Has anyone else been told by the nutritionist not to use Protein with collagen?

My nutrionist recommended it but never mentioned anything about mixing it. I'm drinking Protein Water mixed with some collagen right now so I'm curious.

She basically said that we shouldn't ingest it, but that it is fine to use on your skin. In fact, she highly recommended it topically. I believe she does look younger than her age!

Also, I have been doing quite a bit of reading about it and it seems to be a good thing to consume. I have arthritis and fibromyalgia and it seems like it helps. Perhaps it depends on who is using it and why?

You can consume it if you want those benefits but do not count it towards your Protein intake. It is an incomplete protein and doesn't include some of the necessary amino acids. The best protein for us is whey protein isolate and is what you want to look for when choosing a shake or powder to supplement to your food.

      I just looked through all my old pants after my pre-op pants started getting to big. Keep in mind that I wear men's pants (usually cargos) because I am so tall 5'10"/5'11" ish. I also find that men's baggies tend to fit me better.
      I started out at a 44 in waist pant and quickly found that I was back down to my 42's. So even when thise got to be too big, I had to start pulling old clothes out of storage. After finding my 38's, I thought that these would not yet fit, but when I tried them on, they fit perfectly. I also found some older pants that now fit better than I remembered. What a relief! It's not like I can pop down to the store like I could do in the US and the styles here in Sweden are all skinnt jeans which I cant stand. I also found some 36's, but I'm not mentally ready to try those on yet. The biggest challenge will be buying women's clothing again.

      slow and steady wins the race.  don't get discouraged and just keep at it. Let your sleeve do its job and try not to stress yourself out.
      hope you are all having a great summer and enjoying what your sleeve has given you.

        Great reminder about how fast you can lose weight. The mind games we play with ourselves are the worst.
