Protein shakes

I was also told to stop doing Protein Shakes and get my Protein from food very early on. I don't know if I really understand the reason and I know a lot of people who still do a Protein Shake for Breakfast. I suppose there is more pure nutrition in food than i a shake.

I don't remember the brand right now but there are also shakes that are more like juice -- I have the Fuzzy Naval flavor and it is really good. got it from the Vitamin Shoppe.

Syntrax Nectar has a fuzzy navel flavor and a lot of other fruit flavors and coffee flavors. I'm not a coffee drinker, but the fruity ones were relatively decent tasting and not heavy like a shake. I mixed them with plain yogurt for a while rather than making a drink...not terrible. They are 25+ grams of Protein no other calories, pretty much no Vitamins.

I also found packets of Isopure unflavored at costco- again only calories are protein, pretty much Vitamin free. Isopure mixes really well. I have used it in food and no one else notices, I do smell the Protein Powder smell though.

Overall I have stopped using shakes for now as I am nauseated by the taste. Greek yogurt, cottage cheese, eggs,chicken are some of my go tos.

How do people like the Pure Protein Shakes? I have a $3 off coupon, are they worth it?

I drink the Atkins Plus Protein. I like vanilla & chocolate. Hated premier and couldn't force myself to drink them. The Atkins plus Protein actually has a better protein vs carb aspect too.
I will look into that, if I recall the atkins one I tried had much less protein than premier...which I also do not love....

Regular Atkins is only 15g Protein, and not worth the struggle of getting a shake down. The Atkins plus protein are 30g so much better! Lol
Oh, I should add: the downside is that there are only 2 flavors- Creamy vanilla and Milk chocolate. If you're good with either of those then I suggest giving one a try. Can't really hurt, right?

I’m three months out. I still drink them. Sometimes I make my own with Protein Powder. If someone wanted me to stop, they would have to have a really good reason.

      Today I had my first post surgery update. I haven't eaten anything other than the occasional popsicle and my daily protein shakes in 2 weeks. I have lost 30lbs in those 2 weeks. The doctor is happy. I am starting to see changes I have no more swelling in my legs after sitting at my work desk all day. I don't get to eat an egg till next week. I have my total carb and protein counts so when I can start eating I know how much I can have. My surgeon / doctor has been great thru this whole process. He listens and gives good information about what to expect and what I should be doing. He has an amazing team here in Boise. I am glad I went with him to do this life changing process.

      Looking on the bright side: both a loss of 1lb/week and a loss of 4lbs/week are LOSSES.  So long as the trendline is going down, I'm happy.

      Thought I'd give an update.  I'm over half way to my goal, which is awesome, and I've lost over 12 inches in my waist!  The weight isn't coming off as quickly as I had hoped, but I am also not exercising and still not getting even close to the amount of water I should be drinking, so slow weight loss is not all that surprising.  Sometimes I'm just "over it" and try to eat huge portions like I used to, but, thankfully, I feel the restriction of my smaller stomach and can't go crazy.  In general, I'm quite good, just trying to live my life.
      I now have a motivation to start exercising, though... I booked a plane ticket to Germany for the end of September, so this is a good chance to get strong, get hydrated, and reach my weight goal.
