Sleeve Post-op protein shakes, weeks 2&3



Recommended Posts

Hi guys,

I understand that I am supposed to consume 60-80g of Protein daily, but I know it will be complicated with the recommended amount of Water I have to drink. Has anyone doubled up on the dose of Protein Powder, like two or three scoops to get the required amount of protein?

I don't think we're supposed to but I do it from time to time. I haven't had any issues yet.

These are awesome. I buy them from Amazon and drink 2 a day. You are also getting 20 oz of Water per bottle.

No, this will not work. As much as the logic behind it that you are consuming the days amount of protein, our bodies can only absorb so much at one time. When it comes to protein it's said that the human body can at max absorb around 25-30 grams in one serving. Anymore then that it's going on the toilet and your wasting your protein. Hope this helps.
