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.

      Got my haircut today and its always amazing how much better i feel afterwards.
      i have always considered it an odd thing that i enjoy a haircut so much.
      The smell of the barbershop (no salons allowed) and the whole scissors and clippers feel and sound is so relaxing.
      I have had the same barber since 1987 and i am not sure how i will handle it if that guy ever dares to die on me. I am pretty sure that the magazines on the bottom of the stack are the same ones from my first visit.
      just started Ron Powers -Mark Twain Biography- enjoying it

      I have to say, even more than 2 years out, it is so much easier to be good when your busy and so easy to go wrong when your bored.  Crappy weather and the wife is sick so i feel trapped in this house and i have to really watch myself.  At least the holiday leftovers are gone.
      Going to get out this week even if for only a few hours, maybe go see  Ford vs Ferrari that looks real good.
      Ok, whining over, I hope everyone is doing well and had a good thanksgiving.

        I hear ya. I notice the only time I ever "feel like eating" when I'm not actually hungry is when I'm watching TV for too long.
