Hi,

My doctor doesn’t permit any Protein Shakes after 2 weeks. I know it’s unusual, but he is a really good doctor.

I’m having trouble meeting my Protein count! Can I just put protein into the food I’m eating? If so, do you have any suggestions?

I’m allergic to nuts if they makes any difference.

Thanks

I am just using unflavoured Protein Powder and adding it to my drinks/soups etc :) has no nasties and isn't horribly sweet like all the Protein Shakes :)

I use unflavored pea Protein in Soups, and vanilla protein powder in smoothies and yoghurt. It is the only way I can keep my protein up to where it should be.

I found that one scoop of the Protein powder I use (PEScience Select) mixes very well with TwoGood Yogurt (80 calories, 2 grams of sugar, and 12 grams protein) it has a texture like frosting. I stick to having protein supplements for Breakfast since I don’t have energy for anything else.

my nutritionist also said to go off protein supplements at some point but that once a day was ok and suggested mixing protein powder in yogurt and other foods.

My doctor wanted me to stop shakes at about week nine. I always found Greek yoghurt a good way to get Protein. Also, a personal favorite of mine is dry-roasted edamame, which are super-high in protein.

If you add Protein powder to hot foods, let them cool a bit first. Adding the protein to super-hot liquids will make it clump.

I just went to my 8 year check up, and my doctor still wants me to use them. I just can’t get my Protein in without at least a shake a day. I had a really busy day at work today and I couldn’t get my normal snacking on so I’m drinking a protein 2o Water right now to make up for it. Usually I snack on cheese sticks, and turkey sticks. They sell the packs with the cheese sticks at Walmart. I eat a lot of beef Jerky, foster farms started selling little pack of cubed chicken in different flavors. Here are some pictures of my usual Snacks that help a lot.

Here's a sample for you that is appropriate for week two. It is about 1/4cup of food per meal. You might not be able to finish your tuna lunch, but you could come back in an hour or so and be able to finish it -- in the early days.

Also, don't know if your doc allows you to drink milk. My doc wants us to drink 1-2 glasses of milk per day as part of our plan to get Calcium and Protein in, but I rarely do it--cuz I don't really like it.

You can jazz up yogurt with Water drops in different fruit flavors. I like doing plain low fat Greek, cuz then I know exactly how much yogurt I'm getting relative to the additives that they put in it.

Also 3oz of swai (pangasius) is a light fish. It is a raw measurement and it shrinks a ton. So this should give you 1/4c of cooked fish (about 1 1/2-2oz cooked). And at first, you will basically only be eating protein and some meat lube (low cal, low carb, low sugar) sauces at each meal.

      I met with my surgeon on Friday.. I've completed all my tests and all my nutrition meetings as well as meeting the weight loss requirements for my insurance. We are officially submitting to insurance for approval and I was given a surgery date of January 16th 2020 (13 days before my birthday!) Fingers crossed all goes through

      Ok, now im getting old...my body gets me up at my normal 5am dog walk even when it's the weekend, vacation, and most importantly when I'm sick. So now that I have more energy, my body wants to make sure I suffer even longer during the day when I have a cold! Damn being healthy again! (:D)

      At my Primary Physician appt, the Doc said you know you lost a whole person. When you started seeing me you were 265lbs now you're 148lbs.
      She's right... I lost the fun me 😂 Joking Joking Joking. It's amazing who keeps track when you don't like insurance and browsers feeds
