So in IMG_6833.JPGeffort to reach my daily Protein goal (80 grams) without having to drink a shake everyday I have been looking for alternative protein sources.

Today I tried a bag of Quest chips in cheddar/sour cream. 21 grams of Protein~130 calories~4 grams of carbs.

I thought they were pretty good. The flavor wasn’t bad and they kinda taste like baked chips that are off brand. 🤪 I would eat them again and they helped with my desire to crunch. I was able to eat the whole bag in 1 sitting so I’m pretty sure they are sliders so I’ll have to watch it. I thought it would make a great on the go snack and the bump in protein (listed as milk isolate and whey) it what I need to meet my goals.

Anyone tried these? Is there any reason they would not make a good replacement for a Protein Drink besides maybe missing some Vitamins and minerals? The chips actually have less calories than my Protein Shakes.

I've got a bag I bought a couple weeks ago and haven't tried yet. Will try to remember to try them tonight!

I love them, but for me they are def. a slippery slope. I'm a chip hound. I love the BBQ the best, but the sour cream and onion, and cheddar sour cream are good too. I haven't had them post surgery. Too askeered. I used to eat a 1/2 bag with a low carb wrap pre-op. Never kept me from losing. But I would absolutley go for them preferentially over real food for Snacks.

      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
