Are you looking for the BariatricPal Store? Go now!

Recommended Posts

Thoughts on any of the Inspire products? I know this is Bariatric Pal and they have their own store.. I was just looking for an Eggnog Protein Powder LOL.. but not sure between the two sites. I do not have enough information about either one or the other. I know there are many different brands and i really dont want to go all out buying something i may not like.. If this post isnt allowed please delete.. I am not promoting one brand over the other.. just trying to do a little research LOL

THanks

I haven't tried their Eggnog flavor, but I've tried several: vanilla, Cafe Bella, Orange Cream, Ice Cream Sandwich, and Unflavored. I hate the Vanilla and the Orange Cream—both of them were awful. The Orange one actually tasted fine to me, but had a terrible smell, so it was hard for me to get past that. The Ice Cream Sandwich one was okay, but lacked in flavor. The Cafe Bella is supposed to be a vanilla latte, with a hint of cinnamon, but for me, the cinnamon was overbearing, so I didn't like it. The Unflavored is fine, but it's the only unflavored powder I've tried, so I don't have anything to compare it to. I like that I can customize it to make my own flavors. I was really excited to try Inspire, but I doubt that I'll try their Protein Powder again.

I'm not a big fan of the egg nog powder from Inspire, but the Cafe Bella, which is the other I've tried is super yummy. I'd pass on their egg nog, personally.

I bought the variety pack of Inspire. Pre-surgery, I thought they were okay. Post surgery, my tummy is loving them. I really like the Peanut Butter cup as it tastes like a reese's. Waiting til I get paid to buy more! They are expensive but really yummy. I'm curious to how the cannoli one tastes like.

Unjury chicken Soup flavor is quite delicious as well. If you are looking for Protein Soups.

The Inspire brand mixes so easily and no clumping problems. I like the vanilla, cafe amore, the Buttermint (which is seasonal and out of stock right now), the Peanut Butter cookie and I love the also seasonal pumpkin pie. I also love the beef stroganoff Bone Broth. I did not like the Mexican chocolate or Blueberry Cheesecake. The regular chocolate cake flavor was alright.

      2019 - A New Year and a New Start on life!!!!
      On 3/14 - I went into the Hospital at 6am to have my surgery <the sleeve>.   My weigh at that time was 278 pounds.   On this day I was in and out of it I don't remember a whole lot I just remember being in a lot of pain.
      On 3/15 - They made me get up and walk a few times in the middle of the night and walk doctor came in and I was able to be discharged if I was eating and doing everything on his little checklist.   I went home at 6pm.  All I remember was going home crawling into bed and taking more pain medicine it felt like I got hit in the stomach about 50 times.
      On 3/16 - I know they say that walking is the best thing you can do after having surgeries but I was not feeling it at all every time I sat up, I got dizzy needless to say this day I didn't get much walking in and the smell of food just made me gag.  I couldn't even take the pain medicine that was in liquid form.  I stayed in bed for most of the day.
      On 3/17 - I did a lot better on this day I was actually able to eat a little bit of Jell-O and drink a little bit of broth.    Still can't seem to take that pain medicine without wanting to gag.   I definitely have been able to keep down water and even had my nephew take a little bit of Crystal Light and some ice chips and mix it in a bullet to make like a slushie.  That was yummy!
      This brings me to today 3/18 - I have been trying to drink protein water to get protein in my body. I was able to eat some Jell-O today and keep it down. I also was able to sit up for 5 hours and was able to be sociable again.  I was also finally able to take some pain medicine again without gagging <Thank God>.     Pain is slowly going away.   I have my first one week doctor visit on 3/20 so we will see how that goes

      I'm a finisher of a half marathon! Completed yesterday on a beautiful day to run. My hips and Knee are pretty angry with me today, but we finished at 2:19. Not bad for my first half. I was able to run with my wife, so that made it much nicer and easier to get through

      Tonight, I swallowed my semi-horse-pill-sized multi-vitamin without wanting to hurl!
      So long, expensive chewable multi-vitamin, from now I can buy the cheaper, tablet vites at Costco.
      Next: try to swallow the actual horse-pill-sized calcium pills without wanting to hurl....
