I am currently 2 weeks post op and in the puréed stage. My coworkers want to take a break and walk to smoothie King this afternoon. Has anyone tried their smoothies before? I’m wondering if it is safe and won’t cause dumping. Any advice or suggestions?

I’m 2 weeks and 1 day post op. I am on full liquids for 3 weeks (ends on 4/16/18[emoji4]. I had Smoothie King 3 days ago, and I didn’t have any issues. I got the green tea matcha smoothie w/banana & sweetener alternative ( not sugar). A 20 oz drink was around 182 calories. They have some options (not a lot) where you can have the skinny option. I want to add that I did not drink my drink w/a straw, but with a spoon...& I took my time. Review the options on the skinny menu ( I reviewed online)before you try it. Good luck!

I have a smoothie from Smoothie King every morning! They have 3 different Protein smoothies that are OK to have. They are the Vanilla, chocolate, and strawberry Gladiators. They have 45 grams of protein, with less than 5 carbs. I will add low carb/calorie fruits and veggies to mine as well.

How long does it take you to drink a 20-ounce smoothie from there? I've only been to a Smoothie King once (right after my last pre-op appointment), but I'd be worried it would get all melted and gross before I could drink it all.

I drink it over an hour and a half. I am the same way about it if it were to get melted and it never does. There is just something about a smoothie from there versus one I can make at home. It stays nice and cold, and thick. No Water rising to the top, no nasty Protein taste.

I'll have to try it again next time I go to Springfield.

There’s one around but I’ve never been. I checked out the menu and some stuff looks good but I’m afraid of the sugar. I’ll probably try them further out.

I only get the gladiators and for a small, it’s like 3 grams of sugar. 45 grams of Protein. I have one every morning. Usually get the strawberry with spinach. Even when i get the chocolate and add 1 serving of banana (which is equivalent to an ice cream scoop) the sugar added is natural sugar form the fruit, not added processed sugar. I’ve never dumped or felt bad after drinking it. And the Protein Powder is the best. No weird after taste.

      I met with my surgeon on Friday.. I've completed all my tests and all my nutrition meetings as well as meeting the weight loss requirements for my insurance. We are officially submitting to insurance for approval and I was given a surgery date of January 16th 2020 (13 days before my birthday!) Fingers crossed all goes through

      Ok, now im getting old...my body gets me up at my normal 5am dog walk even when it's the weekend, vacation, and most importantly when I'm sick. So now that I have more energy, my body wants to make sure I suffer even longer during the day when I have a cold! Damn being healthy again! (:D)

      At my Primary Physician appt, the Doc said you know you lost a whole person. When you started seeing me you were 265lbs now you're 148lbs.
      She's right... I lost the fun me 😂 Joking Joking Joking. It's amazing who keeps track when you don't like insurance and browsers feeds
