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.

      Went to see the Star Wars movie yesterday. (Glad I waited as no one else was in the cinema for the midday session - yes!) Hadn’t been to the cinema for a few months and OMG I suffered the most terrible butt pain.  So uncomfortable. Started after 30 mins. Was in the premium cinema so grabbed a cushion to sit on but it didn’t help. Ended up sitting sideways in the chair, stretched out on an ottoman. Soooo super glad no one else was there. Sometimes I do miss my old butt fat cushioning... but not really.

      I have a surgery date, I have my next doctor appointment on Wed and then Thursday I start my 2 week liquid pre-op diet. I am very nervous right now. I know it's going to be a tough mind game.

      Week 5 Post Op Report

      What a journey! I am 5 weeks from surgery and a total of 24.4 pounds down!

      I feel amazing! I’ve incorporated a ton of walking and I’m using my Apple Watch to help me along! I have closed all three of my fitness rings for 11 days straight! Ok, so I am in LOVE with my Apple Watch. I've had it for almost a year and I am just now tapping into it's fitness power!

      I keep on top of my protein, vitamins and biotin!

      I struggle with water but I average about 50 ounces a day. I have only had one day where I had to “purge” because something did not agree with me. Tuna and my Tiny Tummy still do not agree so I’m going to leave it alone for a while!

      I walk on average a little more than 3 miles a day for my exercise but manage to get in at least 13,000-17,000 steps a day depending on how my schedule goes.

      I get up every hour and walk around for at least five minutes. Then if I’m watching a show I get up and walk in place during the commercials!

      I meet with my doc this week for a progress report.

      I have one more week before I graduate from soft foods to the final phase!

      I’ve got my cookbooks ready, my food scale ready and my measuring plates ready!

      I could NOT be more happy with my progress! I feel amazing and I’m grateful to have this tool!

      None Scale Victory: My rings on my finger are spinning!

        Sabrina, you are doing so well. I'm truly inspired and equally excited for you. The view you shared is breathtaking and relaxing, I'm in love with the ocean. Please keep sharing. Where did you find the trackers and how do I access them? My date is approaching the 31st, I'm in liquid diet mode. I see my surgeon on the 17th. Any advice?

      2. SabrinaGoddess

        You got this sis! You totally do.
        The ocean is so peaceful. Some days I get blessed with seeing whales, dolphins and seals. It is truly amazing.

        You can go to under our name at the top left section and click "TICKERS" you can create them there. Then when you lose weight you just go to "my surgery" and change your weight and they will adjust.

        On the liquids, do sugar free pop-cycles. They are more like a treat than a liquid and they count as 2 ounces each! Liquids not the funnest part of our journey but who cares....LOL. I do like the IsoPure clear liquid protein drinks, you can get them at GNC. The flavors are ok. I also LOVED Kettle and FIre Broth and Epic Broths so I drank them all the time, it's good for you. It's BONE BROTH. Kinda pricey but the good stuff usually is.

      3. Krimsonbutterflies

        Thank you for the encouragement/positivity!!! I'm going to conquer this liquid phase, moment by moment. I also appreciate the mini tutorial of how to get the ticker. I'm thinking of starting status updates after my pre-op visit with the surgeon on Friday. I really enjoy the personal perspective and experience being shared, without feeling like the thread is being dominated. I look forward to how each person is approaching the wls lifestyle. Thank you lady, good night. Happy Whale watching. I love seeing the dolphins at Hermosa Beach.
