Any good protein shakes ?



Recommended Posts

I'm sort of at the beginning of my pre op diet and I hate Protein Shakes it reminds me of something I used to drink when I was little callled milk of magnesia. It's so thick and nasty and they almost make me gag I've tried the Premier Protein shakes vanilla kind. Is there anything that is much less thicker ? And taste way better

Protein Shakes are definitely not known for their deliciousness. I sort of look at them as a necessary evil, lol. You can make your own at home using kefir (liquid yogurt), Protein Powder, almond milk and ice in a blender. I add peanut powder to make a Peanut Butter flavor shake, or sugar free syrups in different flavors. Or you can pour the ready to drink ones over a lot of ice which thins it as it melts. Having several different brands and flavors helped me as well. You quickly get tired of the same thing over and over, it helps to have a change.

There is a great chicken Soup flavored shake....I need to look at the samples at home.

I am also wondering if anyone could recommend a decent tasting shake. The weight loss clinic gave us 2 brands to choose from for the liver reduction diet. The first one is BioPro and the second one is Baratric fusion. I got a free sample of unflavored BioPro. It was pretty gross. I also ordered a sample pack of the Baratric Fusion. I find that adding stevia and blending it with almond milk and ice cubes makes it a bit better but not the best.

My dietician recommended Unjury (they have a chicken Soup flavor), and Premier Protein.

I bought the variety pack from Celebrate and liked all of them. I'm going to try my Unjury sample pack tomorrow. I've always liked Muscle Milk.

I bought a sample pack from JBN (Just Be Natural); ordered online (you can choose 3 flavors for $5.00). So far, I have tried the mixed berry, which was actually really good, but seemed too sweet even though sugar content is only 1 gram. The Protein content is 25 grams. I mixed the powder with non-fat milk. I also tried the French vanilla; it was just okay, but didn't really care for that flavor. Still have 4 more to try: chocolate truffle, chocolate mocha, orange cream, and malted milkshake.

I am getting sick of the super sweet shakes already (still pre-op). My nutritionist recommended a few brands. But Unjury was the one that offered a strawberry sorbet flavor (that reviews say isn't too sweet and it's not creamy) and chicken Soup. just ordered to try for myself. Some reviews mentioned mixing the strawberry sorbet with sugar free lemonade - sounds like that might be too sweet for me, but might try it. Great to have options!

I just tried the Unjury strawberry sorbet and it was really good. I'm not a fan of artificial strawberry flavors but I'd buy this one.

      Went to see the Star Wars movie yesterday. (Glad I waited as no one else was in the cinema for the midday session - yes!) Hadn’t been to the cinema for a few months and OMG I suffered the most terrible butt pain.  So uncomfortable. Started after 30 mins. Was in the premium cinema so grabbed a cushion to sit on but it didn’t help. Ended up sitting sideways in the chair, stretched out on an ottoman. Soooo super glad no one else was there. Sometimes I do miss my old butt fat cushioning... but not really.

      I have a surgery date, I have my next doctor appointment on Wed and then Thursday I start my 2 week liquid pre-op diet. I am very nervous right now. I know it's going to be a tough mind game.

      Week 5 Post Op Report

      What a journey! I am 5 weeks from surgery and a total of 24.4 pounds down!

      I feel amazing! I’ve incorporated a ton of walking and I’m using my Apple Watch to help me along! I have closed all three of my fitness rings for 11 days straight! Ok, so I am in LOVE with my Apple Watch. I've had it for almost a year and I am just now tapping into it's fitness power!

      I keep on top of my protein, vitamins and biotin!

      I struggle with water but I average about 50 ounces a day. I have only had one day where I had to “purge” because something did not agree with me. Tuna and my Tiny Tummy still do not agree so I’m going to leave it alone for a while!

      I walk on average a little more than 3 miles a day for my exercise but manage to get in at least 13,000-17,000 steps a day depending on how my schedule goes.

      I get up every hour and walk around for at least five minutes. Then if I’m watching a show I get up and walk in place during the commercials!

      I meet with my doc this week for a progress report.

      I have one more week before I graduate from soft foods to the final phase!

      I’ve got my cookbooks ready, my food scale ready and my measuring plates ready!

      I could NOT be more happy with my progress! I feel amazing and I’m grateful to have this tool!

      None Scale Victory: My rings on my finger are spinning!

        Sabrina, you are doing so well. I'm truly inspired and equally excited for you. The view you shared is breathtaking and relaxing, I'm in love with the ocean. Please keep sharing. Where did you find the trackers and how do I access them? My date is approaching the 31st, I'm in liquid diet mode. I see my surgeon on the 17th. Any advice?

      2. SabrinaGoddess

        You got this sis! You totally do.
        The ocean is so peaceful. Some days I get blessed with seeing whales, dolphins and seals. It is truly amazing.

        You can go to under our name at the top left section and click "TICKERS" you can create them there. Then when you lose weight you just go to "my surgery" and change your weight and they will adjust.

        On the liquids, do sugar free pop-cycles. They are more like a treat than a liquid and they count as 2 ounces each! Liquids not the funnest part of our journey but who cares....LOL. I do like the IsoPure clear liquid protein drinks, you can get them at GNC. The flavors are ok. I also LOVED Kettle and FIre Broth and Epic Broths so I drank them all the time, it's good for you. It's BONE BROTH. Kinda pricey but the good stuff usually is.

      3. Krimsonbutterflies

        Thank you for the encouragement/positivity!!! I'm going to conquer this liquid phase, moment by moment. I also appreciate the mini tutorial of how to get the ticker. I'm thinking of starting status updates after my pre-op visit with the surgeon on Friday. I really enjoy the personal perspective and experience being shared, without feeling like the thread is being dominated. I look forward to how each person is approaching the wls lifestyle. Thank you lady, good night. Happy Whale watching. I love seeing the dolphins at Hermosa Beach.
