Protein water



Recommended Posts

I had my bypass surgery on the 12th this month and I've started to drink the Protein Water I could tolorate it before surgery and now I can't. I also cannot tolorate any of the milk or powder I'm very worried to get malnourished I don't know what to do.

Are you vomiting or do you have an upset stomach? You may want to call your dietician for options and malnutrition concerns

I'm not vomiting I just get the upset stomach where it hurts and feel like I'm gonna vomit so I stop because I don't wanna cause any damage because my surgery is so fresh

Are you drinking slowly? taking small sips then setting it down?

Yes that's all I do is sip I fill the 1oz cup they give at the hospital and I take sips from there and after every sip I wait about 5 min and it turns my stomach to where if I keep going I'm going to throw up

What brand are you drinking? Before my surgery I was trying out Premier Protein Water, with no problem. However AFTERWARDS, I couldn't stand it! I found it to be much too sweet. I had to split the bottle & mix it with equal parts water.

I found Protein 2O, which I find to be much better. The Grape & berry flavors are my favorite. I don't care for the pineapple/coconut one as much. I get them from Rite-Aid.

Perhaps a different brand might help.

Protein 20 is what I tried along with the primer. Then the milky shakes and a few different powder ones. They all don't sit right with me. I've spent so much money on different things that I don't know anymore.

I don't like the milky shakes & powders either. I'm sorry you're having a hard time finding something that works for you.

      New found appreciation for you all!
      So Im back in the US to take care of my aging father and it seems like more than ever that being bigger is the norm everywhere here. I cant say that Ive been the best, healthiest me at the moment, but I think you all Americans are doing GREAT to even be working towards the goal of getting healthier in face of all this temptation (even if you are a "slow loser"). So give all yourselves a pat on the back!
