.

Here are some others:

I use 1 scoop of Garden of Life, 1 scoop of Orgain, & 1 pouch of Fresh Start smoothie Blend from costco. Mix with a little over 2 cups of Water & it makes 2 16oz. smoothies. Over 30grams of Protein less than 15grams of carbs & about 200 calories.

Fred Meyer/Kroger, Walmart, Target, & other grocery stores have most of these. Fred Meyer/Kroger have a huge variety of vegan powders.

      What's your experience w/the Dumping Syndrome?
      How long did it last?
      How did you cope w/it?
      Has the dumping syndrome gotten worse each time more as the years go by?
       
      I had the Gastric Bypass in 7/2015. The last couple of times i got the Dumping Syndrome twice last year, and once this year have been the worst. My last one was on Easter Sunday. I felt Fatigue, nauseous, gagging, shortness of breath, laid down holding my tummy, wanting to cry, feeling desperate, it got to a point where i basically was unconscious. Is it normal to fall asleep without no warning and waking up out of nowhere to "wth happened, how long was i out for"? It's gotten scary, and don't know if this is part of the dumping syndrome. I've had more times but not as bad as the last couple of times. 😢

      When I get my surgery and lose weight I might write a book about my weight loss surgery so I can help anyone who started at my weight, or who think about getting the surgery.
