Protein Powders, best taste, little or no after-tsete? Suggestions, please?



Recommended Posts

Hi, I am new to the site, my first post. I just saw the dietician and am overwhelmed by the shopping list of Protein Drinks, Protein waters and protein powders choices to buy in the next few weeks before surgery. Any recommendations of what tastes the best, with little or no after taste? Thank you!

We have the best intentions to stock up and prepare before surgery, but learn from my mistake and don't buy too much. I found Premier Protein the most palatable, I bought a metric shiz-ton of it, and now I have to hope that I can return it because your tastes change and I can't stomach it. Many people like Premier Protein, especially when mixed in coffee. I've been making my own with Greek yogurt and Fairlife milk. Fairlife milk is really helpful to have on hand, it has more protein and less sugar than regular milk, it is lactose-free and it tastes like regular milk. I've been using it to thin out other products that are too sweet and to use instead of Water to give things a protein boost.

I really like Isopure's powder protien drink. I prefer the texture and taste over the heavier vanilla and chocolate protien. It's way cheaper than by the bottle and being an isolate your body breaks is down easier. I like the fruit punch and citrus flavors - a bit sour tasting at first.

I'm in love with whey Protein Powder Isolate by BulkSupplements. I bought mine from Amazon. I love this stuff. I mix it plain Water and it taste like extremely watered down welfare milk power lol. You know, that farina your mom had in the pantry when you were a kid. Oh, and it mixes so freakin' easy! I put it in my cup, give it a hard stare and bam! 8 - 12 oz of Protein at 122 calories, no sugars or fat and less than 1 carb.

Premiere is good ready made, Quest is a good powder to pick up at a store, tastes pretty darn good, but if I am prepared enough to order online the very best I’ve tasted is Inspire Protein from BariatricPal. They have no gross whey taste and lots of good flavors.

I am so grateful that Muscle Milk Protein powder and shakes was on my list. I can make hot chocolate out of it or throw it in the blender with ice. Mixed it in my cream of wheat. Other than that I like Premier shakes and I have the CVS brand in chocolate and vanilla. I like them best ice cold. They tend to give me a Vitamin like aftertaste. Loved it before surgery not as well aft er r.

      Ok I had surgery on Jan 27 2020 so I am 3 weeks out and have lost 32 lbs  I wish I had this done sooner. Now just trying to figure out different things to eat so I am not eating the same thing over and over. I did order some stuff today from the Bariatric Store and that stuff should be here in time for my next phase. I have a goal of 50 lbs by the first of June hope that is attainable. Good luck to every one on this journey

      So went to my surgeon today for one month follow-up. Last time I was there he wanted me to put on 4kgs but oops I’ve lost another 2kgs. Told him it was intended, was trying to maintain, upped my food intake, was stable for almost 3 weeks but last weekend broke it.
      Mum turned 80. Drinks at neighbours, a couple of crackers & dip, home late, no dinner. Out all morning, followed by celebratory family lunch, home late, no dinner. Whole dietary routine out the window. Did have a protein bar & tuna frittata muffin in between but didn’t eat much at all those two days.
      What dumbfounded me was he was ok with it. I told him I didn’t want to put on his 4kg because of the weight gain many experience in the 12+months in maintenance. He agreed with me. What the??? Invasion of the body snatchers??? Totally opposite position from last month. 
      He was also ok with my stopping my multivitamins. Agreed with my thinking that is better to feel ok & eat then be nauseated & not eat. He’ll just monitor my bloods to ensure no problems which is what they do anyway.
      Not complaining.
