Fairlife Milk for Protein?



Recommended Posts

I was told by my doctor today that I could use soy, skim and almond milk for Protein if the the Protein Powder was a lot. Has anyone tried Fairlife? It has 13g protein per cup.

I use Fairlife Skim all the time. in fact, I make my shakes in the morning with it - usually 1/2c pineapple, a handful of fresh spinach, a cup of Fairlife Skim, a scoop of Protein powder (vanilla) and a handful of ice. Throw it in the Ninja and I've got a Breakfast that's under 200 calories and about 35g protein. Holds me til lunch and I'm almost 2 years out.

I switched to drinking Fairlife skim milk after my dietitian recommended it. I love milk and think it tastes just like regular milk, plus it's almost double the amount of Protein and fewer carbs. I hope you love it, gully90!

I love FairLife. Use it exclusively. I even use it as a “snack” and add Sugar Free Chocolate Syrup.

A lot of testimonials here, maybe Fairlife is as good as the reviews.

Its the only milk that I use now. It tastes good, has extra Protein and no Lactose in case your intolerant. The skim/nonfat version has about the creaminess of 2 percent milk so it mixes pretty well with coffee.

I used it even before surgery. I love that it's lactose free. Less sugar and more Protein.

I drink 1 cup fairlife skim mixed with 1 cup fairlife chocolate every morning for breakfast during my commute to work. Have for about 6 months. :)

      12/12I 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 well five days ago 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 12/15 hmmm I guess this didn't post lol. Well I have more to update when I went to do my weekly weigh in with a scale I know is accurate this Friday I was 244 so even less then my new home scale (which still says 248😹) I am super stoked that all my good choices are paying off. I haven't eaten any bad junk food or high sugar drinks or excess carbs, It's nice to actually see results from a diet huh guys. Unfortunately I put too much mayo in my eggsalad purée and I'm nauseous 🤢But to happy to let it bring me down. Hope everyone is doing good and happy

      The sad dejected truth that you are not the same size in a plush padded vs. Lacy unlined bra. And should have known it. Sigh.

        Guess the new bra/panty set was a bust?

        I see what you did there!

        Also, boobs are dumb. I'm pretty sure I'll be tucking mine iento my socks in a few months!

        I see what you did lol

        They still kinda work but only by accident 😓, I couldn't find my exact size so I decided to play around with band/cup manipulation. But now I know padded bras may be adding a full cup size I don't own...

        I've been counting on that for years!

      I went to my 4th NUT appointment this week and I was absolutely surprised that I had actually lost 9 pounds from my last appointment.  I can get a bit obsessive when it comes to scale use so I've decided to only do pre-op weigh-ins at my monthly appointments.  It saves me a lot of anxiety, I think. 
      I actually was prepared to go to the appointment with excuses on why i gained, so this was a big win.  I didn't actually add much activity to my routine, the only thing I changed was having protein shakes every morning instead of just weekdays.  I really thought my extracuricular snacking activities were going to cause an issue, but I'm not going to let that make feel like it's ok to snack late or keep eating cheese non-stop.   Also probably helps that I had the stomach bug a couple days last week.  I think my organs liquified and came out....yuck...
