i am now 3 weeks post op and it seems my taste buds change daily. I cannot tolerate any kind of artificial sweeteners. Day one post op i was given crystal light in the hospital and consumed it with no issue, upon discharge I purchased 2 cases. Got home and could not stand the taste, it seems to be the case with all flavored Protein powders and shakes...even the flavored waters.

Has anyone else developed a sensitivity to artificial sweeteners post op?

yes - a lot of people. Some just hate them, some get gastric distress from them. Even people years out. Fortunately, I've always been able to tolerate them - but some people can't.

Stevia,monkfruit, agave. I like Monkfruit best, stevia close 2nd, agave a little rich for my budget. Now if I was in Arizona, make My own cactus juice, somebody, I believe AZhiker uses prickly pear juice, but alas I'm planted in Central Ohio, fairly big Sugar Beet producers but that went Bye Bye with my surgical slashing day!

I have never tried Monkfruit, I will explore it. Agave I like but per my nutritionist it is not permitted at least not for the next couple of months as any type of sigar/carbs will slow my weight loss.

Same happened to me...almost couldn't even stomach the shakes! I am 6 months out and slowly coming around - I drank some diet tonic Water and didn't barf!!! No gin, just the tonic - to address my old lady leg cramps!!!

I purchased a lot Premier Protein shakes prior to surgery, came home and could not stand the taste. I ended up buying some Protein Powder (plain) and drinking it with almond milk. Literally the day before surgery, I was fine.

I'm 4 weeks out & it got better for me. The first couple weeks the shakes and Protein waters were not great. I'm still a little heh on the protein waters - the sweetness is weird - but the shakes are good again. I also alter them a lot - tend to put half a shake in an iced coffee kind of thing.

Can't stand sweet stuff much anymore myself. I do put flavored drink powder in my water bottle but only enough to flavor the Water a little bit. I drink Protein Drinks in the mornings but can't stand Premier Protein drink or shakes anymore. YUCK!!!

      So my surgery anniversary date is on the 24th of this month, but I had my 1-year follow up early with my surgeon this morning (I have another 1-year followup at the hospital on Monday to get my bloodwork and labs done).
      Anyhoo...my surgeon was very pleased with my results (and so where the office staff apparently, because 3 of the front desk ladies came by my exam room to give me props/high fives/generally gawk at me).
      But get this: he asked if I would be willing to come in for a future photoshoot so that I could be on a poster! And I was all, ummmm....no thanks, LOL.

      Today was a really tough day and I turned to food (and a watered down glass of wine). The interesting part was that I felt REALLY full after eating half my go to cheat snack, tortilla chips with cheese. So the GBP is doing its job!

      The only way I can tell that I'm losing weight is from the scale and my clothes "getting bigger".
