sick of protein shakes..

Are you lactose intolerant? It may be that you are using whey Protein. Change the type of protein you are using.

I agree with the above poster. Lactose intolerance is not all that uncommon after surgery

No, I haven't had any problems. I still drink one every day even now 7 months post-op. I love the chocolate taste. I use premade GNC Lean shakes.

I just cant do Protein Shakes anymore, I got burnt out on them by having to drink so much of them before and after surgery. My doctor said they wanted me to get my Protein from food vs shakes when I was released to eat anything.

For some reason I stopped pooping when I stopped drinking my shakes. I’m on soft foods and manage to get in 30-50g of Proteins a day but still no poop🙃

      How can a bowel movement make me lose almost 4 pounds? How much poo am I full of?

      I met with my surgeon on Friday.. I've completed all my tests and all my nutrition meetings as well as meeting the weight loss requirements for my insurance. We are officially submitting to insurance for approval and I was given a surgery date of January 16th 2020 (13 days before my birthday!) Fingers crossed all goes through

      Ok, now im getting old...my body gets me up at my normal 5am dog walk even when it's the weekend, vacation, and most importantly when I'm sick. So now that I have more energy, my body wants to make sure I suffer even longer during the day when I have a cold! Damn being healthy again! (:D)

      At my Primary Physician appt, the Doc said you know you lost a whole person. When you started seeing me you were 265lbs now you're 148lbs.
      She's right... I lost the fun me 😂 Joking Joking Joking. It's amazing who keeps track when you don't like insurance and browsers feeds
