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!

      OMG! I dreamt of cake!!
      As of late, my dreams have been food obsessed. Last night I dreamed of gorging on good old American sheet cake with chocolate frosting. There was white frosting as well. Good thing we can't get that in Sweden! I just hope that I haven't become too engrossed in food. BUT they are only dreams after all.

        It will be interesting to watch as this theory develops. Thanks for posting!

      Feel like it's time for a status update, I haven't been on here regularly in a while and I need to keep my mindset focused on my goals.
      I haven't weighed myself in ~ 3 weeks.  I think I'm becoming the opposite of "obsessive" about tracking my progress and it could cause me some issues.  The good thing is that there have still been quite a number of NSV's happening that is telling me that I'm still progressing without knowing what the scale says.
      First one is that a belt I bought about 5 weeks ago because all my other belts were too big is also on the last hole so I'll have to buy yet another belt again.  second, I bought new jeans about a month ago and I have a lot more slack in the waist than I did when I purchased them.  I also boarded a plane and had about 8 inches of slack in the belt.  Finally, I hit my goal last week of being able to ride go-carts with my kids.  The last time I tried about 4 years ago, I had to leave because I couldn't fit in the harness.  This was sweet victory and I showed those two how it was done on the race course!!  😈
