chicken broth Protein?!?!? Mmmmmm. Please tell me more. That sounds delicious.

My nutritionist recommended Bone Broth Soup. I bought Pacific Foods chicken Bone broth it has 9 grams of Protein and I am adding flavor free Isopure if I need more protein. My liquid diet of premiere protein, bone broth and Water starts tomorrow. My surgery is April 5th. I know this is getting real because my hospital called and asked for my copay.

I usually love broth, but the beef broth I bought and I believe it's Bone Broth is too salty. I can't tolerate it.

maybe Water it down a little. I found the chicken brith less strong.

I'm getting my husband to pick up a different brand. I'll use what I have leftover in cooking their food. Maybe they won't notice. Lol

I don't have a surgery date yet, but have been trying different liquid things.

I really like the chicken broth/soup from Unjury. It has 20 grams of Protein. Unjury also has pea protein that I like added to Soups. For some reason unflavored whey protein adds a strange aftertaste/texture to soups that is just disgusting to me.

Everyone has different opinions, those are just my few favorites. I would also like to hear other people's ideas.

No matter what, find a Vitamin routine that works for you and remember not to take Calcium and Iron at the same time. supplements for life are important; vitamin/mineral deficiencies can be serious. I am a nurse and have seen all sorts of bad stuff happen to bariatric patients that don't take thier Vitamins.

Don't let it be you!

What happens mixing Calcium and Iron?

Calcium can block the absorption of Iron.

Calcium blocks Iron absorption.

Vitamin C helps iron absorption.

Just make sure you take calcium supplements separate from your Multivitamin.

Opurity/Unjury has calcium supplements and Vitamins that are meant for bariatric patients. I realize this is the second time I am recommending Unjury, I don't work for them or anything. I just find it easier to place 1 online order for all my stuff instead of going to a bunch of stores.

I took care of a young man who didn't take his calcium after gastric bypass and his teeth started deteriorating. He was sweet, I felt bad for him.

If I'm not mistaking. I'm thinking its about an hour from Columbus. My husband and I moved from Columbus to here in 2015. We lived there for 8 years. You live in a small town that Columbus people call "Country". Lol. It's a small world. Very nice to meet you.

      Stalls are the WORST.  I know they happen, but I am still disappointed.  I've been the same weight for over 2 weeks.

        I know the feeling. I did some major online shopping with all the sales around black friday. In tops I wear anywhere between a S-L. In pants from 6-10. But I must own the world's most elastic panties, because -100+ lbs, I still wear the same undies! :lol:

      I went against my weekly weigh in and cheated today the scale says I'm 248 😂How? Maybe it's wrong lol I just purchased the scale and it's my first time using it. I'll weigh my daughter to see if it's accurate. I was 255 this time last week so I guess it's a real possibility. I'll let you know , I have been very picky about sugars and carbs even though I don't have a huge variety of foods to choose from. I'm super excited and hope everyone is doing great! Got to charge my iPad but I just had to share my happiness
