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!!

      Still stalled. Hating every week of it. 
      I'm in that "I must be doing something wrong, I won't lose any more weight" mode of thinking.
      Hating everything about myself dull drums. If it wasn't for the stress of work, i'd probably be more upset.

      Yesterday I discovered stretchy pants. It was the first time that I walked into a normal store and dared to try on clothes in over many many years. Scary, but I found some guy chinos that I liked. I was even able to wear women's sizes even though the legs were wayyyyy too short.

      Down 31 pounds in my first month! OK, so a month and two days, but I'm counting it anyway. 😆
      At this point, I'm doing well overall. According to surgeons' instructions, I'm on soft foods for another week-ish. I'm so ready for solids - the soft foods can be such "sliders" and I have to be extra, extra careful.
      For example, my refried beans + dollop of plain Greek yogurt + tomatillo salsa verde became a problem. I never felt satisfied and felt I could have easily had a much bigger serving. Then, far worse was when I made homemade hummus - holy cow it is SO GOOD, but again - felt like I could have downed a quart, no problem. 😂
      It's (for me at least) extremely challenging to "eat mindfully" when the food is that soft. I mean for crying out loud, there's nothing to "chew on"! 😂
      So, couple of days ago - I committed to no more refried beans and no more hummus. Farewell my delicious friends. Going to focus on chicken and tuna and eggs for the time being (ground up til mushy, of course). 
      I'm hoping that once I get the go-ahead to introduce solids I will be able to feel the restriction. Because honestly? I'm only a month in, and I feel NO restriction. It's frustrating, but not the end of the world. Willpower was never my problem. But I'm so looking forward to that feeling I hear a lot on here when people say "Oh I ate half an egg and was SO STUFFED." This has....not been my experience. 😕
      Really hoping that's because my foods are so mushy/soft right now. We shall see. 
      Regardless, I'm 100 percent committed. I hear over and over how this tool is the most powerful for about a year, maybe/possibly a wee bit more. I will not sabotage that for the world. 
      So - doing my happy dance at 31 pounds down - I'm in a "weight decade" I haven't seen in a very long time. And it only gets better from here!

      Hi!
      Thank you for replying.   It means the world to me.  It also confirmed what I been feeling about which procedure to choose.   I fall into the category as you do and elected the sleeve as it seemed to be less invasive and recovery would be better and faster,  however I am so afraid to regain the weight back since I rarely eat and obesity runs in my family.   I have two siblings that had the bypass and they have been successful.  My sister was in the high 400's and is about 140 now and has been for several years since her procedure.  I guess I felt that the sleeve would allow me to have more control, however I realized that I can't control my genetics and that is one of the biggest reasons that I am here.  Yes, I have not always made the best choices but trust me when I say that I have been on the loss and regain + more rollercoaster weight ride for yrs! I have spent so much money as I am sure you have as well as many others who are going through this.  It is not easy and anyone who thinks this is a copout is crazy!!! This has been harder than anything I have done including hiring a personal trainer to kick my butt in the gym! And still with all the gym hours, clean eating "not to mention the clean eating cost" I knew it was time that I moved to the next step to finally be who I know in my head and heart cause when I see myself in the mirror,  well let's just say is not the girl I see in my mind. 
      So thanks again for your reply and I hope that we can keep in touch through our journey. 
      😊
