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.

      Looks like I need people around to complete a 10K.  I tried to do one by myself this afternoon and I gave up at around the 7km mark.  Gonna try again on Friday, but I may have to look into joining a running club...

      My Surgeon asked me a question the other day and i didn't give it a lot of thought at the time.
      He asked "do you tell"
      we were talking about peoples reaction to seeing me since i lost such a large amount of me.
      I answered that i do tell if they ask but that it seems most everyone is afraid to mention it if they haven't seen me in a while or they decided they already know the answer so they don't need the truth from me (we all know those types)
      I have had exactly one family friend come right out and ask me how i lost so much weight this year and i told her i had Gastric Sleeve.
      I am sure family has passed it around to other family (you have that type family don't you? or is it just me)  
      So that left me wondering "do you tell" and i dont mean right at surgery time. more like a year or so down the road do you say how or do you just say cut out the sugar and carbs and WAALAA
      Its a real personal choice to open yourself up to that kind of criticism and we know all about how we took the "Easy" way and yada yada yada.
      hope everyone is having a great week

        If people ask, I am open about it

        I'm about 10 months post op, and my standard answer is I eat way less and exercise way more (oh, and I cut the carbs by a lot). The only people I told were Mr., the Kid, BFF and my Mom.
