protein shakes make me puke



Recommended Posts

My surgery is July 8. I just started trying to drink a Protein Shake a day, just to help with the transition. The first day, I drank a full shake and subsequently threw it up. Today, I drank half a shake, felt like throwing up, but I didn't. I have tried Premier shakes (bananas and cream and caramel). Any suggestions on what to try? I'm getting nervous that all shakes will make me sick.

My choice is Ensure max Protein in strawberry, reminds me of Strawberry Quik.

I like the Core Power Protein Shakes much better, they are not as cloyingly sweet and not as dense. You might try thinning your shake with Water or skim milk if it's the consistency that's bothering you. I also like to pour some in a container and freeze it for a bit. It's akin to ice milk and a bit more tolerable. Hang in there and experiment with other brands until you find something that works for you. Protein is essential and this is the easiest way to get it with the least expenditure of calories.

Sometimes, with no rhyme or reason, milk/dairy negatively affects me. I’m thinking of trying something lactose free. I’m ok with the consistency, it’s just about 30 minutes after, I have a horrible stomachache.

You may have to go to soy or plant Protein. And whey provokes reaction more than isolate.

I got an unflavored soy isolate, mixed it with Water and crystal light. It’s not wonderful, but my stomach can tolerate it. Only 20g of Protein per serving, but at least I can stomach it.

That's a shame. I've heard of other people not liking Protein Shakes on here in the forums. I like them. I use premade GNC Lean shakes (chocolate)

I don’t mind the taste, the whey just wrecks my stomach.

Natures best zero carb Protein drink/water 40 grams protein and hydration all in one. the texture is like a sports drink.

Your tastes buds will change after surgery. Nutrition is more important than taste. You won’t be reliant on shakes after real food stage. If you are throwing up call your Dr to see if it’s a medical issues

Macros:

Natures best zero carb protien drink/water 40 grams protien and hydration all in one. It does not have a thick tecture. Its more like a sports drink.

Whey makes me vomit. Try soy shakes. They have delicious chocolate and vanilla ones on Amazon.

Why not try the chocolate soy isolate? SO GOOOOOD. https://www.amazon.com/Sports-Protein-Isolate-Chocolate-2-Pound/dp/B001DNV53E/ref=sr_1_3?keywords=chocolate+soy+isolate&qid=1558541209&s=gateway&sr=8-3

      Ok I had surgery on Jan 27 2020 so I am 3 weeks out and have lost 32 lbs  I wish I had this done sooner. Now just trying to figure out different things to eat so I am not eating the same thing over and over. I did order some stuff today from the Bariatric Store and that stuff should be here in time for my next phase. I have a goal of 50 lbs by the first of June hope that is attainable. Good luck to every one on this journey
