I am currently using Unjury Protein Powder and it does taste good, but it's $26 a tub that will only last me 5-7 days. Has anyone found a good cheaper option for Protein? I have to do three shakes a day while I'm on full liquids but I think I will be able to cut back to 2 once I get to pureed foods.

I used Muscle Milk Light (Vanilla Creme) Protein Shake powder blended with Water and a half a banana. I would buy it over the internet on Amazon to minimize costs.

100% whey Protein isolate tends to be really expensive regardless of the manufacturer. I like Unjury, and I also like Syntrax Nectar products, which are also pricey. Protein blends are cheaper, but we were told to stick with 100% whey isolate the first few weeks or months because it's the most easily absorbed type of protein, and early on you're getting most of your protein from shakes. Later on you can switch to blends or dump the shakes altogether. So yes - they're expensive, but also, you're eating a lot less food, so it's kind of a wash. And you won't be drinking shakes forever, either...

      So my surgery anniversary date is on the 24th of this month, but I had my 1-year follow up early with my surgeon this morning (I have another 1-year followup at the hospital on Monday to get my bloodwork and labs done).
      Anyhoo...my surgeon was very pleased with my results (and so where the office staff apparently, because 3 of the front desk ladies came by my exam room to give me props/high fives/generally gawk at me).
      But get this: he asked if I would be willing to come in for a future photoshoot so that I could be on a poster! And I was all, ummmm....no thanks, LOL.

      Today was a really tough day and I turned to food (and a watered down glass of wine). The interesting part was that I felt REALLY full after eating half my go to cheat snack, tortilla chips with cheese. So the GBP is doing its job!

      The only way I can tell that I'm losing weight is from the scale and my clothes "getting bigger".
