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!

it's funny how different people's tastes are - Unjury products are one of my favorites!

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.

      Yesterday I "officially" eclipsed the 100 lb mark.  I'm sure if you're in any other country than the US, the 45.3 kg mark doesn't sound as much of a milestone, but it's very cathartic for me to post that I hit it. 
      I recently read back through both my BP status updates and my private journal and hitting this milestone makes all the things I "worried" about seem stupid, but I know they're not stupid because they were very real at the time.  Also, I think if I didn't give these fears my full attention, I may not have been as successful as I have been to date.
      I'm about 50 more pounds off my end goal and I know that will not be the end, I will continue to strive for bettering myself in both physical and emotional ways.  I have to hunker down and get this done. 
      I'm noticing if I don't exercise every day, the weight loss stalls quite a bit.  I'm not really into the 80/20 theory with diet and exercise, I think there's a genetic modifier that needs to be applied and it's different for everyone, just my opinion... don't hold it against me.

      RE: the running/training
      Honestly it started with me just doing laps around the kitchen that first post-op week.
      In a week, I graduated to walking up and down my street, then to walking around the block every day.
      The distance increased, then the speed.
      Then I started running little spurts during my walks, then to alternating 1km runs with 1km walks.
      And now I can do a continuous 10k (which I totally did for the first time this morning...so full of myself about it today, it’s disgusting.)
      Just do something everyday and slowly increase speed and duration, next thing you know you’ll be one of those odd “running people” (who I never understood pre-op, but now totally get, lol)

        Happy Sunday! I like weird people. Normal people are boring! :) I began following you and wanted to know if there are any other members you would recommend? My surgery is 8/29/19 and I want to learn as much as possible. Have a great day and thanks so much for the website.

        I love it! Thanks!
