I hate them, hate them, hate them. I don't like sweets, for one thing. (If they made a nacho-chip flavored Protein Shake, it might be different!) I hate the aftertaste, the grittiness, etc. etc. etc.

ARGH.

*sulking a little bit while trying to drink this @#$% Protein shake*

Well the Premier Protein ones (IMO) are sweet but no aftertaste or grittiness that I am aware of. I did thin them out with Decaf or hot Water which was a little better but I was so glad after 2 weeks that I could do pureed and mostly get rid of them (still use about 6 ounces vanilla in my morning coffee instead of creamer).

You are almost 2 weeks post op so hopefully you can see the light at the end of the tunnel...lol

Thanks! I'm actually 3+ weeks, but I can't get all my Protein in without at least one per day. I'll try Premier.

I'm having unflavored clear Protein Water with fruit tea. So much more palatable! And some collagen hydrolysate in my morning Decaf

I like some of the Protein Soups here on Bariateic Pal. They are a good savory alternative.

i have stocked up on those...they come in different flavors too...starting pre op sunday and not much for sweets either, but these and the other flavors are good, plus can't beat 42 g of Protein per shot :)

Also svelte makes a soybased one, you give up a little Protein rating but it isn't that yucky sweet and I don't taste a pronounced soy taste.

Get the unflavoured Protein Powder and put it in your regular drinks and Soups, you can put it in anything you eat, yogurt, tea, whatever. Has NO taste but the Protein is there. Have you tried that?

      Going in on Tuesday. Things are arranged (need to order a cab to the station because it's too early for a bus going there) and I'm getting more nervous by the hour.

      I feel like I've finally gotten past the biggest hurdle. Surgery date is September 6th, the day after Labor Day, and yesterday I got my insurance approval letter. I've followed everything they've told me to do, and I've even lost 30 lbs on my own since hubby had to change his diet for diabetes. No worries now about having to do 4 weeks of the liver shrinking diet instead of 2. On my initial visit, if I had gained just 5lbs I would have had to do 4 weeks. It's getting closer. Just 2 more months to wait.

        Although the prep work took energy, I found the biggest hurdle was post-operative. The first 48 hrs were extremely uncomfortable. I did an overnight and trying to down the liquids, Tylenol, and especially the barium was rough. Thankfully though, I got away with only having to have 1 belly injection after surgery. Needless are not my thing.
