You know that time you paid good money for that one product that boast "delicious flavor" whilst offering high amounts of Protein and nutrition.....only to take one bite or sip and gag on the flavor, texture, or viscosity?

Let's face it-- a VAST majority of "bariatric protein drinks", high protein "keto foods", or "bariatric Vitamin supplements" taste like :70_poop:.

SOOOO..... in an effort to help each other save time and money, please post the products you have tried and what you would rate them.

Either a: :1312_thumbsup_tone3: or :70_poop:.

Adding pics of the products would be very helpful.

I'll start by posting a few products I've tried in the comments.

This product is called "Nectar" and claims to have a completely smooth and juice like viscosity. It's disgusting, it's cloudy, and the Protein particles will settle in the bottom of your cup.

Wasted $95 on this yucky crap.

Definitely :70_poop::70_poop::70_poop:

This product "Crisp" claims to be a salty and savory alternative to the typical sweet Protein products.

Imagine eating air puffed soy Beans with a chalky powder like substance caking on them. It literally made me gag.

Total :70_poop:

Sickening sweet, totally artificial tasting, and way too much funky marshmallow filling. Yuck.

While the LEMON variety of these calcium chews are amazing (taste like lemon Laffy Taffy)....THIS "coconut" flavor taste like greasy old coconut oil. Ewwww

Ok....let post a yummy one!

These chewable strawberry watermelon Vitamin chews are like eating a piece of sweet and tart candy. Super good and the nutrition absorbs quickly.

Definitely a :1312_thumbsup_tone3::1312_thumbsup_tone3:

I have purchased so many things over the last 6mo. That have been DISGUSTING but, I have FINALLY found a Protein Bar that makes me feel like I'm eating a Hershey or Snickers! It's actually GOOD!!!

( The chocolate brownie and choc chip cookie dough are GREAT)

(The chocolate birthday cake was NOT very good, too dry)

I have not tried any other flavors

Here's another good one! These sublingual Vitamin B12 tablets melt on your tongue in a matter of seconds and tastes like a cherry sweet tart.

Yum:1312_thumbsup_tone3:

If you like Peanut Butter, these are pretty good. It's the only peanut butter bar I found that taste like it could pass for real peanut butter lol.

Though, it is not very sweet. That could be good or bad depending on your preference.

I give it a :1312_thumbsup_tone3:

Ok, so these are a capsule, therefore not really any flavor. But I'm posting them on here because they are a very small capsule and really truly work! If you're having problems with Hair loss post-surgery I highly recommend these. As you can see it has caused my fingernails to be long enough I no longer need to wear acrylic nails!

Woo hoo :1312_thumbsup_tone3:

Here's another bad Protein bar. Extremely dry and crumbly and the flavor is funky.

On the flip side, the apple cinnamon variety of these bars taste very similar to apple cinnamon nutrigrain bars( not as sweet and more cinnamon)

So either :70_poop: or:1312_thumbsup_tone3:depending on the flavor.

      OMG! I dreamt of cake!!
      As of late, my dreams have been food obsessed. Last night I dreamed of gorging on good old American sheet cake with chocolate frosting. There was white frosting as well. Good thing we can't get that in Sweden! I just hope that I haven't become too engrossed in food. BUT they are only dreams after all.

        That's wonderful! I have trouble sitting still in the movies now. (I even fidgeted through the last John Wick, and it was awesome) I can't imagine sitting still this soon after surgery. More power to ya! Have fun!

        It will be interesting to watch as this theory develops. Thanks for posting!

      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.
