Protein in my full liquid diet



Recommended Posts

I need advise, I have one more week of my full liquid diet and haven’t been consuming 60 grams of Protein. I am worried I will stall so soon because of this. Top it off this morning I got a Decaf coffee with cream and mocha. The sugar is high but need one good thing. Should I just throw it away? And does the protein affect weight loss ?

Get that Protein in. You can do it. It's not that hard. One Protein Shake has 25-30 g of protein, so drinking just 2 of them a day would meet your goal. The two week liquid diet isn't about losing weight, it's about healing from your surgery.

shakes need to become part of your life for a long time if you want to do this right. Get them in, there's some good options out there, you don't need to do the Premier Protein type shakes if you don't like them. Try skim or nut milk with powders. The best powders I've had are Xtend, Body Fortress and Isopure.

I agree! You may need to thin it out.. I just stayed with my pre-op Unjury shakes and powder. The Protein Shakes are now the easy part! I am not hungry enough to really do the pureed...

      New here just looking around. Hopefully if I have any questions this will be a good place to come for answers. I finally was able to get in to see a doctor about having a surgery and everything has been set up to get the ball rolling. Lord willing it will be able to happen in 2021. I spent to many years denying I needed help and I've just yoyoed every year, I want to be around for my daughters.
