If Optifast is the only choice then your clinic/surgeon is somehow profitting from this exclusionary choice. Are you required to buy directly from the clinic itself, if so there is your red flag? (Kickbacks from sales reps) I have read where this happens a lot in Canada.

No. I will have lots of choices and can buy from where I choose. My pre op diet only is Optifast because that is what my team has found works the best.

My group provides support and care for the rest of my life at no additional charge. They are far from scammers trying to milk what they can from everyone.

I haven’t had surgery yet but was wondering why premier isn’t on your list if they gave you a specific reason.

Premier is a mix and not a pure whey isolate. I am GUESSING this is the reason that my team prefer I not use it and use only pure whey isolate. We absorb things differently post op.

Like I mentioned, I am guessing at this. I will ask at my weekly class on Wednesday and post back. This comment was mentioned at a class on a totally different subject by another patient so I do not have any details as to why. I feel sure that the reason will be solid though.

My Dr and my team are top notch.

No problem at all. I will ask this Wednesday and report back with what they tell me. I too am curious as to the reason.

They actually give us samples of it pre op so it's not that it isn't good quality. Just not an option to use post op.

I tried the peaches and cream last night. I was expecting it to taste richer like the chocolate, vanilla, or even the banana and cream. I'm a little let down cuz it felt a little watery. But the peach flavor hits you in the face. I'm gonna try making Protein ice cream with it and will let you know!

I absolutely love the peaches and cream Premier Protein shake. I drink the chocolate too, but it's always been a little strong and too sweet for me. The peach flavor is just right. I love it. I tried the Cookies and cream flavor too. It's ok, just not as heavenly as the peach.

The Cookies and cream will be my next flavor to try. Does it really taste like cookies and cream?

BTW, everyone!!! Sam's Club is running a sale on Premier Protein from now until March 25 (I think)? It's $12.99 per case!!! Woot, that's dirt cheap for a meal replacement!!!!

Oh snap, thanks for the heads up on the Sam's sale! It's already a good deal at the $16.99 or whatever they are normally, but I'll be loading up at $12.99! I think the last ones I got had a Feb. 2019 expiration so I can store up. I might have to go this evening and avoid the Saturday morning crowd. :)

Does it taste like cookies and cream or more on the chocolate side

I picked up a box of the Cookies and Cream flavor, since my husband loves the chocolate flavor and I thought he might like the new one. He liked it, but we both said it was super sweet (way too sweet for me - I've never had a particularly needy sweet tooth or anything).

Looks like a lot of y'all like the peaches flavor, so I'm definitely going to try that next time!! For right now, I just alternate between vanilla and chocolate. The strawberry was too sweet for me, too...

Thanks for this! The peaches n cream is sweet too (to me, I don't have a sweet tooth either), but it's great mixed in Greek yogurt, mixed with Fairlife milk (high Protein milk) or with cashew or coconut milk. Cuz it cuts the sweetness!

So far I have tried the chocolate, strawberry and Banana (in that order). The Banana is my least favorite, I did not even care for the smell, as it kind of had a medicinal or chemical undertone. I would like to try the new Peaches and Cookie flavors, however I believe the lactose is going to affect me long term :44_frowning2: and that is a bummer!

I tried 'em both and was not too happy with either -- too sweet for me. I'll bring the rest of the boxes to my office and someone will take them off my hands!

The thing with Premium Protein that turns me off is the ingredients list. My sfh Pure Protein Powder has 4 ingredients: grass fed whey concentrate, natural vanilla flavor, sunflower lecithin, and stevia leaf extract. To which I add frozen fruit, PB2, Decaf coffee, spinach, etc.
