Nutritionist told me that Isopure is 0 carbs and I can't drink it. I inquired about it because I wanted something I can drink like a juice instead of a nasty shake. She told me no-go.

I don't understand this.

It's incredibly easy to add carbohydrates.

She wants you to get some carbs have an Isopure and some applesauce after. This makes no sense to me. And isopure is very common postop, hell that's what my hospital gives you while you're there

Yeah i dont understand either. Applesauce isn’t an option she gives. Only shake and vegetables. Liquids- Water, Decaf coffee/tea, sugar free popsicles, sugar free Jello. I uploaded the paper.

I’m scared To even suggest applesauce.

I will say I started off buying premier just because it was convenient and everyone else swore by it. I AM NOT LONGER THAT PERSON.

I SWEAR by Unjury. It is so good. They even have a chicken Soup Protein mix to use as broth and OMG YUMMMMM!

Ladies and gents. I tried Boost chocolate sensation and I love it. She gave me a free sample and I’m just going to stick to it. No experiments here. I’m not the experimental type.

Hello,

As I cannot stomach "protein" shakes, my dietician suggest I try Protein Water. I was not aware they made such a product:unsure:, but they do :) I have to say it is much better than a shake :)

None of them. I did the Optifast program before surgery and they were all decent. Now I use the Isopure Cookies and cream which gets me 50g of Protein in each 2 scoop serving and tastes like a milkshake.

Maybe see if you can try a different shake?

Does anybody have a picture of the nutrition facts on Premier Protein? Because I need to see how many carbs are in it. Just because it says 1g isn’t true because that’s the “Net”.

I just finished one... here you go!

My surgeons office doesn’t think very highly of the Premier shakes. I guess the Protein source isn’t as good as milk whey. I like the variety of flavors they offer and the ease of RTD. ☹️

The last few weeks I've been freezing my Premier Protein shakes, then putting them in a blender with some skim milk, Splenda, and PB2 Peanut Butter powder. Basically like a milk shake

But I think freezing premier shakes then putting them in a blender makes them much thicker and more enjoyable. Definitely a poor man's milkshake, and honestly it's more filling as well. The pb2 is just the icing on the cake but coffee will make it like a frappe too

Honestly, I've never tried any of these. My favorite is premier. Everything about it is good. While premier is good it’s only 17 servings per can ( powder) & 18 to a case at costco costing 25.99. I would have to buy 4 cases in order to have 3x a day for 30 days.

      Ok...so keeping my daily weight updated on here is getting tedious due to the the daily 0-3 lbs fluctuations.  Soooo...I figure I'm just going to update every 1-2 weeks moving forward.

        Yeah, I kinda do it when I see a new low. Then it fluctuates up and down up and down until I finally see a new low. Mine went down to 131 on Saturday but is now back to 133, lol. So I won't log it till I see 131 for a second time.

        I do my daily weight graph in My Fitness Pal. Much easier and it keeps a cool graph!!

      2. ms.sss

        Me too (sort of). I gifted myself a fancy-shmancy smart scale back in January and it wirelessly updates the data to Apple Health in my phone, which in turn automatically updates MFP (among other apps I have). Very hands off on my part. Updating BP was the only manual weight updating I was doing, which has stopped being fun and instead become a job, now that the weight goes up and down so much.

      3. FluffyChix

        LOL the joys of maintenance! ;) NOT!

      4. sillykitty

        Like @FluffyChix I updated at every new low, consequently I'm now listed as my lowest weight. I should probably update it to where I've been maintaining, which is +3 lbs or so from that weight.

      5. FluffyChix

        Nah, keep your low and stay aware of your upper threshold so you don't hit it. :D ;)

      7 days post revision... I am wiped out! I forgot about the energy depletion stage 
      Logically I know there is some fat left for use... But not much
