Protein Shots - 15g Protein, 60 Cal



Recommended Posts

I am not great with Protein, so of course, my doctor upped my minimum to 75g/day. UGH! I chronically get close to evening and still need 10-20 g more protein. So I ordered the protein shots from the BP store and tried my first one today - apple. Delish! It's tangy, not toooo sweet, kind of like a cross between an apple Jolly Rancher and pineapple sherbet. It's less than 3 oz., so even in the evening it's not hard to sneak in. I'm delighted. I'd like to get away from supplements, but for the time being, I take a lot of them. This is much better than having to drink a 16 oz. Protein Water right before bed.

I've seen those and was wondering how they are—thanks for the review! Post-op, my doc doesn't allow for Protein Shakes to count as Fluid intake, so these would be really helpful so that I can get in all my fluids and Protein.

Wow, that's the first time I've heard of that.

When I bought them, I thought that even if I didn't like the flavor, they'd be small enough to take like medicine, just to get the Protein. It was a happy surprise that I liked them!

I know, same! <_< I think that it's to avoid dehydration, but it's going to be really hard to get 64 ounces of Water and 2 Protein Shakes. These will be perfect!

Glad I could help. I'm curious to see what the other flavors taste like. I bought the variety pack.

Let me know how the others are! I have a running list of things I need to buy for post-op :)

Update: I was really short on Protein yesterday so I had 2 of the shots yesterday evening.

Pink Lemonade - it was all right. Not nasty or anything, but not awesome, either.

Orange - do you like Creamsicles? YUM!

I promise I'm not being paid to promote them! ;) Just when you find something that works, you've got to share!

Because, again, it is 6:30 pm and I've only had 46 g of Protein out of my 75g minimum. UGH!

OK, tried the final flavor last night, the cran-grape. Tasted like a grape popsicle. Not bad, but grape isn't my favorite flavor in general. However, I can down .5 oz of anything if I get 15g of Protein out of it! Hope this helps others!

      So my surgery anniversary date is on the 24th of this month, but I had my 1-year follow up early with my surgeon this morning (I have another 1-year followup at the hospital on Monday to get my bloodwork and labs done).
      Anyhoo...my surgeon was very pleased with my results (and so where the office staff apparently, because 3 of the front desk ladies came by my exam room to give me props/high fives/generally gawk at me).
      But get this: he asked if I would be willing to come in for a future photoshoot so that I could be on a poster! And I was all, ummmm....no thanks, LOL.

      Today was a really tough day and I turned to food (and a watered down glass of wine). The interesting part was that I felt REALLY full after eating half my go to cheat snack, tortilla chips with cheese. So the GBP is doing its job!

      The only way I can tell that I'm losing weight is from the scale and my clothes "getting bigger".
