That's just awesome @Dashofpixiedust8 ! I especially like the scores above 10 hehehe!

Thanks for this very thorough rundown of your palate pleasers (and displeasers). I'm definitely saving this and adjusting to my own tastes.

I had an issue with chewing 4 big chalky Calcium tabs a day and went in search for solutions without it being a capsule either. I found this and I really enjoy it. Its the consistency of the drinkable yogurt. Tastes like a slightly tart blueberry yogurt shooter. Just 2 TBSP every morning

I also started taking liquid Calcium I found at Walmart. Tastes like orange cream. Not awful, but a little tart. Wellesse Calcium & Vitamin D3 Natural Citrus Flavor Liquid Dietary Supplement, 16 oz

And I set this up as Nasty- trying to figure out what to do with it now. I got the Creamer, and the Cafe Bella. I'm able to drink the Bella now, but I have to add 2 cups of full strength coffee, and half a cup of 2% milk in order to drink it. Way too sweet for me otherwise, and quite expensive.

Though I do like the grilled cheese flavor crunchies. Sriracha is spicy and honey mustard bbq is kinda sweetIMG_20170921_091246442.thumb.jpg.f9fb718243fa695517ba0128f0f554c0.jpg

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.

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:

Those look good, I'll have to try them. I've had some of the Weight Watchers Ice Cream Bars, they are about the size of a fun size candy bar and taste about like a snickers to me. 100 cals each, just got to keep to one at a time.

Atkins products are my favorite by far. Now only are they low carb but they taste great. I drink their shakes daily and have their bars on hand for if I'm on the go. Also I like their Snacks.

I find it amazing that people still look at chemical-based products for nutrition. I have done nothing but eat products that are natural. I have a saying "if God did not make it I will not eat it". That seems to work for me I have already lost almost 75Lbs in two and a half months. I lost 40lbs before my surgery and the only thing I changed was what I ate. You can get just as much Protein from real food than from any powder. I only eat quality foods and at the portion sizes that I now eat because of the VGS I can afford to eat like I am in a Michelin Star restaurant.

I agree with the Atkins products, they are amazing. The dinners are delicious as well!

      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.

      slow and steady wins the race.  don't get discouraged and just keep at it. Let your sleeve do its job and try not to stress yourself out.
      hope you are all having a great summer and enjoying what your sleeve has given you.

        Great reminder about how fast you can lose weight. The mind games we play with ourselves are the worst.
