Best Plant-Based Protein Shakes?



Recommended Posts

I can't have whey concentrate OR whey isolates. I am looking for GOOD tasting plant-based shakes. My dietitian says it has to be under 200 calories, 10g carbs or less and 3g of fat or less, so I am really struggling to find ones that meet the criteria with ONE exception of Planted by Unjury which is super gross! That is the only one she knew of to recommend.

I tried egg Protein, too, and it may be worse than the Unjury.

What are some decent soy, pea, or rice Protein Shakes that aren't high in carbs?? I found AdvantEdge... but is there anything else to compliment it?

For reals stressing over this, lol.

Nice! I'm going to Wal-Mart on the 8th to stock up on all my puree baby food stash for the second week post-op, and to grab a ton of AdvantEdge. I'll see if they have that in stock!

Look into the store the Vitamin Shoppe or online they have a big section. That's were I had to go for mine. Because I am allergic to soy and sugar substitute.

I actually JUST got fantastic news - my dietitian is letting me continue with Atkins shakes. They are *slightly* over the fat content, but are half soy/half whey and they DO NOT make me nauseous. WOOHOO!!! You have NO CLUE how much better I feel about this!

You can also buy pure pea, soy, hemp, rice , etc. Protein and make your own shakes. Add Water or the plant based milk of your choice, fruit or flavorings and you're set.

I did buy an unflavored rice Protein. I haven't tried it yet. I figured I could add it into virtually anything for a boost of protein.

I love Huel. They have powder and ready-to-drink shakes.

Per 1 scoop, there's 200 calories, 6g fat, 1g sugar, and 14g Protein.

Huel is on the pricier side, but it comes out to $1-3/meal depending on the # of scoops you use (1-2).

I've used Vega Protein Powder in the past and really enjoyed it. There wasn't a single flavor that I tried that I didn't like.

      What's your experience w/the Dumping Syndrome?
      How long did it last?
      How did you cope w/it?
      Has the dumping syndrome gotten worse each time more as the years go by?
       
      I had the Gastric Bypass in 7/2015. The last couple of times i got the Dumping Syndrome twice last year, and once this year have been the worst. My last one was on Easter Sunday. I felt Fatigue, nauseous, gagging, shortness of breath, laid down holding my tummy, wanting to cry, feeling desperate, it got to a point where i basically was unconscious. Is it normal to fall asleep without no warning and waking up out of nowhere to "wth happened, how long was i out for"? It's gotten scary, and don't know if this is part of the dumping syndrome. I've had more times but not as bad as the last couple of times. 😢

      When I get my surgery and lose weight I might write a book about my weight loss surgery so I can help anyone who started at my weight, or who think about getting the surgery.
