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 hate these Lovenox shots.  That is all! LOL
      Feeling like a pin cushion.
      I know they are needed and it's only 10 days worth but I really hate giving myself shots. It's one of the reasons I want to be healthy because diabetes runs in my family

      Yas, I am HOME! Traveling back home was interesting but I made it.
      For the first time in my flying life we had NO drink service due to the turbulence! It was crazy. I had to call the steward to bring me water. You CAN NOT let yourself get behind on drinking! That would be dangerous.

        yeahhhhhh we are only 3 months apart on the sleeve journey. I found it has been way easier to lose with the sleeve than it was with the band...... although i loved my band. Sleeve was the easiest SX i ever had too.....

        @bayougirlmrss I was told this is the fastest weight loss surgery, but I am not really looking for extremely fast. I want it to be healthy. This is our new tool and we can use it wisely for sure. Are you taking your biotin and vitamins?

      TOMORROW IS MY DAY! (note this did not post properly so I am still  posting it after the fact)
      I am so very excited! My sister is here with me and my son. I am so excited. My anesthesiologist called me tonight to discuss our plans for tomorrow. I am not feeling nervous at all. Just excited for the future!
      I did buy a few bottles of CFpreop which is really suppose to help you stay hydrated. It's pricey but I feel it's worth it. I tried the Watermelon tonight. I have to stop all liquids after midnight and I go into the hospital at 5:30am for check in. My surgery is at 8am.
      SO HAPPY for this journey!
      You can get the CFpreop on Amazon if anyone is interested. It comes in Watermelon and White Grape.

      Today I said I’m an XS or size 8 (Aust) at a clothing store. I never thought I’d say those words and say them with confidence. And when I commented a dress was too big on me I was told it was the smallest size. As was the belt I wanted. 
       
      I tried on a slim fitting singlet dress yesterday & was shocked to realise the lumpy bits on the dress were my hip bones. I have an hour glass shape so I always had hips but never ones that stuck out on the front of my body! 

      I’ve been a size 10 before - for about 5 minutes. While I am now confident about saying I’m an 8, clothes shopping is all still a bit freaky for me. It’s not that I’m focussed on the size on the label. I’m well aware the cut/line of the clothes and the designer’s style will dictate what size I need or if it will suit my body shape. The size is the starting point & it’s starting at an 8/XS/38 which is a big mind set change. It’s thinking a pair of pants will be too small & discovering they are almost too big. 

      While I’m still coming to terms with my actual new body shape and size, I’m very happy to be in this new reality.

        ...ah! I see you are from Brisbane! We lived there for a year when Mr. got a work contract there.

        I have fond (and not-so-fond, lol) memories of the weather there this time of year. It it crazy hot yet?

        Hit 42degress last weekend but this week has been in the rather pleasant low 30s (relatively of course😜). Could still wear jeans but thank goodness for air conditioning. Worse is the drought. Everything is dying or dead. Very sad & depressing.

      4. ms.sss

        I feel ya.
