Hey everyone...this is my first post! I'm in my 4 month pre-op program for Insurance, and suegery will be sometime in the late fall! Would love to know your favorite types of 'clear' Protein Drinks? Docs say I should start experimenting and finding one I like now so it's easy to have ready post-op. I tried the Isopure Lemon Tea and Grape flavors today, and they were bitter and had to get watered down. Thanks in advance! :)

Premier Protein is really good.

Why are you only interested in clear Protein drinks? Are the non-clear variety of protein drinks all chalky and too hard for you to keep down? I'm pretty sensitive to taste and texture, myself. vanilla, for example, isn't consistent in taste. Some brands of vanilla are downright horrible. And strawberry ALWAYS has an aftertaste for me. And I'm not much for chocolate. Coconut goat whey was good BEFORE surgery but AFTER surgery ... nothing tastes good, let alone the same.

See

I would have enjoyed a clear Protein Drink flavored with peach. Do the clear drinks taste like flavored water or do they have a thick consistency... sort of like those drinks required for glucose tolerance tests during pregnancy (if you can relate to this example)?

Peach Jell-O is the only Jell-O I can tolerate.

Let us know what you try and eventually like.

I like Premier Protein Clear that I get from Sam's.

I can tolerate the milky types and other drinks just fine, but my doctor suggested I find a ‘clear’ one now so it’s easier after surgery when you can only have Clear Liquids for awhile.

I’ve tried the premier raspberry and it’s pretty good, but just a bit too ‘fake sweet’ if you know what I mean.

I also tried the Isopure brand of tea and grape flavors, but yuck. Both were so bitter and had a weird smell to them. I think it’s the whey isolate they use.

Loved the Premier Protein waters pre-surgery...hate them post surgery (too sweet). I've transitioned to the Protein20 drinks and find them more tolerable than others I've tried post-surgery.

I found that the clear Protein drinks II liked pre-op were no longer palatable to me post-op. This is not uncommon, that your taste buds change after bariatric surgery. Sometimes it is a temporary thing but sometimes not. My advice is to not stock up on too many protein products ahead of time; instead, wait until after WLS to taste test RTD (ready to drink) Protein Shakes and powders.

        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!!  😈

      I just looked through all my old pants after my pre-op pants started getting to big. Keep in mind that I wear men's pants (usually cargos) because I am so tall 5'10"/5'11" ish. I also find that men's baggies tend to fit me better.
      I started out at a 44 in waist pant and quickly found that I was back down to my 42's. So even when thise got to be too big, I had to start pulling old clothes out of storage. After finding my 38's, I thought that these would not yet fit, but when I tried them on, they fit perfectly. I also found some older pants that now fit better than I remembered. What a relief! It's not like I can pop down to the store like I could do in the US and the styles here in Sweden are all skinnt jeans which I cant stand. I also found some 36's, but I'm not mentally ready to try those on yet. The biggest challenge will be buying women's clothing again.

      slow and steady wins the race.  don't get discouraged and just keep at it. Let your sleeve do its job and try not to stress yourself out.
      hope you are all having a great summer and enjoying what your sleeve has given you.
      just got back from a wedding in OR. and man am i afraid to get on the scale

        Great reminder about how fast you can lose weight. The mind games we play with ourselves are the worst.
