Question about shakes



Recommended Posts

Do Protein Shakes count towards both liquid and Protein goals? I cannot remember.

Hmmm. That is a good question. I believe they only apply towards Protein. I could be wrong though. I only apply them to Protein as they make me feel dehydrated at times.

It does feel like the Protein is drying me out too.

Yeah, I would feel really thirsty after drinking one. I think its due to the Protein. I just wait 30 minutes and then drink Water.

Protein Drinks counts toward liquid. But like many, my RD wanted an additional 36oz just from clear liquids--not counting the Protein drinks. But no issues for me, cuz I was doing 64oz per day by day 2 out of the hospital. And, I love Water, so no issues there...

I was told the Water or skim milk you use in your shake counts but the other ingredients don’t. So I’m you make a 12 oz shake that has yogurt and Protein Powder and 8 oz of Fluid, you would count just the 8 oz. Broths count as liquids as do sugar free popsicles.

LOL, at the point where Matty is, I was only doing Premier Protein, so it was a 1 and done. I've not graduated to "complex" shakes yet--but hope to get the green light for frozen spinach and fruit smoothies again! Can't wait to make Dr. Weiner's set point smoothie!

      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".
