High Protein Homemade shakes? Help



Recommended Posts

4 bananas in 1 shake sounds like a heck of a lot. Have you calculated the calorie count etc?

Just got a real good high speed blender 3hp. Has pulse and blend settings from 1-10.

putin 20oz soy milk, 4 medium Bananas, 3 servings of Protein Powder, half a dozen small ice cubes and blitzed it all up in about one minute high speed it was completely liquid milkshake.

Beautiful. Will come in handy for when I do have operation and have to live off liquids can blend all kinds of fruit and vegetables :)

This is an absolutely RIDICULOUS recipe and ill-advised for normie (pre-op) and most especially post op peeps!

First off it follows a premise that "If a little is 'ok' or 'acceptable', then a f**king CRAPTON of the same things shouldn't be any big deal." Bull caca.

Let's take a look at this recipe from MFP:

That jug of liquid sugar/ "milk shake" probably makes a quart of drink, maybe only 28oz. And I will bet you dollars for donuts you drank it in 2-3 sittings within 2 hours of each other. I bet you did. You sent your blood sugar and insulin on a roller coaster! 123 carbs and 61g of SUGAR in it dude! Welcome to the obesity ball! Seriously!

If you try to do that after surgery? OMG. I would be spiraling from dumping. WAYYYYYY too much sugar! WAYYYY too many carbs, and so many many many useless calories! GAH!

Here's a very thick, lovely alternative that is more in keeping. It makes about 20oz. At 1 year, I will drink the whole thing as a meal then not eat or drink for 4-6 hours after that.

Excuse me a blender is a very useful tool

Dude, don't blame the tool for a ridiculous recipe! LOL. Blenders rock. The thinking that went into formulating and executing that recipe needs to study how to eat before and after WLS!!! Seriously.

Okay calm down I was merely showing how well the blender was able to blend those ingredients I remember someone saying about a blender they had that left chunks, I didn't actually expect someone to follow that idea and I've got months away until I qualify for surgery and I've done numerous research so I know what I have to do when the time comes, I know exactly what is needed and I'm preparing for it everyday by reading and buying healthy stuff like Protein and tuna for when my time has come. In Australia we can't get surgery before 12 months of membership has passed!!

Your time is now. Today. Not some point 1 year in the future. The more work you can do to develop new habits and review and understand what goes into prompting you to make the choices you make today are going to impact the long term effects of your surgery (not to mention the safety of having your surgery). If you mistakenly believe you can sit back and enjoy this year as a free ride of food then let the surgery do the "hard work", you're sadly mistaken.

I can't do anything that will lower my BMI because it makes much harder to qualify so I'm learning by reading everyday until the time comes. Once I get much closer to the time I'll be ready to change everything I've done it before... Now goodnight you don't have to fight everyone's battles your not my mother

Wait. How fat are you? I think you said you were over 300-400lbs? (At this weight--you are right now a ticking time bomb without ever putting that blender full of sugar and carbs and inflammation down your piehole!) Facts are...you could bust your ass this year and lose 50-75lbs and be in BETTER shape to qualify for surgery. Just ask your surgeon's office about that. I have lost 80lbs in the first year post op. BUT, I lost 65lbs in the year preceding my RNY surgery by getting rid of addictive foods behaviors, changing how I ate/what I ate/how much I ate. And through it all, I STILL had co-morbidities out the ass that allowed me to have my surgery! AND was still >35BMI!!!

Start visiting your PCP monthly for a weight loss program! Never miss a month. Go in each month and get your weight documented and document your commitment to change your lifestyle and diet. Show food logs and exercise logs. Above all else, they MUST weigh you monthly and make monthly doctor's notes about your weight loss efforts and how the losses are going--even in months where you show a gain, or no loss. It needs to show uninterrupted attempts every month for as long as it takes for you to get surgery.

Don't waste an entire year!

I've talked to people in my local City and they said the BMI is the main thing you need to be 35+ BMI for surgery.. I'm not risking anything to make it harder for surgery I need it for my future for long term help....

I've decided when I'll be ready to start my journey okay thank you for your input

What is your BMI now? Mine was 49.3 BMI. I could have WLS with anything >BMI 40 for no other reason. At 35-39BMI I needed 1 other co-morbidity. I had a crapton of them. LOL. Again, betting you are over 300lbs, let's pretend you are 350lbs and are 6'0" even. Your BMI is calculated around 47.5BMI. You have AMPLE room to lose weight. And not trying to do that with a doctor and monthly recorded weight loss attempts is cray and rationalization IMHO.

Mikeyy do you realise that you don’t have to wait until your private health insurance kicks in to go and see a surgeon? I think the sooner you make an appointment and do that the better. Then you will know for definite what their requirements are. Do not assume that you will be automatically accepted. Most reputable surgeons require evidence of attempts to lose weight, it is also likely that a psychological assessment will be required.

Dont assume that surgery is a magic wand. I know people that thought that and they have failed spectacularly.

Fluffys advice to start trying to lose weight now is sound. The smaller and healthier you are when you have the surgery the lower the risk.

I do 2 scoops vanilla whey and don’t weigh out but add honey, almond milk, Greek yoghurt, Peanut Butter powder, a banana and strawberry plus differing amounts of ice depending on whether the strawberries are fresh or frozen. It makes a large smoothie so I put it into cups and eat it like ice cream after my initial shake. I got the recipe from my smoothie place. They call it PB&H. It’s delicious and extremely high in Protein.

      2019 - A New Year and a New Start on life!!!!
      On 3/14 - I went into the Hospital at 6am to have my surgery <the sleeve>.   My weigh at that time was 278 pounds.   On this day I was in and out of it I don't remember a whole lot I just remember being in a lot of pain.
      On 3/15 - They made me get up and walk a few times in the middle of the night and walk doctor came in and I was able to be discharged if I was eating and doing everything on his little checklist.   I went home at 6pm.  All I remember was going home crawling into bed and taking more pain medicine it felt like I got hit in the stomach about 50 times.
      On 3/16 - I know they say that walking is the best thing you can do after having surgeries but I was not feeling it at all every time I sat up, I got dizzy needless to say this day I didn't get much walking in and the smell of food just made me gag.  I couldn't even take the pain medicine that was in liquid form.  I stayed in bed for most of the day.
      On 3/17 - I did a lot better on this day I was actually able to eat a little bit of Jell-O and drink a little bit of broth.    Still can't seem to take that pain medicine without wanting to gag.   I definitely have been able to keep down water and even had my nephew take a little bit of Crystal Light and some ice chips and mix it in a bullet to make like a slushie.  That was yummy!
      This brings me to today 3/18 - I have been trying to drink protein water to get protein in my body. I was able to eat some Jell-O today and keep it down. I also was able to sit up for 5 hours and was able to be sociable again.  I was also finally able to take some pain medicine again without gagging <Thank God>.     Pain is slowly going away.   I have my first one week doctor visit on 3/20 so we will see how that goes

      I'm a finisher of a half marathon! Completed yesterday on a beautiful day to run. My hips and Knee are pretty angry with me today, but we finished at 2:19. Not bad for my first half. I was able to run with my wife, so that made it much nicer and easier to get through

      Tonight, I swallowed my semi-horse-pill-sized multi-vitamin without wanting to hurl!
      So long, expensive chewable multi-vitamin, from now I can buy the cheaper, tablet vites at Costco.
      Next: try to swallow the actual horse-pill-sized calcium pills without wanting to hurl....
