Fairlife Core Power Protein Coffee Shake



Recommended Posts

Hi! Does anyone drink the Fairlife Core Power Protein coffee shakes? I am in love with these, especially because of the 26 grams of protein in each one and the bit of caffeine! However, they are high in carbs at 21 grams and have 19 grams of sugar. Am I making a bad choice to drink these? Thanks for any advice!!

That sugar content is high... And it appears to be added sugar not naturally occurring, then honey, pectin Monk Fruit and stevia for more sweetness... Are you pre or post op?

In your instructions, what does it say in regards to Protein shakes/supplements and their specifications? Follow those guidelines closely. Ask your NUT about this type for further clarity

That has waaaaay too much sugar for me but since I love flavored coffee I just mix my Columbian Supremo coffee from the Keurig with about 3-4 ounces Premier Protein shake. I like chocolate, caramel and vanilla done this way. Just like a Starbucks latte without the guilt....

I may suggest that you are "in love" with it because of its high sugar concentration which makes it very palatable, however beware carbs begets carbs...

At 8 months out those nutrition stats wouldn't bother me, but at 5 weeks it would have. But I don't really indulge in coffee more than once a week.

Well I was avoiding coffee as recommended. My guidelines have a fairlife core Protein Shake option but was confusing as to which one. These numbers seemed high. Will follow up with my NUT. Thank you all!

Are you sure it says fairlife Protein Shake as opposed to fairlife milk? Double check with your NUT.

I have a handout from the surgeon that lists preferred supplements. Fair Oaksfarm Core Power shakes is on that list and when I go to www.coreprotein.com I find the Fairlife Core Power Shakes. The coffee one actually has lower carbs and sugar than chocolate and vanilla. I guess by this list I'm ok...it's just such a dramatic difference from some of the other options. I don't want to mess up.

I stay away from anything with a sugar content that is higher than 5 grams, as this is what was instructed with my program. The cabs don't bother me, as I'm not carb crazy, but the sugars would concern me.

I make my own out of crushed ice, carbmaster skim milk from kroger, cold brew coffee and a scoop of sprouts brand pea powder chocolate Protein Powder. Much lower sugar and about 30 grams Protein. Fairlife stuff is also expensive so per serving this is cheaper.

      I met with my surgeon on Friday.. I've completed all my tests and all my nutrition meetings as well as meeting the weight loss requirements for my insurance. We are officially submitting to insurance for approval and I was given a surgery date of January 16th 2020 (13 days before my birthday!) Fingers crossed all goes through

      Ok, now im getting old...my body gets me up at my normal 5am dog walk even when it's the weekend, vacation, and most importantly when I'm sick. So now that I have more energy, my body wants to make sure I suffer even longer during the day when I have a cold! Damn being healthy again! (:D)

      At my Primary Physician appt, the Doc said you know you lost a whole person. When you started seeing me you were 265lbs now you're 148lbs.
      She's right... I lost the fun me 😂 Joking Joking Joking. It's amazing who keeps track when you don't like insurance and browsers feeds
