Protien and Broth!



Recommended Posts

Hey guys!

This past Monday I finally got sleeved and I am having so much trouble finding ways to get my protien in! During the pre-op diet I guzzled down Protein Shakes (even though they made me gag) but now I’m post-op and I’ve tried the premier protien clear and it’s disgusting! I also wanted to know if any one had any tips for broth! I drank it fine pre-op but now even the mere thought of broth makes me gag! I’ve been living on sugar free popsicles for the past 3 days! Help! Does anyone have any recommendations on ways to get my Protein and broth in during the clear liquid stage??

I take the chicken noodle Soup or vegetable beef and drain off the broth. It tastes a lot better.

I prefer Protein20 Protein Water from Sam's. Not quite as sweet. Also, the other ones can be mixed with sugar-free lemonade to lessen the sweetness. Don't get too concerned about your protein right now, hydration is the most important. It takes a lot of people a few weeks to get all their protein

Have you tried any Protein powders instead of RTD protein? I'm not a fan of RTD drinks; they taste super artificial and have a bad after taste to me. For me, powders have a better taste.

I had my husband get wonton Soup from my favorite Chinese restaurant- and then strained it (he ate the “good stuff”!) It was comfortingly familiar and was my favorite broth the first couple of weeks after my sleeve.

I want to try those, but they are so expensive. Is there anywhere I can buy just one bottle to try? I'd hate to buy a case and not like them.

I am still pre op but I agree that the Premier Protein Clears are gross. I bought a pack, and when I ran out of shakes I tried to drank one...YUCK! I could only get it down by adding about 1/2 pack of crystal light lemonade packet.

      Getting a little nervous about post surgery life adaptation. I really want to succeed, but habits are so hard to break.

      Think I am hitting a stall-ish period. Weight loss is def slowing and I need a kickstart to get it going again....any suggestions?

      Good news and Meh news...
      Meh: so I think I experienced/am experiencing my first stall-ish since surgery and now I get how frustrating it can be!  So annoying to wake up every morning to watch the scale report a gain or loss of the same 1.5 pounds for over 2 weeks.  *sigh*.  Some say put the scale away, but I log my weight every morning to get a daily moving average of my weight.  So long as this moving average is not heading upwards (which it isn’t and hasn’t since post-op) then I am good with my curent “minimalist” weekly weight loss rate, however small I think it is 🙄.
      However.
      The Good news:
      To allow for some self back patting, and to remind myself of the bigger picture, I set a bunch of interim goals/milestones... a few of which are 10lbs increment weight loss goals:
      So this morning, after hovering within 1.5 pounds of an interim goal for over 2 weeks, I weighed in at 164.8, and officially lost 70 lbs!  In 4 months.  That is 30% of my starting body weight.  Or the equivalent of my 10 year old neice. How crazy is that.
      Next Goal: weigh in at 162lbs to be merely overweight (and not obese!)

      I am in the Pre-Op stage.  I have 4 more nutrition classes to go to.  I've had my endoscopy with favorable results although I was told I had an abnormal z-line.  Everything looks good so far.  Had my team appointment with the psychologist and have my pulmonologist  this week.  I chose the sleeve
