Water/ hydration before protein?



Recommended Posts

Hello,

I just had the gastric sleeve about 72 hours ago and because of the pain and nausea I am finding it difficult to get my Water intake and my Protein intake where I was told it should be. Am I right that I should be focusing more on water? At this point, I feel like I'm failing miserably on both ends. Any advice would help. Thanks everyone.

Don't worry about anything at this point except Water. Just keep sipping water all day. Dehydration is the #1 reason for ER visits directly after WLS. Your body has enough reserves to keep itself going for a long time without consuming Protein. That will get easier as time goes by. You're not failing, what you're experiencing is completely normal. You got this!

yeah Water, keep sipping. i was told the food source for the body is all that fat we have. i recommend having the water bottles that equal the amount the dr told you and make that your goal.

Water is definitely #1

But, try Protein water of you like fruity water. Best of luck!

i can tell you Protein Water gives me bad gas, also might turn your stool different colors. protein20 mixed berry is pretty good. the grape one freaked me out with green stool.

Has anyone tried the Ensure brand Protein waters, Wal-Mart , blast their greedy little souls deleted Protein20, but they still,have blueberry pomegranate and and a fruity punch flavor, almost $7, hate to throw my money into their gaping financial money-bag if it's no good. 👜

I had my surgery on 1/29. I'm having trouble drinking enough Water and getting in Protein. I started sipping on Premier Protein Clear Protein Drink. P sugar, 20g protein and only 90 calories. I have the Orange Mango. They have a strawberry one too.
