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.

Try GNC, I am told they often have individual bottles , like you, I also hate to commit unless I really like something.😝

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.
