I'm so excited about... Protien powder???



Recommended Posts

My husband just surprised me and ordered the Starter pack from Unjury so I can try all of their Protein powders. It's scary how excited I am! But I'm ready to see what will work for me on my liquid diet, and for protein after! I feel like this is a step that will get me to my next appointment. Anyone else have a similar experience?

Don't do what I did and buy lots of Protein powder. I could not stomach whey after surgery and ended up giving it all away!

GNC will give you taste samples and I went there after surgery and was able to find a few things.

Good luck!

gabybab I did the same thing! I bought 3 big containers of Protein powder trying to make sure I was prepared for the next 6 weeks. I can hardly stomach it. Big investment too!

I haven't tried the chocolate yet. So far the chicken Soup is the best. I think the unflavored would work in a recipe but not in a drink. Made that mistake today.

I'm glad you're so excited. That's good for your future self. I stick with the pre-mades and generally GNC Lean shake in chocolate. My husband likes to try the flavors, banana and strawberry, but I stick with the basics.

We are almost twins! I am a patient of Dr. Fearing as well, and have similar stats (I am an inch shorter and about 10 pounds more than your current weight). Have you scheduled your surgery yet? Mine is 6/17. How are the Unjury powders? I haven't had any of them but would love to mix up my current liquid diet of Premier Protein shakes! Good luck to you!

In powders I like the flavor of Body Fortress strawberry. In ready made Ensure High Protein or Max in Strawberry, I recommend them but everybody's taste buds are different. Somebody quoted a brand and flavor I found absolutely YUCKY.Shame I couldn't post them my overflow and rejects!

I initially thought I would use the pre-made Protein Drinks so I bought a few boxes so I would not have to worry. After I came home from the hospital, I literally could not stand the scent of any pre-made shakes. I ended up buying a container of Whole Foods Whey chocolate Protein powder and some almond milk and was good to go. It was soo weird though because I had previously been drinking Premier Protein, Slim Fast and Atkins with no issues.

I’m not a big fan of the powders, but I LOVE the Premier Protein drinks. Every flavor I’ve tried so far is great: Cookies & cream, banana, caramel, vanilla. Yum! Definitely something to be excited about :)
Where do you buy yours? I bought a pack of the vanilla and the chocolate at Walmart before my surgery but that was all they had.
The vanilla I didn't think was bad but the chocolate one was kinda hard to get down. So I thought I'd give the others a try.

I tried the Premier rtd in chocolate and caramel...oh my gosh, that was toothache sweet lol. I got my sample box in from Unjury last week and so far have drank the 2 rtd and while the chocolate wasn't good to me, the vanilla was..just a tad too sweet, but pretty good. This is weird because i'm a total chocolate nut. I've also tried the vanilla and chocolate splendor packs mixed with almond milk and they are really good...I put more almond milk in to cut some of the sweetness.

I agree with this. I also became whey intolerant after surgery & had to give $100’s of product away.

      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.
