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!!

      I'm going in for a sleeve revision October 4th. It worked well for me, and I am not back to my starting weight. However, a revision is strongly encouraged at this time (there are additional medical issues). I have decided to forgo the insurance process, even though I know I would eventually be approved. "Eventually" is the key issue here. I have a small window to create this to where it will not impact my work or home life as much, and waiting for the insurance approval would take over a year.

      I just read @BoredCW's status post and also want to lament the loss of my butt.  Looking at me the side, my back is basically flat from my neck to my knees.  My jeans have lovely fabric folds draping from my backside from lack of filling.
      Two days ago, I was sitting on a worn couch at the gym and I could feel the springs and count how many I was sitting on.  Told the Kid and she said she wants to find her childhood alphabet fridge magnets in the basement to spell out words and have me sit on them and do some "butt-braille-reading" 😂

        HI-LAR-ious! I love your kid!!!

        Yeah, we all suffer from noassatall syndrome. :(

        Yes. I think the spandex in jeans is the only thing that helps keep the sag below the pockets form looking ridiculous. Even leggings wrinkle there.

        Ah, our disappearing collective butts.

        I am seriously considering changing my plastics plan. I am booked for an arm lift in December, but my summer obsession with arm exercises has improved the look of them quite a bit to the point that I think I may hate my butt more than my arms. Should I do a butt lift instead?!?! In conjunction with?!?!?

        I am trying to cultivate an obsession with butt exercises but its not working so far...

      4. 2Bsmaller18

        I don't think you could do both at the same time. For me personally it's arms. I have granny wrinkles down to my elbows. I can always dover my body with tshirts, pants, etc but unless I wear long sleeves my arms are an issue. I also can't wear a small enough jacket since it fits everywhere but too tight in the arms. They measure around 13.5 inches. Can you compromise and get the smaller arm lift. I don't know if that saves much $ or recovery but if your arms improved that much maybe just a tweek will work?

      On the 3 week plateau from hell.. It seems like an endless desert with sand dunes that represent the 1-2 pounds gain then dropped from day to day. Met with my weight loss group tonight and was told its normal. That this is sometimes like a step, plateau then drop, plateau then drop. Only for the plateau's to go on longer the farther away from the surgery date I get. Much like EDM, I can't wait for the drop. 
      On top of it all, I lost my ass. Seriously.. its gone. All that cushion that I enjoyed lounging on eating what ever I ate, watching what ever was on the computer or tv... is gone. That glorious support system is vamoosed. I know this because my ass (tailbone) hurts all the time. I'm sitting on bone now and its sore. I am my own literal Pain in the Ass! (My family would say whats new, but who cares about them.. my butt hurts.) I have yet to bring a pillow with me everywhere I go to sit on, but I'm getting ready to as I sit for my job working on computers. So far losing the weight is a Pain. I hope it gets better.

        Hang in there, the plateau will end eventually. Also I feel you on the butt thing.

        I have a butt pillow. I'm not proud. :D

        The plateaus suck!!!! Keep the faith and motor on!
