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

25g per serving. Tastes like pudding. Mostly. lol

      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

      So went to my surgeon today for one month follow-up. Last time I was there he wanted me to put on 4kgs but oops I’ve lost another 2kgs. Told him it was intended, was trying to maintain, upped my food intake, was stable for almost 3 weeks but last weekend broke it.
      Mum turned 80. Drinks at neighbours, a couple of crackers & dip, home late, no dinner. Out all morning, followed by celebratory family lunch, home late, no dinner. Whole dietary routine out the window. Did have a protein bar & tuna frittata muffin in between but didn’t eat much at all those two days.
      What dumbfounded me was he was ok with it. I told him I didn’t want to put on his 4kg because of the weight gain many experience in the 12+months in maintenance. He agreed with me. What the??? Invasion of the body snatchers??? Totally opposite position from last month. 
      He was also ok with my stopping my multivitamins. Agreed with my thinking that is better to feel ok & eat then be nauseated & not eat. He’ll just monitor my bloods to ensure no problems which is what they do anyway.
      Not complaining.

      Just came from my GPs office. He would want me upping to 1500kcals a day. Have no idea on how I'm gonna do this - a year ago it would been an issue to come _down_ to 1500 kcals 😂
