I never found any I thought tasted good. I buy GENEPRO on Amazon. Mix in Water, add a water flavoring and it's 30 grams of Protein and tastes good.

I prefer Premier Protein. 30g per shake, and tastes great. You can pick up an 18 pack at costco for $24.95, and they have it $5.00 off pretty much once every quarter. The Protein Powder is also great. I also like Syntrax Matrix Protein powders. The flavors are really tasty, and mix really well with almond milk or Water. They carry 23 grams of Protein per serving.

The Bariatric Pal shakes might be tasty, but there is no way that I would pay $15.00 for just 6 shakes...Especially, ones with just 15g of Protein.

The fruit Protein Drinks seem to be a good deal, but why are they so much cheaper?

That’s my biggest fear .. I’m a bad drinker and I want something good enough for me to drink. Plus I want variety .. cuz I know I’m gonna get tired of the same Protein Shakes. Gonna check the one you mention.
Thank you!

I was also checking premier, I don’t have a Costco membership, I do have bj’s a lil more expensive. I was also checking muscle milk , cheaper but less gram of protein , so I was aiming for premier.

How long have you been drinking it? Have you gotten tired of it?

I've never tried that kind. I use Bariatric Advantage. I buy the big bags for home and the packets for travel (flying). It's too thick for my liking so I mix it with Water according to instructions and then add about 4-6 ounces of original unsweetened almond milk or nonfat milk if I'm at hotels without access to almond milk and a ton of ice.

I also discovered it doesn't stir (dissolve) well with a spoon so I had to get a Blender Bottle to shake it really good for a couple minutes.

I've been drinking one a day (breakfast) since my lap band was removed in Feb. 2017 In preparation for the sleeve revision and to help keep me from gaining weight in the interim.

They taste pretty good. However, I'm pre-op so I hope my taste buds don't change after surgery because I've stocked up for a couple months.

GENEPRO has no flavor so what ever flavoring you add to the Water and powder is what it tastes like. It cost about $1 per serving of 8oz water and 1 scoop GenePro and it gives you 30 grams of Protein. I drink 1 glass every morning and helps me make sure I meet my protein goals.

Do some research on GENEPRO. It's quite controversial.

The Bariatric Advantage makes me feel full but I'm doubling the liquid in a serving because I can't drink it to thick.

I also got Protein Waters for times I don't want a shake. I sampled them but they are mainly because for the after surgery recovery liquid diet phase. They are kind of sweet but I poured them over a full glass of ice and it Waters them down and they are fine after that.

Everything could be totally different after surgery though. I have heard some say their taste buds change and the tolerance for what they can swallow.

Never knew premier had those. And that’s good to know. Soon I’ll start my liquid diet .. for two weeks, so I was looking for enough options to not fail, thanks for giving me new ones! [emoji1417] but also for my post op.

        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.

      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.
      just got back from a wedding in OR. and man am i afraid to get on the scale

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