My surgeons office sells Health Wise brands of soup/broth that have 15g Protein per packet. I’ve enjoyed both the creamy Tomato and beef broth. Not sure if it can be ordered online or found in local stores. It’s a nice change up from the protein shakes!

Purée your favorite Soup and sip slowly. Not to spicy tho. Maybe blend fruit and take a few bites. Ptotein Water will help. Just sip every 5 minutes

I am 10 days post op, once I went to stage 2 I incorporated Oikos triple zero yogurt and farina, loving both. The shakes I use are premier and I am really happy with them as well. Good luck and keep trying out your options

I stuck with sugar free popsicles, sugar free pudding, chicken noodle Soup without the noodles, and Protein Shakes for a long time.

some people become lactose intolerant after surgery - some temporarily, others permanently. It's possible that's what's going on with the dairy products.

I think this is whats happening to me honestly. I try the Protein Shakes in many flavors and I become incredibly gassy my back is killing me today I am straight up miserable! Idk I am desperate to eat something that doesnt taste like a cow smells. I never used to have this problem I looooove cottage cheese and yogurt but now it kills me. And because I ate so much broth before rhe surgery I am literally over it now. Not a great start but I am happy I did this and I know it will all pay off I just need to be able to get my protwin some other way.

Protein flavored water. I think I bought it at Walmart. It kind of has a dry after taste. It tasted better ice cold (to me at least).

@Kimishep06 if you buy chicken broth and romen noodles and mix a little of the seasoning packet from the romen Soup into the chicken broth it helps A LOT.

Isopure has a Protein infusion in different fruit flavors. You add it to your Water and then shake it. It is cloudy while you are shaking it but once it clears, it tastes pretty close to Crystal Light. I am drinking the Mixed berry flavor. I bought some popsicle molds and filled them with the Isopure infusions.

Fairlife has Protein Shakes that are 14 ounces that have been a godsend. When I got a hunger pain, I would drink half a bottle and that seemed to help quite a bit.

There is a product, Sans Sucre Mousse mixes. I make it with skim milk. The mix provides 3 gm of protein and the skim milk adds 9 grams.

For my broths, I bought chicken, beef and turkey broth bases. I added whole carrots and celery stalks cut in half and a whole chicken. After it was done, I pulled out the chicken and the vegetables and froze them, leaving me with a very savory broth.

Needless to say, sugar free pudding and Jello have helped a lot. My doctor allowed only one pudding per day but that was really all I needed.

Surprisingly, my hubby eating in front of me hasn't bothered me nearly as much as I thought it would. The only truly rough time was when he cooked bacon for BLTs for our daughter who was visiting and himself. But as Gloria Gaynor sang, "I Will Survive".

Try non dairy Protein Shakes. My dietician gave me options for dairy and non dairy. Also I feel you with the broths! I am 6days post op and I have bought all organic soups: butternut squash creamy Soup, potato leek creamy Soup, non organic: cream of mushroom and cream of chicken and Tomato Soup.

Im not getting in my full Protein requirement but my main focus is staying hydrated.

I even am aloud SF pudding and Jello, smooth yogurt (I bought drinkables) and Gatorade zero and of course my Protein shakes.

Hang in there!! I know it’s difficult Im as well on stage 2 of semiliquid/liquid stage

My stats: 
HW recorded: 270
Surgery 8/19/19  weight: 266.8
Today’s weight 8/25/19 256.6

      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. 
      😊

      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?

      5. ms.sss

        The difference in price for a mini arm lift and the full arm lift at my surgeon is less thank 2K and probably not worth the savings. May as well pay the extra bit and get the full arm lift as my sag also reaches my elbows. You are right though, my arms see the light of day way more than my butt does...I'll have to see if the continued butt exercises will change my mind down the road (but it's looking more and more that a butt lift is in my future)

        P.S. At the beginning of my 2 week pre-op diet, my upper right arm measured 17.75 inches in circumference. Now its 10. And that is with the extra skin still.

      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.

      2. FluffyChix

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

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