Sugar free electrolyte powder



Recommended Posts

Hi All!

I'm going to have my sleeve in just under three weeks. Knowing that I go back to work at my busy NYC ER (I'm a nurse) at 2 weeks post op, I'm in search of a really good electrolyte powder that's sugar free. Summer is our down season and I'll have no heavy lifting (I work in pediatrics), but I'd love to have something in powdered form so that I don't have to carry bottles of fluids in with me for my shifts.

If all else fails, I know my colleagues will hook me up with a bag of fluids during my break, but I'd rather it not come to that....

Thanks for your recs.

I've tried several of them but they tend to give me heartburn. I only use them on long bike rides or when running longer distances when the weather is hot.

costco has individual packets. I'm sorry I don't know the calories, but saw them sampling them today while I was there.

I still drink Core or smart Water at 3 months out.

Good luck!

      Behavioral modification is the key... I went to my first session of Cognitive Behavior Therapy (CBT) and it was incredible! We talked about the purpose behind certain unwanted behaviors as all behavior is developed to serve a purpose, being ready, willing and able, thought mapping (finding the origin/pattern of thought that ultimately contributes to certain unwanted behaviors), and replacing one behavior with another that's as equally rewarding, if not more.

      Having another blah food day today.  My lunch has been sitting here with me for almost two hours and all I've managed to eat was maybe 1/2 oz of grilled chicken and 2 cucumber slices.  Eff it, I'm done.
