Good morning so I just started my liquid diet today I don’t get my nutrition class until tomorrow. These shakes are sickening sweet. Does anyone have any tips or just power through it?

You can dilute with more milk to help with sweetness. Not sure what Protein since you didn't state which, not everyone uses the same products pre-op.

But pretty much, pre-op is all about powering through stuff. Just do your best to stay on task and not stray from your pre-op diet.

Pretty much every single person gets a different pre-op diet around here. It seems that surgeon's all have their own ways of doing things. That includes what Proteins they suggest.

Little tip for post-op since LOTS of folks will have issues with lactose post-op. Ensure that your Protein is all or mostly Protein Isolate and not Protein Concentrate. Concentrates have high levels of lactose since they are really just concentrated milk. Isolates have little to no lactose since they are highly filtered and refined.

several companies make unflavored Protein powders. It does have a slight taste, though, so you'd have to mix it with something else to cover that up. Unjury makes a chicken soup-flavored powder, but then , you have to order that through their Web site, so it'd probably be a week before you get it - maybe too late.

I got GENEPRO from Amazon on Prime Deliery. Today is the first day i used it and i feel oh so good about getting all my Protein in before i leave work. Now i can focus the rest of my night on Water intake since i still have about 30 ounces to go.. and if i really want something i will have a popcicle.

      I have to say, even more than 2 years out, it is so much easier to be good when your busy and so easy to go wrong when your bored.  Crappy weather and the wife is sick so i feel trapped in this house and i have to really watch myself.  At least the holiday leftovers are gone.
      Going to get out this week even if for only a few hours, maybe go see  Ford vs Ferrari that looks real good.
      Ok, whining over, I hope everyone is doing well and had a good thanksgiving.

        I hear ya. I notice the only time I ever "feel like eating" when I'm not actually hungry is when I'm watching TV for too long.

      Well yesterday I went bra shopping. Again. I could put pleats in the cups of the new ones I’d bought just three months ago so it was back to the department store. Foolishly I wore a dress so spent an hour in the fitting room wearing only my knickers as two fitters (yes it took two of them) ran back & forth with different bras to try. Those full length mirrors & fluorescent lights are super unflattering on the loose skin. Yikes! 
      Of course I’m between cup sizes & deflated at the top so only two of the most expensive brands around would fit me. At least a couple I bought were on sale.  Sigh. 
      So I’ve gone from a 18F to a 14F to now a 10FF/G.  At least I’m in two hook bras again and not the clumsy three & four hook ones. They are soooo much prettier (all lacy & fine mesh - ooh la la). 
      I really need to buy new knickers too - those old size 16 boy legs are like loose legged shorts now - but I’m just not sure what size. Plus after buying the new bras I can’t afford to buy knickers yet lol!
