Premier protein shakes



Recommended Posts

So what are the ones that are better? I’ve been drinking Premier for the last 1.5 years!

No, I hadn't heard that. I've always used GNC Lean shakes, premade, chocolate.

Premier Protein shakes are the sample my surgeons office gives out and recommends. Did they say why not premier Protein? I am curious why.

I like Isopure drinks and drink Premier. The Premier Company was found to be overstating the amount of Protein in each drink. - https://theclassactionlawsuit.com/premier-protein-shake-settlement/amp/

I suspect that they may be wanting you to go over to a drink that is 100% whey isolate, as that is better absorbed (and more expensive) than ones made from whey blends or concentrates (such as Premier). So, yes, ideally there are others that are better, but the best one is the one that you will drink (such as Premier, if that is your choice) than an "ideal" one that sits on your shelf unused because you can't tolerate it.

By all means, try the ones that they recommend (your tastes may change after surgery anyway,) and there may be one that is "better" that you like. If not, as you can see from others, Premier is a popular choice and no one is suffering unduly by using it.

As a side note, I've never tried it, as when my wife went through this years before me, we couldn't find any of the RTD products that we liked, but there is a wider selection of powders available, and we can manipulate their taste by way of what we mix it in, and what we may add to it, so when I had my WLS, I never bothered with any of the RTD products.

Premier Protein has less than 1% Whey Protein Isolate according to the ingredients on the side of their box. Whey Protein Isolate is definitely the best source of protein for weight loss surgery patients, especially if you have a malabsorptive procedure.

She's not wrong In asking you to find better quality alternatives!

Unfortunately some RTD aren't that pure or high quality like actual isolate is.

I've seen Protein powders with 50% only content but the isolate are more like 90% protein per drink.

Yes there's a price difference but aren't you paying $2 per Premier Protein shake?

Also need to be sure of sugar and fat and carbs content per shake to get the best possible results especially in the early days post op!!

      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.
