Protein Shakes Add Ice! (Post op day 4)



Recommended Posts

Maybe its just me but adding ice to one of the shakes definitely makes it easier to handle! It feels like a treat almost. I make all 3 shakes for the day in morning and by time I get to third one its sludgy lol so i add splash of milk and ice and it is pretty tasty just felt like sharing :).

I actually have issues with cold foods now. I drink my Protein Shakes at room temp.

Immediately post-op anything cold felt like daggers to me. I never had an issue with the taste of Protein Shakes. The temp bothered me more than anything.

Wasn't Water the biggest killer post-op? Ugh! Man, that hurt. I could drink most things, but when I sipped water, it felt like knives were in my stomach. I like my Protein Shakes over ice now too, but there's no way I could do that immediately post-op.

Pre-Op: I threw a Premier Protein in the freezer for a bit until it became slushy. It was pretty much the best thing ever during the liver shrinking diet.

6 days Post-Op: I'm fairly nervous about it. I may wait until I get the okay for puree's.

Oh, I hope I can drink them cold after my surgery...I think they taste so much better with ice!

Dayum, shazaam! *running to throw a PP in the freezer and per my new knowledge of them, hoping they don't whack out my heart*

I was the same way. I had to drink all of my fluids either hot or room temp.

      So my surgery anniversary date is on the 24th of this month, but I had my 1-year follow up early with my surgeon this morning (I have another 1-year followup at the hospital on Monday to get my bloodwork and labs done).
      Anyhoo...my surgeon was very pleased with my results (and so where the office staff apparently, because 3 of the front desk ladies came by my exam room to give me props/high fives/generally gawk at me).
      But get this: he asked if I would be willing to come in for a future photoshoot so that I could be on a poster! And I was all, ummmm....no thanks, LOL.

        I guess I could, but the idea of being out there for all to see just skeeves me out! Nope, not for me ;)

      Today was a really tough day and I turned to food (and a watered down glass of wine). The interesting part was that I felt REALLY full after eating half my go to cheat snack, tortilla chips with cheese. So the GBP is doing its job!

      The only way I can tell that I'm losing weight is from the scale and my clothes "getting bigger".
