I can’t find the right protein shake!!!



Recommended Posts

I had my surgery on September 5 and I have purchased Protein Powder, shakes etc. and all of them are nasty!!! I know I need to be drinking them. Does anyone has any suggestions for me??

you're bound to get a bunch of different responses to this because people's tastes are all so different. That said, my favorites are/were Syntrax and Unjury products.

Unflavored Protein powder. I put it in broth, scrambled eggs, smoothies, etc. At the beginning that was the only way I could get protein in.

I have been drinking Premier Protein, it has a lot of flavors, I am actually drinking Decaf coffee with the vanilla Protein as my Creamer, not to bad.

Unfortunately, this is a situation where "individual tastes may vary" and it's going to be a bit of trial/error for you.

My favorite is the Unjury line. I like just about all the flavors and don't mind the RTD variety (others seem too thick, too sweet, almost slimy to me).

Best advice I could give: try lots of brands/types/flavors. Don't be afraid to experiment with mixing flavors (my favorite is vanilla with a little Peanut Butter and/or banana). Don't buy lots of whatever type you try until you know it's your fave.

Good luck!

The hospital sponsoring the Bariatric Support Group I attend, not my Surgical one, it has ONLY evening meetings, seems to Recommend Celebrate items. But it (KCH here in Mount Vernon) and mine ( OSU- WEXNER Medical Center in Columbus) seem to be getting into the Shake/Bariatric shake business, must be a Coming Thing. But a semi- humorous FYI, when I was rehospitalized November- December 2018 they fed me Liquicell, did They Change Their Mind or is it a case of " Do As I Say, not As I Do" Leads a curious PERSON as I Am to wonder just why?

And May I beat the TomTom for my own favorite Protein Shakes, Ensure High Protein( make sure You don't accidently pick up the 320 calorie version, you want 160 calories) in 🍓, no fakey flakey evaporated milk taste, no bitter after- taste, to me it tastes like strawberry Nesle Quik and the Wild/ Mixed berry in Ensure Max , it's pretty tolerable, might run a Dollar more than Premier Protein and it's Hench- FRIENDS but for me it's the Freshest, made in Columbus Ohio, 48 miles SW of here, Abbott Labs does a multitude of products and also very civic- minded in Franklin County.

Can't have chocolate due to allergy, but evenAtkins Strawberryis Passing Fair. Just watch out for the coffee - containing Atkins, accidently bought some , caffeine level is as Corn in Kansas in August and Precious Pouch who is better than I at Remembering Spanish said " Hola- No Mas" and proceeded to empty herself out! A Very Bad Memory I still retain!

Try GNC they let you sample little cups of their powder. I however never drank one Protein Drink after surgery because of intolerance of whey. I drank high Protein milk and high protein yogurt.

      So my surgery anniversary date is on the 24th of this month, but I had my 1-year follow up early with my surgeon this morning (I have another 1-year followup at the hospital on Monday to get my bloodwork and labs done).
      Anyhoo...my surgeon was very pleased with my results (and so where the office staff apparently, because 3 of the front desk ladies came by my exam room to give me props/high fives/generally gawk at me).
      But get this: he asked if I would be willing to come in for a future photoshoot so that I could be on a poster! And I was all, ummmm....no thanks, LOL.

        I guess I could, but the idea of being out there for all to see just skeeves me out! Nope, not for me ;)

      Today was a really tough day and I turned to food (and a watered down glass of wine). The interesting part was that I felt REALLY full after eating half my go to cheat snack, tortilla chips with cheese. So the GBP is doing its job!

      The only way I can tell that I'm losing weight is from the scale and my clothes "getting bigger".
