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!

        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.
